Martone Cycling Co. is debuting their V3 collection of bikes with 2 limited edition rides, the Broadway & Bergen. The Broadway is equipped with a 3-speed drivetrain, white to black color scheme with mismatched tires, silver saddle, and a double kickstand. It’s available in step-through and standard triangle options. The step-through comes with a front basket, 44cm frame and a price tag of $1,700. The standard frame option is available in sizes 52 and 56 and does not come with a basket. But they’re available for an additional $100. Otherwise, the standard frame is priced at $1,600.
The Bergen is just as eye-catching thanks to its gold, blue and maroon color pallet. It also features the double kickstand, 3-speed hub, and optional basket (that comes in gold). It’s available in 52 and 56cm frames and tagged at $1,600. Both bikes are accented with Martone Cycling’s red chain callsign.
Special mountain & road bundles
JET Roll has special edition versions of their mountain and road tool rolls.

The $50 roll comes with a white leather strap to secure it in place.
An easier way to bring a lock
Forget about bulky lock mounts and bags, the Foldylock Clipster from Seatylock is the first wearable bike lock. It’s a folding bar lock with 6 links measuring in at 33.5″ circumference. Or long enough to wrap around the frame, wheel, and pole. When traveling, it collapses down to a 28sq inch package. A robust clip holds the 2.2lb device onto belts, pockets, packs, and straps. The material of choice is hardened steel that’s covered in a military grade rubber to prevent paint damage. Foldylock Clipster is available on Kickstarter starting at the $65 pledge. Delivery is expected in August of 2018.
More good vibrations
Domio is back at it now with their latest device, the Domio Pro. Updated from their previous edition, the Pro now features a noise-canceling Air Mic that allows for hands-free voice control and input. It gets upgraded audio components for better sound and output compared to previous models. Just like the original, the Domio Pro is a wireless device that uses Vibro-Audio to pump soundwaves through the helmet. Because there are no obtrusive headphones or speakers, users are able to hear more of their surrounding for potential dangers. While at the same time enjoying their favorite audio media and now managing phone calls and more. The Domio Pro is available on Kickstarter starting at $140 for the Pro device and Air Mic with 2 mic clips. Units expected to ship in November 2018.
Redesigning the humble bag mount
Fixeur is a new way to carry your gear with you in a convenient pack. The system is barebones with just a bag and a fork mount. The fork mount itself weighs in at under 30g and attaches to the fork with 2 Dyneemafiber loops. Their bag attaches by hanging from its strap on the handlebar and stretching the integrated carbon fiber rod around the fork mount.
The bag is made of 100% vegetable tanned Italian leather and comes in 3 styles. First is the Kurt, it’s a messenger style bag that has 14L of storage which includes a 15″ laptop pocket and a key/phone pouch (both felt lined). The Eli is a tote bag that stores up to 16L. Its main compartment has a side felt-lined pocket for fragile gear. Ava is a shoulder bag that stores 15L and also has an interior felt-lined pocket for phone, keys or glasses. The kit is currently available on Kickstarter for those backing €130+.
