North Bay Fire Relief Effort

North Bay Fire Relief

We donated $1,500 from the sale of our promotional items and bottle openers to the North Bay Fire Relief Effort.  A great big thank you to those of you who stepped up and bought these items.  Our thoughts and best wishes continue to be with those affected by the devastating 2017 North Bay fires.

New Products

12 mm Low Mount Disc Dropouts

They've been a long time coming but they're finally in stock, 12 mm low mount disc dropouts!  Currently they're only available in steel, 58 degrees, without eyelets, DR2037, but we're working on expanding our selection to include steel and titanium in 48 and 58 degrees, with and without eyelets.

DR2037 has an integrated ISO disc mount located between the stays, and no eyelets. The right side is machined from 3/8" thick, and the left side is machined from 1/2" 4130 steel. The chainstay and seatstay tabs have a 58 degree included angle. The arced seatstay tab can be cut by the builder to accommodate angles up to 75 degrees. The tabs are 5 mm thick. The right dropout with the hanger installed is 8 mm thick. It is relieved on both sides and is chamfered 45 degrees x 1 mm around the outside profile and windows.

Water Bottle Studs

We now make water bottle studs in 6/4 titanium, MS0019, and 304 stainless steel, MS1019.  These studs are meant to be used with frames that have a dropper post. They're external to the seat tube so that nothing interferes with the dropper post. These M5 x .8 threaded studs are 6.4 mm long, the boss is 3 mm tall x 9.5 mm diameter, and they're mitered for 1-3/8" seat tubes. Any M5 nut can be used to hold it to a water bottle cage, and there is plenty of length to use a NyLock nut.


Heatsink for T47 Bottom Bracket Shell

Our new products include a heatsink/purge fitting for our 92.5 mm T47 bottom bracket shells, FT5009.  If you already have our FT5004 then you only need to buy the interchangeable draw bolt (FT5029) and center (FT5019).

Inserts for SRAM Derailleurs

Our newest right side inserts, DR4091 (bare) and B4091 (black anodized), are compatible with our round, rear 1-1/2" Wright style and flat mount dropouts.  They have a hanger for SRAM derailleurs and are threaded M12 x 1.  The axle center to the derailleur hanger bolt center is 34 mm; this meets SRAM's 30 - 36 mm rear derailleur hanger specifications.  They are compatible with the DT Swiss RWS and PMW combination head 12 mm skewers only. Made from bare or black anodized 6061 aluminum.
