New to Hardcore are Foundry Bikes. Foundry comes from the same guys who brought you Surly and Salsa and is a full line of Carbon Cyclocross, Road and Mountain bikes. Their moto is "It's a Tool Not a Trophy" and their bikes reflect this yeoman aesthetic. If you want flashy Euro-graphics then these aren't for you. Foundry is all about making great bang for the buck bikes that get the job done in a non-flashy way and yet offer future proof designs and amazing performance. These are bikes for the guys who sponsor themselves, race on Sundays and ride to work on Mondays. If they had bikes in a beer commercial it would be these.
In stock now is the Harrow which is their new Cross bike featuring 40 ton carbon, Disc Brakes and 15mm front axles. The 15mm is standard on better mountain bikes but new to cross and road. It allows one-handed wheel changes, is way stiffer and crucially, prevents your front disc brake from trying to yank your front wheel out of the dropouts. Some of the guys who designed these are bike mechanics so they are easy to work on with things like commons sense cable routing (meaning Barry won't rage putting them together). Anyone who's had to fish a shift or brake cable through a carbon frame and managed to not turn to drink will appreciate this.
The Harrow is available in 3 Kits and price points: Shimano 105 and Ultegra as well as full-on race SRAM Red. The 105 goes for 2999.99, the Ultegra 3599.99 and the Red at 4999.99.
