Spotted – White Cult Tires


After the huge success of their Gum topped Dehart Tires, it looks like Cult are trying out a white version. These samples are being tested right now after 2 months of shredding they are still looking good. I’m sure we’ll be seeing these badboys hit the market later this year, but the question is will they be as popular?

Spotted – Stress Camo UBS Seat


Russian brand Stress just posted up some photos of their new UBS Camo pivotal seat which will be available this Summer. Let’s be honest who doesn’t love camo these days? This thing uses a nice and fat piovtal base with a tough camo upper with Kevlar on the front and rear to prevent any tears or damage your seat may suffer when things get loose…

Get a closer a look after the jump…

Animal M5 Sprocket Out Now


Apparently the Animal team tested these sprockets for over a year … ’nuff said really. The M5 Sprocket has a classic five-spoke design, made from CNC’ed 6065 series aluminium and comes in 25 or 28 tooth sizes in black or polished raw colours (and if it matters it weighs 2.6 oz… or 73 grams) It’s now available worldwide from your local Animal Bikes dealer, mail order or direct from Animal’s web store.

Shadow BTR Hub – Technical Review


Head over to the Shadow website for an in-depth look at their street ready BTR Cassette Hub and what makes it so tick (literally…). I’m into the large 17mm axle and true 14mm female bolts on this one. If you’re heavy on your bike and into your pegs than this one is worth looking into, especially with the dual cromo hubguards!

Spotted – Eclat Blind Freecoaster


Here’s another sneak peek of Shane Weston’s Blind Freecoaster from Eclat. This hub has more people talking about it than that tall chap that supposedly kicked the shit out of Justin Bieber this week. Shane seems stoked on the hub and it’s reliability, and I’m sure a lot of you will be happy to hear that this thing is going to have a decent amount of slack adjust-ability;

Slack adjustments are done through “slack disc’s” which come in three sizes. Quarter crank of slack is the middle disc, that’s what I run.

Whilst we haven’t got an official release date yet I have it on good authority from the boys in Cologne that the Blind Hub is almost finished and should be out this year. Fingers crossed eh?

Simple 2014 Catalog

After reminiscing about an old Simple sprocket I had a few years back it was sweet to see this pop up today. Simple Bike Co. just released their 2014 catalog flipbook giving you a look at their new 2014 product including frames to bars, stems, seats and more along with photos from their team riders shredding. Stoked to see Simple still killing it, take a look and see…
