It’s Day 2 of our 12 Days of Christmas Gift Guide and the RockSox Reverb tops our list today, and with good reason.

Dirty Words: Don’t Look Back, They Might Be Gaining on You.

12.13.2013 //

On Sunday, I’m turning 60. Anyone who doesn’t look back on their 60th birthday is probably already dead. What really surprised me about this milestone is that I have now been riding bikes for more than 53 years. No wonder my legs hurt.

It was the chance of a lifetime–Brayden Barrett-Hay had won the wild card competition and found himself the first rider on the first day at Redbull Joyride. Then it all went wrong. A crash on his first trick knocked him out for a day and led to serious brain trauma. Months after the crash, Barrett-Hay is determined to come back from it all.

A pilfered IV-bag, a clothespin and a tube sock; these were the raw ingredients for the first hydration pack–a product every mountain biker has since used at one time or another. This is the story of how one man’s attempt to fend off heat exhaustion in a west Texas century led to a device which has saved everyone’s bacon at one time or another.

Enduro is demanding on riders and bikes in the same way: it requires a unique combination of all-out riding and reliability over long stages, multiple days of racing and ultimately a long season.

Squamish offers a varied array of trails. From its manicured groomer-esque Half and Full Nelson trails, to old school rooty, rocky, primarily fall line trails such as Powersmart. This is what makes the town such a renowned area for mountain biking.

Video: A Game of “TCX” with Giant’s Honches

12.09.2013 //

It all starts out with a little trash talking: Who’s the “fittest” guy on the Giant squad? Who has the best skills? Obviously Adam Craig, Carl Decker and Josh Johnson don’t agree, so it all boils down to a game of “TCX” and some good, old-fashioned cyclocross racing. The stakes are high: Loser has to clean the other guy’s bathroom.
