new bike bling

sorry, my cell phone doesn't have macro

it's the hollowtech II cap that isn't necessary but is WAY nicer than the plastic ones included from SHIMANO.

Nice! Glad to see you nailed down what you were after. Did you get to exchange e-mails directly with Rob? He's a great guy and creates some really quality products.

No, that would have been cool. I more or less just went straight through the site, arrived quick. Had to sign for it.

Yeah, I think he's gotten a bit more high-tech as his product line and sales volume has increased over the years.

Sorry I missed the original post regarding these.

How much were they? Did you buy the tool as well?

That's cool. Try to get a matching lockring for your cassette.

And post up a link to the site you got it from.

they are available from BETD, BETD Bicycle Components

and actually click on this one and scroll down a little bit

They ran me 9 british pounds plus 8 british pounds for shipping to the states. So it came out to thirty something dollars.

I originally ordered green to match my grips and CK headset I just got, but they were out so I had to get pewter

Then you're in luck. Chris King makes a lockring in Al that looks pewter.


On a separate note, I noticed this thing and am intrigued by it. Coincidentally a guy from my club just posted up pictures of his. This replaces the star nut method.

That headset compression thing intrigued me as well. Seems like a good idea

I found out who makes the compression bolt thing above. The item in the pic above is a Woodman Capsule Extrem. I think I saw them on BeyondBikes for about $20 or $30.
