Mavic 125 Year Anniversary

KSYRIUM_125_AV_small
Mavic is celebrating their 125 year anniversary, and to mark the occasion, a limited edition series of products will be released starting at the end of May. The wheel you see above is part of the Ksyrium 125 Wheel-Tyre System. In addition to the wheel set, there will be a limited edition bib short and jersey. Mavic has a long history in cycling, and I am thrilled to see this release. Following is an excerpt from the press release.

This is a special year for Mavic, as it marks the 125th anniversary of the company’s founding as a bicycle parts business in Lyon in 1889. To mark the occasion in style, officials from the company and special guests created a special event in France. Few organizations in cycling can claim such a long and storied history as Mavic, so in addition to hosting a 2-day event tracing the company’s history at various locations in France, Mavic has released a suite of limited edition products to commemorate the historic milestone. The 125 anniversary products include a Ksyrium 125 Wheel-Tyre System and a matching HC 125 jersey and bib short.

Tanner Goods Cycling Collection

 

 

Tanner GoodsOver the weekend Tanner Goods announced the new cycling collection that’s now available through their website. It consists of three different pieces, a handlebar bag, a frame bag, and a saddle bag. All three are available in your choice of charcoal, burnt oak or field tan. I saw early prototypes on the Cielo Tanner Goods edition bicycle, and they were amazing. The design is quite functional and stylish to boot. The frame bag is my favorite, as it is an unusual piece, and looks to hold the right amount of a commuter’s daily needs. All three pieces combined would hold everything I need for a day’s adventures. I think the charcoal color would match my Bianchi Valle commuter perfectly.

Shelfie

Shelfie
Jürgen Beneke, the former 1993 Downhill World Champion has launched a Kickstarter Campaign for the Shelfie. It is a home storage solution for any type of bicycle. The system relies on the saddle for hanging the bike, making it possible to hang any style of bike effortlessly. The Kickstarter has already funded, but there are a few days left to get in on the deal. I like the design, and would love to have this in my home.

The patent-pending Shelfie uses a bike’s seat to hang a bike on any wall, and features two integrated shelves for organizing and storing cycling gear. It is constructed of a durable, injection-molded tinted polyethylene plastic, includes wall-anchors and will hold up to 50 lbs. Final production models will be made entirely in the U.S.A. and will include two vinyl protectors. Shelfies are currently available through Kickstarter for $95, and the MSRP for production versions is projected to be $130.
