We like surprising people with their cover shots, but when we can’t do it ourselves we put someone else up to the task. In this case, the photographer himself, Bruno Long surprised his friend and rider in the photo, Selim.

The Fluid is built around an alloy 6061 frame and utilizes the Norco Advanced Ride Technology (A.R.T.) suspension platform. The main idea is to incorporate an increased rearward axle path and fine-tune the pivot locations specific to the bike’s intended use. A tapered steerer tube and tidy external cable routing with dropper-post provision round out the frame.

We got another look at Magura’s eLect electronic suspension system at this week’s camp in Sedona, Arizona. The system relies on 3D Auto Ride Sensors in the fork and rear shock to automatically toggle the suspension between open and locked out, with a handlebar-mounted wireless remote for switching between manual and auto modes.

IT ISN’T ABOUT MARK SUMMERS. NOTHING IS. NOTHING EVER is. Everything Mark Summers does is about other people. And within five minutes of meeting him, he’s helping me carry my bike into the building. Then Mark ditches me for an 8-year-old who is struggling to fill his tires with air.
