A few new goodies to check out, mostly in anodized red - the colour of the season?

I really like the look of those Funn components, particularily the Funnduro stem. Nice prices too for such a good looking, lightweight component.

An extra 130 bucks for the bike stand in Canada. Import duties here are a joke.

That number comes from the distributor based on an aggressive markup. Most dealers would sell that product for substantially less here in Canada. Since I posted the SRP in the US it made sense to post the SRP in Canada as well. Some online searching will reveal some better prices.

I didn't know fun sponsored so many teams, the components look great though. I quite like the looks and price of the stem.
I am surprised Funn makes a 32" bar. Does anyone on this forum run a bar that wide?

I also like that you guys worked something red into every picture.

If you're going without a bash guard, the MRP is a lot lighter and a lot cheaper than the 77 designs guide. Neither are really directly comparable to something like a LG1+ though. I can see from the gouges on my bashes that going bashless wouldn't work for me.

I thought I'd just add a note about feedback's customer service. I have an old "Ultimate" bike stand that had broken parts. I eventually found out that Feedback had bought Ultimate, and so I emailed them about replacement parts. Not only are they stocking replacement parts for Ultimate racks, they are also honouring warranty's and offering discounted rates to retrofit and upgrade Ultimate racks to the new (higher) quality of Feedback's designs. They were willing to work with me on shipping options, and helpful in helping me figure out how to do the retrofit. I was pleasantly surprised. they're good people.
