Stand and Deliver
The first delivery of new parts from Velo Orange for 2012 has just arrived with a few treats inside. Illustrated here is the VO Porteur Double Kickstand which is height adjustable with legs that spread apart when lowered but are close together for better clearance when raised. They come with a top plate and long mounting bolt so can be fitted to bikes with or without a kickstand plate.
Also in the delivery are the new Campagnolo specific VO Grand Touring Hubs. Previously only available with a Shimano fitment freehub body, due to customer demand VO has developed a version to satisfy those with a passion for the Italian maker. Also, we can supply you with just the freehub body if you want to convert your existing Shimano version to Campagnolo - something that’s very easy to do!
We’ve also got more of the VO Grand Cru Fixed Hubs in 32 and 36 hole fitments.
After getting a few in as special orders for customers we’ve also added both types of VO Skewers to the ‘site - the traditional Quick Release and the Anti-theft version. The VO Quick Release skewers feature an internal-cam just like old Campagnolo and Shimano skewers used to; this prevents dirt getting into them and is much stronger with more holding power than current exposed-cam skewers. The Anti-theft skewers are released with a special allen key (supplied) to deter the casual wheel thief.
The VO Campagne rack and Croissant saddle bags have also made their way to our Bag  Clothing page - featuring pockets and pouches for all manner of items, both are made from tough, durable and waterproof dry waxed canvas with leather straps and details.
Among other items also re-stocked are:
