Review: Smith Pivlock Overdrive RX

12.06.2014 //

This review is for the roughly 30 percent of us who are nearsighted. Making sure the person we’re checking out across the bar is the correct gender requires us to fumble around and take out our second set of eyes. I’m one of those people. When riding, I’ve always paired contact lenses with normal riding glasses, and over time I’ve adapted to the irritating discomforts and dry eyes that anyone who rides with contacts knows about.

Video: Fall in the Elk Mountains with Yeti

12.04.2014 //

There is a small window in the Colorado high country when the trail conditions are perfect. Some would call it fall, but nature is fickle here — often the warm days of summer push up against the sting of winter. In the high country, cold winds blow and snow dusts the peaks. Lower in the […]

Feature: Mood Swings

We can’t see anything as we pedal through downtown Hood River. It was supposed to be sunny and 75 degrees, but the weather shifted overnight and now all but the lower corner of Hood is shrouded in gray, swirling rain clouds.
“Hood is a moody bitch,” says photographer Tyler Roemer as we pedal past one of the town’s breweries, telling us that the mountain seems to create its own, erratic weather patterns. “People get caught on Hood and have to get rescued all the time.”

Seminal Force

12.03.2014 //

The old newsboy bikes were heavy and unwieldy, and they made better downhill rigs than they did cross-country machines. Also, going downhill fast fit the new sport’s all-fun, all-the-time vibe. The first real organized contest was the ‘Repack’ race, a 2-mile downhill time trial. The Craggs became Repack’s most prolific photo-documentarians. Wende also claimed the women’s record for fastest time.

Scene: Shred in the City

12.02.2014 //

The adults at the party are barbecuing and drinking beer under a tent next to the track. Isaac’s father, Rick Herman, is an avid mountain biker. He began frequenting Brooklyn Bike Park shortly after it was built last summer. Although New York City’s other four boroughs have some form of dirt track or mountain-bike trail system, this is it for Brooklyn.

Bike Test: Transition Transam 29 1

12.02.2014 //

THE TRANSAM HAS BEEN A MAINSTAY OF TRANSITION’S LINE- for some time, and while this hardtail has worn various wheel sizes over the years–it’s currently available in both 27.5- and 29-inch versions–one thing has held constant. The TransAm is a versatile rig that’s equally at home on both buff and burly singletrack.

12.01.2014 //

Words by Kristen Gross Before spending Thanksgiving feasting with friends and family, mountain bikers everywhere know it’s a good idea to get ahead of the gluttony. Social feeds are filled with the morning’s “Turkey Trots,” “Turkey Rides,” and “Cranksgivings.” And in North County, San Diego, there is the Turkey Hump. Dreamed up by friends Erik […]
