The Oryx Disc fork is constructed completely of carbon fiber and securely anchors the hubs in place with its 15mm thru axle. This significantly stiffens up the front end and ensures that the caliper and rotor are aligned perfectly even after removing and reinstalling the front wheel. Also of note, the fork ha...

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.
