Kona has come and gone and the last of the late season races are starting to wrap up. We are just two weeks out from IM Florida. If you are going to be heading to Panama City Beach, definitely let us know. We are just hitting our taper and looking forward to a great day. Current weather is calling for sunny with a low of 60 and a high of 77. Should be some great racing!

Updates to ProShift
Baron Controls announced an update to its ProShift units this week. With a requestable firmware update, owners of ProShift now have access to the following features:
- While in Automatic Control Mode, provide an option to ALWAYS stay in the Large Chainring.
- Allow moving to the Small Chainring by using either the ProShift Pushbuttons or the ProShift Wireless Aero Bar Remote Shifters.
- Resume Automatic Gear Shifting from whatever gear is ultimately selected by the cyclist.
Silca Updates the T-Ratchet + Ti-Torque Multitools
Silca shared an update to their T-Ratchet + Ti-Torque Multitools with us this week. One of our few complaints was that the numbers were not super easy to read. It appears we weren’t alone, and Silca responded in kind. The Ti-Torque beam now has three separate scales on it; 2-6, 3-5 and 4-8. This allows you to more easily see when you’ve reached your desired torque setting.
Other feature highlights include interchangeable magnetic components to convert from a screwdriver to ratcheting T-Handle in seconds, which gives the user the ability to have several tools at once in an extremely small duck waxed canvas carrying case that fits perfectly into a jersey pocket.
