Legacy Frameworks

Designed, manufactured and assembled in Chicago, ready to ride Legacy Frameworks single speed models start at $1100, with an internally geared hub available for an additional $250. Frames are available in either a traditional diamond configuration or a step-through version in two sizes each, to fit most people between 5’4” and 6’2”. At less than $1500 complete for a USA made bicycle they fill a niche for people looking for locally made goods without the budget for a full custom build.

Tanaka QR Skewer Fender Mount

The Tanaka QR Skewer Fender Mount can add fender eyelets where there once were none at all and without using unsightly clamps. The mounts accept 5 mm fender stays and fit on any standard skewer and most fork dropouts for a clean attachment. Available for $12 per pair, buy two to outfit front and rear.

Campagnolo Toeclip Keychains

There seems to be no end of creative uses for repurposed bike parts, like these key chains made from vintage Campagnolo toe clips. Carefully cut and with a polished edge, they make a unique gift for that Campy nut we all know.

Ortre BI5 Lock

More secure than a cable but not as theft-resistant as a full size u-lock, the Ortre BI5 (back in five) is a $40 compact lock great for lower risk locking situations, or as a secondary lock for your front wheel. The lock is a svelte 511 g and slides into a bag or back pocket easier then even the smallest mini-u.

The Handleband

The $25 Handleband is a silicone band with an aluminum spine to securely hold your smartphone onto your stem or bars. As we rely on our phones more for navigation and competition beyond communication even bicycle luddites have found the need for a bar mount on occasion. The Handleband stretches to accommodate most phone and case combinations, and can also be used to hold a flashlight for bail out night ride lighting. They even put a bottle opener on it.


These battery-powered lock-on style grips bring turn signals to your handlebars. Compatible with most trigger shifters and brake levers, they retail for about $60 per pair.
