If you're referring to the Black Cat pedal, it's new. The TMAC pedal is still alive and kicking under the same name.

Sorta, but there are some key differences I noticed. The Knuckleduster has quite a bit softer durometer rubber than the Death Grip, as well as it uses the chevron pattern for the palm area as opposed to a Ruffian patter (again adding more cush), and the waffle pattern is recessed with the Knuckleduster instead of raised.

Wow. I'm 6'1 with a 29" inseam... what the heck is wrong with me. I guess I'm all torso and you're all legs.

Looks almost like a standard wireless bike computer like a Garmin or something, to measure distance, cadence, and speed.

The cassette fits a standard "10-speed" splined driver but requires the use of their 11-speed chain (PC-1130 is recommended) and a spacer behind it as the cassette cogs are spaced for 11-speed and "lopped off at 7."

I did like the Split Second stem, too. Like the Point One Podium pedals, I kept that stem on my bike wayyyyyyy too long. I think both the pedals and the stem lasted me 3 or 4 bikes...

He's running a med frame for the freeride setup and a large for the DH. The shorter stem is likely to compensate for the longer reach.

John, our tester for this particular product, can definitely hold his own on a bike... even if he runs crazy high pressure compared to most.

Sorry, I just saw this message. I used "Aircraft Stripper" that I got from a local auto parts store. They make both a paint on "gel" and a spray on. I used a combination of both. Took me a good 6 or so hours... I'm thinking in the future, if I ever strip a bike again, I'll pay the $100 or so bucks it takes to get it chemically done at a powder coater. That way I won't have to worry about all the chemicals on me from doing it myself and it won't be media/sand/walnut blasted so all the tolerances will be good still.

If you plan on doing it yourself, gloves, a good mask or even respirator and long sleeves are a must.

Currently only the M/L size is available, with the XS/S and XL/XXL sizes "available at a later date."
