NAHBS 2013: Arundel w/ New Adjustable and Aero Cages, Quality Bike Pump
We’ve been huge fans of Arundel and got to rock some cages while testing out the Parlee Z5 with a mini-review of the Mandible cages here. Among other products, Arundel is releasing a new adjustable cage deemed the “Looney Bin”. It ratchets open and shut like a Giro bike helmet and will hold anything from a water bottle to a wine bottle. Sounds great for the commuter bike right? Expected release date is May.

Arundel revamped their Chrono cage after UCI’s new rules cracked down on Arundel’s first Chrono design. Measuring 11.5 cm at the largest width, they slimmed this one down to 10cm to keep it within regulations. Also the bottle valve itself is redesigned. Retail’s $80 and it’s set to release in the next couple months. Replacement bottles can be purchased aftermarket.
While showing off some flashy carbon Mandible cages with custom flare, Arundel hinted their new reversible side load cages. Available in white and black, they’ll retail for $30 and will hit the market around April .
Arundel’s new floor pump is designed to be the only pump you’ll ever need. All parts will be available for purchase off their website in case anything on the pump breaks.
The bottom is made of heavy forged steel with the brand imprinted. It gets a wooden handle and a valve that’ll take both schrader and presta.
To inflate a schrader valve, unscrew the standard presta endcap. Retail is $130 and it’ll be available April 1st through dealers.
