In the same vein as Shimano’s Ice Tech brake pads, Scrub Components has developed new “Chill” brake pads.
The Chill uses their organic pad material and add a thin finned heat sink to the back plate. They’re drop in replacements for Elixir, old and new Shimano, and Formula brakes. They’re claiming 20% faster cooling and lower max temps. $35 per wheel, versus $28 for their standard pads.

Not brand new but cool are their stainless rotors, a more cost conscious option than top of the line ceramic-alloy composite with magnesium carrier. They have an alloy carrier and retail at $100 per rotor, compared to $225.
Chris commissioned this one-off “Ti Fighter” multi position handlebar from the guys at Black Sheep for his own bike but said interest was very, very high. We heard several people tell him they’d buy one in the few minutes we were at his booth. Like it, let him know and maybe they’ll make more!
