While wandering the Outdoor Demo we spotted an oasis of shade and beer at the Hayes tent, and while under that tent we also spotted a new big-power brake from the Hayes boy's. The Stroker Ace is a Four piston brake for those of you looking for even more power. The same riders interested in the Ace's may want to check out Sun-Ringle's ADD Lite wheelet, a tough and light set of wheels that can lighten up your overweight bike!

Trek had a massive presence at the Outdoor Demo, not only with some big tents and a vending machine but also a huge number of demo bikes for the curious to try.

We pulled some strings and bypassed the line to get ourselves a closer look at their top end rig, the Remedy 9.
