Ride the Divide is one of the most difficult MTB endurance races in the continental US, so when Ty from Golden Saddle Cyclery decided that he was going to participate, he looked to Santa Barbara’s Stinner Frameworks to design a no nonsense 29′r. Utilizing a Rohloff Speedhub 14-speed internal belt drive, this bike will require zero maintenance for the extent of the ride. Tubeless wheels, XTR hydraulic disc brakes, SON hub, E3 lamp and Thomson Ti bars add just amount of show-worthiness to the bike. We rode our new mountain bikes yesterday and I am beyond pumped for Ty. This is one sick ride!

Hey, it’s been over 10 years since I had a mountain bike and I couldn’t resist… More on this later. For now, I’m having too much fun in the snow.
It’s no secret that 29′rs have more fun and now Surly‘s just released a 29+ line, starting with the Krampus. Also available are the Knard 29×3 tires and a 50mm wide rim called the Rabbit Hole. Who needs your grandpa’s wheel size when you can bowl over woodland creatures and stumps with a 29+ rig?
