I came home yesterday to find several care packages from the guys down at SRAM. One of these large black boxes contained the new Rock Shox Reba Team. I have been a long time fan of the Reba fork (having owned two Team models in the past), so I was extremely excited to get this one in for review.
2009 looks to be a big year for SRAM components. What hasn’t changed much for the the 2009 model year is the conventional shifting lines from SRAM. The X.7, X.9 and X.0 lines have stayed pretty much the same over this model year. Do they still meet the demands of 2009?
Wheels are a very special part of the bike. The single handily control how your bike feels on the trail and how your power is transferred to the ground. After my review of the Ellsworth Evolve and my recorded interview with Tony Ellsworth, Ellsworth sent me a set of their new $990.00 all mountain wheels to review.
For Interbike 2008, Cane Creek released some new models for their line of 110 headsets. The Zero Stack and XX (1.5 heatube) round out their line of 110′s. This is great news for 1.5″ headtube owners as the options for your application continue to grow.
I have been involved in the product development end of a new tread design out of one of the major tire manufacturers for several months now. After several sets…I can say that these are probably the best cross country tires that I have ever ridden.
Ok…I had seen these wheels posted around the net on several blogs and press releases. They are the new Tag TR3 composite wheels. Curiosity got the best of me and I emailed the guys over at Tag for more information. They sent me their new press release with their booth number. Here is what I gather from the press release descriptions.
Earlier this year, Fox and Shimano shocked the industry with the introduction of the 15mm QR TA on the Fox Talas 140 RLC. Much of the debate and most of the articles have been written about this controversial subject which begs the question.
Whenever I am doing a build, there is only one brand I go to for my seatpost and stem needs…L.H. Thomson Co.. Located in Macon, GA USA, the L.H. Thomson Company makes, by far, the best posts and stems on the market.
I am a huge fan of Hope brakes. As you can probably tell by most of the test bikes. For 2009, Hope is updating it’s line and getting rid of the Ti 6′s. This is the first sighting of the 2009 Mono Mini’s at Eurobike.
After the exclusive interview with Tony Ellsworth, I got set up with a demo set of the Aluminum All Mountain Wheels for review. They came this week and here is your first look at the set. Check out the pictures and specs in the post. This should make for a great test against the wheels that I am used to…Industry Nine’s and Chris King’s.
