Tested: Trek Fuel EX 9.8 29

10.25.2013 //

The EX performs brilliantly on everyday singletrack—the kind of trails you want to ride for hours upon hours. Its handling traits are balanced and nimble, thanks in part to its low bottom bracket and ample standover. The efficient DRCV suspension platform and the 27.5-pound weight make the EX 9.8 feel like a no-holds-barred race whippet while on the pedals.

VIdeo: The Salvadorian Way

10.25.2013 //

By Mike Gamble We take the bicycle for granted. We have great days, we have not so great days. For a Salvadorian, the bicycle is life. For some, a necessity, for others an escape. Not just for the mind, but for the soul of its user. Through the dreams of a dedicated group of riders, […]

Exclusive: 2013 Heavy Pedal Tour–Vail

10.11.2013 //

Day two, we set out nice and early. We were ready for a fresh new start. First run up the mountain and Trey’s derailleur cable snapped. But he didn’t care he was going to ride it anyways. Then, half way down the mountain, the spring in his derailleur broke, causing his chain to bounce violently. We needed to fix it super quick…

Dirty Words: A Simple Twist of Fate

10.11.2013 //

The world has gone mad. At least it seems that way on this gray and wet afternoon. On the macro level, our society is unraveling. At the personal level, two amazing cyclists I admired and aspired to be like have met tragedy, both as a result of a simple twist of fate.

The Bakery: Off the Bike at Outerbike

10.10.2013 //

Outerbike is a holy grail for bike enthusiasts to access all the bikes they have been dreaming about, in a location that’s a destination all on its own.

09.27.2013 //

Keystone aims to please. No matter what your style of bike-park riding, there’s something for everyone. For us, it was hard to decide which trail we wanted to hit up after our warm up lap. The choices are gnar, or jumps with gnar, or drops with jumps and gnar. It’s hard to decide right? So, we committed ourselves to ride it all!

Everyone has a friend like Jessica; whenever you are together chaos and adventure ensue. One minute you are meeting up for a drink and the next thing you know you are passed out on an inflatable dolphin in Mexico.

Exclusive: The Rooster Of Marcelo

09.24.2013 //

The thousands of bunkers that contained the internet’s servers fell silent, the whir of the digital processing stopped forever. Laptops, home computers, network hard drives and cell phones all became obsolete. All just empty plastic boxes that did nothing, contained nothing, provided nothing. The glass screens that had been caressed, stroked and fawned over no longer reflected back the hopes and desires of the bearers. Instead, nothing.

Exclusive: The Pitch

09.20.2013 //

Oh, anyone can crank out a superlight, super-adjustable, carbon-fiber dream bike, but it takes a special someone to invent the world’s smallest, folding electric scooter. We roamed the floors of Interbike and gave the more daring entrepreneurs 30 seconds to pitch their products to the world. Get ready for the weird.
