Keeping the names both fun and relevant, Granite Design showed off two new bits to help keep your bike bike rolling in the event it needs repair. The Rock ‘n’ Roll tool roll comes in a few colors and builds in a complete allen bit set with a ratcheting wrench. There’s also an extension bit to help you reach tight spots, which is a great addition many such kits lack.

Available in Black and Camo, the toll roll has a grippy patch on the backside to keep it from slipping when strapped to your bike with one of their accessory straps. Those come in a wide variety of colors and also feature a grippy section and a velcro loop for securing an inner tube. The Rock ‘n’ Roll kit comes in at $32.99 with all parts and has an empty slot to store chain quick links (not included).

funn components UpDown 200mm and 225mm dropper seat posts

Sharing their booth was Funn Components, which has added stealth versions of their 125mm and 150mm UpDown dropper posts, as well as a 175mm travel post. What really stood out (up?) were prototypes of their extra long 200mm and 225mm dropper posts. Why so long? Because there are some really tall people out there with really big frames that still wanna get down. All posts use their automatically calibrating RCR cartridge to ensure smooth performance no matter how many times you cycle it, and will come with their multi-direction remote lever. Check both of those out in this post.

  1. Best thing about longer dropper posts, I can have an XL frame made with a 18in seat tube made and go from slammed to pedalling height at the push of a lever. Pump heaven.

  2. What about for people with short legs and arms who want the low setting to be that much lower?
    This is finally getting to the point where I’d be interested. At current drops I’d just as soon leave the seat wherever it is.
