The Road to Kanza: A look at the Queen of Pain’s bike

When you win big races, like, say, the Leadville 100 or the Dirty Kanza 200 or….well, you get the idea. When you put as much time in the saddle as Rebecca Rusch does, and you’re one of the most successful endurance riders, ever, you get to know your bike well, like really well. And, you put a lot of thought into the bits you hang off that frame. Here’s a look at the Queen’s setup for DK.
