The folks at Easton will host PB's 'Ask Us Anything' on Monday, March 11 starting at 9:30 AM Pacific time. Easton was the powerhouse factory that first showed the world how to manipulate aluminum tubes - a game-changing process resulted in handlebars and framesets with strength-to-weight numbers that defied conventional engineering at the time. Later, Easton brought its composite technology to cycling, manufacturing the first trustworthy carbon components designed for hard-charging dirt riders. Presently, Easton's innovative designs, advanced manufacturing processes and industry-standard testing protocols have been applied to a wide range of cockpit and drivetrain components, and elite-level wheels for both mountain bike and road applications. So take advantage of Easton's unparalleled component manufacturing experience and fire away. Ask them anything.
Easton's team of wheel-builders, designer/engineers and product managers are ready to talk about any aspect of their products, from on-dirt performance to how they are made.

How 'Ask Us Anything' Works
Type your question into the 'Comments' box at the bottom of this page and Easton's staff will answer it below. Feel free to direct your question to a specific person. Every question and answer will be published for all to see, so you may want to scan previous comments to see if the information that you seek has already been posted.
Easton tests a handlebar for fatigue strength. The machine
flexes it thousands of times more than it will see in actual use.
• Try to stay on point. Ask one question at a time and follow your question with a brief context about the situation, for example: add your weight, riding style and your bike after a question about handlebar strength.
• Try to keep your questions to about 100 words.
• Ask Us Anything is a service to PB readers who are seeking helpful information, not a forum to broadcast opinions or grievances. If you do have a negative issue that you want to ask about, no worries, just keep your complaints relevant and in the context of a question so that it can be addressed in a productive manner.
• Use comment propping to up-vote questions you care about, and down-vote the losers.
