This stem is a closeup of Shadow pro’s Ben Hucke’s bike. Also look for a complete rear wheel giveaway with the corvus rim and btr hub in copper tie die in February." via Shadow

"Take a closer look at the BUSHTREKKA and you will find a product that has been developed specifically for bicycle touring. The trailer frame itself has features that set it apart from any other trailer on the market.

Take for example the pivoting wheelset. By utilising two wheels under each side of the trailer, harnessed to a pivoting rocker frame, the trailer can easily absorb most of the uneven terrain in its environment. Additional to this, each set of wheels operates independently of the other, creating a clutter free underbelly on the trailer. By adjusting the positioning of each pivot frame vertically, the ride height of the unit can be adjusted for bikes from 20" up to 29".

Storage is also at a maximum for this trailer. By using every piece of available space, we've created three main storage compartments with over 41 gallons (180 litres) of storage. Easy access at all times, even when set up, ensures you have what you need, when you need it.

Our trailer also features fully adjustable levelling jacks to ensure no matter what terrain your setting up on, the unit can be presented to a horizontal position for sleeping comfort.

Couple the trailer with the remarkable features of the Oversize or Original Tentcot and you are seriously set to travel. The TentCot conventienly folds away atop the trailer with its own waterproof cover to suit.

There is nothing else quite like this trailer. It is the bicycle tourists best companion." via Kamp-Rite

Zack Gerber Q&A + Bike Check

"I think it's often overlooked that we all have lives outside of BMX. So what kind of hobbies and other things take up your time? I enjoy drawing. Mostly dumb cartoons. I also enjoy tinkering. I like taking things apart and seeing how they work. I enjoy theoretical conversations about the sociological and cultural influences in today's modern world. I enjoy understanding and talking about the hows and whys of human life. I'm also into politics, conspiracy theories, and UFOs. Recently, I've been making large models of triangles, and examining the pythagorean theorem by hand. I know I sound crazy, but it's interesting stuff to me. I like thinking." Full article at Vital.

"Check out a very early sneak peek of the new Cinch 22mm’s. As you can see we’ve added a investment cast spindle boss which helps for an improved junction between the arm and the spindle boss. The arms have been beefed up a little too.We decided to go with a 22mm axle over a 24mm axle for the simple reason that while the axle may be slightly stronger, that the energy still has to go through somewhere and that point would likely be the crank arm. So the 22mm axle with our newly revised arm seems to make the most sense to us. These along with a whole grip of new stuff will be out in August." via Mutiny
