In 1988, Bruce Gordon made a limited batch of 1000 Joe Murray-designed Rock ‘n Road tyres…700×43 knobby rings of rubber that “were before 29ers were 29ers.” Gordon has decided to remake the tires, and they now include a folding bead, and are made for him by Panaracer in Japan.
As reviewed in the current issue of Singletrack; the Salsa Horsethief. It’s a full-suspension 29in trail bike that offers up 120mm of rear travel, and can run 120-140mm forks. While it’s made for all-day romps on the rough stuff and can climb very well, Salsa tells us the bike also shines when it’s pointed downhill.
