After extensive testing, the Gravel Tech "FAT Rack" is in full production. The FAT Rack has quite a few unique features, such as it's universal mounting rings on the front of the rack. Our engineering team created this clever feature to increase load yaw and create audible load recognition (so you always know it's there).
Tad the Champ, of Portland, has taken his long messengering experience and is now putting it into cargo racks. He calls them TCB Racks.
I really enjoy looking through manufacturer's catalogs, there's always that page with a picture of some product surrounded by contrived blueprints and notes, with some sort of precision measuring apparatus, machined metal shavings, and a random tool or two. This is how an art director envisions how consumers envision how bike parts are made. It's especially funny when said part is made of carbon fiber
Taking a break from turning low end 70's Peugeots into fixies with quick releases and selling them on craigslist, we focused on making sense of these strange Japanese liquid vectoring devices for bicycle wheels. Apparently they're called "fenders" in Japanese, and these are made by Honjo. Don't know what all the fuss was about, they practically installed themselves.
I love that we haven't done a thing and the NOISE just keeps rolling along:
