Küat Rüfee

Küat has gained a lot of momentum over the last two years with their widely popular NV rack. In fact, in 2011 it was given a “Gear of the Year” award from Men’s Journal. Next up is the Rüfee. Right out of the box, this rack can do just about all of it. It’s adaptable for 9, 15 or 20mm forks, features special security bolts to keep it on your car, disc compatible and has a built in lock. Oh, and they are currently working with Salsa Cycles to carry fat bikes. I don’t think you could ask for anything else from a roof rack. (more…)

A Handle Bar Mounted Touring DryBag! The thing we like about Topeak is that every year when we walk into their booth we find ourselves saying “Wow” more times than any other booth. Topeak has gone the extra mile year after year and they are not one for letting up! This year we saw everything from a new 29er rear rack to a bar mounted touring dry bag to great new tools and pumps. Some of which has been around and we have missed the write up previously and some is brand spanking new. Topeak does what more bicycle companies should take note of, they make it so you can USE your bike and on top of that they get you excited to do that.
