Review: Specialized Andorra Short

The ‘Big S’ is one of the industry’s most polarizing companies, but love Specialized or hate ‘em, it’s tough to argue against the product. Nearly everything that the Morgan Hill marketing machine rolls out is top-notch.

First Impressions: Racing the New Cannondale Jekyll 27.5

03.28.2014

One of the highlights of this year's Cannondale Factory Racing camp was the chance to ride the new 27.5-inch Jekyll on southern Spain's steep, rocky trails.

Preview: Ellsworth Epiphany C XC 27.5

03.27.2014

While I might quibble with the marketing language Ellsworth employs, the fact is their bike does pedal quite efficiently and that traction is good. If you live for climbs, the Epiphany C XC is your kind of bike. Fortunately, the Epiphany does more than climb--it's also a capable trailbike with razor-sharp handling.

First Impressions: Cannondale Trigger 27.5

03.26.2014

We got some quality riding time on the new Cannondale Trigger 27.5 bike in southern Spain, and we can't wait to get some more time on this promising model.

2014 Bible of Bike Tests: "The Slate Reels". Who thought marking timecodes could be so funny?

2014 Bible of Bike Tests Roundtable Reels: Trek Remedy 27.5

03.17.2014

Our longtime romance with the Trek Remedy has had highs and lows. But with the new 27.5-inch-wheeled Remedy, we've been reunited—and yes, it feels so good.

Video: The Kona Cinder Cone Time Machine

03.17.2014

It might not have gull-wing doors and a fiberglass underbody like the DeLorean from Back to the Future, but Kona's iconic Cinder Cone sure has come a long way since its inception in 1988.

Student Bike Builders Turn Up At N.A. Handmade Bicycle Show

03.16.2014

At the North American Handmade Bicycle Show this weekend (NAHBS), a handful of students wanted to show the nation’s best bike builders that they, too, were masters of the craft. The students are enrolled in Professor Steve McGuire’s bike-building class at the University of Iowa’s art school. Class enrollment is spread fairly evenly between engineering students, like graduate student Ryan Grant, and art students, such as Jim Busby. It’s believed the program is one of only two such classes in the nation.

2014 Bible of Bike Tests Roundtable Reels: Nukeproof Pulse Pro

03.13.2014

In the unthinkable event of nuclear holocaust, only the Nukeproof Pulse Pro and the cockroaches would be left standing. Well, actually, Nukeproof's speed-seeking downhill rig wouldn't be standing at all—it would be hurtling down technical terrain at mind-numbing speeds. And it would crush any cockroach that scurried into its path. Watch this video to find out why.

2014 Bible of Bike Tests Roundtable Reels: Yeti SB-75 Race

03.12.2014

After spending serious time on the new Yeti SB-75 during our Bible of Bike Tests , we were divided over how it stacks up against its 'Super Bike' siblings.

2014 Bible of Bike Tests Roundtable Reels: Intense Carbine 29

03.10.2014

The Intense Carbine 29 certainly evoked some intense feelings from the testers who put this impeccably equipped 29er through its paces in Sedona, Arizona.

2014 Bible of Bike Tests Roundtable Reels: BMC Trailfox TF01 29

03.07.2014

Although we’ve never piloted a monster truck, the feeling can’t be far off from riding the TF01 29. It’ll jump a set of 20 cars no problem, but making that turn at the end of the run can prove difficult. I felt invincible aboard the BMC until I needed it to change directions, at which point I felt, well, slightly less so.

Preview: Cannondale Scalpel 29 3

03.06.2014

For the past dozen years, Cannondale's Scalpel has lived up to its name—a razor-sharp tool that’s all about finesse and accuracy. It was also expensive. This all-aluminum version brings down the price point on racing performance.

2014 Bible of Bike Tests Roundtable Reels: Santa Cruz V10

03.04.2014

Our crew was completely divided on Santa Cruz's flagship DH machine. With back to back World Championship pedigree, and an equally impressive price tag, the biggest debate was on value. Be sure to pay attention when the testers mention fit, as this bike runs on the small side.

2014 Bible of Bike Tests Roundtable Reels: Lapierre Zesty AM 527

03.03.2014

This was one of the more controversial bikes we tested. On one hand you have a brilliant carbon chassis and on the other hand you have an inhibiting component spec and a love-it or-hate-it automated rear suspension.

Preview: Kona Hei Hei Deluxe

02.27.2014

A lot of race bikes have a fairly narrow range in which they excel. To wit, if you aren’t pinning it on a relatively buff course, some of those bikes are about as fun as donating blood. This, of course, is understandable—they are race bikes, after all, and racing generally isn’t concerned with smelling the roses: it’s about gritting your teeth and putting the hammer down and tasting blood. Fair enough. Well, the Hei Hei can do the race thing just fine, but it’s also actually fun to ride as well.

2014 Bible of Bike Tests Roundtable Reels: Specialized Epic Comp Carbon

02.26.2014

The Specialized Epic Comp Carbon made our testers want to don race bibs and give Dave Wiens and Lance Armstrong a run for their money in the Leadville 100.

2014 Bible of Bike Tests Roundtable Reels: Salsa Horsethief 2

02.24.2014

02.20.2014

Marin has made a comeback with the Mount Vision Carbon XM Pro. But how does this smartly equipped model rank against other top-of-the-line 'enduro' bikes?
