The Alchemy Arktos 29 Mountain Bike Frame is the ultimate do-it-all trail weapon. Responsive yet stable, playful but controlled, the Arktos 29 strikes that perfect balance to allow you to find your limit at maximum speed. The heart of the Arktos is the Sine Suspension System, Alchemy's patented design that's plush at the start of the travel, progressive in the middle, and smooth at bottom out.

Its attention to detail, use of premium raw materials, and craftsmanship from its highly skilled artisans that lay-up and cure the carbon fiber is simply unmatched anywhere else in the industry. The frames start life as carbon pre-preg sheets that are precise...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
