First Look: 2015 Felt bikes

Felt is mostly known for its skinny tire bikes, but the California-based brand likes playing in the dirt as well. Last year Felt showed significant improvements to its mountain lineup so when the invite for the annual product release at the company’s Irvine headquarters hit my inbox I was curious to see what 2015 would yield.

Bike Test: Ibis Tranny

10.27.2009

“This scale has got to be wrong,” I thought. Sure, this Ibis Tranny was built as a singlespeed, but it’s got a 4-inch-travel fork with a through-axle, and it certainly looks the part of a brawler…. But 20 pounds, complete? Any doubts were erased the first time I rode the Tranny—it felt every bit of […]

Bike Test: Bionicon Golden Willow SC I

10.20.2009

There are Autobots, there are Decepticons, and then there is bike maker Bionicon. While the company’s Golden Willow may lack heavy artillery or the ability to morph into a giant talking robot, several months of riding this bike proved that it’s no less of a transformer. The basic Bionicon concept aims to emulate the natural […]

Bike Test: Mongoose Pinn’R Apprentice

10.13.2009

A LOT HAS CHANGED SINCE THAT FAMOUS CHROME MONGOOSE BMX bike dropped into Helltrack in the ’80s cult classic RAD. Fastforward to today, and the mean-looking, matte-black, 7.5-inch Mongoose Pinn’R Apprentice is a good indication of just how much times have changed. A late melt to the snowpack this season provided the Pinn’R with a […]

Bike Test: Kona Minxy

10.06.2009

THE WOMEN’S MINXY IS A FREERIDE-LITE DIRT LOVER THAT HAS been tweaked from the layout of her big brother, the Stinky Six, to deliver a ride that anyone can appreciate, regardless of chromosome combinations. The bike’s custom graphics are just as sexy as her name, and her subtle but strong femininity made the Minxy a […]

Bike Test: Jamis Dakar XCT 2

09.30.2009

THE DAKAR XCT IS JAMIS’ TAKE ON THE 5-INCH, GO-ANYWHERE, do-anything, Downieville-style-of-riding bike. Jamis claims it descends as well as its bigger brother, the 6-inch XAM, and pedals like the company’s cross-country race bikes. The first of those claims proved valid—descending was this bike’s strongest asset. The XCT’s slackish 67.5-degree head angle helped the Jamis […]

Preview: Santa Cruz Blur LTC

04.15.2009

Santa Cruz has announced it is adding a second carbon fiber bike to its collection—the Blur LTC. The new bike keeps its 140 millimeters of travel, but still manages to lose a full “LB” to bring it down to a fighting weight of 5.6 pounds with a RockShox Monarch shock. Even with the weight loss, […]

Niner W.F.O. 9

02.09.2009

An all-mountain bike with 29-inch wheels? No, they didn’t…. Yup, they did, its Niner's W.F.O. 9.

Jamis Dakar XAM II

02.09.2009

Jamis made some welcomed revisions to its popular XAM platform for 2010.

Santa Cruz Nomad

02.09.2009

Santa Cruz's Nomad is the original gangster of the all-mountain movement, but still a formidable option in this ever-growing category.

Mongoose Khyber Super

02.09.2009

Thanks to its white-as-snow color scheme, the 2010 Mongoose Khyber Super stood out among our all-mountain test-bikes line up.

Yeti AS-R 7

02.09.2009

At 32 pounds, the AS-R 7 was one of the lightest aluminum all-mountain bikes in the test.

Giant Reign X0

02.09.2009

Giant's Reign X received a facelift this year. We thought it looked fine just how it was, but you know how these bikes are these days.

Titus El Guapo

02.03.2009

The Titus El Guapo comes armed with a 1.5-inch headtube, ISCG05 tabs and 155 millimeters of rear-wheel travel.

Specialized Enduro SL Pro Carbon

01.25.2009

Boasting a FACT carbon front triangle with M5 aluminum rear triangle, the Enduro SL Pro offers 160-millimeters of travel in a ridiculously lightweight package.
