2013 Rose The Jester and Beef Cake FR – two badass playbikes at opposite ends of the travel spectrum

How much travel is too much travel? Who cares what the self-proclaimed experts say – just ride whatever puts a dirty great big grin on your face! Germany’s Rose Bikes have got both ends of the spectrum covered with The Jester and the Beef Cake FR. One’s got 120mm of bounce, the other 180-200mm but they both look like they should be a riot to ride, with bombproof-looking construction, plush Fox suspension and some quality finishing kit. Check them out below, and let us know which one floats your boat!
