Video: What is ‘Cross?

11.06.2013 //

What is cyclocross? While that question may sound a bit “entry-level,” there’s still some quality footage and content in this video, which goes to the right source for information: Belgium. The video also taps into the minds of the best racers to have lined up at a cyclocross race, which might just be the most brutal thing you can do with an hour of your time each winter. Check it out.

For most of us, bikes aren’t a necessity. They may feel that way–a day without riding can feel like torture–but most of us don’t rely on a bike to feed our family, to bring home a paycheck or to simply survive. It’s different in more desperate corners of the world.

First Impressions: 2014 Marin Attack Trail XT8

11.04.2013 //

If you’ve been paying attention to all the Interbike/Eurobike/Outerbike posts this season, you’ve probably seen a hell of a lot of bandwidth sacrificed in praise of the Marin Bicycle’s new mountain bikes, which, and I’m going to be blunt here, is a big change.

Tested: Durango Pucker 650b Ti SS

11.03.2013 //

The pucker Ti is a blast to ride. At less than 23 pounds, the singlespeed rewards out-of-the-saddle efforts with astonishing speed. our bike was equipped with 34×20 gearing, which might be too low for the über-fit, but was perfect wintertime gearing in the mountains.

With their sticker price of just $70, Xpedo’s new Spry flat pedals are one of the more affordable, lightweight flat pedals on the market. We’ve been bashing on these a bit and have some thoughts on both the pros and cons of the wallet-friendly pedal.

Dirty Words: Go Belgian or Go Home!

11.01.2013 //

In the same way that urban American kids played basketball because schoolyards were their escape from a dead-end life, Belgian kids raced their heavy bikes on those greasy roads, “crossing” over fences and ditches as a short-cut to the cold barns and dim factories where they could find work.

The Bakery: My Road to Rampage

10.31.2013 //

Take away the helicopter, the film crews, and the whole production of Red Bull Rampage and you would still have athletes hucking huge lines. While the sport may need the elevation of a corporate partnership to gain mass appeal and the sponsorships that come with it, the riders are here because they love what they do.

Hardtails, mud, singletrack, epic, all-day pedal tests…if this video doesn’t make you want to head out for a ride, you have no heart at all.
