The 26″ beach cruiser is said to be inspired by the old school BMX bikes that exposed WTP’s designers to the fun and freedom of riding bikes.

WeThePeople Supreme hubs flip the BMX cassette driver inside out

WeThePeople_Supreme-Cassette-Hub_driver

WeThePeople_Supreme-Cassette-Hub_silver-cutaway

The new Supreme cassette hub from WeThePeople is a bit of an interesting innovation with its new freehub design that inverts the cassette driver internals to overcome some typical hub limitations and add more flexibility. By putting the pawls inside the hub (instead of on the cassette body), and in a symmetric configuration that can be flipped around, you can reconfigure it for a lefthand drive setup with no other part swaps.

New Éclat AK Pedals switch hit so you can keep grinding – Updated

eclat ak pedals

While they may not hold up to the abuse of all mountain shredding, if your rough and tumble riding is in the urban jungle, then Éclat’s new AK Pedals should give you a little extra mileage.

Designed with input from BMX pro Alex Kennedy, they’ve got curb-and-stair-rail grindable nylon/fiberglass bodies with platforms that can be switched from right to left. So, once you’ve ground down the outside edges a little too much, just unbolt them and switch left to right (and vice versa) and you’ll get a fresh edge to grind upon.

Inside is a guaranteed-for-life heat treated 4140 Chromoly axle, separated from the body by two bushings per pedal. Weight is 613g per pair. Steel threaded pins let you adjust the height and can also be replaced. Video and inside look below, plus an update with pricing and details

VP Components always has some sweet pedals to show off, but they brought something a little different this year to Taipei with a complete lineup of grips, bartape, and even a pretty cool commuter pedal. While we’ve seen a lot of locking grips that are similar aside from aesthetics, VP went their own route with a unique grip construction and new patented locking clamp. Plus, that simple yet pretty neat commuter pedal that will do the trick in case your ride home gets a little rad!

Urge updates Endur-O-Matic 2 colors & lets slip a new MIPS version

Urge_Endur-O-Matic-2_trail-mountain-bike-helmet_riding

We previewed Urge’s newly updated Endur-O-Matic 2 helmet back at the end of last summer, but availability had been fairly limited until the start of this year, and there were only a couple of color options. Following up with Urge, they sent us over some photos showing the 6 total color schemes that are available now for the goggle-friendly half shell trail lid. But in the process they also sent one image that let slip that a MIPS option was on the way to. We prodded and got some more details, on pricing and availability, plus a video of Fabien Barel and Florian Nicolai hitting their home trails in the new helmet…

Get your fun on with a unique line of fat rides from Coast Cycles, including one you’ve been waiting for… 26+?

Coast Cycles Coast Cycles Park 2

We saw these fat little gems at Interbike last fall, and they got out attention to say the least. They kind of give you the giggles without even riding one, as there really is nothing out there like them… and they’re built to take it (both giggles and serious riding). For the true 26-inch devotee, your plus sized prayers have been answered.

They’re available now, so go check out the complete line, a fun video below, and think of ways to justify just one more bike…

Transition Double gets an overhaul with new Triple DJ/Park/SS Bike

Over the years, Transition has had a few popular slopestyle models with names like the BottleRocket and most recently the Double. But with the lack of any full suspension short travel DJ bikes in their line up recently, you could probably guess Transition was up to something. Now that void is being filled with their newest creation – the Triple. Picking up where the Double left off, the Triple will launch you over that next set with the confidence of the new “26” Regular Wheelsize…”

Road to NAHBS 2016: Brad Hodges with W. H. Bradford Custom Bikes

Brad Hodges grew up steeped in early mountain biking culture in the hills around Cupertino, California. After committing himself to a life of building bicycles for a living at an early age, Brad began his career heavily influenced by BMX bikes and still finds himself coming back to trick bikes.

These days, Brad has been flexing a broader repertoire. We can expect to see a full range of road, mountain, cyclocross, and touring machines at this year’s show. While he builds mostly in steel, rumor has it that a certain ‘Tytanium’ bike will ‘steel’ the show in the WH Bradford booth this year at NAHBS…

AMS adds new stiffer, lightweight Om Stem 45 for 35mm diameter bars

All Mountain Style claimed that their pared-down, low-stack 31.8 mountain stem set a benchmark for all-mountain and enduro riding. And now they have taken that same technology and expanded it for a new, even stiffer Om stem to match the latest move to even larger 35mm diameter handlebars. The new machined stem is still just 45mm long and will pair well with the newest crop of ultra wide bars for better control on the new long toptube, slack headtube angle bikes the industry has moved towards. Take a closer look after the break…
