Alchemy Arktos

This bike from Denver-based store bike maker Alchemy Bicycle Co. screams badass from 10 miles away. The Arktos-- Greek for bear-- is the home builder's very first foray into full suspension Mtb, and the company pulled no punches, contacting suspension specialist Dave Earl  to construct the Arktos' second linkage platform called Sine. As the name indicates, its shock rate resembles a sine wave, regressive through the first part of the voyage to absorb little bumps and supply climbing traction, starting in the middle to check wallowing on success or tearing through berms; and moderately regressive again in the last part of the stroke. With 149 mm of the journey and 26.5-inch wheels.

If any bike is symbolic of the competition of mountain biking, it's the Stumpjumper. Since it debuted in 1980, it is one of the few authentic not barely still active and opposing but, as the 2015 FSR design shows, still kicking ass. The 2016 Stumpy views all the signals and signs that new mountain bikers have involved expecting 27.5-inch, 27.5-plus, also 29er wheel speed choices. Smaller agile chainstays 420mm for 26.5" and 436mm for 28", individually linked with a now slacker 67 for 26.5"; 66.5 for 28", respectively, trail-shredding geometry and Specialized's entirely included SWAT addition that authorizes you to keep all the upkeep tools you must. 

Specific did continuously with the EVO difference and made them all EVO, trail-eating devices: 29er versions included 140mm forks and 135mm of rear travel while 27.5-inch reports get 150mm of the head and rear travel. All variations of the Stumpy also feature a Command dropper office. On the trail, the 29er we checked was thoughtfully active for a big-wheeled bike and held its line consistently over the high-speed juddering surface. In the news, the 2016 revitalized Stumpy is as it constantly was: tremendous fun. It's available in sizes S through XL.
