Niner Bikes Cogalicious RDO Ti Cog total kit weight 62 grams

This week, stock arrived for the all-new Niner Bikes’ Cogalicious RDO Ti Cog. Designed for top-end performance, the kit features a machined Ti cog, aluminum spacers and aluminum lock ring.

The cog is spec’d at 26 grams, but our sample weighed 28 grams; the complete kit weighs in at 62 grams. Niner provides enough spacers of various widths to let you fine-tune the cog position. Tooth position on the cog is thoughtfully designed, too — the teeth are offset just a hair to allow you to flip it and dial-in that fit just a little better. (more…)

Meet the 2013 Salsa Warbird Ti

A few weeks ago, we got a chance to visit with Justin and Eric from Salsa Cycles, along with a few samples of their 2013 product lineup. While Salsa’s 2013 specs have been available online for some weeks now, it was great to meet these bikes in person.

White Industires 11-speed hubs

New for 2013, White Industries has created the T11 hub. It’s a all new hub body design which looks a bit different from previous offerings, but it retains the same internals we’ve all come to love. The freehub body is titanium and compatible with the new 11-speed standard. Despite the freehub body being longer in length, they managed to keep the weight the same as previous models with a little extra machining. These hubs are backwards compatibable with 8/9/10 speed systems and will be offered in Shimano or Campy styles. Still made in the US, it’s clearly labeled with CNC machined labeling to show your national pride. They are set to come in the standard black and polished silver. (more…)
