Engin Cycles’ dropper-friendly seat collar provides new measurement, stems drop costs
When Drew Guldalian of Engin Cycles says he’s been busy in the shop with projects for the last year, you know it’s going to be good.
A new, smaller 31.8 Seat Collar joins their 34.9mm size and should make many roadies, gravel cyclists, and 27.2mm seatpost lovers very happy.
The meticulous in-house machining promises a tight fit at low torque values, perfect for featherweight carbon fiber road bike frames and posts, or your enduro mountain bike with a finicky dropper post. The 31.8 Seat Collars come in four different anodized colors, your choice of titanium (17g, $52.00) or steel (18g, $45.00) bolts.
Engin 35mm stems add steel bolt option
For folks who love Engin’s 35mm MTB stem, but didn’t have the cash to dish out (or care about saving a couple grams) will be pleased to hear you can get them in all the same colors, but now with steel hardware. That’ll save you $30, bringing the price down to $150 while only adding 7-8g.
New framebuilding tools coming…
And lastly, for Engin’s tease project that will be unfolding on their social channels soon, they are developing a “game-changing” frame jig for all the bike builders out there. While they’re not giving up the details yet, they say it will “offer features and degrees of precision previously unattainable.”
