CANE CREEK “CRONO” WHEELSET
Cost: $480
Colors: Black
Info: Looking for a way to strengthen and lighten your wheels at the same time? Cane Creek Crono wheels could be your answer. Because the nipples connect to the spokes at the hub, there’s less rotating weight on the outside of the wheel. Also, the straight-pull spokes can be tightened more with their hex nipples, creating a stiffer wheel with fewer spokes. A 3/16″ open-end wrench is included with each wheelset. Shown is the cruiser wheelset. Twenty-inch wheelsets are available for the same price.

KONA “PRIMO” PANTS
Cost: Pants: $129
Colors: Green, red, black
Info: Kona uses a strong lightweight, breathable nylon as its main fabric in their pants. The pants are cut high in the back to prevent plumber’s butt and low in the front so they don’t bunch up when you’re sitting down. The Primo’s feature tear-away open Velcro on the bottom of the legs for easy on/off, even with shoes. Bonus info: the Primo labels on the pants glows in the dark and the hangtag also works as a coaster for your favorite beverage.
