Bummer for Graves.

I wonder if anyone told him about the "Specialized Curse" before he cashed that check.
Maybe next year.....

Free version of this is rad, much better that Garmin connect. http://home.trainingpeaks.com/ For what it's worth, the "trails" that bikes got banned from in this dispute are not worth mentioning. All horse stuff, super small area, never even though about going there....

Too many late nights with a belly full of pain meds and Life Cycles on repeat?
Nice work.

Don't forget the angles as well. The Breezer has some dated angles thanks to Joe Breeze.
He is a good guy, but not exactly on the same page as modern trail bike geo.

This one is more slackerer which means more betterer!

"coming it at 507g with a 32t direct mount ring. This compared to the other offerings on the market is very competitive, coming in roughly 40g lighter than another key manufacturer's carbon crank"

Really?? More like 60 grams heavier than the benchmark!




Better options abound....

Many broken promises and lots of waiting for frames/parts the last time "Commecal USA" was attempted in the early 2000's. The main USA guy was a joke, talked big but disappeared when you had a problem.
They "sponsored" a local for Pro DH, he ended up having to re-pay the bike shop full retail for the frames

But now they have Lyle!
Hopefully all is better.....
