Video: Ride the Alps Teaser 2

12.02.2013 //

Not a huge leap of logic: Switzerland has mountains. Those mountains have trails. Those trails can be ridden. …This seems to be the underlying logic of the upcoming film, “Ride the Alps” and the logic sure looks pretty. Here’s a taste of it.

Tested: 2013 Scott Genius 720

12.01.2013 //

If there was ever a perfect time to use the Swiss Army-knife metaphor for a bike, it’s with the Scott Genius 720. This 650b-wheeled beast is the quintessential do-it-all trail machine. The heart of this bike is the TwinLoc system, which simultaneously
controls both the Fox 34 fork and Genius Nude2 shock.

Video: The Best Colnagos of All Time

12.01.2013 //

Few brands have had as much impact on cycling (and we’re including our skinny-tired brethren here) as Colnago. Here’s a quick tour of some of their “best” bikes–everything from a gold-plated Pope bike to crazy, futuristic models (hydraulic brakes, carbon frames and internal routing…back in the early `80s) that the cycling world is still just catching up to, decades later .

Preview: Lezyne CNC Rod & BB/Cassette Tool

11.29.2013 //

While no one ever intends to over-tighten their bottom bracket or cassette lock ring, these sorts of things happen to the best of us. Thus, I was excited to get my hands on Lezyne’s CNC-Rod, which provides the more ham-fisted amongst us with a bit of extra leverage.

Tested: Race Face Charge Leg Guards

I used to think body armor was for park rats and professional freeriders. I wouldn’t be caught in the stuff anywhere outside of a lift-accessed resort. Sporting pads on a trail ride? It was, to my way of thinking, a bit like slapping a “Tap Out” mixed martial arts bumper sticker on your pick up or, getting “No Fear” tattooed on your neck or riding a unicycle in public—all just desperate cries for attention.

Video: Mountain Biking Tuscany’s Elba Island

11.27.2013 //

The down and dirty guide to mountain biking the beautiful island of Elba, Tuscany, as seen through the squinted view of pro-photographer and mountain bike mentalist Dan Milner. In this episode: Dan and his GoPro are joined by Scott German pro-riders Holger Meyer and Karen Eller for a lesson in European harmony – with unforeseen results…

Tested: 2013 Felt Compulsion LT3

11.27.2013 //

Many bikes get tossed into the ‘enduro’ or ‘all-mountain’ category because they sport six inches of travel and yet they don’t possess the slack geometry, stout frame and burly parts to really excel on prolonged technical riding. The Compulsion LT, happily, is one bike that fits the bill. The Compulsion LT is no pretender.

Video: 12 Months, 12 Stories–the Finale

11.26.2013 //

There were high hopes for the Enduro World Series, which drew an amazing talent pool of former World Champ downhillers and cross-country strongmen. In the end, the men’s title was taken by Jerome Clementz, who was already “the guy to beat”. 2013 just kind of put the official stamp on that title.

Exclusive: Thomas Vanderham Gets “Covered” by Bike

11.25.2013 //

Getting on the cover of Bike Magazine is, to paraphrase the great Ron Burgundy, “Kind of a big deal.” For Thomas Vanderham, it’s been a good five years since his last appearance atop Bike. We decided to celebrate Vanderham’s return by heading to the North Shore and presenting him with a cover all covert-ops like. Here’s the video of how it all went down.
