SENZA bike lock

Interesting idea for a bike lock from Jaryn Miller.  The Senza system makes a bike completely secure. The whole system is incorporated into the bike itself making it easier to simply grab and go, and also provides safety for quick stops. The hadlebars seperate into three pieces. The central piece remains in place on the frame, while the two removed handles lock together, offering more space, and versitiliy than a standard U-Lock. Furthermore, if a thief were to cut the lock off, it renders the bike virtually unridable, as there are no handle bars. In addition, the lock on the rear of the bike is used to secure the back tire and seat post.

Bike tools you can’t leave home without.

TL1620

If you ride a lot then you know that it is always smart to carry bike tools with you just in case. I finally got tired o carrying multiple wrenches and pliers “just in case” , so lately I’ve been looking for a way to have all the necessary tools with me without the weight of a toolbox in my bag.  Now I do believe I  found a perfect combo for every bike rider out there.

Velocity’s B43′s are the bomb!

Urban1cycle got our hand’s on a set of Velocity B43′s, and totally fell in love with them. With the deep 43mm triple walled rim it make’s the Deep V look like child’s play. To some the B-43′s are too deep, to others its perfection.. The big question that was up in the air was how the wheel would perform with brakes. On my Se Lager I use a front brake on my single speed setup.. thus making people question the performance of the wheel with the brake.

After dropping the wheels off @ 66Fixed in St.pete, Fl. Micheal tuned up the brakes, making sure the toe in is perfect on the wheel is very important to make the braking the best it can be. Over time yes the color will probably wear down, but if your interested in a deep high quality wheel, the B43 is the way to go..

Here are some specs of the Velocity B43:
The B43 AKA the Brisbane43, at 43mm deep, triple walled, and in drillings up to a 48h the B43 is the ultimate rim for tricking, and bike polo. If you’re looking for stiffness, rigidness, pure strength, and the bling that goes with it, roll these on your whip.

LexCarbon Monospoke front clincher

This is totally a sick wheel, not sure how sick it is for $1665 though haha.
Cycling technology has advanced so well that it is now possible to create a wheel strong enough to support a person with only one spoke. This here is the LexCarbon Monospoke and according to FGB it costs approximately $1665 for one wheel.

Here is a video of it spinning..
