Gran Royale‘s new fixed tailored towards street riding for 2011 is the Creeper. The Creeper is your traditional beginner fixed.

After the first year of Gran Royale’s launch, the brand, a branch off of Eastern Bikes, has grown with popularity due to their reasonably priced products. With the success Gran Royale has seen, the 2011 Creeper should shine.

The 2011 Gran Royal Creeper features a Hi-Tensile 1020 steel frame and tubular 100% 4130 chromoly fork with enough clearance for barspins. The steel construction of the Creeper will definitely take a thrashing.

Like previously said, the 2011 Creeper is your beginner fixie, but will still use components like higher end models. Some worth mentioning are the high flange hubs, sealed bearings, and integrated head tube.

If you get tired of riding fixed and just want to cruise the streets, a flip flop hub has been added for freewheel riding. …

First introduced a few months ago, Redline is ready to release the 2011 Urbis fixed.

The Redline Urbis was made popular because of its ability to barspins with a front disc brake. And for 2011, this has not changed.

The 2011 Redline Urbis features full chromoly double butted tubes, full chromoly forks, Redline Alloy cranks with a 36t sprocket, 16t single/fixed cog, and Redline Alloy JR Cruiser.

A new color, white, is available but other than that not much has changed from the 2010 to the 2011 Redline Urbis. Retail price is around $550.

Chrome Citizen Messenger Bag

Chrome’s InterBike booth was very creative, featuring two stories, giving out free tattoos, and a live messenger bag assembly show. Chrome spoke with us about their most popular messenger bag, the Citizen.

The Chrome Citizen messenger bag comes in three sizes–small, medium and large–where we preferred the medium sized bag (for the riding we partake in). Weighing in at 2.5 pounds, dimensions of 22″ wide, 13″ high, and 7″ deep, and 26 liters (for a medium size), the Chrome Citizen is as stylish as they come.

Chrome’s Citizen bag uses a waterproof 1,000 denier cordura outer shell, weatherproof truck tarp liner, EVA foam padded shoulder strap for comfort, cross chest load stabilizer, and holds up to a 17″ laptops.

Available for your left or right shoulder, the Citizen comes in endless colors. Each size retails at a different price, $120 (small), $140 (medium), and $160 (large).

Brooks is known for clashing elegance and vintage styled products, and what caught our eye is their new Slender leather grips.

Brooks Slender Leather grips use a aluminum structure. Natural corks and leather tape are wrapped around it. You can also replace the leather tape if it gets cut or you want a different color.

Previously released is the Brooks Plump leather grips, which are made of recycled leather. When comparing the Slender and Plump grips, the Slender is much lighter (the name gives it away as well).

Three colors are available: black, light brown, and dark brown. Retail is $80.

The highly anticipated 2011 Cinelli Mash SF, which features 6 different colors over a dominant matte black finished frame, made an appearance at this year’s Interbike.

Cinelli and Mash SF succeeded in their endeavors for a “stealth” look by using matte black. As for the artwork, the minimal graphics make it easy to mask with stickers if you decide to go that route.

The difference between the 2011 and 2010 Cinelli Mash SF is the 2011 uses slightly steeper headtube and seat tube angles. Cinelli also stated that they are still producing the green/white Mash SF, and phasing out the grey/white frameset.

Rumors around the web are saying two models will release of the Cinelli 2011 Mash SF. When we asked Cinelli, they stated it is not set in stone yet.

Retail for the 2011 Mash SF Cinelli is between $975 – $1,000 for the frame, fork, and headset. …
