One happy customer!

I received the new pulleys and installed them early this week. They areflawless. The spacing is perfect for SRAM - I have theForce derailleur. They are as quiet as the stock ones (and less noisy then the older version - which I had). These are a super addition.

Your BB is the best, and the wheel bearings make a much bigger difference then all the "literature" says (I think this is because most tests on wheels is done "unloaded" so the difference between steal and ceramic bearing doesn't show as much) but under a load (which wheels always have - there IS a big difference). These pulleys really complete the package.

Thanks again for all the support,
Take care,

New products on the horizon

We are in full test mode for some new products that will released later in 2009 and 2010.

Some of the exciting new products are a new version of our popular ceramic pulleys. We have replacement hoods being tested. We are testing several brands of chains that may be released.

Oh yeah, and CARBON! We are jumping back into carbon and it is going to be BIG! For those of you who remember back in 2003-2005 we offered a nice lineup of carbon bars, stems and seatposts. Well, we are going back to our roots a bit and will be releasing new 2010 models. We are testing a 190g carbon bar and much more!

New 2009 Wheels

When a manufacturer releases a new model wheel, we try to provide ceramic upgrades asap. But sometimes we do not have access to all of the new wheels released each year.

So, this is where you come in. We are looking for owners of new model year 2009 wheels that we do not have in our database. We will offer a 25% discount on a bearing upgrade kit if you contact us and provide bearing specs for your 2009 wheels. Please note that we have many 2009 specs already so please contact us in advance to see if we need the specs for your wheels before taking your hubs apart.

We still need some specs on certain Mavic, Rolf, FSA, and more.

White is all the rage

The trend in handlebars and stems has been white in recent years. Much like frames, nothing looks as good as a set of clean white handlebars and stem. In January we released our 2009 white bars and stem. The response has been amazing! In the past we focused on lightweight handlebars but for 2009 we listened to feedback from all of the teams that we sponsor. While lightweight is great, they wanted something geared towards them, the racer. Any racer knows that stiffness and strength, particualrly in the handlebar/stem area, is of great importance. It is so easy to build a 15 lbs. bike these days, there is no reason to sacrifice stiffness in the cockpit.

We sold through our 2009 Team bar so fast, we only have a few left. We have marked these down to only $29.95. Once they are gone, they are gone, so don't miss out.

More Positive Feedback...even from a USPRO National Champion!

"I really think that the Bearings are noticeable. (Mike) Creed and I both noticed it!" Brad Huff - 2006 USPRO National Criterium Champion, Slipstream Chipolte

"I am a Cat 3 member of Team Cycleworks, one of your currently sponsored teams. Early in the race season, my performance was outstandingly mediocre, with most of my finishes in the middle of the field. On my very first race with your ceramic pulley, BB, and wheel bearings, I won by putting 2 minutes into the field. In the third race, I placed third in a difficult Criterium.

Thanks Velocarbon for the extra speed! I love your products!"
