Preview: Lezyne CNC Rod & BB/Cassette Tool

11.29.2013 //

While no one ever intends to over-tighten their bottom bracket or cassette lock ring, these sorts of things happen to the best of us. Thus, I was excited to get my hands on Lezyne’s CNC-Rod, which provides the more ham-fisted amongst us with a bit of extra leverage.

Tested: Race Face Charge Leg Guards

I used to think body armor was for park rats and professional freeriders. I wouldn’t be caught in the stuff anywhere outside of a lift-accessed resort. Sporting pads on a trail ride? It was, to my way of thinking, a bit like slapping a “Tap Out” mixed martial arts bumper sticker on your pick up or, getting “No Fear” tattooed on your neck or riding a unicycle in public—all just desperate cries for attention.

Tested: 2013 Felt Compulsion LT3

11.27.2013 //

Many bikes get tossed into the ‘enduro’ or ‘all-mountain’ category because they sport six inches of travel and yet they don’t possess the slack geometry, stout frame and burly parts to really excel on prolonged technical riding. The Compulsion LT, happily, is one bike that fits the bill. The Compulsion LT is no pretender.

Video: 12 Months, 12 Stories–the Finale

11.26.2013 //

There were high hopes for the Enduro World Series, which drew an amazing talent pool of former World Champ downhillers and cross-country strongmen. In the end, the men’s title was taken by Jerome Clementz, who was already “the guy to beat”. 2013 just kind of put the official stamp on that title.

Exclusive: Thomas Vanderham Gets “Covered” by Bike

11.25.2013 //

Getting on the cover of Bike Magazine is, to paraphrase the great Ron Burgundy, “Kind of a big deal.” For Thomas Vanderham, it’s been a good five years since his last appearance atop Bike. We decided to celebrate Vanderham’s return by heading to the North Shore and presenting him with a cover all covert-ops like. Here’s the video of how it all went down.

Video: 12 Months, 12 Stories–Double down

11.24.2013 //

What do we learn from this video? Jerome Clementz may be one of the fastest guys on two wheels, but even Jerome crashes at times…. and you should never let the guy cut your hair. Check out the carnage footage from the upper slopes of Mégavalanche. Holy Cr@p! There’s some truly humbling footage in this one.

What does fast look like? It looks like this helmet-cam footage captured by Specialized’s Mitch Ropelato, who put in a blazing run down the alleys and streets of the Mexican city of Taxco. While a downhill race on city streets may sound tame, that ain’t the case here.
