BikeYoke REVIVE 160 dropper postA new player in the dropper post game...

BikeYoke is a company located in Munich, Germany. They've created a completely new design of dropper posts, the BikeYoke REVIVE 160 dropper seatpost. The hydraulic circuit is a very stable closed system and basically maintenance free.

DESIGN SPECS:

  1. No external air will go inside the post's hydraulic circuit, since it is charged with a higher pressure than its surroundings.
  2. No oil will go out (or at least very very little oil over the course of a long time), because of very stable sealing.
  3. The hydraulic system can be reset to “new” via the unique “REVIVE-valving” system.

We have the REVIVE 160 - 31.6 in stock. MSRP is $397.50.

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.
