Reserve, the relatively new and refreshing wheel company out of Santa Cruz, CA, has made a not so subtle splash across babbling mountain streams and stirring up the elite racing scene. Their carbon rims, for one, come with a lifetime warranty -- meaning if you break it while riding, they'll replace it, which is more than enough to earn the 25 29in Carbon Rim some attention. Second, there is no rider weight limit, freeing the nerves of so many capable racers searching for a wheel that can actually support them.Now for the carbon design, Reserve as a company is fresh but has decades of experience when it comes down to who works the magic behind the factory doors. Through diligent and intelligent design, the 25 rim is the lightest in the company's mountain lineup at 390 grams and can be built up to be less than 1,600 grams for feathery light cross-country racing goals. But the chosen carbon layup affords the lightweight rim the exceptional toughness that you'd expect from a world-class design. Spoke holes are off-set to provide even more toughness and laterally stiffness to complement boost hub spacing. And at 25mm of internal width, Reserve recommends tire widths from 40mm to a 2. 4 inch, so you'll not easily run low on tread options for your goal events.

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.
