VP Grind Pedals
Inexpensive, nylon bodied platform pedals have their place. For abusive riders they tend to be durable and easily replaceable. Easy on shoes and shins, they’re favored by some BMX and polo players to ease the pain of a slipped pedal. The roughly $20 VP Grind pedals have a slim body compatible with wide over the foot straps, and have reflectors tucked into the sides where you might actually leave them. Available in a variety of colors at your local shop.
Brooks C17 Cambium
Brooks is known for their leather saddles, but this summer they’re releasing the Cambium C17 saddle, the first non-leather saddle from Brooks in a very long time. It’s made from flexible natural rubber with an organic cotton top, with the nameplate and rivets you’d expect from Brooks.
The Fyxation Eastside is now available as a complete bike for $595. Features include a full 4130 chromoly frameset with real world 46 x 17 fixed gearing, 28 mm tires, fender eyelets and Fyxation parts throughout. Available in 49, 52, 55 and 58 cm in matte black, silver or copper.
