khs flite 100   KHS Flite 100 2010 Fixed Gear

For the past few years, the US MTB brand KHS have been wandering and observing the industry trying to see what they could do to have a bike that’s better than the rest. And you know, their patience really paid off.

Introducing to the market, the KHS Flite 100 2010 Fixed Gear, a bike that’s so normal only a bit better than the ordinary at a not so pricey tag. The KHS Flite 100 is the newest invention with a Reynolds 520 double butted Chromoly frame, Wienmann Rims, a flip flop hub and stylish rack bars; this is one bike that can surely get attention.

This ordinary looking bike can surprise its user since it has a surprisingly low weight. Casting off the fixed set up and rear brake, this bike can weigh at 20lbs overall together with its pedals. Combining everything else with a 44/17 crank set, this bike…

Marin Black and White Hardtails 2010

marin black white hardtail 2010   Marin Black and White Hardtails 2010

A new range of hardtails were released by Marin, specially targeted for the UK. The hardtails were made to give powerful performance at a reasonable price.

The new range was the Black and White Line which sports a hydroformed aluminium frame. The frame is almost identical with the Hydro-Lite series. The only difference would be that the Black and White Line gives you great value for your money.

Marin’s eye for detail resulted in a triple butted frame which all models share. The Black and White Line are polished with Shimano Deore groupsets. The forks are Rock Shox Tora SL. If you want to try the Pro version, you will shell out a bit more than the entry level model which costs £899. The Pro version offers a Rock Shox SID/Hope/Mavic/XT or Fox 32 F100 RL/Mavic Cross Ride/XT/XTR specifications.

Marin has six models that you can choose from in the line….

Soul Cycles have now added a new product for their 29”er hard tail. Joining the Dillinger is the “Vegas” full suspension bike.

The new frame is currently being manufactured by Soul Cycles to be ready for its launch by early summer. The design is a single pivot type which highlights a low leverage ratio travel of 5.5 inches. It will also be compatible Hammerschmidt. There is a front derailleur routing that allows you to use either 10mm or 12mm rear axle.

To maximize rear lateral stiffness, the iGlide based scissor link is in place. An Easton FS RAD tubeset will be fabricated with it. The scissors linkage functions to keep the swing arm laterally stable. The pivots will move on Igus “iGlide” bushings.

Versions available will be 26 inches and 29 inches. Soul Cycles will be bundling the frame with a Fox Shox RP-23 rear damper. The estimated retail price for…

Xtracycle Radish 2010 Longtail Bike

Xtracycle now opens preorders for their newly redesigned longtail bike Radish. The deliveries will begin on May 2010. Grant Petersen of Rivendell Bikes was the one who created the improved design on the cargo bike’s loaded and unloaded handling.

Radish gets a makeover in terms of frame geometry, brake and drivetrain components. The downtube was lowered to allow easier mounting by short people. For tall riders, the effective top tube length was maximized making the distance from the seatpost and the headset wider.

Another feature that makes the Radish a must-have for longtail cyclists would be its 4130 chromoly steel which is stronger than the hi-ten steel. It is of superior quality when it comes to strength, durability, and longevity. Chromoly is commonly known as “aircraft tubing”. It is much lighter than the High Tensile Steel.

Xtracycle limits its release of the Radish to fifty bikes. This is to emphasize their…
