Dub just hit me with some exciting product news that may change the peg game…
“Introducing IGI DRY CLIMATE CAP…IGI is proud to introduce a new idea to Flatland. It seems griptape and knurling just aren’t the ideal for our shoes and hands in a sport where repetition is key to success. Here at IGI, we’ve been looking for a new kind of grip, this technology is pricy and might not be cost effective for now, but this type of finish will outlast any type of knurling or griptape without destroying your hands or shoes. Tested and approved by Benjamin Hudson and Jean William Prévost for use in dryer, dustier climates such as Chile, California or even Beijing. These caps will keep your foot where it should be, mid-pivot when riding a dusty environment. Just keep a pair of these in your toolbox for use when necessary. A few pairs are available, but we are not looking to make sales for now, when it becomes more affordable to make this we will put em up for sale, contact us if you might be interested in them. DM, PM or send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org. igi #igotit photo by @DominicSalehPictures”.

Shawn White over at Bizhouse HQ just published this comprehensive how-to build a Profile Z Coaster wheel. I say comprehensive as it’s just over an hour long. So if you ever need some tips, you can refer to this!
Shawn White over at Bizhouse is always thinking of new products to keep us all rolling. Peep the new tall stackers, if you run a lot of stackers under your stem this going to be way neater option for you.
No word on release date, but I would imagine available pretty soon.
Yesterday I caught a photo (see above) of Lee Musselwhite’s signature Deco prototype. I hit Lee up for some info, here is what he had to say about the frame:
“I’ve been testing my signature Deco frame for just over a year now and it rides awesome, so stoked Chad put this together for me it’s got really tight geometry 18.8TT & 13″CS so is very responsive and rigid. Perfect for back and front wheel tricks. No plans for production at mo, unless chad get a flood of emails asking for one hahah”.
