The future of high end frames and drivetrain component designs are being ushered in by FSA with the help of the new FSA 386 Evo bottom brackets.

What’s great about the new BB 386 EVO system is that it works well with the majority of the current bottom bracket standards, including the standard 68mm wide BBs for road bikes as well as a BB30 or a PF30 bottom bracket or even as a Bright system or a BB86.

As for the 386 EVo, this system is press fit and will sport an 86.5mm bottom bracket shell width, making the frame’s width wider and makes the axle as long as the external system with a total diameter of 30mm, similar to that of the BB30 system.

2011 Agu Secco Condom Jacket

Weighing in at only 172g, the 2011 Agu Secco Condom Jacket is a feather light cycling garment for rainy rides. Along with the polyamide or nylon fabric is a microporous Poray 5000 coating, which means the jacket has very small pores so even small droplets cannot pass through.

On the other hand, the pores of the fabric are large enough to let water vapor escape. It does not have any adjustment around the elasticated hem or cuffs, which means air conditioning depends only on the front zip. Visibility is enhanced by extra reflecting prints.

Mid-level waterproof, the 2011 Agu Secco Condom Jacket is highly packable and is tailored with a slim and very cycle-specific cut. While it is not the best garment to wear for winter commuting, this jacket is nice for spring and summer showers.
