Sometimes little things take time....it seems so easy but its not. It would obviously be easiest to supply with every frame a touch up paint bottle. Impossible our painter needs a special license for that which he can not get.
We have been working on touch up paint for a while and offer it in Europe since a couple of months. Try to get that over to the USA? Impossible! You need to have a special education to deal with logistics of explosives and guess what you can only ship that stuff ground-so that's a bit difficult. So we had to restart the very time consuming process in the USA and beginning of January 2019 we will finally have touch up paint available in the USA. You can order that through our webshop. Check back first week of January when it should be live.
Next development that looks so simple and took over a year. With Shimano DI2 and Sram ETAP getting more popular we had to find a nice solution for the holes in the bottom bracket (the current cable guide is held in place by the tension of the shift cable) as well as in the chain stay and then also one of our famous cable entry guide with just one hole for the brake cable. That's the beauty of our frames you can make them compatible with any future shifting systems. And after a year - that passed by so quickly- we will have a new kit available that contains those 3 little items that can be used both for Shimano DI2 (the Shimano entry guide comes with every frame) and Sram E-Tap. This kit should be available end of January 2019.
Two non OPEN items that I would like to feature.
We had a lot of request for a Chris King headset that will fit the NEW UP/ UPPER frame. Now finally Chris King has one available and its called the DropSet 2. Item Number in black is FB2002 and description is DS42IDS52 45. The only thing you have to keep in mind is that you don't need the crown race supplied in that kit.
Last but not least I do assemble a lot of tubeless tires during a season. Even it got much easier to find tire-rim combinations that you can actually pump up with a normal pump it is sometimes still a hassle. Here comes the perfect solution for tubeless from Schwalbe the tire booster. Not something I would take in my hand luggage in a plane(same as touch up paint...) but it works very well.
That is my last BLOG for this year. I wish everybody a relaxing holiday and a great start into 2019
