Never has a bike with this much travel pedaled so well and never has such an efficient climbing bike descended so well.
The Holy Grail of mountain bikes might just be a 165mm travel trail destroyer that climbs like a cross country bike. If it is, then look no further than Slayer. Never has a bike with this much travel pedaled so well and never has such an efficient climbing bike descended so well. With Rocky Mountain pioneered StraightUp™ geometry featuring its 75 degree seat angle, the rider is always in the perfect pedaling position for maximum power on the climbs. With its 66.5 degree head tube angle and bottomless SmoothLink™ Suspension, nothing gets in Slayer's way when things get gnarly.

The HUB was established in 1992. Backcountry Outdoors was started in the 1990s. Then in 2007 the Bike shop was bought out of Backcountry Outdoors and The Hub was started. Then, in 2010 the owners of The Hub bought the rest of Backcountry Outdoors. Now the businesses have merged and expanded, and added The Pisgah Tavern with six beers on tap.
