Look stylish and show off that you found the best deal in bicycle wheels anywhere! These Snapback hats are a perfect gift for any cyclist in your life (including yourself!). Featuring a cotton poly blend with a mesh back and an adjustable back to fit any head. Wear the brim curved or straight, take off the sticker or leave it on (depending on whether you listen to CDs or stream music online). But no matter what. . .you'll look good in this hat!
On behalf of every cyclist everywhere. . .Thank you Tullio!! The quick release skewers are one of the most important parts of the bike. They literally hold the wheels in place. Having a good set of skewers come with the wheels is important to us, so much so that many people have asked to buy the skewers separately.
Getting the lever nice and tight is important so, vs. relying on an external lever pivot, we have an internal cam mechanism to close the skewers. It means a more secure hold. . .something we like to have while riding at high speeds.
These are not those ultra light skewers that look like you'd be better off holding your wheel in place with a couple of tooth picks and a rubber band.
These skewers weigh 57 grams for the front and 63 grams for the rear. That's not over the top heavy for a skewer, but more importantly; they work! They hold your wheels in place securely while allowing you to quickly remove the wheel when needed. It's the vision Tullio had so many years ago.

We're happy to announce that we now have Boyd Cycling T-shirts available for sale. Made from 100% cotton, the shirts combine that stealthy look to compliment the wheels. In keeping with the aesthetics of the wheels, there is a dark gray logo on the chest of the black T-shirt.

110mm valve for 90mm carbon and 90 Road Disc
Put more rubber in contact with your rim bed. This gives a more air tight seal, allows more sealant to seal the base, and prevents the valve from spinning when you are tightening the nut. When you are trying to prevent air from leaking, having more contact is a huge advantage.
As you can see from the picture below, the rubber actually goes down the shaft of the valve. This means the rubber is pressing through the valve hole and tape, instead of bare metal. Again, this helps to create a more air tight seal. . .preventing leaks and making set up much easier.
The square bottom on the rubber, plus the rubber extending down the valve helps create the best air tight sealing system. Set up is a breeze and works much better than other valves on the market.
It started off as the simplest of ideas. I was out mountain biking with some friends and on the last run of the day (as we were running out of daylight). One of my friends got a flat tire and we couldn't get it to seal again (the tubeless sealant had boogered up). So, we were going to throw a tube in and ride back to the car. Problem is the nut on the tubeless valve was on so tight than none of us could remove it! I finally was able to take two rocks and loosen the nut enough and said "Somebody needs to make this nut a wingnut!"
That was the "a-ha!" moment. We drew up the wingnut, had prototypes made, and brought them to Interbike with us. . . almost as a fun little side idea. Well, every cycling publication wrote about the wingnut and BikeRadar even mentioned it as one of their favorite things at Interbike. We quickly filed patent work, and produced a bunch of them.
Every set of Boyd Cycling Tubeless Valves will come with a pair of the wingnuts. It makes it very easy to tighten the nut down by hand. More importantly, if you are riding and need to loosen the nut, you can do that by hand as well.
As much as we don't like to admit we all fret over every gram. . .we do. We don't want heavy valves throwing off the balance of the wheels. These valves are a light weight aluminum that helps keep the weight down when your wheel is spinning. Weights for the valve (with nut for tightening) is: 44mm - 5 grams 55mm - 5 grams 60mm - 6 grams 80mm - 6 grams 110mm - 8 grams
