T-Newsletter #2, November 2012
Another day, another development; another month, another miracle; another time, another thing; it's the T-Cycle way! This month we're happy to announce that we've added a new size to the Velogenesis Clamp lineup. Our Velogenesis Clamps now come in 1/2"-5/8", 5/8"-3/4", and the brand new 3/4"-7/8".
Almost a year ago, T-Cycle bought the Velogenesis seat clamp system and immediately began designs to expand the line. Today, we introduce a useful, new, larger clamp to the lineup that secures a 3/4in tube to a 7/8in tube.
Originally designed to meet the demand for clamps to replace the adjustment pins on the larger diameter seat strut tubes used on newer model Terratrikes, the new clamp has some other interesting applications.
The clamps work by independently clamping two sizes of tubing. No slots or changes to the tubing are required. In situations like telescoping seat strut tubes, the clamps allow you to replace the loose fitting pins with a clamp that grips both tubes securely, significantly stiffening the back of the seat. As a bonus, since the new clamp grips both the inner and outer seat strut tubes independently, when you loosen the clamp for the outer tube to remove the seat, the clamps will retain their position on the smaller tubes. When you put your seat back, things will go back to exactly where they were. No muss, no fuss.
The other interesting uses come on handlebars. Because handlebars are 7/8in, the new 3/4in-7/8in clamp allows for a wealth of fastening and mounting possibilities. T-Cycle will be developing some new accessories based on this clamp in the coming months. Let the clamping begin!
Stay tuned for next month's T-Newsletter. Let's just say, it might be pretty moving...
