Sidewall Distribution has taken stock of these Snafu ‘Nicholson’ saddles to complement the increased business it is doing with fixed gear brand Focale 44.

Jeremie Infelise of Sidewall told BikeRumor: “The shape of the Nicholson saddle is pure ‘70s perfection. Think Brooks, Unicanitor and of course Sella Italia’s legendary Turbo. In 20 years we think our Nicholson saddle in lumberjack plaid, golden wallpaper and embossed filigree will be as highly praised as any of these great seats that came before it. Like the cherished Unicanitor seat on my old Windsor track bike, the Nicholson features an injection-molded nylon pan with 7mm solid chromoly rails. A thin layer of lightweight urethane foam and a screenprinted vinyl top provide comfort and style fans of old Turbo saddles can only dream of.”

Superstar's Neutral fork
Fixed gear product aside, Sidewall now has stock of Superstar’s 100 % heat treated Cr-Mo Neutral fork. The fork’s steerer tube carries a built in crown cone designed for use with integrated headsets. Triple butted and fluted legs give the fork an immense strength, though the weight is at the lower end of what’s on the market at just 1.9 lbs.

Having advanced its protection offering by introducing the Kraken helmet, alongside a few in-molded designs, TSG has come up with this solid shin guard. Available in either small/medium or large/extra large, the pads are designed with both comfort and knock resistance in mind. Where in contact with the rider, the pads are soft and flexible, though at vulnerable points such as the ankle, you’ll find tough cups covering any areas that could recieve an impact.
