This is mis-advertised

Purchased the yellow Reba. Called to confirm this is a new in box Rockshox fork before ordering and was told it was. Nowhere on the website does it indicate this is new without packaging or an OEM item. Fork arrived today but is apparently "new takeoff/OEM" and was literally just the fork thrown in an oversized cardboard box with zero padding or packing materials, only a thin, ripped plastic wrapper. Luckily, it appears to not be damaged. Called Competitive Cyclist to discuss this situation and was told "well...sorry but you got a good deal...so nothing we can do...unless you want to return it" I've purchased quite a bit over the past few years from CC and Backcountry but this lack of customer service on this order has me looking elsewhere going forward. Apparently it is a 2017 model fork and does carry the full 2 year warranty per Competitive Cyclist. Will install it as I do need a fork ASAP and hopefully it operate correctly! Wanted to let other buyers know what you will actually receive so set your expectations accordingly.

Now on both my bikes!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a great bar for the money! I had never really been a Race Face user. I purchased a fat bike earlier this year and it came with a few Race Face components. I was very impressed with the cranks and so I started looking at their offerings for carbon fiber handlebars. My first stop was always Back Country and I found this NEXT bar for a great price. I've been very impressed with the bar. The dimensions and dampening properties work great and it also looks great to boot! I recently picked up another one of these to install on my Specialized Stumpjumper as well. The matte black goes perfectly with that frame and the increased width of this bar improved my handling substantially over the 685mm bar I had on there.
I've opted to run both of NEXT bars with ESI Chunky grips. I'd recommend these grips for any carbon handlebars as they are silicone and easy to install and remove/re-use.
Save some money and grab one of these for a great carbon bar for XC and trail riding.
