Well, the big news this week was the announcement of the RockShox Bluto along with arrival of several bikes designed to be used with front suspension. We’ll have a first hand look at it REALLY soon.
In other front suspension news I (Sven) have one of the Snozocchi forks from Brad at Eriksen due to arrive today and our long-term 11Nine suspension fork is back as well. Do I smell a front fork shoot out? Fortunately, my Schlick APe was designed for just such a task. And over a year ago! With our trails coming out of winter hibernation a good time is sure to be had by all! Well, at least me!
Another thing the coming of the warmer weather brings is a thinning out of fat-bike specific events. Still time to check out the East Side Epic in Leadville, CO though. Also, if you have an event coming up that features a fat-bike class within another event, get it on our fat-bike event calendar. We don’t put our fat-bikes away for the summer, neither should you!
