PNW Components: Gen 3 Range Handlebars Come in 35mm Clamp

PNW Components’ Range Handlebar Gen 3 comes in an 800mm width and a new 35mm diameter option. As modern mountain bikes push towards a longer reach, the Range Handlebar Gen 3 prioritizes fit and comfort with 10º back sweep and 5º upsweep, and a 30mm rise means your arms and shoulders will be in a more relaxed position. These aluminum bars are wider and even with the increase in diameter, are 25grams lighter than their predecessor bars.

The Range retails for $69 from PNW Components and come in a variety of accent colors.

PNW Component’s Loam Dropper is Customizable and Retails for $199

There are a lot of dropper posts on the market, yet very few that retail for $199, and hardly any that allow for travel adjustment, or customizable color hits. The PNW Components Loam dropper does all that, allowing for up to 30mm of travel adjustment in 5mm increments. Why is that important? It ensures you get the most travel from your dropper based on your sizing. For instance, if your bike can fit a 200mm travel dropper but your resultant saddle height is 5mm too high, this allows you to lower the dropper height and still gain the full travel to your seat tube collar. On top of this nifty advancement, PNW Components offers colored collar bands, allowing you to customize a small color hit.

PNW Components Introduces the Redesigned Rainier Dropper Post with Adjustable Travel

Personally, I love the look of a dropper post, properly slammed to the seat tube. It creates a visually clean and simple aesthetic, even on very complex bikes. The problem is, most people fall between dropper sizes. For instance, you might be between a 200mm and 175mm dropper, resulting in excess post at the clamp, limiting your dropper travel. Well, PNW Components announced their new Rainier Dropper on their Instagram today. The new Rainier has adjustable travel, in 5mm increments to help gain most travel out of your dropper. Check out more information at PNW Components.

Features
-Tool-less Travel Adjust

-Travel: 125, 150, 170 or 200mm
-Diameter: 30.9 or 31.6mm (34.9 coming soon)

PNW Components $69 Coast Handlebar Comes in 480mm and 520mm

Is wider better? I’d say so! While mountain bikes have embraced the wider bar trend, there’s still a lot of resistance to wider bars on drop bar bikes. Part of that is it costs a lot to try it out. Well, with the rising popularity of wider drop bars, more and more companies are throwing their caps in the ring with the latest being PNW Components and their Coast handlebar and stem. These affordable bars offer up a new riding position for that old familiar gravel or cross bike in your stable. They come in a silver finish and are in stock now, in two widths – 480mm and 520mm – at PNW Components.

Specs:
-65mm Reach – Works with shallow drop and exaggerated flare to make switching body position an ease
-105mm Drop – Shallow Drop for when aero isn’t everything and comfort is
-20° Flare – Combo of shallow drop and 20° flare provides more wrist comfort while moving back and forth between grips and hoods

Erin’s Foldy McLobsty Rock Lobster

Reportage

Erin’s Foldy McLobsty Rock Lobster

Yesterday, we looked at Erin’s Rock Lobster during her Old Growth Classic Reportage. Is it a road bike? Or a cross bike? Or a gravel bike. I don’t know but it has v-brakes, a 2x Ultegra drivetrain, and a dropper post in a field of ultralight, carbon, disc brake, chubby tire bikes like that Ibis Hakka MX I reviewed. Erin’s had this bike for a while and I felt like she did a great job explaining it in yesterday’s post, so read on for a refresh.
