Today, Flybikes released info on their updated Alta stem that got a bit of a facelift for 2015! The Alta 2 has a higher stack heigh and a few cosmetic changes for a better look! Full details below!
“Some of you may have caught a glimpse of this one when we unveiled our Misty Silver Colorway a few days ago. For 2015, we decided to make a few refinements to the Alta stem to give it a slightly higher stack height and a more aesthetically pleasing look. The Alta 2 will offer a higher 25mm stack height, a 7-degree angle on the bottom to give it a less square look and a recessed top for your fork’s top cap to sit flush. The stem will be available in our new Misty Silver color and black.
The Alta 2 stem will be available through all shops and mail-orders that carry Flybikes worldwide in October along with our full range of 2015 product! ” – Flybikes

Today Flybikes dropped a preview of their new Manual brakes using the “Springhanger” system which essentially removes the springs from the arms and puts it on the bridge cable for easy installation and adjustment. This is one item I personally cannot wait to be able to get my hands on…
“The next item in our 2015 preview is something we have been working on for a few years now and we’re very excited to finally release it! The new Manual Springhanger brakes use our new brake system which eliminates the springs on the brake mounts with an oversized spring as the cable hanger that also creates the tension on the arms.
This concept is very simple. We have removed the copper inserts and springs on the arms with kevlar washers and use the spring to adjust the tension by simply bending the spring inward or outward to your preferred tension. By doing this, we have simplified installation, made adjusting the tension more simplistic and given the brakes a cleaner look.
The Manual Springhanger brakes come with the hanger, spring, arms, brake pads and two sets of bolts; one for welded on and Easy Brake System mounts and another for removable brake mounts.
These will be available in October through all shops and mail-orders that carry Flybikes worldwide!”

Over the past year, I think it’s pretty clear that things have been pretty hectic for the DUB crew. Between the “Homegrown” DVD being released, traveling the world working with Monster on The Street Series stops that went down in Capetown, Barcelona, Berlin, Tokyo and New York, the closing of The Loot and a bunch of new clothing designs and a collaboration frame all dropping, I think hectic is a good word for it. We figured it was a good time to get ahold of Jack now that he has a little down time to find out more about everything him and the crew have been getting into lately! Let’s see what he had to say!
