The igi Microphone Peg designed by Dub is dropping during the fall. Much like Dub’s riding, a lot of work and attention to detail has gone into refining this peg design. Check out the photo above, and the first thing you notice is the clean Black, Anodised Silver colour way, with Silver Cap as a reference point.
Dub commented “The ball is better for the posture of the foot. Positioning is easier to find and locking in just happens. The knurling on the ball really does make a difference in a dry and dusty climate. Surface where cap and peg meet are at an angle so no seizing, I also use a reverse thread to stop seizing.
The rubber grip keeps your shoes and hands good to session all day without destroying your hands and shoes.”

Hoffman Bikes just honoured Matt Wilhelm with a well deserved signature frame that is in its first prototype stages. The specs are below, check it out! He is looking for a name for the frame, suggestions?
Top Tube: 18.9
Head Tube Angle: 75
Seat Tube Angle: 70 (Matt likes this mellow angle because it gives more room up front).
He also have deeper dropout slots than many frames and experimenting with a shorter rear end.
Chad J hit us up with news on his updated S&M Intrikat frame!
“There are a few updates with this version: 1st is the drop-outs, they now have integrated tensioners and longer slots allowing more travel forward and backward for easier adjusting, etc. 2nd is the smaller diameter top tube with straight gauge tubing. 3rd is the investment cast seat clamp and new seat tube.” Hit the link for more pictures.
igi SweetSPOT Pedal release from Jean William P on Vimeo.
Dub is always on point, and working towards new designs for the benefit of the flatland world. peep this dope new video he just dropped for the official press release of his new igi “sweetspot” pedal. Dub explains all below:
To the riders of the Flatlands,
Some of you might have noticed the ‘’igi’’ logo here and there. The idea of the ‘’igi’’ logo/concept comes from the word Original, or Origins. We must give out respect to our origins, especially in Flatland where whoever came first worked really hard to get us to this point in time in the evolutionary latter of Flatland.
Igi will represent what I have been thriving for in Flatland since I got into it, it is the sum of my years spent on the bike and of the experience I have gained throughout these many fun years of spinning, turbining and pivoting on the peg and now on the pedal.
This is a pedal which for some won’t change much, but for the ones who see the potential in it, it might just do miracles for them. I have withheld on developing products for years, because I thought the world had enough products in use and in it’s dumps and oceans already, though now I see how something positively charged can enhance the Flatland experience and contribute to, and accelerate the progressive process. Within that process is the will to make the world a better place. I want to make you feel better riding flatland, keep more people practicing on the bike and having fun, thus keeping people away from the oh so awful consumerism which has taken over our era.
Flatland is still in it’s infancy and if we feed it right it will grow beyond what we ever thought possible. I won’t prone to hold the ultimate truth, though this product might help you find it!
I have been testing this shape for almost a year, and it enabled many things I thought impossible; I am at the final prototyping phase and will be entering into production this summer.
I thought I would let you guys know what I was up to, the Microphone pegs will be available early summer.
