If that sounds decidedly immoderate, well, it is--the construction process is more complicated than many framesets. Reynold uses an asymmetrical rim profile that equalizes spoke tension, resulting in a stronger wheelset that also finds a nice balance between stiffness and compliance. This translates to a ride that powers through the rocks without deflecting when you pick the wrong line and would otherwise get bucked around. Boost hubs have also become a staple around the Competitive office and the industry as a whole because of their increased responsiveness. It's something of an old story by now, but it's worth rehashing: by setting the flanges wider Reynolds (or more accurately, Industry Nine) improves the spoke bracing angle, which s...

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.
