As promised Bryn flew down to Tasmania last month to hold up his end of the bargain, while Jasper surprised Bryn with his very own "Hi-Vis Hucker" shirt. Check the video below to see Bryn be "unlocked".

bigquotesWhat a trip! I feel honoured to have had an opportunity give something like this away. Just witnessing the look on Jasper's face when he saw the bike was worth the flight! To all those that entered and the incredible brands that supported this contest, thank you. You guys are rad!Bryn Atkinson

bigquotesI’ve never won anything before, and just hoped to make a few people laugh when entering this contest! It's not often you cross paths with someone you admire, let alone ride with them and win a bike/prize of this scale! You hope for something awesome like this to happen but when it actually does your senses and brain overload. Thanks for selecting me, I'll ride this bike with pride!Jasper Da Seymour

 Yep, a well deserved winner. Unlike me who expected to land a big prize just for clicking a mouse button everyday in December. Well done.

 That was a really nice give-away. Win well deserved!

@Norco: Now tell me, what do those two extra bolts/bearings/pipes in the swingarm do?

@Renthal: When can we buy carbon Fatbars in your signature (bronze?) color again?

Have fun!

 @mtb-journal You mean the linkage bridge assembly?

 @qreative-bicycle: I guess that is a way to call it :-) Why are there what looks like bolts (and not just carbon)?
  • 1 0
 @mtb-journal: bc the rocker isn't 1 piece, thus needs the bolts to hold it together
  • 1 0
 @mtb-journal: The rocker compressing the shock is made in 3 parts (the two side and a central bridge). The two bolts tighten one side to the central bridge to create one single block (so there are 4 bolts total). This way the rocker is easier to manufacture and it also gains more rigidity compared to the old design (which was made of 2 parts welded together in the center)

 mtb-journal Are you new to mtb? At least half the bike manufacturer use the same linkage configuration. Your name would suggest you would have a little more knowledge on mtbs then you clearly do.

 Hey cheers mate! Renthal make the “bronze” bar in alloy only. The bolts are for lateral stiffness in the link, it’s 3 pieces ????

 @mhoshal: If I look at the linkage of a Kona or a Session, the linkage is not being hold together by bolts. The only bolt that are there are actually the one moving (connection seat stay, seattube and damper). That is the case almost on everywhere. The Norco looks different (5 instead of 3 bolts).

But you tried to help, it's ok.

 @Bryn-Atkinson: I hope Renthal will bring back a limited series of bronze carbon bars, soon as they did a few years ago. Still some around in the internet.
I wish you all the best!

 @Bryn-Atkinson: I think he's talking about the Carbon Special Edition:

 @cool3: yes! I'm waiting to buy one. I still see them on the pro's bike (such as Yeti or the Norco above) so I'm hoping Renthal will re-release them.
