READER'S RIDE: Joachim's Bombtrack Hook EXT-C
Joachim Rosenlund | On the Highland Trail 550
Not only does this give more comfort, but the smaller diameter also means that Joachim benefits from a stronger and stiffer wheelset, relative to using a 700c rim. It may be a small detail, but everything adds up in the rocky terrain featured on the Highland Trail (just ask our very own Josh Ibbett about when he was forced to abandon his attempt due to snapping a frame in half!)
