2010 Answer Bar && Pedal are available @ Tiong Hin

Above are the new Pro Taper 780 DH handlebars.  Coming in at 780mm wide and 335g, they use Answer’s patented ProTaper technology to create a strong, durable bar from 7050 series aluminum alloy.  It’s offered in two rises, 12.7mm and 25.4mm, and three colors: black, gold and red.

The Answer ProTaper 720 AM is designed for all-mountain trail riding use and is available in two taller rises, 25.4mm and 50.8mm.  

 

The Rove FR pedals felt great underfoot on the trails. With 10 pins and a wide, concave, low profile (16mm) platform, these pedals felt solid when the going got rough. Unlike some other pedals I’ve used, the pins on the Roves didn’t look like they would make mince meat of my legs if a foot slipped off. Still, the slightly lower profile aluminum pins offered good grip on my shoes.

Another cool thing about the hex pins is that you can change them with a socket wrench rather than an allen key. On most pedals the pins are nothing more than long allen screws that are inserted into the pedal which allows the screws to back out easily on the trail. The Rove FR pedal pins have a positive “lock” onto the pedal to avoid this situation.

The 6061 aluminum body can take more abuse compared to other magnesium bodies and won’t show damage as easily. The combination of a cartridge bearing and DU bushing promise to keep these pedas spinning smoothly for a long time.
