2012 GEAR GUIDE: AMERICAN-MADE VELOCITY RIMS 

Velocity announced this week that they will be moving production from Australia to the good ol’ U.S. of A.  This is pretty big news considering that (as of February 2012) Velocity rims will be the ONLY aluminum rims made in America.  I’m stoked to get a pair of U.S.-made A23's!

From Velocity’s press release:

« Tom Black, the founder of Velocity, will be relocating from Australia to Florida where he will continue to oversee rim production at Velocity’s new manufacturing factory. Velocity’s distribution center will continue to operate out of Grand Rapids, Michigan as it has since 1992 and become their worldwide headquarters; with the Australian facility remaining as a distribution center for the Asian and Australian markets. »

2012 GEAR GUIDE: AFFINITY CRANKSET 

The end of the year is the best time for bike upgrades!  For the next few weeks, I’ll feature some of the new products coming out that’ll help you fly around the banks next season.

Affinity Cycles just announced their new fully CNC-machined track cranks and chainrings.  These pretty little things come polished in silver or black and pay homage to classic pista cranksets.  The best part is somehow they managed to make this crankset completely affordable at $175 for the cranks, chainring and a Truvativ bottom bracket!

Order yours now from the Affinity store and check out more details HERE.

SUMMER RACE SERIES - CHROME BAGS PRIZE


Well the thieves did not steal everything — I was able to hide away a big prize for the Summer Race Series. Thanks to Chrome Bags, I’m pleased to offer up a brand new Sherman backpack to the winner of the Sprint Tournament this Wednesday at the Golden Saddle Grand Prix.

This backpack is designed to carry your entire race kit including a set of wheels (you can pretty much fit anything in on or around it). I love it and use it all the time — check out my review from earlier this year.

Don’t miss your chance to win it on August 10th at the Golden Saddle G.P.

MANCHESTER WORLD CUP MUSETTES 

I don’t know what I’d do with a musette bag but Il Soigneur has made some brilliant bags out of recycled vinyl banners from the previous Manchester World Cup.  Check them out on Urban Hunter.

Found on Tracko.
