Trek Lush Carbon | 2015 Bible of Bike Tests Roundtable Reels

01.09.2015 //

Some “women’s specific” models are actually just their male counterpart disguised in different paint and slightly different parts. Trek’s Lush earns our praise for its completely unique women’s-specific geometry. The move from 29-inch hoops down to 27.5 complements women’s geometry on paper, but how did the category-straddling Lush perform on trail?

Remy Metailler chases Forrest Riesco in Whistler

01.09.2015 //

We wouldn’t want Remy Metailler chasing us, but of course he’d probably just gap over us once the opportunity arose. Forrest Riesco can handle the heat, though, as both twist the throttle on Whistler’s bermed-out Angry Pirate trail.

Evil’s The Following | 2015 Bible of Bike Tests Roundtable Reels

01.07.2015 //

Out of 36 incredible bikes, half of our test crew picked Evil’s The Following as their favorite. Two others mentioned it as a close second, and the only guy who didn’t say anything about the bike when asked about his favorite didn’t even ride the thing. There’s no way to truly understand how remarkable The Following is without riding one yourself, something we definitely recommend doing.

Church Two

01.06.2015 //

It’s January. Winter vibes have descended upon us. The nonsensical daylight savings time has drastically limited the amount of sessions for those on the full time workweek grind. Night riding is an option but it just doesn’t provide the same sense of satisfaction. But we are lucky in North Carolina.

Make sure to watch to 2:18 for a big through-the-trees gap. In this case, Sid Slotegraaf rides some sloppy Squamish trail on his Transition Patrol.
