Velocity, along with its founder Tom Black, is moving from Australia to Florida in 2012. This move makes history as Velocity becomes the only alloy rim built in the United States. In 2011, Velocity is still currently making its rims in Australia but it will stop its production in Brisbane before the year ends.

But starting in February, 2012, Velocity will make alloy rims in Jacksonville, Florida.

GT will offer an alloy version of its Fury Carbon downhill bike for 2012. With the aim to bring more people into gravity riding and racing, GT has created The Fury as a performance driven bike and that applies to both the carbon and alloy models.

The geometry and suspension design of the Fury carbon and alloy bikes are exactly the same. Starting the Ruckus 7 frame, the allow model adopts the carbon geometry and 210mm of suspension travel. The gussets of the proprietary 6000-series monocoque alloy front end are larger than that of a freeride bike.

Adjustable rebound is offered Marzocchi’s basic 888 and Rocco R fork and damper while braking is handled by Avid’s Elixir 3s with 200mm rotors. Aside from its alloy frame, new cold forged pivot block assembly, and lower price, the 2012 GT Fury Alloy is just a duplicate of the original carbon model.

Lezyne has released its new Alloy Drive CFH Pump for 2011. This is made for riders who are looking for the smartest solution to a flat tire. By using Flex Hose attachment, which the company has tried and tested, this pump is certainly reliable and innovative.

While CO2 canisters are ideal for saving time when deflation occurs during endurance mountain biking, be it a stage race, a whole day race, or a 24-hour marathon in the hills, carrying a pump is still necessary. However, carrying both can be a hassle during racing.

Thanks to the 2011 Lezyne Alloy Drive CFH Pump, racers do not have to carry both CO2 canisters and a pump. With its exacting standards, Lezyne designed its pump and the mount with a nicely machined aluminum barrel and handle making pumping tires as effortless as possible.
