Totem: Skin to Win

12.29.2013 //

Compared to the haberdashery of modern downhilling, Greg ‘HB’ Herbold’s roughly 20-year old, sublimated, spandex skinsuit is about as alien as a vegan in a steakhouse. But for a few years during mountain biking’s early history, a costume like this could turn a talented mortal into a hero.

Chapter 4 of Cold Rolled explores the development of Marquette’s Snow Bike Route–a 15-mile stretch of perfectly-packed singletrack amidst the deep snow. If you never thought you needed a snowmobile and a welding torch, this video might seed a lust for those very things. Very cool.

Tested: Turner Burner Expert

12.25.2013 //

It’s clear that Turner set out to make a 27.5-inch-wheeled bike that was uniquely its own with the new Burner. the high-speed stability and outstanding cornering prowess are standout ride features. Knowing that the bike climbs as well as it descends makes it an ideal candidate for someone looking for a no-nonsense, do-it-all trail bike.

The weekend we spent there was a record breaker with 700 riders purchasing lift tickets in just one day! Coming back with a vengeance is an understatement.
