I know some of you have vans, or 4x4s or pickup trucks that you camp and recreate from. While plenty of people rely on external vehicle racks, some swear by internal storage systems, which usually require the front wheel to be removed. Well, what happens to those wheels usually is they slide around and end up with dinged disc brakes. Lindarets looks to solve this with their Thru Axle Wheel Mount. Yep. Simplicity as a result of a specific need. Check out more at Lindarets.

With a geometry tuned for a 140mm or 150mm fork and build kits ranging from $2995 to $3595 for a complete, the Chumba Rastro long travel 27.5+ hardtail looks to be a strong competitor for those looking at buying a new hardtail. Chumba makes all their frames outside of Austin, Texas and works with Fox and Shimano components. These complete prices reflect various modes: Trail, Enduro, and All-Trail but you can request a build spec of your own and even buy just the frame. Bottom line is; the build options are endless on a more than capable frame.
Check out more specs at Chumba and I hope to get to review one of these bikes!
