Merritt Brian Foster 8.25″ Bars On Sale For $20!

It doesn’t even seem like all that long ago that 8.25″ tall bars were considered humungous. These days though… that’s definitely on the smaller side. And for that reason Merritt is blowing out their remaining 8.25″ Brian Foster signature bars for just $20! You already know they’re 8.25 inches tall, but the other specs are 29″ wide, 12° back sweep, 2° up sweep and a weight of 27.1 ounces. They feature multi-butted heat treated chromoly tubing, dual radius bends, a 19mm crossbar and of course come with the Blue Falcon’s seal of approval. If that sounds good to you then…

Product: Merritt Battle Cranks

If you’re in the market for a new set of cranks this season then you should definitely add Merritt’s new Battle Cranks to your list of considerations. Their heat treated 4130 arms feature a rectangular shape and wrap around both the spindle and pedal bosses for maximum strength. Equally as strong is the 48 splined hollow 22mm spindle that they ride on. If you’re a weirdo like our friend Chris Bird and like to run your sprocket on the wrong side, you’re in luck because the Battle Cranks are right and left drive side compatible thanks to having sprocket bosses…

Sneak Peek: Merritt Battle Rim

Sean Curran posted up this look at the new Battle rim that they’ve been cooking up over at Merritt. They’re not quite ready to show off the rim’s internal structure just yet, but from what I’ve heard, Sean was burning the midnight oil getting its design just right so that the rim would be as strong as possible. Apparently he succeeded, because the team has been doing their best to kill them and they’re holding up to everything that’s been dished out. No word on when the Battle rims will be available to us plebeians, but we’ll let you know…
