News: A Nod to the Man Who Changed It All

11.19.2013 //

We may mock the Sting-Ray today–the goofy Ape Hanger bars, the banana seats, the requisite tassles and flower basket… This bike, however, laid the foundation for BMX and mountain biking. Here’s a nod of respect to the children’s chopper and the man who created it.

Video: “Hills of Home” Teaser

11.16.2013 //

This might be the first teaser I’ve seen for a cross-country video in…I dunno, forever and then some, really. The production value on “Hills of Home” looks impressive; it makes watching a U23 racer in Lycra (Pirmin Kuss) shredding Schwarzwald singletrack on his hardtail look downright cool, whirch frankly, is no small feat. Viva the variety.

Tested: Specialized S-Works Enduro 29er

11.15.2013 //

I really hate 29ers. I think they are for old men to ride when they’re not playing golf. I’m sure that’s why I got the assignment to test the highly anticipated 29-inch Specialized S-Works Enduro Carbon….

Dirty Words: Take Me Home, Unpaved Roads

11.15.2013 //

November is one of the best times for riding gravel roads here in Virginia. The nearby Horse Country has a long history of unpaved roads that are great for riding a nice horse with a comfortable trot or a comfortable bike with a smooth grind over pea gravel. The bike has an advantage because it doesn’t eat expensive winter hay and grain.

Long-Term Test: Syntace W35 MX Wheelset

11.14.2013 //

There are wide rims. There are very wide rims. And then there are the Syntace W35 MXs. With a sprawling internal width of 28.5 millimeters, these lightweight, all-mountain rims are a good 4 millimeters wider than what you’ll find on many downhill hoops.

Video: Wink Grant–Insight

11.13.2013 //

Wink’s definitely quiet, and it might be cliché to say this, but he lets his riding do the talking. He’s quietly established himself as one of the most stylish riders in mountain biking. Contests seem to go a long way towards determining your reputation on the bike these days, but Wink’s managed to do this without the exposure that a big slope-style result brings.
