Fresh Out The Box: Parts – Issue 160

Every month we take look at some fresh new product and tell you guys what we think about it. Here’s the parts section from issue 160.

Hard Rock Bar

The Hard Rock Bars from Stereo look literally ready to be installed onto your bike with no cutting down and no fuss. These come in at 8.7″ high, 29″ wide with 3 degree back sweep and 3 degree up sweep. Stereo keep it nice and simple with a choice of either Black or Chrome! Craftsmanship is always first on the agenda over at Stereo and we’ve never been let down yet, and these are a good example of that. RRP £59.99

Ecliptic Sprocket 28t

New from Vocal is this very respectable sprocket and at a very respectable price indeed! Great value here from these guys. CNC machined from 6061 aluminium, weighs in at 80 grams and is 6 mm thick. This thing is a solid piece of kit and is available in a wealth of colours and also with the relevant shims to fit most cranks. Polished off with good attention to detail and smooth graphics. RRP £36.99

Dos seat

Here’s Fly’s own unique take on the seating system. The Dos seat features their own Tripod system. Essentially, you can adjust the seat into the two most popular positions as used by most riders! The angle is changed with the position of wedge (on top or bottom of the post bolt hole). This is a strong three-point structure. The Dos is available in a range of colours and coverings. Our’s came through with this luxury Tan colour and everyone has fallen in love with it. RRP £TBC

Mac 2 tyre

The ever popular KHE Mac 2 tyre is now available in Tan wall. These have been around for a while now in your regular Black wall, but KHE have seen it fit to keep up with the Jones’s and release their own Tan version. As before with the Mac 2 you’ve got the proven integrated puncture proof side walls. Excellent grip for park/street use and available in both kevlar and steel bead. RRP £32.99

Dinero fork

United have spent some serious time working on these things, and they wanted everything to be perfect before they hit the shelves. These are the Dinero forks, and one feature you’ll notice right away are the investment casted dropouts. The dropouts have been moved into the centre of the legs, which is only possible with investment casting, and not only does this look clean and tidy it provides a much stronger dropout and fork leg unit. The legs have also been curved at the bottom, this helps with any front peg snaggage! Full post weld heat treated 4130 chromo, with a tidy little embossed logo, and weighing in at 2.02lbs. RRP £119.99

A Bike Co
Akimbo cranks

ANML’s luxury cranks are so slick. The Akimbo cranks are designed to take a serious beating, it’s as simple as that. They are strong, but not over built. The arms are 175 mm long heat treated 4130 chromoly. The axle is 22 mm, 48 splined and hollow. There are bolts for regular drive and micro drive. These cranks literally come as a kit and have everything you need for installation and removal (and they also come in a sweet box with foam centre). Very nice. RRP £179.99

Indian Grippers

These are Randy Taylor’s signature grips from Mutiny. Awesome design constructed from super soft krypton rubber, we noticed these felt particularly soft! But will no doubt last the same amount of time as most grips on the market. They come with the mandatory nylon end plug and are available in Black, Grey and Khaki. RRP £9.99

Motion rim

Federal have stepped into the rim market and rightly so as this looks top drawer. The Motion rim is 6061-T6 aluminium with double wall construction and welded seam. This has literally been designed from the ground up by Federal. It’s not a re-branded, it’s unique. It weighs in at 17.6oz and looks robust enough to handle street and slick enough for dirt or ramps. It’s a top quality all round rim which comes in ed black, chrome or polished. RRP £59.99 Black, £63.99 Chrome

Ashley Charles bars

Here’s the chrome versions of the amazing Ashley Charles
signature bars from Eclat. Ashley has been killing it for centuries, and at the tender age of 12 he was gracing the back pages of this magazine for companies like Dirt Master. These pups are made from fully liquid post heat treated seamless 4130 crmo. They are 8.3” high, 28” wide, with a 10 back and 1.5 degree upsweep. There’s a whole host of colours available too, but Chrome has to be the daddy. They weigh in at 1.51lbs. RRP £64.99

Slash plastic pedals

Nice and simple plastic pedals from Eclat. The Slash are super slim and really grippy. They have a knurled surface for that bit of extra purchase and have a decent sized pin too, which will make them last longer. They are constructed from injection molded nylon and fiberglass, crmo spindle and quick loose ball bearings, greased and ready to ride. Eclat come through again with sick quality produce. RRP £14.99

Ethereal sprocket

More great sprocket work from one of the best brands around. The Ethereal from Mutiny looks bang tidy, and well made as you’d expect. 7075 CNC machined aluminium alloy with a 15/16” bore with adaptor for 19 mm axles. These come in 23, 24, 25, 27, 28, 30 and 33 tooth so size wise you’re covered. Weighs in at 2.8 ozs and available in this Polished Silver, Gold and Black. RRP: £44.99
