Racing has never been an afterthought for you. It would be better described as your life choice.

While the other forks in RockShox's lineup see a change to the new Charger 2. 1, RockShox engineers determined that the traditional Charger 2 performs better than the new damper in cross-country applications. This means a firmer climb, and lockout setting, for powering up punchy steep sections without losing a watt of power you're putting down. I...

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.
