This is one of the first bikes I've seen actually go with a pretty short seat tube length for a medium size bike. Could be due to the combo s/m size but hopefully it's a trend now that dropper seatposts are longer. Thank you!

I ride a 29er. I love technological progress in bikes.

One of my favorite parts of DH...more

I was told by my bike shop that's it's $200 to swap to the charger damper on the yari.

I rode the last generation 29 for nearly 3 years and really liked that bike. That's the longest I've ever had a bike. I test rode the elite 2017 e29 at bootleg canyon and it felt great. It...more

The tube works with a finish line grease gun too, it's great for controlled application. also useful for squirting it down shift housings, which is probably my favorite use of this grease.
