With the season's end approaching, there was a fair bit of new stuff in the pits at the final round of the NORBA series at Mt Snow this weekend. Here's a quick look at some of it.

Travis Brown's 69er

Trek pro Travis Brown wheeled out this extremely unusual singlespeed with different sized wheels at Mt Snow.

Brown says he really likes the handling characteristics of mountain bikes with 700C (aka 29in) wheels, as well as the superior ability of the bigger wheels to roll over obstacles. But he prefers 26in wheels for their light weight and quicker acceleration. To get the best of both worlds, then, here's the 69er, with a 26in rear wheel and a 29in up front.
