Who doesn’t like a good Hawian shirt eh? I know I’m a big fan of the old floral print and was particularly excited when I saw these new Hucker signature seat’s up on Demolition‘s Instagram today. Lovely stuff.

Here’s a sneak peek of @mikehucker‘s new signature Hawaiian tripod seats! If you’re at #texastoast this weekend, you can get a glimpse of it in person on Hucker’s bike. These bad boys will be available early 2015. 

Mutiny Jeff Wescott Signature Comb Frame

comb-frame (528x280) You may or may not have seen little bits and pieces of the Jeff Wescott signature Mutiny Comb frame but now Mutiny have dropped the specs and this snap of the Comb in all it’s golden glory, no word on when it’ll be exactly out but it should be around springtime.  This little number will be available in flat black as well as what Mutiny are dubbing ‘Honey Gold’. I’m really feeling the subtly high-spec features on this frame like the BB wishbone, the elliptical down tube and the taller head tube. 20.9″, 21.25″ and 21.5″ 74.9 degree head tube 4.9″ head tube length Plain gauge top tube and elliptical down tube 9.1″ stand-over Investment cast wishbone 13.2″ – 13.7″ chain stay length Drop out designed to sit flush with peg Clearance for 2.4″ tyres Removable brake lugs Integrated seat clamp

As seen over on our Instagram page, is a look at a new Alloy Crank Primo are working on. Using the new almost 15 year old Powerbite crank, it looks like the boys in Cali have made it two piece and are now using a 16 spline pinch interface rather than the traditional square-taper the original crank were always famous for. Looking forward to seeing more on these soon…

So we’ve been seeing a few sneak peeks of these for the past year, but here is the final look at Dan Lacey’s new collab signature tire with KHE. Designed with KHE and Federal Bikes and produced by world renowned tire manufacturer Schwalbe in Germany, these 2.35″ lightweight street rubbers will be available next month in both a regular beed and a lightweight folding version. Lacey, Bruno and a few other of the Federal crew have been running these things all year and have passed with flying colours. Could this be the comeback of the folding tire?…,

“Absolutely buzzin on my my Signature tyre collaboration with KHE dropping in the next month or so. Here’s a sneak peak at the @federalbikes tread designed by my homie Aggie. They will be available with regular beaded or a lightweight foldable option.”

Fitbikeco Savage Frame

Savage_MatteBlack_r (528x297)
Fresh out of Fitbikeco’s deep old catalogue is Dan Conway’s new signature frame dubbed the Savage.  This thing is built in the US with thicker gauge tubing, 1/4″ thick dropouts and double headtube gussets for strength with a tight 75.5 degree headtube angle and high 11.8 ” BB for maneuverability.  The most interesting thing I found on this frame are the slots in the inner BB shell that allow your bearing-bashing weapon of choice to be held nice and steady whilst you swing that lump-hammer around like an angry Spartan.

The fine folks at OTX Design and Mr George French have been bombarded with questions’s about Odyssey’s new Tom Dugan pedal so have released a bunch of photos and info about it.

“The Tom Dugan pedals will be available in plastic or aluminum and feature a special internal configuration that allows us to combine a large spindle with a thin body shape while featuring full 360 degree concave and bigger diameter pins (on the PC) for incredible grip. The pedal body is also significantly larger and feels amazing under your feet. All of our team riders are fighting to get their hands on these. The price will be on par with our existing plastic and metal pedals. They should be available in early 2015.”
