Renee Hutchens on the Land for RockShox

Photo by Eric Arce

There’s been a lot of discussions on what “land” means here on this website and today our friend Renee Hutchens shared her thoughts at the RockShox website. The article is a great read and I encourage everyone to give it a read.

“Kinship, or K’é reflects a deep relationship with each other spanning generations upon generations. This is the seed of our resilience. The fact that I am here today speaks to this — it means my family, like every Indigenous family, did whatever they could to survive hundreds of years of violence, forced removal, forced assimilation, genocide, destruction of our cultures, identities, our land, and natural resources. Despite all of this they ensured my existence today. But the violence of colonial thinking never ended. We live in a country that continues to render us invisible. Indigenous erasure is our modern form of racism that continues to inflict trauma on top of historical trauma. Therefore, I’m drawn to go to a place where I am seen and heard, where I can heal, re(connect) with my identity, culture, and traditions.

This place is on the land.”

The New RockShox Reverb Stealth Gets a Port at the Post Head

Your RockShox Reverb dropper is going to need service at some point and with the new Stealth Reverb design it’s easier than ever. With RockShox’s new Reverb Stealth port design, you can now remove the saddle, depress the valve, compress the post and reset. The result is the air is channeled back into the chamber leaving the oil where it is supposed to be. The Reverb Stealth post body is now shorter too. Head on over to RockShox to see more.

My favorite fork got an upgrade by the fine folks at RockShox. The new and improved Pike now features a lighter chassis, with a 150g reduction, a Charger 2 damper with OneLoc remote compatibility, a new DebonAir spring and will fit boosted, plus sized 27.5″ tires (up to 2.8″). Expect these to hit retail shelves this month with an MSRP of $875 – $1,000. See more at SRAM.

You may or may not remember this project. RockShox reached out to a handful of artists back in 2011 to design decal sets for their forks. Geoff was one of them, bringing his playful typography and animals to the design palette. You can see the other artwork over at PinkBike.

Great find, Tracko!
