Sunline V1, GREAT bars...they come in permuation of 2 lengths (711 and 745mm) with choice of rise (19mm or 38mm)

I have the long/hi-rise version and they rock though I think the Chromag OS bars (730mm x 25mm rise) have a better feel and are a bit lighter if that matters

and nice Iron Mtn pics felchaholic...chunky!

They look good, but can you two finger brake with these sort of bars?

2 finger braking is a state of mind, you can achieve this with any bar, just be sure not to listen to the 1 finger evangelists like AquAHOLEic

Enel:

That looks like quality chunk!!! It's trippy to look at that topography, and space on the idea of it being an ancient sea bed, gazillions of years ago...now turned sideways. That 60 grit granite is griptastic, eh?

The grip is amazing. Better even than sandstone IMO. It doesn't even get that bad when wet.

As far as the sea floor thing, Granite is volcanic in origin. All these rocks are essentially cooled magma that got pushed up, had the overlying stuff wash away, and have then weathered for 1/4 billion years. They will be here long after I am gone. The amazing thing is to see photos from the "cowboy and indian", and railroad days 100 years ago, and the rocks are essentially unchanged in the back ground.

Are 29ers really better than a deeper travel FS 26er with meaty tires in the chunk? I know 29ers roll over little stuffer better, but I just don't have enough time on one in the chunk. Those videos make it look easy.

are you suggesting that some of those rocks are as old as Aqua?
