Recon Instruments are taking pre-orders for the new Recon Jet Glasses. These glasses provide data such as speed, cadence, heart rate, and elevation. The stats are shown through a display built into the lens. The glasses can connect to other devices via WiFi, ANT+, and Bluetooth. There is smart phone connectivity allowing call information to be seen as well. The Recon Jet glasses are upping the tech factor in the cycling world.

Brooks Cambium

The Brooks Cambium saddle is making its debut, and judging from the intense media coverage, it is sure to sell out quickly. I think it is a beautiful saddle, and would be happy to try one in the future. I’m hoping to have a look at Interbike this coming September.

Bar Fly 2.0

Bar Fly 2.0
Tate Labs recently released the updated Bar Fly 2.0. The new mount has been improved from the previous version with a couple of small changes. First, the position of the mount has been adjusted so the Garmin computer sits flush with the stem and handlebars. This is a small and welcome change that improves both the look and usefulness of the Bar Fly. There are now two mounting positions to adjust for the different computers from Garmin, allowing the user to have the computer sit close to the stem no matter the size. My favorite new feature is the positive engagement with a click. The previous version did not make a sound when the computer was installed, whereas version 2.0 makes a solid clicking sound, letting you know it is safely and securely installed. The changes are subtle, but the new Bar Fly 2.0 really improves on an already great product. And, best of all, the Bar Fly 2.0 is made in the USA, and comes with a lifetime warranty. The Bar Fly 2.0 is now available at Above Category Cycling, as well as other fine retailers.
