Grand Cru

Will this be the week Milwaukee breaks 40 deg? Hopefully, it's been gloomy and raining the last couple of days and it's putting a real damper on some trail riding. It will get nicer soon and I'm getting excited for some epic rides/brevets. It doesn't help that we just got some new Grand Cru cranks in (more sizes soon).

Also in stock are some classic Grand Cru 36H sealed-bearing Freewheel hubs (front and rear).On top of Grand Cru and Schmidt hubs/lights, we will also be carrying some more great new items in the name of randonneuring/light touring. You'll just have to wait and see what they are!

Schmidt SON Delux Hubs / Edelux LED Headlights

We are working on expanding our selection; but for now we have a pretty good stock of front hubs and the LED headlights. We are waiting for the Schmidt handlebar mounts ($38) so you can mount these 60cm headlights to the cronometro knob on your fork blade. But we've also seen Peter White use a Shimano Flight Deck computer bracket if your on a budget. More updates as parts arrive!

SKS Bottle Cage Adapter

I've been waiting for something like this to come out! I've used adapters that mount to the saddle rails but they've always looked wonky when I didn't have a water bottle on. SKS have created a water bottle cage adapter with the same cam system that is used on their ever popular Xtra-Dry clip on fenders (also pictured above).

I've done some long rides with this and it has worked great! I used a Velocity Water Bottle Cage because they're light and they really hold onto the bottle. Perfect for a track bike without water bottle mounts and it's easy to take on and off!
