TESTING... TESTING... SANCTION

sanction Leif just popped over to the Spoke office to pick up our latest test bike for issue 35 of Spoke. It's a GT Sanction 1.0 w/HammerSchmidt. sanction-hammer

HammerSchmidt isn't new to the Spoke test crew but this is the first bike we've seen that comes spec'd with it out of the box.

sanction-front-end

The front end is well appointed with Syncros carbon bars, a Thomson stem, Avid Elixir brakes and Fox 36 Talas FIT RLC forks (adjustable 110, 130-160mm travel).

sanction-12x135

A nice sturdy 12 x 135 maxle keeps the rear end nice and stiff.

And then the whole package rolls on a Gravity wheelset and Kenda Nevegals.
