Saturday is here again! That means it’s time to take a closer look at some fresh products for you to deck your bike out with. This week we take a closer look at And Forks 23 fork, The Shadow Conspiracy‘s Sano brakes, Fit‘s Mac bars, Tree Bicycle Co.‘s Collet stem and Subrosa‘s Bitchin’ cranks. So let’s get rolling with the 5th edition! Check it!
After a little bit of a delay, the first shipment of 23 And Forks are getting close to finally becoming available. These fully post-weld heat-treated 4130 seamless Japanese chromoly forks feature legs that taper from 32mm to 25mm diameter, internal butting on the legs, a 165MM butted CNC machined one-piece steerer tube, 5mm thick laser cut drop outs, built in machined headset race, with a CNC machined recessed And Forks logo, a 20G CNC machined 6061-T6 aluminum plug pressed into the steerer tube for extra strength and finally a CNC machined 6061-T6 aircraft grade aluminum headset cap with a CNC machined logo.
This is the 23mm version which features the steeper rake and the unique dropouts to fit your pegs. This version of the fork will be available in clear coat raw, black and chrome.
And Forks will also have their similar 33mm offset version available as well.
These will be landing worldwide soon. You can find out more about And Forks by visiting their website at AndForks.com.
Looking for a new stem that is a little different than what all your friends are running? Here’s a look at the Collet topload stem from Tree Bicycle Co.. This stem is made from 7075-T6 aluminum and features the collet head tube clamp system which is a compression based system that is unlike other stems on the market. This design allows four bolts, two to hold the compression of the stem on the head tube and two to hold the bars in place. Tree have also CNC machined the Collet stem for a smooth and knee friendly design. The stem features a length of 53mm and a rise of 8.4mm with a 30mm stack height (drop load) or a rise of 25mm with a 30mm stack height (top load and weigh in at 8 oz.. Both versions of the Collet stem are available in black, blue, red, raw and gold.
