Here are my thoughts on the new Commuter Workshirt and their Mobility Fleece.

Heavyset: Spring/Summer ’12

The homies at Heavyset have dropped their Spring/Summer ’12 video lookbook and collection. I have been waiting a minute to see what these guys have had up their sleeves. I know these dudes from other past brands, cycling and I’m stoked for their new line. The ski mask tees are dope, and those Crewnecks are killer (great price points). They also have a pretty fast Street Cycling team, so I would watch out for Team Heavyset in the near future.

Sick video lookbook! Congratulations on new line guys!

LDG: Compound Cog

Check out the new cog design our friends at LDG sent over. Their take on it is pretty cool and I would love to hear some opinions on it.

Introducing our new pinned construction cog, this design took months to develop the proper tolerances for achieving its unique mechanical construction.

We took a different approach to traditional cog design and started thinking out the box. The outer teeth are CNC’d from 7075-T6 heat-treated aluminum and mechanically fastened through six stainless steel, and two brass pins, to the body. The body is sculpted from a solid piece of stainless steel and precision crafted to house the outside teeth. The amount of precision it takes to pin the outer cog to the body meant that we had to machine all facets of the material to ensure the pins would properly seat. The outside cog was anodized black and then further machined for a two-tone look.

The first production run of 15T will be available soon, followed by a release of the 16T, 17T and 18T sizes shortly after. Pricing will be set at $59.99 each.
