Our latest product at VeloSolo is this spacer kit for use with 1" headsets (traditional threaded or Ahead non-threaded) as fitted to road, track or classic and retro MTB frames. New 1 1/8" set now in stock for use with non-threaded headsets. As with our SS kits this is a seven piece kit for really simple and precise adjustments especially when swapping forks between frames or changing headsets without having to cut down the steerer.
Pack of seven spacers includes 1 of 7.5mm, 2 of 5.0mm, 2 of 2.5mm and 2 of 1.0mm (total 24.5mm). As with all our spacers these are CNC custom machined in the UK exclusively for VeloSolo from solid lengths of 6082 aluminium alloy - not cut from tube. Very precisely machined for a superb fit. Available in anodized black, silver, red or gold with the largest spacer laser engraved.
Suitable for use with any 1" threaded headset, insert desired spacers onto fork steerer between headset upper adjustable race and locknut. Or use on 1" Ahead (non threaded steerers) by fitting spacers between stem and headset top race/top cap. Weight of complete set = 20g.
New 1 1/8" set now in stock for the common 1 1/8" Ahead (non threaded steerer) system as per Token below. If in doubt regarding headset size or type required please contact us or check Sheldon Brown here and here.
Limited number of mixed red & gold kits in 1 1/8" only at very special price (£7.95 while stocks last) now available. Each kit is the same spec as the other kits but in a mix of 7.5mm red with the remaining spacers in gold.
There are lots of 1 1/8" headset spacers out there but these are particularly well finished and superb value for money. Suitable for use with 1 1/8" Ahead (non-threaded) headsets only. Kit of three spacers includes 2 x 5mm and 1 x 10mm.
CNC machined with knurled finish to edges. Anodized in a choice of black, silver, red, gold, blue, green or pink. Each spacer engraved with Token logo and designation. Total weight approx 13g.
We are great fans of Restrap and proud to have been associated with them since their humble beginnings in 2010. They have a growing range of superb no-fuss, UK made enviromentally friendly products that are hardwearing with simple styling and subtle branding.
The Hip Pouch is a practical, everyday compact bag easy to fit to any belt. Size is 14cm x 11cm x 4.5cm. Ideal for tools, phone, wallet etc. Material is industrial canvas lined with waterproof 18oz tarpaulin. To the front is a seperate zipped pocket. Strong and secure. Compatible with the Restrap Lock Holster below.
Note: phone, tools etc shown for illustration only - not included.
The Restrap Lock Holster is simple, unobtrusive and made from recycled seatbelt webbing. Wear it on any belt against your hip or combine with the pouch above.
Now in stock is the latest 'one size fits all' model to suit most common D locks
Another simple but essential Restrap offering. The Bottle Holster is belt fitting and made from the same recycled webbing. In this case the bottle webbing is elasticated and this together with an extra toggle will keep your bottle safe and secure. Compatible with all standard cycling water bottles.
Combine with a Campag or Tacx bottle with all in one shipping.
To go with the Restrap bottle holsters above we stock a couple of different water bottles. Both are 750ml (not 500ml for the Campag as pictured). The Campag is in classic Campag silver grey and the Tacx in clear see-through.
The Campag is screw top, the Tacx is a 'flip-top' type. Both are a perfect fit with Restrap's holster.
As with the Rolls above this is another truly classic Italian saddle. The Turbo was introduced back in 1980 and ridden by many Tour greats. It has recently been re-introduced into Selle Italia's range.
High quality full grain real leather cover with a nylon reinforced shell and strong and reliable steel-alloy black rails. Choice of black or white leather. Superb shape for long days in the saddle (slightly more compact than the Rolls). Hand made in Italy.
Our most popular saddle, this is an affordable, classic style perfect for road bikes. This is basically a copy by Velo of the Selle San Marco Regal saddle and fitted as OEM to many production bikes.
Options include black or white (synthetic tan brown now discontinued). The synthetic (grained 'leather' style) model is very practical for everyday UK use. These are great value saddles and a really affordable alternative to a Brooks. No breaking in period required either! Chromed steel rails with no logos.
Also available in black leather and now a new lighter tan brown leather option. Exactly the same design and rivets but with a smoother very fine grained genuine leather cover.
Note: stock of these sometimes varies - at present the black leather and black synthetic models have 'brassed' rivets, the tan leather has 'gold' coloured rivets, the white synthetic leather has chrome rivets.
A more modern styled alternative to the Velo models above. Branded MCSelle Eco as the shell is made from recycled plastic. Very pratical every-day synthetic grained non-slip cover.
Satin steel (cro-mo) rails and subtle branding to nose. Cut away sides and more padding that our other saddles give a flexy and comfortable ride. Perforated top with choice of black or light tan (brown) cover. Well made and fantastic value.
A new post to VeloSolo, these are very attractive and secure alloy seatposts and excellent value. Twin-bolt design for easy adjustment. Weight approximately 320g, setback 20mm.
Material is forged 6061 light alloy. Size is 27.2mm to fit most older steel frames (road and MTB). Black shaft with white upper section. Long length of 350mm. (Note when installing: product manual is packed inside post). Highly recommended.
Superb value micro adjust head alloy seatpost - perfect for budget builds on a steel frame. Attractive polished finish and weight of just 280g (300mm).
Fully adjustable 'Ritchey' pattern head. Size is 27.2mm to fit most older steel frames (road and MTB). Good usable length of 300mm with max extension approx 230mm (9"). Now available in longer 400mm (15.5") too.
Now available in black in both lengths. NOTE: posts are sometimes branded 'Kalloy', sometimes 'UNO' - both are exactly the same and made by Kalloy.
The legendary model as made by Nitto of Japan. These are very high spec and beautifully made posts. High strength forged construction, made in Japan. Packaged in attractive pictorial Nitto box.
Fully adjustable single bolt head. Size is 27.2mm to fit most classic steel frames (road and MTB) - please check size carefully before ordering.

Our best selling take on the classic Campag 'Peanut Butter' tool. Each VeloSolo wrench is individually CNC machined from an 8mm thick block of aircraft grade heat-treated 7075-T6 aluminium alloy for durability and strength.
It's designed purely for one thing - tightening 15mm track nuts (not usable on crank bolts). No bottle opener, no hex keys - just a tactile and ergonomic piece of tool jewellery. Made entirely in the UK and precisely machined for 15mm nuts only.
Anodized in choice of eight colours; black, silver, gold, red, blue, green, orange and magnesium bronze. Now in purple too! Laser engraved. Approximately 30% lighter than a Campag tool at 75g. Length is 158mm, slips easily into a pocket. Note: compatible with virtually all dropouts except for some 'cowled' types.
New! We have a very limited number of hand polished tools now available!
Available in two designs and ladies too. Mens tees printed on Gildan 'Ultra' tees in heavy duty 100% pre-shrunk Jersey cotton with double stitched hems, taped neck and shoulders.
Choose from 'long' logo in cream print on 'Chestnut' , Navy blue or Khaki green. In the 'large wheel' logo we have a cream print on black.
Two sizes - medium (to fit riders around 39/40/41" chest) or large (for 42" + chest) - give or take an inch or so. Width of medium (below arms) is 20"/51cm with length at 29"/74cm. Large is 21.5"/55cm with length at 30"/76cm. Please check your sizing carefully - we often get 'large' tees returned as riders find them too big!
Ladies tee is size small (8/10) in a round neck Gildan fitted tee with large 'wheel' logo in white print on pink. Width (below arms) is 15"/38cm with length at 23"/58cm.
Sheet measures over 17cm across and contains nine different decals. Various VeloSolo designs together with multi-lingual allegiances to the joys of one gear be it fixed or regular singlespeed - 'Derailleur? No Thanks' ('Nein Danke', 'Non Merci' etc). Decals are colour fast, high quality, long-lasting and printed on extruded vinyl suitable for outdoor applications - ie they won't fall off your bike when it rains...
Note: for easy removal of stickers from sheet, remove waste backing area first (area with 'VeloSolo Bikes 2013') at the bottom of the sheet.
Ideal for re-painted frames. Same colour fast, high quality, long-lasting vinyl as our sticker sheets but these have an additional protective clear laminate layer too. Designed for the typical size downtube of a steel frame (approximately 1" to 1 3/8" diameter).
Approximate size is 8" x 4". To fit to frame first wrap around tube without removing backing and mark or measure any excess to be removed (or use a piece of paper as a template). Cut equal amount from each long side so decal joins at underneath of downtube with a minimal gap. De-grease and dry tube thouroughly before application.
As usual with VS kit these are very nicely machined here in the UK. Fits any standard 1 1/8" A-head headset (ie modern clamp on stem/non-quill). Available with laser engraved VeloSolo logo in black anodized finish (polished now discontinued). Alternatively show your agreement for the wise words of Monsieur Henri Desgrange ('...better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailleur...') by declaring: 'Derailleur? No Thanks', 'Nein Danke' or 'Non Merci' in black anodized. Weight 10g.
