SUN RINGLE MTX 29 featured at DIRT 100 for 2011 products!

“DIRT 100 2011: SUN RINGLE MTX 29” By Author: intern

We don’t know what it is about these rims that makes them quite so good, but the simple fact is that they are. Actually it’s a combination of all sorts of things. Firstly at 29mm wide they’re a good width for pretty much any size tyre, secondly at 570g they’re far from heavy, and finally as long as they’re not built up by a monkey they can survive an incredible amount of abuse.

You can happily use these as part of a hard hitting set of trail wheels, but on the other hand they’ve proved strong enough to be used as a lightweight set of DH race rims. Oh yeah, there is a twenty quid cheaper ‘pinned’ version, but unless the bailiffs are about to knock on the door we’d go for these welded ones every time.

Fixed Gears invades Answer Rove DJ Stem & ProTAPER® 720 AM!

Initial Reaction: Answer Rove DJ Stem & ProTAPER® 720 AM

Got awesome package from Answer ( @Answerproducts ) today. Remember the Rove DJ stem I posted about earlier? Well that came, along with a pair of Answer’s new bars, the ProTAPER® 720 AM. Such an improvement over my previous cockpit. The bars feel a lot lighter and they look a lot lighter too. The tapers on these, along with the slight 4° up sweep, makes them look like a 25.4 bar. They’re not though. 31.8 all the way. Paired with the Rove DJ stem’s wide clamp bite, it’s one solid bar / stem combo.

Check out some more shots below…

50mm length. The nice thing about the stem is the actual stem body is thin, allowing even a short stem to maintain a nice proportion on the bike.


61mm wide faceplate, giving it a super stiff bite.


Clean machining too! The stem comes in a pewter finish, with 4 faceplate color options.


I chose black. Super stoked on this setup. Thanks to the guys at Answer for hooking it up!

Exclusively available at Tionghin, in store now!
