SRAM Eagle XX1 expected to arrive sometime in August!
The Fox Transfer Hydraulic, Infinite Adjust Seatpost is cable actuated with tool-free quick disconnect and is available with internal or external routing options. Comes in either 30.9 or 31.6 diameter sizes with either 4, 5 or 6 inch drop options. Low lever force and great modulation make it easy to regulate return speed and make small height adjustments. There are two remote options for handlebar mounting: either left side below bar (for 1x mounting) or L/R on bar (for 2x or 3x mounting).
Shown here is the Fox Transfer Factory top level seatpost, with Kashima coating.

Why Oval Chainrings Work (from absoluteBLACK website):
Because a rider does not produce power evenly through a pedal stroke; they maximize the part of the stroke where power is produced and minimize resistance where it isn't. Oval rings make the spin cycle a lot smoother and are easier on legs while climbing. Believe it (or not), but a round chainring doesn't transfer torque to your rear wheel as smoothly as an Oval one. You will actually feel your stroke to be more "round" with an Oval shape than with a round chainring. With oval rings rear tire traction improves greatly on loose and slippery terrain. Smoother power delivery to your rear wheel means that you will be able to maintain better, constant cadence; get less stress on the joints (knees) and therefore be able to keep certain level of effort for longer.
Building on the lightest, most versatile production carbon crankset on the planet, the Race Face Next SL G4 couples Race Face CINCH compatibility with an elegant arm profile that seamlessly integrates the crank arm with the new Next Direct Mount composite chainring. G4 is lighter weight (430g – 32T Direct Mount) with improved lateral chainring stiffness; a critical advantage when the chain is under tension at extreme angles, like those resulting from a 1x system setup.
Available in 170mm and 175mm lengths - MSRP is $549.99.
The RockShox Reverb Stealth seatpost may look the same on the outside, but the internals have been completely redesigned for even better performance, improved stiffness, and enhanced reliability. Now available in even more size and travel options, including a whopping 170mm travel length.
Pictured here is a 170mm travel, 480mm length, 30.9 diameter. Stock is available in our Tustin location.
The new DT Swiss 350 Boost Rear Hubs with XD Driver have an enhanced flange distance. This has significant advantages: a flatter spoke angle and improved symmetry allow building a stiffer and stronger wheel, always an advantage, but especially for larger diameter wheels in challenging terrain.
This tough and burly pedal is made from a nylon composite material that offers plenty of platform width and keeps the weight down. The Chester offers the same grip as traditional alloy pedals, with 8 replaceable steel pins per side and a slim, concave design. They have a 100% serviceable bearing and bushing system. Great pedal for a wide range of riders at a great pricepoint.
Here are some brand new and improved Schwalbe Nobby Nic tire models that we haven't had in the shop until now. Great for all mountain riding, more resistant to punctures, and tubeless setup is easier than ever.
