The editor of MBA has written an extremely warm write up about the Extra Lite parts maker Sergio Riva in the November issue (Perhaps this is old news?).

cunningham really emphasized how SR develops parts to be light and functional rather then focusing on marketing hype. He details some specific features of the RC-1 frame and rear der pulleys.

Cunningham continues to blast Specialized and Trek for seemingly having the know how from road bikes to make a lw mtb but still EL's complete bikes are substantially lighter then theirs. Then, if that weren't enough he praises Scott's and Cannondale's efforts in lw mtbs bikes.

So here's a rare bravo to MBA for pointing out a great manufacturer taking on great risks by giving us stupid nutty lw parts and frames!
