So, to start this summer, there will be a few changes over here at the studio, as we have a lot of exciting ventures and designs to work out the details of, and also quite a few car builds that need to get buttoned up so we can enjoy them. As a result, there will be changes to the projects we hand select to work on from this day forward.
-the spinfab store will remain completely open all summer and all orders will ship out as they always have within 1-2 days of order. spinfab.bigcartel.com
-all new wheel builds will cease for the summer. obviously all current sets in process will be complete and will ship as per plan in the next week or so.. This would only affect new orders after today as we will not be taking any for the remainder of the summer months unless its a really unique opportunity…
-all sets that are complete and have yet to sell (or be posted up) will be posted up in the next week or so. they will be for immediate sale and can ship within 2-3 days of the order. We have wheels in 5×100, 5×112, 5×114, 5×120, and 4×100 available for immediate sale and will post up in the coming days
-Starting today, we will be permanently limiting the number of redrilled vintage wheel sets from now on. Too much of the current work fell in that category and we like to keep our work spread out across many platforms. Too much of the same thing is never fun, and we like variety. We here as designers also like to keep ahead of the current trend, not just follow trends as others do, which led to this decision.
-the main studio focus after summer will be on new products, the new forged wheel line, and some hand selected automotive projects as well as other markets altogether.. You will be seeing a lot of high quality products coming out for next season, and a couple of crazy builds for this season.

Ringtool by Reductivist
-as an example of collaborative work from the industrial design portion of our studio that has had a fun impact on our lives, here is the Ringtool project.
I personally had a blast working on the numerous design rounds and learning the ropes of bringing a small design like this to mass production with my good friend Jonathan, founder of reductivist.com. This product has had a long list of successes so far, and I figured I would give it a quick shout out while people can still purchase them from the site. Super useful for car guys needing small tools on the fly.
Do more. Carry less. Ringtool was conceived as an ultra-light solution for cyclist commuters, but its applications extend far beyond the biking community. A super compact alternative to lugging around a full size tool kit, Ringtool lives on any standard keyring, always on-hand for minor repairs or in the event of an emergency.
