ATI Nookie Bars and Pinion Stem
Price: $85 for the bar and stem comboColors: Chrome bars, silver stem
Info: Nookie bars are designed for jumping, and use ATI’s “bulge technology,” meaning that thick chromoly 1-1/8″ tubing tapers to 7/8″ at the gripping area. The bars use standard-size brake levers, and have a narrow-rise design for more leg room. Since the clamping area is 1-1/8″ your stem selection is limited, but ATI has several stems with different reaches available.
Nankai Techno Front and Freecoaster Rear Hubs
Price: Freecoaster $125, Techno $50Colors: Chrome or black.
Info: Nankai’s two new 48-hole hubs feature robot welded 3mm-thick flanges, and are available in chrome or black. Both hubs are “easy maintenance,” and replacement parts are available. The freecoaster requires no modification, features a new lightweight design, and comes with a 12-tooth machined cog (11-tooth is also available). Both hubs are available in standard 3/8″ and 14mm sizes.
Price: $24Colors: Black seat with colored logos (blue, green, red, gold, and black)
Info: The SNAFU saddle features extra-thick rails, and texured rubberized vinyl on the nose and sides to aid in tricks where you pinch the seat. The seat is slightly smaller than Haro’s Mirra seat, but it is still large enough to be comfortable. SNAFU saddles are used by team riders Mike Ardelean, Josh Heino, and Jerry Bagley.
