Fiveten and Adidas Reinvent the Flat Pedal Shoe - The Trailcross - Aug. 26, 2019, 4:16 a.m.

Yeah, I want to like the taking of chances, but these look too much like some $20,000 monstrosities Kanye would wear. We're talking weapons-grade ugly. Maybe the tech will be restyled in the 2nd gen...

We Are One Composites - 6 New Rims plus Bar and Stem - April 19, 2019, 9:56 a.m.

I just realize why the mushroom like profile of the bead cross section looks familiar: Its similar to a Chromag aluminum rim, although its missing the internal hook. Still, interesting that these two companies with somewhat similar riding outlooks arrive at similar shapes. I've yet to get a chance to try either, but I'm curious as to whether those softened profiles can prevent flats when I ride.

The All New Nicolai/GeoMetron G1 - Jan. 10, 2019, 1:09 p.m.

Would love to get a leg over this thing, and I love the industrial early 2000s aesthetic. It seems like the (perceived?) resurgence in aluminum is driven by companies like Geometron, who are using the lower setup/production costs to take bigger chances on bike design. Even if I don't get to ride one, this still helps all of our bikes get better. Nice work.
