Video: “Hills of Home” Teaser

11.16.2013 //

This might be the first teaser I’ve seen for a cross-country video in…I dunno, forever and then some, really. The production value on “Hills of Home” looks impressive; it makes watching a U23 racer in Lycra (Pirmin Kuss) shredding Schwarzwald singletrack on his hardtail look downright cool, whirch frankly, is no small feat. Viva the variety.

Video: “Not Bad for 10-Year Olds”

11.15.2013 //

To celebrate their decade aboard Specialized bikes, Matt Hunter and Darren Berrecloth have teamed up with legendary photographer Sterling Lorence to capture more of the iconic imagery which has established them at the top of the freeride world. Here’s a video showcasing that effort and chronicling a decade of great riding.

Tested: Specialized S-Works Enduro 29er

11.15.2013 //

I really hate 29ers. I think they are for old men to ride when they’re not playing golf. I’m sure that’s why I got the assignment to test the highly anticipated 29-inch Specialized S-Works Enduro Carbon….

Dirty Words: Take Me Home, Unpaved Roads

11.15.2013 //

November is one of the best times for riding gravel roads here in Virginia. The nearby Horse Country has a long history of unpaved roads that are great for riding a nice horse with a comfortable trot or a comfortable bike with a smooth grind over pea gravel. The bike has an advantage because it doesn’t eat expensive winter hay and grain.

Long-Term Test: Syntace W35 MX Wheelset

11.14.2013 //

There are wide rims. There are very wide rims. And then there are the Syntace W35 MXs. With a sprawling internal width of 28.5 millimeters, these lightweight, all-mountain rims are a good 4 millimeters wider than what you’ll find on many downhill hoops.

Video: Wink Grant–Insight

11.13.2013 //

Wink’s definitely quiet, and it might be cliché to say this, but he lets his riding do the talking. He’s quietly established himself as one of the most stylish riders in mountain biking. Contests seem to go a long way towards determining your reputation on the bike these days, but Wink’s managed to do this without the exposure that a big slope-style result brings.

Exclusive: 2013 Heavy Pedal Tour–Northstar (Lake Tahoe)

11.12.2013 //

Within reach of the San Francisco Bay Area, Reno, and Lake Tahoe, Northstar is a gem in the high sierras that offers boundless recreational opportunities. The Heavy Pedal Tour makes a stop in Tahoe and finds great riding and countless diversions.

11.12.2013 //

Lake Tahoe has always been an outdoor destination for the greater Bay Area, but it’s only been in the last decade that it’s also blossomed into a true mountain biking destination. The opening of the Rim Trail, greater legalization of trails around the lake and the boom at Northstar’s bike park have turned Tahoe into a legitimately great place to ride.

Tested: 2013 Rocky Mountain Altitude 790 MSL

11.11.2013 //

The 790 MSL is rocky mountain’s top-of-the-line model. It bears a complete carbon-fiber frame that Rocky says weighs just 5.1 pounds. That frame sports ISCG tabs, a 142×12 rear axle and tidy, internal cable routing. Envy-inducing components include a SRAM X0 drivetrain, Avid X0 Trail brakes, a RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper post and Kashima-coated Fox suspension. There isn’t a weak link in this chain, but at nearly $7,000, there shouldn’t be.
