@filthyanimal. Fundamentally, the utility of a road-like fit would be a logical starting point because of orthogonal power transfer, leg extension while seated, etc., but I think for mountain bikers there should be a few more considerations because of ... more »

In the 90s, DH racers used to have super high bars. makes sense because it's more comfortable and you can get farther back on steeps. Then in the aughts (early 2000s) everyone went to low or even no rise bars. I want to say mainly because it looked cool ... more »

$140 shipped Take-off from a Niner WFO, which it was tuned specifically for. I will include the bushings that go into the ends, so if you have a Niner it will plug n play. Will still work beautifully on a number of bikes. Very little use on this Rock

Did anyone happen to catch the drama with the expert men results? what was all the hoopla about? one guy calling another guy a cheater and arguments ensuing.

It is as it should be...two Legends and a Ratboy.

Bring Peaty this time if you make the journey to Port Angeles this spring - I guarantee that hill would be twice as loud as the last two years combined.

WOW. really really stunning shots. love the composition AND proper use of a 35mm lens. the graininess gives the pictures an old timey war hero vibe to them.

Take note, bike manufacturers - this is what a press release is supposed to look like. Roskopp comes off like a cool and down-to-earth bike brand/team owner, and I'm sure that's the case in reality too. It's like working at a good company where no one is out to get someone. just ride, work, and everything will fall into place.
