Though the blog has been quiet, I haven't been idle. It's been a wonderful season, but now that it's cold I finally have time to work on new ideas and new products. There's a lot coming to this website for the next season, but in the mean time here's a handy listing of new things we're offering!
I've been riding Challenge's clinchers and tubulars for cyclocross and gravel, and they're far and away my favorite. So I stock them now. I've got a limited selection in the store (though more are coming in all the time), but I can special order anything from their rather extensive catalog. Give it a look!
Velocity makes all their rims just across the lake in Grand Rapids, Michigan. They offer a wide selection, from box-section rims for commuting to incredibly strong and light road rims, and a whole lot in between. They're my go-to for alloy rims, and I'm looking forward to using them more often going forward.
SwissStop Brake Pads
It turns out these are kind of hard to find, which is a shame since they're the only pads I'll run on carbon rims. So I'm importing them now. From outstanding carbon rim brake compounds to a wide selection of compounds and shapes for disc brakes, SwissStop has you covered to stop with confidence no matter the conditions. I'm slowly adding more shapes and compounds to the store, but if you don't see what you need have a look through their catalog and let me know what you want.
Lastly, though the bulk of my work is custom and made to order, I'm always working to expand my selection of stock offerings. Stay tuned for some pretty outstanding new products to hit the store next season.
'Til then, enjoy the winter and ride outside!
