Do you remember this post about toe clip straps? Well they have just arrived, along with several other new VO components.
The VO straps are available in black and in brown. They are a full 445mm long for large American feet, or about 35mm longer than most European straps. The buckles are stainless steel. They include buckle pads to prevent scratches on your shoes. Figs not included.
We also have some new track pedals. These are made for us by Wellgo, the large Taiwanese pedal manufacturer. There are some versions of this pedal already available and we really liked the look and quality of it, especially of the Japanese market version. So we asked Wellgo to try to make a version that was as nice as the top-of-the-line Campy and MKS pedals. The VO/Wellgo pedal has high quality sealed bearings, is hand polished, and has lovely satin finished cages.
I'll be writing about the newly arrived VO seat posts, VO stems, VO stem adapter and VO universal cartridge bearing jockey wheels soon.
And we have Grenluille brakes again, but now they include cartridge-style brake shoes.
