Team rider Andrew Taylor
must be a popular guy because Gravity
has done up a signature line of components in bright neon that can't be missed. Included in the selection is a Gravity Light stem, bar, and even a seatpost. Inside you can check out his day-glo parts for yourself, as well as listen to the audio to learn more.Read on...Gravity Light Andrew Taylor Signature Components
Andrew's Gravity Light bar features the same 710 mm width as the standard version, but with a neon flavoring for good measure. The black version comes in three different width and rise combos, but Andrew's green model will only be available in his preferred low 25 mm rise. Just as on the stem and post, you'll find Andrew's actual signature laid down on the product. Every time you pick one of these signature components, A.T. will get a kickback straight from Gravity.
If you are going to run a neon bar, why not a neon stem? This is the new Gravity Light stem dressed up with Andrew's colors and will be available in both 45 and 65 mm lengths. The previous Gravity Light stem was CNC'd which took quite a long time, but also used up too much material. The model pictured here is manufactured using a 3D forging technique - massive amounts of pressure are used to bring it to a nearly finished state, with it only needing to be cleaned up a bit and sent off to get colors done.
Gravity Light post, Andrew Taylor edition. Besides sporting Andrew's signature color, this post is internally butted to keep the material where it is needed and remove it where it isn't, and features a sturdy one piece mast and head as opposed to two separate pieces bonded together. Holding your seat in place is the burly looking DATA (Dual Angle Tilt Adjust) head that uses a combination of a splined rail clamp and dual clamping bolts that allows for up to 60 degrees on angle adjustment, ideal for bikes that have unusual seat tube angles. The Gravity Light Andrew Taylor post is available in 27.2 and 30.9 mm sizes. The standard black model can be had in both of those sizes, as well as 31.6 mm.
And then there was white. This is the Gravity Light hollow forged crankset that you'll see used on downhill and all-mountain machines. These burly arms spin on Gravity's MegaExo bottom bracket that can be had in both 68/73 mm and 83 mm widths.
