12.17.2013 //

Running (or thinking of running) a 1×10 or 1×11 drivetrain? You’ll need some kind of protection for that chainring; that’s where MRP’s lightweight All Mountain Guide (AMg) comes in handy.

There’s a lesson to be learned here–never leave a brand new bike sitting beneath the Christmas tree where Santa can find it.

Videographers often turn to drones affixed with video cameras to capture that breathtaking “eye-in-the-sky” footage. Sure, they are probably using some godawful expensive drone and camera combo, but you can still capture some of that glory for yourself without gouging your bank account too deeply. Enter the DJI Phantom.

Video: Our Process: Yeti Cycles’ Lunch Ride

12.16.2013 //

The lunch ride is a sacred thing for the employees of Yeti Cycles. To put it in their own words, “Don’t call us between 11:30 and 1:00. We won’t be here. Every day, weather permitting, we shut our doors, turn on the answering machine and head out for a ride at lunch…This daily opportunity to get out and ride is a large part of why many started working here, but at the same time, it allows us to test and refine new models, try out component spec, or just drop the boss on a climb.”

I received a few emails yesterday from people asking if I’d really bought my wife the Bruce Lee Ultimate Collection on DVD. Of course I did. The real question is: Why haven’t you? Come on. A house is hardly a home without Bruce Lee in it.

Video: Junkyard Cyclocross–Bikes, Bails and Brief Nudity

12.15.2013 //

For one day each fall, the crew at Bilenky Cycle Works transform a working junkyard into a cyclocross racecourse. Over 200 racers navigate the salvage yard — twisting chicanes around rusted cars, hopping over barriers fashioned from tires, bumpers and miscellaneous eroding auto parts.

Nothing says “I love you” like a pair of folding, stainless steel medical sheers with a carbide glass breaker and an oxygen tank wrench. Trust me on this. The Leatherman Raptor is the obvious pick for Day 3 of our 12 Days of Christmas gift giving countdown.

Video: Cold Rolled, Chapter 2–The 30-Year Winter

12.14.2013 //

Chapter Two of “Cold Rolled” explores the history and progression of winter cycling culture in Michigan’s remote Upper Peninsula. And, yes, there is a long history of riders making pump tracks in the snow and ice, snow jumping and truly riding at the height of winter, when the the place is smothered in the kind of snow that makes most mountain bikers hang their bikes up until spring.

Smack.

Dang…

Damn.

Gawdammit!

F@ck this!!!

I threw the 29er to the ground and stalked off into the woods. Godalmighty, I hated these things. Stupid-long rear centers, senile shopping cart handling up front and some kind of evil Gypsy curse against the whole breed of wagon wheelers.

It’s Day 2 of our 12 Days of Christmas Gift Guide and the RockSox Reverb tops our list today, and with good reason. Dropper posts may seem like an expensive, frilly indulgence, but they are nothing less than a necessity and the Reverb has proven one of our favorites over the years–it’s durable, consistent and just keeps on impressing us.

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.

Video: Road to Recovery

12.13.2013 //

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.

Matter: Bag to the Future

12.12.2013 //

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.

Acre’s rugged, versatile and spacious Hauser 14L hydration pack kicks off our 12 Days of Christmas Gift Guide. Why’d we pick this one: well, there’s the bomber, waterproof construction, smart system of pockets, internal tool roll and, well, check out the write-up. You’ll see: it’s fairly bad ass.

Video: Inside the Kona Process

12.12.2013 //

We’ve been covering Kona’s new Process line for what seems like ages, despite the fact that the bikes are just now making their way into the world. Why have we dropped so much ink on these things? Because it’s the best line up from Kona in years. Check out the latest video from Kona and Bike’s own Blueprint video.
