NEW Tubeless Valves from Juice Lubes
The best looking, best performing, most tooled-up valves in the game and absolutely packed with features to make tubeless super simple.
Each valve cap is packed with 3 super useful tools, more than any other on the market. Each has a valve core tool and spoke keys for 3.2mm and 3.4mm spoke nipples. Tools are on both caps so no stress if you ever lose one.
Tubeless needn’t be a faff and our valves make it easy peasy.
First up, the valve core is removable to make adding sealant a breeze, and that valve core tool is always close at hand when you need it.
There’s a 4mm Allen key base for easy removal and a selection of rubber grommets for a perfect, airtight fit. Last but not least, a slotted base works perfectly with your tire inserts and flat-sided edges on the lock ring help you clamp it down tight.
Finally, the packaging is 100% cardboard for easy recycling.

Enduro Keeps You Rolling Smoothly
With fall/winter season comes inclement weather. Depending on which part of the country you’re in, you will get rain, mud, and general road grime. If you race cross, then there is endless washing at the end of a race or during if you’re one of the lucky ones to have two bikes and support.
Bearings are one of the critical parts of a bike. Without them, things just wouldn’t work. Bearings are in Hubs, BB, Pedals, Freehubs, Pivots, Pulley wheels, and Headsets. They are parts we don’t think about until it squeaks or goes wrong.
Enduro Bearings has been at the forefront of bicycle bearing technology since 1996. The Industry brands that want the best bearings spec Enduro and still do.
If you’ve never tried them, I bet you have without knowing. Did you know that Enduro bearings are found in PIVOT bikes, Industry 9, Cane Creek, Niner Bikes, Crank Brothers, Alchemy bikes, Canyon, Stans, and many more see here.
With so many bearings, where are the best upgrade locations?
#1 BB, Hubs, these two components do a full rotation, so a nice set of Stainless or Ceramic bearings will roll smooth and offer better resistance to corrosion and wear. XD-15 bearings are the best quality Enduro offers, developed by Airbus for bearings in plane wings that could not be serviced but are required just to keep going against de Ice fluid altitude temps and pressures; XD-15 really is a set it and forget it set up.
#2 Headset bearings, A headset sees a lot of load forces put through it, and it gets a good amount of rotation, and the lower bearing sees that muck getting flicked up from the front wheel.
Other Enduro Options:
The rage seems to be large OS versions that require switching out parts. Enduro offers pulleys that are a direct fit, offer XD15 bearings, and are made from 500 AF Delrin with Teflon, which offers excellent durability, smooth running, and a lifetime guarantee on the bearing.
If you are working on any maintenance features or looking for easy buyer/gift guide products, Enduro can help.
If you want to try out any Enduro products or even talk to Matt Harvey, the founder, I guarantee you’ll learn something; everyone does. I am here to help.
Let me know what you’re riding or building, and I’ll be happy to set you up with the best setup for your bike.
