Ice Bike 2014 - Parts and Accessories

There where just a few new and exciting things this year, but the shoes are a great opportunity to remind us of all the great products that are available at just a click. 

Some tidy POS to illustrate the actual size differences between the three sizes. 

Shimano only make a few wheel models :-/

There are some interesting documents listing part codes by Groupset. Could come in handy I'm sure. 

MPart have rebranded and have a nice range of products. They have a great list of problem solvers that can be hard to find. 

Really really small Allen key set. Nice and thin and lightweight. This one is the starting point starting at only £7.99. More sets are available in the range and I can see these being popular. 

Mudguards to replace SKS. Quality guards. 

Bike storage can offen be a problem but Gear Up have a large array of solutions from single hooks to hoists. 

Continental have launched the GP4000s II and in colours. These will be popular come the spring. 

Shimano's new shoes are looking well this year. But as a colour burst, expect nothing less from Pearl Izumi. 

Lazer had some interesting products to talk about. These large variety of covers will be trending this summer I imagine. 

Jason was looking rather smug for some reason..

But not quite as happy with this lid. I'm not sure why, it's a top dog lid and the glasses are part of a clever integration idea. There are magnets on the straps so the glasses can be attached. (This is still RULES compliant as the glasses attach on the outside if the straps). Another cool point is that there are two more magnets on the back of the helmet so you can store them if you don't want to wear them. 

Thule racks and bags arnt all that new. But they are stunning quality and the ideas behind every design point is justified and well executed. Not the cheapest equipment but the best never is the cheapest. Bar mounted and rack mounted bags, perfect for touring and bike packing. 

Not a current bike but black and yellow, just awesome. 

This has been a long time coming. From Kryptonite Locks, this mounts on the bottle cage bosses and allows you to transport a chain lock securely. Simple, but clever. Ones if those products that should have been around years ago.. 

And as promised, some more images of the Garmin Vivofit Band:

Very nice little product. Simple with only one button and the unit will set targets on your behalf. It's got loads of adjustment and two band sizes included. There are many colours to pick from and they will be in stock very soon. 

There are so many brands and products from Madison that a small write up can't do it justice. We can't wait to have these new products in store!
