MRC-Trading-suspension-tuning-service02

We’ve seen purple and green anodized forks from Marzocchi in the past, but now you can get your fork tuned for both performance and aesthetics by Fast Suspension.

Offering everything from replacement internals to full damping customization for a wide range of forks and shocks from Rockshox, Fox, Marzocchi, Headshok and more. The purple color is a new, ultra low friction coating…and it’s available black, gold, green and other custom colors, too. The pics tell the story below of the options, plus there’s suspension for kids and much more…

Make ’em bounce, indeed.

grind-suspension-forks-for-kids-bikes01

If the rider with grand aspirations are a little smaller, Spinner has a range of Grind suspension forks that look a little better than what comes stock on most youth bikes here in the States (I noticed more OE spec for these on European brands).

Options include steerer diameter, travel, brake type, lockout controls (really?) and air or coil suspension.

controltec-color-anodized-faceplates-lockrings01

Controltech has upped the color options, giving you anodized locking grips, stem faceplates and other bits and pieces across the bike in a few different hues.

reset-components-flat-pedal-and-dropouts01

Reset Racing still had their wild looking flat pedals on display.

Pedal3 is the latest version, using the pins as the bolts that hold it together. The open structure keeps them clean even on muddy days, and the pins are angled toward the center a bit on front and rear edges to provide extra bite. They retail for a budget busting €499 for standard models. Want titanium spindles? That’ll be €599.

Reset makes a wide range of shop quality tools already, and it looks like they may be expanding into dropouts for custom frame builders using the same German precision manufacturing. Note the direct brake mounts on the top left dropout…pretty slick.

use-components-lightweight-seatpost01

The new USE EVO-91 seatpost has a titanium shaft and is the lightest post they’ve ever made at just 154g. They based it on their alloy SP post, but machined away any excess material to make it lighter without sacrificing strength. Also available with a carbon shaft, shown in the background. Offered in 27.2 and 31.6 with 300mm and 400mm lengths.

zhongce-rubber-co-fat-bike-tires02

A lot of tradeshow space is dedicated to manufacturers showing off what they can make for others, and Zhongce Rubber is no different…except they were setup outdoor at the Eurobike demo day, too. The tires that caught our eye were the Big Daddy, available in two widths and a wide range of diameters.

The 4.9 is a massive tire and gets a more aggressive tread block height. Anyone else think they resemble the IRC Mythos? Note the options…you can get a fat bike tire from them for any wheel size from 20″ to 29er! Why 20″? Oh, you’ll see…

Great to see USE still around. I had a couple of their suspension posts. They were really awesome so long as you carried extra bolts.

One of the sliding dropouts from reset looks to have some pretty bad disc brake bolt clearance issues.

Fast suspension site doesn’t actually have any of the upgrade carts up except the Boxxer/40 one… so sad, wanted to see how much the lyrik one was.
