Riding the Zerode G-1 37

Mikey Haderer runs through the Zerode G-1 downhill bike, featuring a gearbox design. The frameset uses a Shimano Alfine 8-speed commuter hub and trigger shifter in its high-pivot design. Is gear box the future? If they look like this, I sure hope so!

64.5-degree head angle

14-inch bottom bracket height

1.5-inch head tube (AngleSet compatible)
