The more I ride my 150/140mm travel 29er, the more I’m in love with it. It truly is a magical travel pairing and while it takes a bit to keep on top of the travel, it really has become my all-day bike. Modern 150mm 29ers pedal like they’re much smaller bikes but still open up on the descents like a long-travel should. The Esker Cycles Rowl is right in this wheelhouse with a 140mm travel frame and 150mm fork, it is meant to be your all-mountain ally, in a neat and tidy package. With a 65.16º head angle, a 76º virtual seat angle, 425mm chainstay length, threaded 73mm bottom bracket, and a 420mm-490mm reach on sizes S-XL, the Rowl is ready for anything. Rowl completes at the R2 ($4999) and R3 ($5999) level are available now in limited quantities, so head on over to Esker Cycles to read all about it.
