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. 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 (not 1 1/8" - see Token below) - 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.
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. Coming soon are three new products.
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 second of Restraps' new products the Lock Holster is simple and unobtrusive and made from recycled seatbelt webbing. Wear it on any belt against your hip or combine with the pouch above.
Available in two sizes to fit different sized D locks. Firstly the Evolution Mini D lock holster (small): Fits Kryptonite Mini D and similar sized locks and second the Kryptonite New York Fahgettaboudit (large) lock holster.
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 new Restrap bottle holsters above we are now stocking a couple of different water bottles. The smaller Campag 500ml in classic Campag silver grey and the larger Tacx 750ml 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.
The genuine article from the legendary Italian saddle maker. Classic shape that seems to suit so many cyclists, consequently the Rolls has a huge following of loyal riders ('Google' for reviews).
High quality real leather cover over a nylon reinforced shell that flexes slightly to give superb comfort. Strong and reliable steel rails. Hand made in Italy.
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.
This is an affordable, classic style saddle perfect for road bikes. This is basically a copy by Velo of the Selle San Marco Regal saddle. The tan leather version is found as OEM equipment on the 2010 Colnago Super off the peg fixed wheel bike.
The synthetic (grained 'leather' style) model is very practical for everyday UK use. Chromed steel rails with matching chrome rivets (see note below) and no logos. Superb value and highly recommended.
We now have these available in black leather too - exactly the same design and rivets but with a smoother very fine grained genuine leather cover.
Note: latest stock of these (both black synthetic and leather) have 'brassed' type rivets rather than shiny chrome - see first two pics in link.
We now have the Velo saddle with a tan or white cover. Exactly the same design as above but with chrome rivets rather than 'brassed'.
The tan version is a really affordable alternative to a Brooks and being synthetic is perfect for typical UK weather. No breaking in period required either! Chromed steel rails with matching chrome rivets and no logos.
Another new saddle to VeloSolo and 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).

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.
Superb polished and anodized finish with 'Nitto 65' engraved logo in black. Two lengths available; 250mm (max extension approx 180mm) or 300mm (max extension approx 230mm).
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. 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 five colours; black, silver, gold, red and blue. Three new colours now available including green, orange and magnesium bronze. 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.
Available in two designs and now in 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.
New colours now in stock. Choose from 'long' logo in cream print on 'Chestnut' , Navy blue or Khaki green. In the 'large wheel' logo we have a white print on 'Italian' blue or pink tee or 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!
New 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 2009') 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 polished or black anodized finish. 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.
