Tune


Tune are one of the many high-end machine houses from Germany that build über-bike parts that most can only dream of, 'Born in the Black Forest, Built to enjoy nature.' They have a number of new and interesting products, firstly the Linientreu laser alignment tool, following on from their Spurtreu tool that is used for aligning handlebars and stems to the front wheel. The Linientreu attaches to the derailleur, with either 5mm or T25 adaptors, and beams a laser on to the chain to help find the perfect line. This patent pending tools cost €159.

Tune - Eurobike 2017


The Leichtes Stück seatpost is one for the XC or cyclo-crossers out there who ride a 27.2mm seat tube. This post is inspired by lattice structures like cranes—material is machined away to leave a unique looking post. Adjustment is limited, but riders can choose from 350mm or 420mm lengths, the shorter of the two weighs 155g, 40 grams lighter than their equivalent 'normal' seatpost. I'm not sure why, but it reminds me of something else?


Tune

Tune are better known for their focus on lightweight components, but they also cater for the more extreme sides of the riding spectrum. The carbon WunderBar has and 800mm width, but can be cut down to 700mm. The WunderBar has 25mm rise, 9º backsweep and 5º upsweep and the 35mm clamp diameter is designed to work with the Geiles Teil stem. The 200-gram bar is suitable for riders up to 110 kg and costs €219.

The Geiles Teil or GT35 for short has a 35mm length and 35mm clamp diameter. Plenty of internal machining and titanium bolts brings the weight down to 112g, the price is TBC. Like most Tune parts, there are six anodized color or raw alloy to choose from.

Tune
Tune already have a huge range of hubs covering every possibility out there. Now they are starting to add centre-lock options to the range.

The world's most expensive bench? Just one of those carbon saddles cost around €200!

 No idea, but I've heard this one can only be used with one of these saddles with a cutaway section in the middle, what are those called?

 @WAKIdesigns:

My seatpost was vibrating?

In the event of a vibrating seatpost, we have to use the indefinite article "A seatpost"...not "YOUR seatpost"

 Pinkbike: We need a review of how well that seatpost works with the Essax Shark Saddle, STAT!

 @Thustlewhumber: From their website:"it interacts with the user giving information on how to be seated"

Well I should say so with a shark fin up your ass!

 @WAKIdesigns: no, they will add their newly developed Vibromore material.

 They should have called it the tumescence...

 @Connerv6: Surely the point of a seatpost like that is to reduce vibrations on a road bike... ironic maybe?

 Anonymous complaint to mfg: "Can you make it rebound faster?" Mfg: "Sir, it is not a dropper post." Anonymous: "Well why not?! You put veins on it. Finish what you started!"

 It would go well with this: goo.gl/hXTYrN

 Id prefer to keep everything about my derailleur a mystery. Why it works, why it doesn't, my theory has to do with the position of the moon in relationship to earth. I don't need no laser to tell me different.

 You know, I have one simple request. And that is to have parts with FRICKIN LASER BEAMS ATTACHED TO THEIR HUBS.

 I remember when the first series of $18,000CAD price tag Trek Emonda SLR bikes came out and they had a complete weight of 11 pounds.... We had one come to the shop and seeing all the parts that TUNE had made for that thing almost made it seem worth it... almost.. I must say they make some beautiful stuff.

 You see, that seat post looks like a throbbing, veiny, erect phallic member. The funny thing is that it would appear that the rider is sitting upon the veiny erect phallic member, as if engaged in coitus of the posterior orifice. That's funny!

 Funny to read this with the german Productnames

 That laser thingy would be cool if you could somehow use it for SS chain alignment. The phalic seatpost would definitely be dope on a singlespeed 'cuz everyone knows SSers have big c**ks.

 The seatpost should be called the VFB: Veiny Triumphant Bastard!

 That seems like an awful lot to pay for a tool that'll do a job that any mechanic can do in 5 minutes, and cost 1/10th the price

 Assume you're referring to the seat post?

 Yeah, lightweight "dent-nduro" stuff from a company does not even have a racing team.

 The engineer who designed the seat post has been watching YouP--N way too much.

 When I see Tune I think of weight weenies...

 The decision to use a seat without a center slot has to be intentional or the comments section would be even shlonger.

 Probably the idea was to make the seatpost look like rebar (construction)... bunch of weirdos here on PB.

 Seems like they do a great job of making really expensive formula hubs.
