Kevin Breitenbach Interview
Sarma has got a set of wheels coming for us to test with their Naran 100 mm Carbon Rims laced to their Sarma 190/135 hubs – that’s on the heels of their announcement about the first Carbon 29+ rim earlier this week. http://sarmanbikes.com
Stan’s came out with their Hugo rim this week that we saw way back at Interbike – Bob from Stan’s sent us some info that they just released at Press Camp that we put up on the site yesterday! They are rumored to be available in October.
Niner introduced a Steel 29+ bike called the ROS 9+
Does anyone else think that we need a wider variety of 29+ tires?? Well… they’re coming.
