Omega Spare Parts
By popular demand, we now offer the Omega Brake Pad Holders for those who want an extra set. These pad holders REQUIRE that you already own a TriRig Omega brake - they are not compatible with other brakes. They work with both the Standard and the SV version of the brake. The Pad Holder Kits consist of two pad holders, two pad holder retention bolts, and two pad retention screws, all pictured.
- Omega Standard (Gen 2 and later)
- Omega SV (all versions)
Also available is the upgraded Lever kit is for the TriRig Omega Standard. This is our latest version of the rollercam brake levers, brand new for 2014. These have a new and improved shape, developed when we made the Omega SV. This shape makes them stiffer than previous versions of the levers, which results in additional braking power. The shape differences are all internal, and do not change the frontal profile of the brake (meaning the aerodynamics are unchanged). The Lever Kits consist of a new Wedge, and two levers, each of which has a roller and a stance width adjustment set screw. Again, the Lever Kits are compatible only with the Omega Standard.

- NOT compatible with the Omega SV
Every once in a while, someone will get a little too zealous with their wrench, tighten too hard and crack their front plate. For those unfortunate events, we've got you covered. The Front Plate is now available for both the Omega and the Omega SV
Salmon Pads (for alloy rims) - In our opinion, these are the very best pads for use on alloy rims, anywhere. Kool Stop's unique pad formula has been the standard by which all other pads around the world are judged. They're affordable, highly durable, and have better stopping power than anything else out there. That's why we stock a set with every TriRig Omega brake. But because they're so good, we figured you might want to order extras, so we keep them in stock for that purpose.
If you use carbon rims, we recommend SwissStop Black Prince pads, or whatever pad your rim manufacturer recommends. At this time, we are no longer stocking carbon-specific pads.
The video below describes the process for disassembling the brake to install new levers.
Alpha BTA Mount
The world's best aerobar deserves the world's best BTA mount. The Alpha BTA mount is, much like the Alpha itself, both a highly complex design but also very simple in its implementation. Read all about the design process here. The mount is made of solid, unidirectional carbon fiber. Its skeleton-like structure keeps the weight down to an amazingly-low 20g, and it requires NO mounting hardware at all. Why is that? Because it acts like a standard Alpha spacer. You just line it up in your spacer stack tower, and the Alpha's standard thru-bolts keep it in place. It has two positions for bottle placement, and can be flipped forwards or backwards, essentially giving you four different mounting options for your bottle.
The kit includes everything you need: the carbon fiber BTA mount itself, as well as two M5 screws and washers for bottles. And unlike most mounts, these screws are special; we sourced extra-short M5 screws so that they don't protrude under the BTA mount. This thing is as sleek and aerodynamic as they come.
Keep in mind, this BTA mount is ONLY compatible with the TriRig Alpha aerobar. It will not work on any other bar.
An additional benefit of the BTA mount is that it provides additional structural strength to the spacer stack of the bar. Those of you who max out the Alpha's spacer tower may notice it's not quite as stable with all 35mm of spacers as it is if you have no spacers at all. The BTA mount brings rock-solid stability back to the bar.
So, since the mount affords extra stability, we can offer additional spacers to those of you using the mount. As an optional extra with the BTA mount, you can order the extra Spacer Kit, which allows you to go up another 10mm or 20mm of stack height. The Spacer Kit includes two 10mm spacers, two 20m spacers, four 85mm thru-bolts, and four 95mm thru-bolts. This Spacer Kit can ONLY be purchased WITH the BTA Mount. It is not available separately, because as mentioned above, these extra spacers would result in an unstable tower. The extra stack height requires the BTA mount to lock the towers together and provide that stability.
TriRig Speed Concept Clamps
These clamps are compatible with the aerobars for the Trek Speed Concept 9-series, and also compatible with the 2012 Bontrager RXL aerobar, which uses the same clamping hardware.
The clamps significantly clean up the front-end hardware of the Speed Concept or Bontrager RXL aerobar, reduce the bolt count from 14 to 4, and drop over 200 grams of weight in the process. Read the whole scoop here. Each clamp starts as a one-pound block of 7075-grade aluminum (stronger than the cheaper 6061 on stock parts). They're CNC machined down to just 26 grams each, then black anodized. They will accept any standard aftermarket extension. The optional top caps shown in the video are available if desired. You must use at least 5mm of spacers beneath these clamps (some Speed Concept bars have a 5mm spacer bonded to the bar already).
A note about the top caps: as shown in the video, their intended use is to be sandwiched between the clamps and your arm cups. They are NOT REQUIRED, and the clamps will work just fine without them. Moreover, they're too thin to bear load on their own, if you attach you arm cups via the Trek P-clamps. To use them this way, you must use an M5 washer, 16mm in diameter, to support the caps. Because I don't officially endorse this use, I will not be supplying the washers. But you should be able to find something at the local hardware store pretty easily.
By ordering, you agree to be bound by the terms of this waiver.
