Smartboy Touchscreen Device Holder

This mount allows you to fit your smart phone to your handlebar in seconds. The supplied plastic case keeps your device dry and in reach. It also features a transparent touch window so you can operate your touchscreen.

Anywhere Bottle Cage

Want to be able to carry more water bottles but your frame doesn’t allow it? The Anywhere bottle cage can be mounted on any tube with Velco strips. Available with or without top cage. The straps are suited for outer diameters from 50-80mm, but a shorter strap set is included, so you can also mount the adapter to your seat post.

Flap Guard Minimalist Mud Guard

This light weight 45g mud guard protects your face and the fork seals from mud and water. It is made of flexible material and fits most 26”, 27.5” and 29” front forks or rear side of your bike. The mud guard is fixed with the included zip ties.

Fatboard Fenders for Fat Bikes

The larger the tires, the more muck flying around. With the Fatboard Set you mount one mud guard under the down tube and the other to the seat post. The latter has a two-hinge arm that allows for adjustability to the geometry of your bike.
