Back in Stock: Tires and Cable HangersJan Heine
It’s no secret: Keeping things in stock has been a bit of a challenge lately. Production delays due to Covid restrictions, shipping bottlenecks and other factors have made it difficult to get components from our suppliers. As a small company working with high-end manufacturers, we’ve been less affected than most, but some items have been out of stock lately.
So we were especially happy to receive a big shipment with tires and other products. These include our immensely popular 26″ x 2.3″ knobbies, the Humptulips Ridge, as well as staples like the 700C x 44 Snoqualmie Pass. A few tire models are still out of stock – we should receive most of them in 7-10 days.
We also received more cable hangers. The first shipment sold out in less than 24 hours – who would have thought there was such a need for better cable hangers? Or perhaps we should have known, as the cable hanger can be the weak link that makes your bike’s brakes perform sub-optimally.
We also received more straddle cables for our cantilever brakes. In addition to the short (245 mm), standard (264 mm) and long (286 mm), we now offer an extra-long version that’s 305 mm long. That means you can use our cantilever brakes even on bikes that have big tires, fenders and racks that get in the way of the straddle cables.
Over the next month or so, the supply situation should improve further. Almost everything that’s out of stock is on order and in production now. Until then, we appreciate your patience. And there are even some exciting new products in the pipeline. We can’t tell you much about them yet, but the latest shipment also included some prototype parts…
