Pitlock Newsletter

March 2019

Dear friends, fans and bicycle security enthusiasts,

some time has passed since our last update. Winter is almost over in our hemisphere, the first good-weather-only cyclists are swarming out while the hard-boiled among us are store their first pieces of winter equipment.

For Pitlock there have been quite a few changes also. As many of you know, we opened new facilites for part of our office and production. But now work goes on as usual and there are a few news regarding Pitlock products and events:

Again we got together with our friends from Busch & Möller to look out for current compatibility. We are happy to sa that Pitlock is still compatible even with there newest headlight models for E-Bikes. As an example see our Set 13 on the new Busch & Möller IQ-XS E.
Of course, there are also news about thru axles. Not only are new models coming but also we are now including a compensation washer in our rear wheel E-thru axles. Since the rear wheel configurations with E-thru mount do show a lot of variations in width, the washer can be used to compensate the Pitlock axle when its too long and has the thread protruding too much from the dropout. As all of our products, the washers are made stainless steel and coloured so they don't stand out when installed. One washer is included per set or find individual washers in our shop.
Responding to the immense amount of requests, Pitlock will soon be offering a 15x100 thru axle for road, gravel and cyclocross bikes. Set 25 will be available in april. With its total length of 125 mm and the regular M15x1.5 thread, it will be the perfect upgrade for your modern road bike or crossbike.
On the weekend of the 27.-28.04. Pitlock will be present at the Velo fair in Berlin. Find our stand under the outer ceiling of the Tempelhof Airport building. It will be a good opportunity to chat about bicycles and other stuff, so come by!
We wish you a good start into this years cycling season!
