As you’ll see in the video, it features an aluminum barrel, lock-on grips and bleed valve on the hose.

Saddle Drive 2012

Monday, August 6th, 2012

Saddle Drive 2012 hosted by QBP After the tune-ups and bike sales begin to calm and the heat starts to crank up (was it about a million degrees in July for you, too?), we sit ourselves down and start thinking, start getting in gear for that next and even more awesome season ahead. What’s next for 2013? We headed out to the mountains to find out.

Organized by our friends at Quality Bike Products, Saddle Drive was — once again — an event that did not disappoint.
