More Noir

by Igor

I've been super happy with the progress of our Noir line. If you're keeping score, so far we have an 1 1/8" Sealed Bearing Headset, ChroMo Crazy Bars, ChroMo Seine Bars, Zeste Cantilever Brakes, Long Reach Caliper Brakes, and 0 Setback Seatpost. So today we're introducing a couple new items.

Here's the VO Tall Stack Stem, Noir. Same dimensions and specs as the silver version

We'd also like to introduce Casey's Crazy Bars in Noir. Same dimensions and specs as the original alloy Crazy Bar.

What should be next in the Noir lineup? Drillium? Hubs?

Lastly, we just received a shipment of more Grand Cru Fender Mounted Reflectors. The last shipment sold out very quickly.

Using the Six-Pack rack

By Clint

We've had some questions about how to secure your goods.  All you need is a bungee chord and the bag your beverages came with.  Here are a few photos.

Secured and ready to ride
12 oz cans have a lower center of gravity and they're already strapped together.  Not a huge chance of these things falling out, but we still recommend tying them down.

Low gravity beverages
Our friend Eric loaded up his bike with some pear cider, Chilean wine, and Mexican tequila. He's living on the edge securing his six-pack with only a bungee chord; a little risky in our eyes, but it's a darn good looking build.

We've also been asked what camera bag fits the rack. Igor's been using this Lowepro Rezo 170 AW for a while (which fits perfectly into the Grand Cru Handlebar Bag by the way) because it's simple, lightweight, and comes with a water resistant cover which is tucked into a secret compartment. It's almost like it was destiny.
Remember, there's no use in crying over spilled milk; however, it's perfectly normal to shed tears over broken bottles.
