Otso Waheela C gets early release of new Slate & Gray, all forks move…

first_imgBy now, you may be getting familiar with the Otso features, particularly their Tuning Chip dropout system. The three position adjustable dropout alters the chainstay length by up to 20 mm, while it also raises and lowers the BB to compensate for the change in ride height for different tires. At its longest setting, the frame can run up to 29 x 2.1″ tires or 700c x 53mm.Otso previously shipped each bike with a fork that included a 15mm thru axle. That eventually shifted to riders having the option of choosing either a 15mm or 12mm axle. Now, based on customer feedback and choices, all bikes will only be shipped with a 12mm thru axle. It seems that in the road and gravel world, 12mm has become the preferred standard up front. If you’ve been shopping for a new bike, then you already know that the increased demand has made things pretty scarce. That’s part of the reason why Otso is releasing the fourth new color of their awesome Waheela C all road / gravel / dropbar MTB a bit early. Originally slated for a 2021 release, the new color is available now – just in time for fall exploring. The frames are constructed using EPS molded carbon fiber and include a number of mounting options, internal cable routing including dropper post compatibility (options for 60mm or 100mm travel in their bike builder), and a 68mm threaded BSA bottom bracket.The Matte Slate / Gray, joins six other colors that are partially available depending on the frame size required. Framesets start at $2,200 and complete bikes start at $3,600, with plenty of spec options available through the custom bike configurator.otsocycles.comlast_img read more

Vols’ spring game format affected by injuries

first_imgVolsVols KNOXVILLE – The injuries limiting Tennessee throughout spring practice will affect the format of Saturday’s Orange and White Game.Tennessee is short on players at certain positions, most notably running back and the defensive line. Because of the lack of depth, Vols coach Butch Jones has said Saturday’s exhibition at Neyland Stadium will be more of a “spring event” than a spring game. The game pits the offense against the defense, with each side earning points for notable accomplishments.Tennessee will work out in front of more than 100 former Vols, a group that is expected to include Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.Five storylines to follow in Vols’ spring gameThe game is expected to include two 15-minute quarters and two 12-minute quarters with a running clock throughout all four periods. Although there will be some 11-on-11 scrimmaging, Jones is including other activities such as a quarterback challenge and one-on-one matchups between linemen or between receivers and defensive backs.“We’re still going to go out there and compete just like every other day,” offensive tackle Kyler Kerbyson said. “It’s going to be more like a practice than a scrimmage. We compete every day during that, too. The one-on-one drills, the situational stuff we’re going to do is going to be very competitive.”Tennessee has been forced to get creative because of injured players.Before spring practice began, Jones announced nine players would be sidelined and several others would have only limited contact work as they recover from injuries. Since the start of spring practice, injuries have knocked out defensive back Rashaan Gaulden, wide receiver Cody Blanc and defensive end Corey Vereen. Alvin Kamara is the only healthy scholarship running back, and even he missed a week with a thigh bruise.“The guys who are limited, they’re still out there coaching us younger guys and making sure we all understand what we’re doing,” linebacker Cortez McDowell said. “They’re like extra coaches for us.”last_img read more
