FLETCHER, N.C. (BRAIN) — Cane Creek Cycling Components has entered a long-term agreement with eecycleworks, a California company that produces a handful of components, including a lightweight caliper road brake, called the eebrake.
Cane Creek will first take over the production, marketing, sales and distribution of the eebrake line, and the companies will collaborate on future component development, they said.
Eecycleworks co-founder Craig Edwards was originally known in the industry for his “Sweet Wings” cranks in the mid 1990s.
“Eecycleworks is very excited to partner with Cane Creek,” said Edwards. “The synergy created will be a huge plus for eecycleworks and eecycleworks customers in all areas including manufacturing, product quality, marketing, sales and service.”
Edwards said he will remain intimately involved with the eebrakes series and work closely with the Cane Creek team to develop new products.
Cane Creek will kick off this partnership by introducing eebrakes in their booth (B1-202) at this week’s Eurobike Show. The brakes sell for $315 each and are available in regular and direct-mount options. Cane Creek plans to start shipping eecycleworks products from its North Carolina facility in November.
