The Bakery: Off the Bike at Outerbike

10.10.2013 //

Outerbike is a holy grail for bike enthusiasts to access all the bikes they have been dreaming about, in a location that’s a destination all on its own. And when you get past the chatter of tire width and carbon frames, you find a group of people who are passionate about riding bikes and value those who actually make our industry run, the consumer.

Keystone aims to please. No matter what your style of bike-park riding, there’s something for everyone. For us, it was hard to decide which trail we wanted to hit up after our warm up lap.

The glass screens that had been caressed, stroked and fawned over no longer reflected back the hopes and desires of the bearers. Instead, nothing.

Exclusive: The Pitch

09.20.2013 //

Oh, anyone can crank out a superlight, super-adjustable, carbon-fiber dream bike, but it takes a special someone to invent the world’s smallest, folding electric scooter. We roamed the floors of Interbike and gave the more daring entrepreneurs 30 seconds to pitch their products to the world. Get ready for the weird.

We rode and wrote about the Scott Gambler 10 for the 2013 Bible Of Bike Tests, and we liked it. So much so that we needed to make sure we liked it as much as we did. So, we had one shipped up to Whistler for some bike park bashing throughout the summer. Here’s what we found after a summer of bashing about on the Gambler.

The Bakery: My Date with Rob Warner

08.23.2013 //

Rob Warner is a legend whose World Cup commentary is as worthy of your attention as the racing itself, Seriously, when was the last time you heard an announcer state, “He’s all over the place like a monkey dry-humping a football!”?
