I am sure you all have seen this, but yesterday, JHK and Heather won the US National Marathon Championships in Breckenridge, CO aboard 29ers.

JHK won on his Superfly 100 and Heather on her Superfly hardtail. JHK's bike was outfitted with Sram XX, Rock Shox Reba and Bontrager XR1 tires while Heather's was Sram X.0 with a 2x9 set up (36/24 c-ring combo) Reba (80mm travel) and Bontrager XR1 tires.

Both of them broke the course records- JHK by 10 minutes. No news to anyone on here, but who says a 5'4" woman cannot ride a 29er! :D

Congrates to both of them:thumbsup:

That's such a wicked looking bike.

If you ever need a 200lb+ test rider for your XL size, I'm here....:)

Padre's Nightmare

Boy, that set up would sure piss Padre off. Check it out, a negative rise stem and a riser bar.

What's the world coming to?

Very Cool! Can we expect to see JHK in a SRAM ad soon? :D

And how about you MattO? Did you turn the pedals in anger this weekend? ;)
You know it! Shep, the other mech and I were a team- Subaru-Gary Fisher Team Mechanics Team;) That one pic above is me with the big smile and pumped fist not celebrating my run, but hearing JHK and HI had won. :D

XR1's have been very popular for sure. We have used the 29-3 2.0" at a bunch of races though. I ran 29-3 2.0" front and rear yesterday. Shep ran the 29-3 2.25 front and ACX rear.

We have some new tires we are testing that will probably be run at XC Nat's if all works out. Very light and fast! :eek:

Matto, congrats on the team's wins first of all. :thumbsup:

- My question is : Are the new Fly's and Fly 100's OCLV this year? Please say "Yes" as that IMO would be the best thing Fish/Trek could do for the brand.
