Alright so grab your hacksaw. Kidding...
Dan asked us if the Gran Compe Barrel Adjusters fit our City Levers by replacing the cable stop that comes with the lever set. We tried it out wouldn't you know, they fit. The adjusters also fit the Dia-Compe Guidonnet Levers. You get an easy, convenient way to adjust brake cable tension on the fly.
In response to an earlier post with regards to Info Overload, Don sent us a picture of his decaleur turned info center complete with temperature and time.
Do you have any products that have more than one intended use?
A few submitted hacks in comments:
- ColonelJLloyd - Quill mounted cable hanger
- Eric - Handlebar water bottle mount
- Somervillain - Custom build 'Baskaleur'

I took the opportunity this past weekend to head out and do some more testing of the pass hunter prototype. I knew of some gravel roads that circumnavigated Sugar Loaf mountain west of Gaithersburg MD, that would make a great testing ground.
By the way, we have a Polyvalent on special here-
Update- The Polyvalent has been sold

We just got a shipment of our new Saddle Loops and they are now in stock at long last. Scott is jumping up and down for joy.

A guest post by Casey:
"It never got weird enough for me" ~ Hunter S. Thompson
About a month and a half ago I wrote a post about my current cockpit setup on my touring rig. I mentioned that my ideal setup would have the swept back hand position of funky mountain bars along with the flats and hoods hand positions of drop bars. I also alluded to the fact that I was getting a prototype of a bar that would provide all of those hand positions. Well it's here, and I'm pretty sure the whole office has become concerned for my sanity.
old condorino bars and more modern bullhorns in too rapid of succession.
|The swept back portion of the new bars will provide a similar hand position to the VO Postinos|

Once every few weeks our agent in Taiwan packs up samples and prototypes from various factories and sends them to us. Sometimes it's just odd bits, new hardware for fenders, a new color of cable housing, etc. But this time we got some really interesting stuff.
