Sitting atop the upcoming Milenium stem is Sixpack Racing’s new GoPro headset cap mount. A large hole in the center accesses the top cap bolt to pull the steering assembly snug, and the slotted camera mounts protrude. Assuming you get it on straight to begin with, it should be one of the safer, more solid mounts on the market since it’s not relying on friction between parts.

Drop in for more on that stem and other new parts…

Their lock-on grips gain glow-in-the-dark options and some day-glow colors.

Until now, their minimalist (but not most minimalist) Millenium pedal came in two lightweight and expensive versions, one with a titanium spindle, the other with steel, and both with magnesium bodies. Weights are 278g and 320g per pair respectively. But, to bring the design to the masses, they’ve added an 6061 alloy body version, too:

And it comes in a much wider array of colors. Retail is €149.50, still not cheap, but much lower than the other two. Weight is 358g per pair, and it comes in 12 colors. Inside are six sealed bearings and two DU bushings, which should make them plenty durable. The CNC’d body is concave and has 14 pins per pedal (7 per side).

The Millenium carbon handlebar now comes in both 31.8 and 35 mm clamp sections, with weights at 285g. They have no rider weight limit and come with a 5-year crash replacement offer.

Width is a healthy 845mm with cut marks all the way down to 805mm for the daring.

The new Skywalker stem comes in as their new lightweight enduro/all-mountain offering. The shorty is just 35mm and comes in at a claimed 110g. Look for it in purple, blue, red, black and neon green ano when it starts shipping. It’ll also be available in 50 and 70 mm lengths.

    Do trees not exist in the lands where these bars are made??? Anything wider than 700mm is an issue in lower Michigan. Can’t imagine trying to fit these bars down any trails around here.

    “Assuming you get it on straight to begin with, it should be one of the safer, more solid mounts on the market since it’s not relying on friction between parts.”

    I don’t understand this. Unless the cap is somehow indexed, it relies on friction to keep it straight. The vertical adjustment also relies on friction to keep it in place. It relies on the friction from the headset plug or star nut to keep it in place.

    The only thing it doesn’t do is rely on a clamp, but there’s absolutely no reason why a properly engineered clamp should slip. Stems clamp onto the handlebars and steerer and with high loads and we expect those not to slip except in the most extreme situations that would probably snap anything that couldn’t slip.
