State Bicycle Co. x Bob Marley collection

State Bicycle Co. is known for doing some pretty cool collabs, but this has to be the most chill of them all. On April 20th the brand debuted a line of bikes, clothing, and accessories to celebrate the “music and culture surrounding Bob Marley, the unity of cycling, and sustainable living.” The Klunker shown here comes with a custom hemp frame bag and saddle and features a print of Marley’s signature.

Time MTB pedals updated

Time may not be the first pedal brand mountain bikers think of, but that could change with a refresh of the SRAM-owned brand’s clipless pedal lineup. The Time Speciale is the brand’s most aggressive pedal, now offered in two sizes and designed for gravity riding with a generous platform that includes four pins per side. The Time MX series ditches the pins while remaining robust overall, while the ATAC series is the slimmest and is designed for XC and gravel riding.

New TRP S05E disc brake rotor

TRP says their new S05E rotor improves deceleration by 10% over previous offerings thanks to newly optimized laser-cut holes. The TRP S05E will be available in 203mm and 220mm diameters with a 2.3mm thickness.

Santa Cruz, California-based Praxis just released a slew of new components last week, including the brand’s first pedal, the Podium.
