Team aluminum CX frame for a Nor-Cal team rider

 There's a good chance that you'll see this frame if you go to any bay area races this fall. This is a disc brake model but not for thru-axle wheels. With the rider being barely over 100 lbs. there's no need for that kind of strength in the wheels.
 The team is sponsored by a number of companies and the King headset and Enve fork are a couple of the important components provided to this rider for the 2015 CX season.

Aluminum 29er with new XT group

 This single track special is built with Mavic Crossmax SL wheels , a Fox 100 mm fork and the newest XT group. The whole package weighs in at 24 lb. 6 oz. -Not bad for a pretty heavy duty frame.
 This rider has been riding full suspension for years but around here the single track is more fun without all the squish. There's only a few trails where it is really needed and the rest of the riding here is more about steering than suspension.
