Week in Review: An 11-pound mountain bike, new gravel bikes, a wood bike & more!

week-in-review-2016-6-18

With several new gravel road bikes debuting this past week, that category is coming into its own and even starting to see some diversification within it. We also saw a wood road bike and perhaps the most insane lightweight build ever, resulting in an 11.1lb mountain bike that goes so far beyond the standard hacks it’s simply got to be seen. There were also some new bags and clothes, new gadgets to simplify dropper post handling, and (as usual) so much more!

Pello peddles new kids’ bike line, focuses on light weight, high quality

static1.squarespace.com

Kids’ bikes are a funny thing. Many parents often cringe at the thought of spending big bucks on something their child will quickly outgrow, but at the same time you want to get them a bike they’ll actually ride. A lot of that comes down to weight – if the bike is a 1/3rd the weight of the child (or more), they’re less likely to actually want to pedal the thing around. Then there’s the whole quality/durability issue where the bike needs to be strong enough to withstand repeated drops and crashes, but still functional and easy to use.

Lately, there have been a lot of ideas on what the “ultimate kids’ bike” would be, but for newcomer Pello, the answer is simple, light weight, high quality bikes that don’t cost a fortune…

week-in-review-2016-5-21

‘Twas a big week, with new bikes from Cleary, Pinarello, Franco, Mongoose and more, plus all-new (and first ever for the brand) Mavic carbon fiber mountain bike wheels.

Double Vision – Kona’s carbon Hei Hei DL and Race DL get official

 

hei-hei-carbon-photos-0558 hei-hei-carbon-photos-0551

The cat might already be out of the bag after their showing at Sea Otter, but that isn’t stopping Kona from officially introducing the new carbon Hei Heis with a clever video. Typically, double vision on a mountain bike would be a bad thing, but in this case it’s how Kona racer Spencer Paxson attacks completely different rides with the same frame. That’s of course due to the Hei Hei’s duality as both a 100mm travel XC race bike and as a 100/120mm travel trail slayer. With build kits uniquely suited to each task and a light weight carbon frame, the new carbon Hei Hei may leave you seeing double…

Cycliq Fly12 front video cam now shipping to capture bad drivers everywhere

cycliq-Fly12-front-bike-light-and-HD-camera

We saw the Cycliq Fly12 front camera and headlight combo at Interbike, and it was impressive. Combining laudable recording times even when blazing the 400 lumen headlamp, it saves the footage in the event of an accident or other dangerous pranks from motorists. What sets it over the top, though, is the companion smartphone app, which lets you control its settings with ease.

Now, the Fly12 is shipping, and an Android version of the app is coming very soon. It connects to the app via WiFi and Bluetooth for both setup and video review and editing. It can even upload your ride to Strava, set the integrated bike alarm and let you share your video on social media. Check the press release after the break, and stay tuned for a giveaway on Bikerumor soon!

Week in Review: CycleOps drops the Hammer, new bikes, lots of Sea Otter & more!

bikerumor-week-in-review-2016-5-14

This past week we continued with our Sea Otter coverage, saw perhaps a few too many e-bike things, and filled in between all that with new bikes from State, Argon and more. From Sea Otter comes new tools, components and a closer look at a few things that had been introduced just prior to the show. But perhaps the biggest news this week was the all-new CycleOps Hammer, a nearly silent direct drive trainer that, dare we say it, could make indoor training enjoyable! Everything’s linked below, each opening in a new window for easy browsing…
