This photo is Tom Stengel at Desert Iron in Moab adding extra support to our custom bike rack. Why? The approach “roads” around Moab work a rack hard due to all the rocks and ledges… kinda like The Whole Enchilada for a van or our Cruiser.
The terrain we bike on is, of course, even more challenging and downright abusive on our bikes. Lesser bikes will not cut it; not for the whole season. We buy these upgraded, high-end bikes because Solfun visitors to Moab are looking for an ultimate experience. That includes the beefier, higher tech mountain bikes we enjoy. The eye candy aspect is there too.
