2018 Kona Rove NRB DLThe bike that can do it all.

Part of Kona's adventure lineup of bikes, the 2018 Kona Rove NRB DL was truly created to do everything well: CX races, touring, bike packing, gravel riding, even commuting. It draws from Kona's renowned cyclocross history and frame geometry, but the Rove has a slightly lower bottom bracket to provide a bit more stability and a slightly wider tire clearance.

The internally routed frame is made of Kona 6061 butted aluminum and is paired to Kona’s CX full carbon flat-mount disc fork. It uses a mixture of Shimano Ultegra and 105 for the groupset. The 2×11 drivetrain pairs a 50/34 front to 11×32 in the rear, giving plenty of gear options for many different needs. The hydraulic brakes–with centerlock front and rear 160mm rotors–provide robust stopping power. Comes stock with 650x47c WTB Horizon Road Plus TCS tires, mounted on WTB Asym i23 TCS rims which come tubeless ready. In fact, this bike can handle tire widths up to 650B 2.1 or 700x28.

Off-road capabilities with on-road perks, like dual water bottle cage mounts, rack and fender mounts. MSRP is $2099.

Ryders Eyewear at The Path Bike ShopDurable glasses, just in time for summer and all your outdoor pursuits.

All of Ryders Eyewear come with a 3-year warranty and 50% discount for a crash replacement. Options for Standard or antiFOG lenses with various models.

Short story about the durability of these glasses... shop owner Tani and Geoff were fishing, and Tani had set his Ryder glasses down on a rock. Soon thereafter, Geoff slipped and landed palm first on the glasses...thought they had to be beyond destroyed, but that wasn't the case. They completely held their shape, and aside from a few scratches they are good to go! They have also been stepped on, and again have kept their shape and have not broken.

Prices range between $39-$89 depending on the model and lenses.
