HIPLOK Z LOK
Small, simple, effective
Having a small lock to prevent a crime of opportunity can be all the difference between having your bike stolen or not. The Z Lok is a small lightweight design that looks more like a heavy-duty zip tie with a special key to release the strap. These straps are sold in pairs and can be found at hiplok.com for $23. www.hiplok.com
IBIS PORK CHOP FRAME BAG
You can put meat in there
Ibis recently announced its new Mojo and Ripley bikes aimed at getting rowdy on just about any type of trail. Ibis has part- nered with Blackburn to produce a custom frame bag that sits in the space just behind the head tube. The Pork Chop retails for $50 and is size-specific to the frame. This bag is large enough to house a spare tube, CO2 and maybe even a modest-sized pork chop (we wouldn’t recommend it, though). These can be ordered online at www.ibiscycles.com.
