New Stuff Roundup

The past week has seen two big releases that I’m pretty excited/interested/curious/other synonyms about: The HDPE wheelcover from Fixcraft and the Ninja mallet head from MILK.

HDPE Wheelcover

This little beauty uses HDPE and thins it out for wheel covers. I haven’t had the chance to use this material yet, but according to the Fixcraft website and facebook page it’s much more strong in wintertime than the corrugated plastic we’re used to. Available in 26 and 700, the wheel covers come in just white for now (which is cool, cause my wife does my wheel cover painting for me. awww yeah – artists at work).

MILK Ninja Mallet Head

I really know very little about this head, other than it’s supposed to be ultra light and they made this cute little infographic about it:

I’m hoping to get my hands on one for review, but we’ll see how that goes (Geneva is far away from Lancaster, I hear). It’s black UHMW and sure to be a blast to use. Here’s an actual picture of it:

At any rate, both of these products move us nicely along the path of optimized products. Hooray for everybody.

    Fixcraft had the unibodies in black UHMW during the prototype stages. Not sure if exact same stuff but it was crispier feeling, definitely a little lighter, but they broke in half unlike the white uhmw. I’ll try to find a pic.

      Me and Fixcraft have a standing agreement. I beg like a dog for a bone, and every once in a while they give me a damned porterhouse steak.
