2014 RockShox Pike RCT3 Suspension Forks

RockShox PIKE RCT3 27.5We really like the changes to the new and improved RockShox PIKE RCT3 suspension forks.

Lighter weight for sure, and the new 'Charger' damper is a sealed but serviceable damper that employs an expanding bladder in order to compensate for shaft discplacement. The extruded bladder design is insanely durable, resists damping change during extended downhills and has virtually zero pressure offset for small bump sensitivity.

2014 RockShox Pike Details:

  • Intended use: trail/all-mountain 
  • Travel: 140 - 160mm (29'': 140 - 160mm, 27.5/26”: 150 - 160mm)
  • Dual Position Air, Solo Air
  • New 'Charger' damper (sealed, serviceable)
  • External adjustments: rebound, low-speed compression, pedal assist (depending on model)
  • Dual Position Air w/ 30mm travel adjustment (optional)
  • 35mm stanchions w/ black hard anodizing 
  • Redesigned 15mm Maxle Lite axle (no 20mm option)
  • Steerer: taper only
  • Wheel sizes: 26'', 27.5'', 29''

Here's what we've currently got in stock at the Tustin shop:

  • RCT3 Solo Air 29er 140mm
  • RCT3 2 Position Air 29er 150mm

2014 Santa Cruz Solo 275

 2014 Santa Cruz Solo Carbon 27.5Everyone's been buzzing about the new 2014 Santa Cruz Solo 27.5" trail bike, and we were lucky to get them in last week. A later release that may have gotten a little less attention than the much hyped all-mountain Santa Cruz Bronson 27.5" that was released this past April, the new Santa Cruz Solo is definitely not a bike to be overlooked.

The low bottom bracket height, shorter chainstays and 125mm of progressive VPP suspension give the Solo a snappy, nimble, ride. 68 degree head angle adds climbing agility, and a 5lb carbon frame helps to keep the weight down.

So far we have this large carbon SPX build, but more sizes of complete bikes and frames are expected soon. Shown here in matte black and green finish.

Yeti SB95 Carbon 29er

Yeti SB95 Carbon 29er at The Path Bike Shop in Tustin, CAHere's a fantastic new release from Yeti Cycles, the Yeti SB95 C 29er.

This bike carries the same progressive geometry, short chain stays, and 5-inch travel as its 29er predecessor, the SB95, but wraps it all in a light, stiff high-mod carbon frame.

This 29er is the culmination of more than six years of work and testing by Yeti on their SB platform. There’s the revolutionary Switch Technology suspension (which received rave reviews on the SB-95) for snappy pedaling and predictable bump absorption; the slack, low-slung geometry that keeps the bike attached to the trail; and a new carbon frame that makes the whole package lighter and livelier.

The size small pictured here weighs in at 28 lbs with pedals. MSRP is $5800.
