Ragley first launched about a year ago by none other than Richard Shedfire, and now they are releasing the new Ragley TD-1 29er frame for 2010. For 2010 the Ragley TD-1 29er is aimed towards a 440mm fork, which is different since most 29 inch mountain bikes use a 470 to 490mm fork. By using a shorter fork, this drops the handlebars by 30 – 50mm, allowing a better racing position.

The Ragley Ragley TD-1 29er 2010 frame is built by a familiar name Lynskey Performance, while each frame is manufactured in the USA. Featuring sliding dropouts, horizontal oval top tube, and curved seat tube. Presented is a aluminum model, but a retail friendly steel version will also release to accommodate your budget. Pre orders can now be placed from Ragley retailers, and holds a retail price of about $1,800 USD.

New York is no stranger when it comes to hosting cycling events. From the 1890s to present, it has seen its share of unforgettable races. This year’s Tour de New York aims to be a benchmark for the future tours of the city.

The Tour de New York began in 2004 as a one-day criterium. In 2007, it progressed to become a UCI event. 2008 saw the Tour blossom into a three-day race with nearly 60,000 people witnessing the occasion. However, due to the global economic crisis, the organizers had to suspend the Tour until now.

2010 Tour de New York will start on August 7 in Rochester then a time trial at Lake Ontario on August 8. August 9-12 will be for the four road stages with an 80 mile to 115 mile course. The routes are still being finalized but will most likely end in New York’s west side.

To top their 2007 innovation of Zipp-inspired deep carbon rim aero wheels, SRAM decided to release a three-model range of road wheels with aluminum rims. This 2010 item is designed especially for rides that have a typically standard depth and minimal spoke counts of 18 front/20 rear.

If without the rim tape and skewers, the range wheel weighs about 1620g. It has a tangent non-drive side rear spoke arrangement that is similar with other brands. However, SRAM uses a 27mm deep rim with a traditional cross section. This is good for fast training since it comes out to be like an entry-level wheel.

This new range has the S27 Al Comp. This meant cartridge bearing hubs, the all-radial front/radial drive side and bladed Sapim CX spokes with brass nipples.

The S30 Al Sprint has the Sapim CX-Sprint spokes, internal aluminum nipples and black mirror finish. The S30 Al Race also comes with bladed…

The 2010 version of the Dorado is Manitou’s upgraded DH fork, available in 29′er and 26′er. The 2010 Manitou Dorado Pro is highlighted for its 7050 aluminum legs and uses the same quality internals as with the Dorado MRD carbon version.

More than your regular DH fork, the 2010 Manitou Dorado Pro can now be used for park, free-ride and big mountain runs. It has a unique hydraulic bottoming ramp-up with TPC+ damping and a plush top-out.

Other improvements on the fork are the two-chamber low pressure air spring which makes set-up easy to do and allows optimal fork performance. Removing the valve at the bottom of the leg for tuning the air spring pressure, this can now be done by a valve at the top of the fork. The two chambers functions to equalize the pressure when a shock pump is attached to it.

When it comes to mount hardware, the fork…
