We have added 1-1/4" diameter x 25.4 mm wide options to our selection of steel (DR2092) and titanium (DR0092) Syntace dropouts that are compatible with the Syntace X-12 System. The right side frame component accommodates a concentric or eccentric threaded insert, allowing the wheel to be centered in the frame following any inconsistencies in frame construction. The complete assembly for the Syntace X-12 System requires a right side hanger with screw, skewer, and threaded insert that are available for purchase separately here.
Low Mount Disc Dropouts
We now offer our titanium and stainless steel low mount disc dropouts in 58 degree versions: DR0031 and DR1031 (with eyelets), and DR0035 and DR1035 (no eyelets). In addition we have updated all styles so that there is consistancy across all products. The geometry will remain unchanged, but all materials will be 5 mm thick and relieved on the outside face. Revised dropouts will be sold as current inventory runs out. Our full thickness expedition versions will remain the same.

Meet Your Maker Swap Meet
Bruce Gordon Cycles will be hosting a Swap Meet at his shop at 409 Petaluma Blvd. S in Petaluma on July 23rd. A pre-swap 25 mile road ride will leave from his shop at 9 am, the swap meet will take place from 11 am - 3 pm. For more information visit the Meet Your Maker Tour website.
In May and June we partnered with Blue Collar Bikes, who hosted the first Meet Your Maker Tour of the year in Sacramento, to raise money for PB SOC and Chako Pit Bull Rescue and Advocacy. Blue Collar raised over $11,000 and we were happy to be able to contribute another $1,500. Thanks to all of you who came out for the ride, bought raffle tickets, and supported the vendors.
For the months of July and August we will support a bicycle advocacy group that is in our back yard, Rich City Rides. Located in Richmond, CA, Rich City Rides formed in August 2012 to use cycling as a method to increase healthy activity, community skill building, build businesses and create opportunities for the most vulnerable members of marginalized communities. Check out all the great activities that they organize to support their local community on their Facebook page, and show your support by visiting them at the Rich City Rides Community Shop at 1500 MacDonald Ave.
We appreciate your support!
