Always Summer Somewhere

10.30.2014 //

We always dream about journeys to places like this, but for most mortals these reveries rarely become a reality. When it was decided that a group of us would spend seven days on the roads and trails of New Zealand’s South Island, hovering largely around the Craigieburn and then Nelson area, most of us were in disbelief until the moment we landed on Kiwi soil.

Here’s GT’s Bernardo Cruz racing the 2014 Taxco Urban DH race in Mexico. He’s riding ridiculously fast, flying past people’s living rooms, patios and experiencing near-misses all the way.

Cane Creek Product Safety Notice

10.29.2014 //

At Cane Creek, we strive to make best-in-class products that provide exceptional performance and rider experience. During the initial production of the DBinline rear shock, we did not live up to this promise. We have determined that certain DBinline shocks manufactured from May 23, 2014 through September 15, 2014 have graphics that incorrectly identify the adjustment directions for High Speed Rebound (HSR) damping. We are extremely sorry for the confusion this may have caused and have corrected this mistake

BIKE TEST: Yeti SB5C

10.29.2014 //

IT’S BEEN ONLY A TAD MORE THAN THREE YEARS SINCE YETI introduced its ‘Switch Technology’ suspension platform on its ‘SB’ (Super Bike) line of full-suspension rigs, drawing accolades from longtime Yeti lovers while also converting new members to the tribe. We at Bike were early advocates of the company’s flagship Switch Technology bike–the 6-inch-travel, 26-inch-wheeled SB-66–and we reveled in the countless hours of trail time spent aboard that capable all-rounder.

Swiss Army Knife

10.27.2014 //

THE FOURTH-BIGGEST ROAD STAGE RACE IN THE WORLD, THE Tour de Suisse, is one of two warm-ups for the Tour de France. Its grueling mountain passes prepare the world’s best roadies for the steep stages of the TDF. This year’s start list included 2012 TDF winner Bradley Wiggins, time-trialist Fabian Cancellara, sprinters like Peter Sagan and Mark Cavendish and one mountain biker with a sweet tail- whip. In only his second professional road race, Swiss cross-country racer Nino Schurter held his own, launching an attack, sprinting to two Top-10 finishes and earning Stage 3’s most active rider award.

Urban Undercover

10.24.2014 //

A FEW MINUTES AFTER I LEAN MY BIKE AGAINST THE FLYING BISCUIT, a legendary Atlanta breakfast joint, one guy tells me how he witnessed a shooting on this same ride earlier in the month. Before that, it was an armed robbery. “Guy pulled his gun out and shot it in the air,” a skinny rider with lights on his helmet and handlebars says.
