There’s a reason you see Feedback Sports’ Pro Elite red-anodized beauty holding bikes at races all over the world—they are damn good. Simple as that. I’ve been using mine almost daily for four years now and I’m still impressed by just how well it does its job.

Video: A Glimpse of Giant’s Latest Quiver Killer

12.18.2013 //

Giant’s new Trance Advanced SX 27.5 is a bit of a quiver killer. The lightweight, 5.5-inch travel bike is incredibly capable. All day grunts in the outback? You bet. Punishing descents? Sure. Fast-paced cross-country rides? Absolutely. Here’s a quick pick at a bike that impressed us during our testing for the Bible of Bike Tests, in Sedona, Arizona.

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.

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…

Smack.

Damn.

Gawdammit!

Smack.

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.
