03.25.2014 //

The names spill out, a landslide of exotic words, places glimpsed only in photos or maps, sent via email with descriptions that conjure mental images of tires biting dirt and the dappled strobe of green and sunlight. These are the tip of the iceberg, the first easily recalled names on a long list of places and trails I didn’t ride.

03.09.2014 //

A Dozen years ago, Bike’s photo editor David Reddick, his blushing new bride Michelle, and myself spent a few weeks traveling around New Zealand in a middlin’ Winnebago scale RV. It was a great trip, aided on one hand by the convenience of driving around in a house, and also marred somewhat by that very same thing. On that trip, I realized that my irrational lifelong hatred of RVs wasn’t that irrational at all, and that they do, in fact, totally suck.

2014 Bible of Bike Tests Roundtable Reels: BMC Trailfox TF01 29

03.07.2014 //

Although we’ve never piloted a monster truck, the feeling can’t be far off from riding the TF01 29. It’ll jump a set of 20 cars no problem, but making that turn at the end of the run can prove difficult. I felt invincible aboard the BMC until I needed it to change directions, at which point I felt, well, slightly less so.
