Kore OCD 7050 35mm Riser Bar and Repute Stem Review


The performance of the Kore OCD bar and Repute stem have been flawless over my several month-long testing period and have earned their place on my full suspension trail bike. Add to that the attractive but subtle styling, and I doubt I’ll be swapping these out anytime soon!
