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.
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 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.
