A new kind of personal vehicle designed with the user’s experience in mind is a complete success. The Kickstarter campaign reached its funding goal in less than 24 hours with the help of over 250 backers. The team took the core driving mechanism of a classical bicycle (a wheel connected to a crankset) but redesigned pretty much everything else. The result - a vehicle that trains your balance and reflexes in a new way. Riding a Halfbike gives you a different perspective to the city. A kind of an urban teleport, if you like, that disconnects you for an instant from whatever is on your mind.

Fyxation has cooked up something very intersting - Six Fyx Conversion Kit. If you feel you need more gears to climb up that hill, or an extra gear or two to go really fast on flat, then this is for you. The set gives 6 gears to your existing fixed gear bike with a 120mm rear spacing. Just build up a rear wheel with the Fyxation hub in the kit, and install the rest of the set, then you're good to go.
Available now. Order a set with email@example.com.

Kappstein supplies cogs for Kristina Vogel who won the Sprint race in the World Championships in 2015. Kappstein's cogs are made of stainless steel and have always impressed me. They now also come up with stainless steel lock rings which are in Italian thread. If you have either a Campagnolo or Phil Wood track hub that you want to get a lock ring for, Kappstein is a bling new option.
