Interbike: World Champions’ Bikes

And you thought we’d run out of stuff from Interbike. We nearly didn’t see these bikes as they were only on the SRAM stand for a day, but we were tipped off to track them down. Danny Hart’s world championship winning Giant and Jaroslav Kulhavy’s Specialized. Here are some pics for you…

It's had a bit of a jetwash...

 

Glory indeed!

 

 

You know you've made it when... Dirty Dans eh?

 

 

 

Looking slightly worn-in

 

 

 

Intriguing carbon cover over the Avid Code brakes. To keep the heat in and the crap out? Or hiding something else?

 

 

 

Truvativ's huge Boobars

 

In case he crashed his brains out and forgot his name

 

Wired-on grips in a pro-motocross style.

 

MRP's G2 chain guide

 

Ti spring. Natch.

 

And now for something completely different:

Jaroslav Kulhavy’s world championship XC race-winning Specialized Epic 29er:

 

A fast bike. Tall too!

 

Still muddy

 

That's Champery mud, that is...

 

 

 

How long is that stem? At least a finger long!

 

Not bad for the first outing of 10sp Gripshift

 

Specialized Fast Trak 2.0 tyres

 

 

 

It all looks pretty stock stuff! High end, but mostly stuff you can buy in the shops.
