Hauswald is a spark of motivational energy, and has an infectious enthusiasm for her role that borders on zealotry. “I wanted to turn more teenagers on to the thrill, challenge and satisfaction of riding singletrack and being outdoors.

Reviewed: Specialized Lodown Glove

04.04.2014 //

The Lodown glove is all about getting intimate with your handlebar. In fact, Specialized’s marketing reads more like a condom wrapper with slogans like ‘second skin fit’ and ‘slip on design.’ There’s no doubt about it: This is a minimalistic glove, and I like it.

Leavenworth, where the granite spires of the North Cascades roll into the plains of Eastern Washington, has been the scene of a decades-long fight between mountain bikers and the US Forest Service.
