Eclat’s new much anticipated Venom Peg is available now worldwide. Check out this neat promo video giving you a better look at these street weapons…
“The Venom peg uses a two-piece steel/plastic design based on the ‘classic sleeve’ system. Our aim was to create a plastic sleeve peg with a diameter similar to a standard steel peg. This lead us down the route of a steel/plastic design with a slim crmo inner peg wrapped in a generous thickness of our specially developed (for the Nathan Peg) hardwearing nylon compound. When testing the prototypes we saw these pegs going beyond 6 months of hard riding! In a nutshell, if you want to grind fast give these a go.”
Material: 4140 crmo liquid heat-treated with separate nylon/fiberglass sleeve
Size: 14mm axle, adapter included for 3/8″
Length: 4″ / 4.5″
Outer Diameter: 38mm
Features: low friction nylon/fiberglass for faster grinding / sold as single / small diameter plastic peg
Weight: (4.5″): 193g (6.80oz), (4″) :TBC

Madera have just released a whole bunch of their parts in this new “Rust” colourway. Kind of a wild burnt orange/copper, looks good to me! Head over to their site to check it out in closer detail.
This is rad. Working within the bike industry I’ve always got my eye out for upcoming technology from outside BMX, and lets face it, huge brands like Specialized have a hell of a lot more revenue to spend on R&D than say Odyssey so some pretty wild ideas get tried out. It looks like hub manufacturer DT Swiss along with component brand Spank are working on a mountain bike hub that uses magnets to engage the drive a opposed to the standard pawl/spring setup.
You can check out the full article HERE.
Pretty interesting concept and I’d love to see how this would work in person. Pretty sure there is some way you could get that setup to work as a freecoaster maybe?…
Spotted here is another look at Tree’s prototype Pedals we caught a glimpse of last week. This better look shows that these are clearly an unsealed alloy pedal with removable pins. I’m into the low profile and tough knurling on these, expect to see more info from Tree real soon.
For this weeks Products segment, The Union‘s Kurt shows us the ins and outs of the rust-orange colourway from Madera, the AK grip from Cult, Shadow Conspiracy‘s new Mid Tripod seat, Sunday‘s Freeze front load stem and lastly the Sumo sprocket from Stolen. Head over to The Union to get the full low-down and specs on all these great products.

All these bits ‘n’ bobs are being shipped worldwide as I type (with one hand) and will be with your local Subrosa dealer or mail order any day now. Watch this space for more info as it comes…. and somebody please get me one of those cool-ass rucksacks.
Our friends at Kink Bikes just hit us up with an exclusive first look at their new Stealth Pivotal Seat system which they have been working on for a few years now.
I first saw the idea when they had it on show at Interbike two years ago and was intrigued as to how it works. With the pivotal bolt tightening from directly under the seatpost, it removes the need for a slit on the top of the seat giving it a much cleaner look. Matt from Kink got in touch and explained their new take on the Pivotal system.
The Jet Fuel parts from Snafu caused a lot of interest at Interbike year back in September. Today, Dan’s Comp announced that they just got a shipment of it in and it’s ready for you to get your grubby mitts on if you have the spare change. Click here to check it all out but be prepared to pay a bit extra…
