Our February 1994 issue was packed with products and tech features. These are just a few of the parts and people that caught our attention then
and bring back fond memories today.
Moab super bowls: The most common observation of experienced riders on their first visit to Moab’s Slickrock is how many
clueless beginners are tackling stuff way over their heads. In 1994, it was reported that two medical evacuations took place per
day every weekend. Thank the mass media’s hyping of Moab for that one.
Rust-free: The idea behind
Syncros Mo’Power Racing
Fasteners was not to shave
weight, which they did, but to
offer hardware that didn’t rust
after months of riding in harsh
conditions. The set wasn’t cheap
Tire scope: The Machine Tech Zeroweld stem allowed
a rider to sight down on his front tire if he wanted to,
although that is not the way we would coach anyone
to ride a bike. Yes, the stem design was pretty. No, we
did not find it to work very well because of poor clamping performance and flex issues.
