The BROOKS at it again. We just got a word that Brooks will be releasing soon the very first item under their new label – John Boultbee. The Criterion Mk.1 Jacket is the first in a line of what will soon be regarded as the world’s finest jackets for cycling, carrying the label John Boultbee, not to mention the fact that behind it stands Brooks name, and all which that implies. The outer surface of the John Boultbee Criterion Mk. 1 is Ventile, a waterproof and windproof treated woven cotton textile designed in England during the Second World War for use in pilot’s suits. Ventile is also popular among birdwatchers and naturalists because is produces almost no noise when in use. Cyclists entering classrooms, movie theaters, or meetings behind schedule will appreciate this feature. For more info check out Brooks Blog.

Create a UK bike company released second version of their fixed/single speed bike. Bikes available in all kind of candy-colored setups just like bikes at Republic Bikes or Urban Outfitters. This second version uses better components and also it is a lot cheaper than their first version of these bikes. So far online price is 199 UK pounds. New lower price and lots of better components makes this bike a pretty good bargain.
