It almost seemed to be too easy of an opportunity. Aaron Chase’s availability to ride new cockpit components opened up and he just happened to be in Milwaukee for the Ray’s Mountain Bike Park “Odd Couple” video contest invitational.


“Knowing he was going to be in town, we called him up to see if he’d like a tour of our factory,” said Tom Porter, Answer Products® Product Manager. “We’ve always been a fan of Aaron’s riding style and personality. He’s one of those approachable riders who also just happens to be an icon for the sport. One thing led to another and he walked out of our office with an armful of new Answer product to hang on his bike!”

Chase will be riding Answer Pro Taper Aluminum DH Bars with a one inch rise, The Rove DJ Stem, Rove FR Pedals and Answer gloves.

“I really enjoyed meeting the crew at Answer and touring their facility. The engineering capabilities that they have under their roof are some of the best I’ve seen. I am really stoked to ride the product- the pedals feel great and the bar and stem are super responsive. I put it to the test filming my video for Ray’s…It’s lightweight, stiff and can take a beating. I’m excited to represent the Answer brand.”

Aaron rode his new Answer product to 2nd place at the Ray’s Odd Couple video invitational with partner and fellow Hayes rider Mike Montgomery, who also took home the “Best Trick” award.

 Answer is nice stuff, they are local to Ray's Milwaukee with many of the employees of Hayes Group (Hayes/Answer/Sun-Ringle/Wheelsmith/Manitou) riding the park every day during the lunch hour. The corporate office is only a few miles up the road, the warehouse is few miles the other direction. The products certainly take the abuse park riding puts on them, the majority of the regulars ride Manitou Circus forks, never seen a broken one yet unlike the other brands. I have been slowly replacing stuff I break with stuff from the Hayes group and no problems so far.

I'm sure the Canadians here are sore to see RaceFace go being a Canadian company and all, think of the Hayes Group stuff as "Made Near Canada".

 Good move Aaron,maybe the best bars and stems around at the minute,what with their new Rove range of Dirt/Street components.It'll be interesting to see wheather or not the Hayes group try and pull Ace back to Manitou forks.Still a real good move on Ace's part.

 It appears as though Aaron will be putting his new gear to the test at 15,000 feet in Peru next month at the Inca Downhill DH event near Machu Picchu (formerly MegaAvalanche). Yeah, super nice guy and we are pumped to see him down here shredding. Details at www.IncaDownhill dot com
