Wink Grant makes killing it on a hardtail look ridiculously easy and smooth. The eight-year old commentators are an added bonus.

The Web Monkey Speaks: The Things I Used to Do

01.02.2013 //

Riding hardtails seemed like going to church and feeling good about having kneeled in a pew for an hour. My first good full suspension bike, by contrast, felt like having sex. I soon stopped riding hardtails altogether…but Klunking has me reconsidering my past.

Preview: Rocky Mountain Instinct 970

01.01.2013 //

The 29er Instinct has a lot in common with the latest Altitude. Obviously, it shares the Element and Altitude’s basic frame design. Less apparent, but just as important, the Instinct 29er also boasts “RIDE-9”: a shock mount containing two interlocking chips that enable you to significantly customize the bike’s geometry and rear suspension behavior.

Review: Scott Genius LT 20

12.26.2012 //

The Genius LT sports a “Twinlock” lever on its handlebar that, with the flick of a switch, morphs the bike from hardtail stiff, to 110-millimeter travel trail bike. Push the switch one more click and—bam—now you’re sitting atop 185 millimeters of uber-plush travel.

That’s worth repeating—hardtail to 7.3-inches of squish. This, for the record, is some crazy shit.
