These superbly anodised hubs and skewers are made by Spin Cycle Works. The quick release skewers really got our attention called the ‘QuickLight Seriously Trick Release‘ they weight 44 grams, have Titanium 6Al4V Ti solid axles and come in loads of colours. Needless to say we spent a while just kind of looking at them and wanting some. Good news is that they are a decent price at £39.99. If you’re in need of some upgrade bling it’s worth taking a look.

That there is the UNOBTAINIUM MONOBLOC CASSETTE for Campagnolo 11 speed. 114g(!) for 12-27T and it’s titanium nitride coated. Made from a billet of alumiium really, not actually unobtainium. Available from £199.99.

The hubs are reasonably priced too, the gold SPIN FAST R50 pictured is £89.99 and has 48 pick up points and weigh 225 grams.

Spin do a massive range of desirable components, we’d love to know if they perform as good as they look. If your running any of their kit on your bike let us know.
