Last year’s launch of the Ibis Ripley was wildly anticipated, with intense speculation over whether the 29-inch-wheeled bike would measure up to its smaller-wheeled counterparts.

Review: Specialized Air Tool UHP

02.06.2014 //

I got this imbued sense of quality the first time I picked up the Specialized UHP Air Tool. Constructed from cast aluminum, it has a solid feel, a big 350 PSI gauge and a burly oil-resistant hose attached to a beautiful two-stage valve. This clever new valve allows you to evacuate the air from the hose—but not the shock—before removing the pump. The air bleed works especially well at making finite pressure adjustments.

2014 Bible of Bike Tests Roundtable Reels: Norco Sight Carbon LE FS

02.03.2014 //

The Norco Sight Carbon LE FS is a versatile, well-rounded bike that is perfectly suited for technical terrain with plenty of vert. So why did it have our testers splitting hairs over relatively inconsequential things such as the choice of grips? Are we really such assholes? Or is the bike just that good?
