New & Interesting Bike Components

What shop isn’t stocking these? How do they work on bikes make in the last 10 years?

But also, brass ferrules X compressionless housing is 100% doing it wrong. 5mm alloy brake ferrules only.

I’ve seen compressionless start to blast though brass ferrules more than a few times. I get the bulk jag ferrules. Not cheap. But reusable.

but what if you could buy them in small lots from a small retailer that can’t do bulk pricing and also charges shockingly high shipping and handling?

As long as you throw some random assorted candies/stickers in with each order it’ll all be cool.

not new but polyvalents are back in stock. @Emor_please you were planning on sizing down right?

A step thru Poly and a clyde fork would probably be a pretty nice combo.
