Cool, are there any pics floating around? What I find interesting about these ones is they thread through the pedals like double straps, but have a power strap "sleeve type thing" which can be adjusted, seems like a really good idea.

Had a look at these tonight with Jol, and very impressed, finally a worthy powerstrap alternative to double straps and clips, that looks like it should last! I should be testing a set sometime soon so I will keep y'all updated and get some pics info up as soon as Jol says its cool to do so.

Only one set in existence at the moment, gotta speak to Jol about whether he is happy for me to use those or not yet as they are pristine and good for showing people the product I guess! I'll chat to him soon.

Hey guys.

Just made a new prototype due to a few comments from James.
James you are welcome to try the old version but it might be worth waiting as the new ones are MUCH better. I'm going to go down the sew-myslef route so they will be ready as soon as I can get my hands on an industrial sewing machine on t'bay.

Next week probably.

Thanks for the interest.

Oops, just saw them 70psi max?! No good for big drops, probably gonna stick with randonneurs, which I love btw, best tyre I have ever ridden, gonna go 35 up back and 42 up front now.

the psi rating will be identical to rando as essentially same tyre but more rubber. rando hold higher pressure no problems.

Ah ok, I coulda sworn my randos are rated at about 15psi more though? mine run 100psi no problems atm, but my rear is fucked so getting swapped out for a 35c, more cushion for pushin ;)

Gee sorry for being 5psi off the right figure lol?! I'm not sure which I like better, those or the randos......I really like my Rando's and don't wanna risk changing for something that I might not like as much.

The Identiti Rebate Park Forks are 90

So if that the right price on the 14 ones, it is quite a substantial saving..

(apparently they are 99% ident to MKE?)
the 54 has a 54.5 sloping TT, 59 cm Effective), 50cm ST
the 52 has 52 sloping, 56 effective, 46cm ST..
what the fuck?
how do you size those for normal people?
I'm not too clued up on Compact Geo.

same as... ? I'm going to switch to 42-17 at some point though, want something just moderately less spinny, I figure that'll be the perfect ratio for me. Although having quite a spinny gear has really helped me improve my crank timing for tricks because you have to be much quicker!
