The rotational part engages with the pedal to create a solid intece that rotates around the fixed part of the cleat. This means that wear happens in the cleats, rather than the more expensive pedals. Also, as with Speedplay’s Zero road pedals, when you walk on Syzr cleats, the moving parts that actually engage with the cleat never come into replica Tag Heuer watches contact with the ground, which further enhances durability. The pedals also have the adjustable float that Speedplay is known for.I didn’t get a chance to test the Syzr pedals but will do so as soon as possible. They are scheduled to hit stores this fall and will be available in a lightweight (and likely expensive) titanium version. WTBBest known for tires and saddles, this company from California’s Bay Area also has a fairly wide range of mountain-bike rims and wheelsets.
They used Press Camp to roll out a new line of tubeless-ready wheels and tires, meant to work together in what they’re calling TCS (tubeless-compatible system). TCS uses a replica TAG Heuer Monza watches standard UST tire bead mated with a UST lip on the rim for a solid, airtight intece. The rims require rim tape for a tubeless setup. Not exactly an innovative system, though WTB is one of very few companies offering both tires and wheels, which they claim allows them to engineer better connections between tire and rim.
One nifty idea WTB has incorporated is to print rim and tire standards on the rim. Each TCS rim clearly shows the rim width and the replica Tag Heuer watches recommended tire sizes and widths. On tubeless systems, especially, where poor tire fit can result in sudden and dangerous air loss, this will help customers avoid unsafe tire choices.WTB will offer TCS setups for cross-country, all-mountain, and downhill applications. I spent about an hour of technical, rocky singletrack riding on the Stryker cross-country setup. The Wolverine tires hooked up very well in the dirt, and even at 28psi and through rocky turns, they didn’t burp air.The TCS wheels should be in stores by September.—John BradleyTwitter: johnwbradley
