MARSHGUARD THE STASH – E*THIRTEEN TUBELESS RIM TAPE – TIMBUK2 FOX BACKPACK

MARSHGUARD THE STASH

Everyone loves a good stash

MarshGuard fenders might be a minor add-on accessory, but the benefits of not having mud and grit thrown up on your face during a ride or race are second to none. The Stash is another little something extra to disperse extra water from coming up under the gaps of wider downhill forks. Check out www.marshguard. com to order yours, as well as maybe a fender or two.


E*THIRTEEN TUBELESS RIM TAPE

You should go tubeless

We have all seen their reliable chainguides and oversized hubs, but lately E*Thirteen has been expanding their product offerings to more than just the big stuff. Tubeless rim tape comes in 25-, 28-, or 30-millimeter widths. This tape is surprisingly easy to install and doesn’t stick to your fingers the way some other tapes do. Stop by your local bike shop to order a roll or two.


TIMBUK2 FOX BACKPACK

American Stitched Bags

Timbuk2 makes some of the nicest backpacks and messenger bags on the market, so it’s no surprise that Fox Suspension would have them produce a handful of custom ones. This back is water resistant, has a fleece-lined pocket for your laptop and uses a mesh back. These bags are made in San Francisco, California. More information and a full line of their gear can be found at www.timbuk2.com.
