Pr Wtf

April 1, 2014 — The latest from Mill Valley, Calfiornia is that Wilderness Trail Bikes and its urban counterpart, Freedom have joined together to be rebranded as Wilderness Trail & Freedom, or WTF.

“We’ve asked for WTF for quite some time now,” elaborated Justin Kirkwood, WTF’s creative director. “The ThickSlick tire’s overwhelming success is irrefutable. Now under one roof, WTF will offer a staggering portfolio. From 16 versions of the WTF ThickSlick to 11 different WTF Vigilantes spanning 26, 27.5, and 29”, WTF has augmented its reach. The future is bright for WTF.”

What the freedom? For the official word from WTF, follow the jump. (We’re just glad people still have the energy to create this stuff. April 1st used to be our favorite day in publishing. . . ) [click to continue…]


Pure Fix Goes Spokeless With Nikola

by editors on April 1, 2014

Spokes are for suckers! They add weight, increase drag, and transmit harsh road bumps up to the rider, but for years they’ve been the only way to keep your hubs attached to your wheels. Until now.

Thanks to dynamo-hub powered electromagnets, neodymium rim inserts, and some engineering magic, the Nikola makes spokes a thing of the past. At low speeds, the magnetic field generated keeps the rims stable and allows some wiggle-room to absorb road shock (imagine invisible magnetic shocks and you’ll get a sense of how cool it is), at higher speeds the stronger field keeps your rims stiff so you don’t lose any energy to flexing like on a standard spoked wheel. This is basically the coolest thing you’re going to see all year. 1 part mag-lev train, 1 part urban-assault bicycle, 100% Pure.

We think April 1 is our favorite day of the year.

Here’s a new fixie from the crew at Pure Fix. It’s called The Coolidge.

The Coolidge features a 4130 chromoly frame which makes for a ride that is light and highly durable while the 700x25c Thickslick tires allow riders to satisfy their need for speed as safely and comfortably as possible.
