Tested: Specialized Roval Traverse SL 29

09.04.2014

The Roval Traverse SL 29s are lighter than a set of wagon wheels have a right to be, they don’t feature crazy, proprietary components that require outlandish tools to fix, they stay true surprisingly well, the hub technology is well proven and while the price tag might make you see red, you could easily spend almost twice this much on a set of carbon hoops that aren’t any lighter or appreciably “better” in any concrete way.

Heavy Pedal Tour 2014 – You can’t go home again

09.03.2014

Galen and I are in Medora to take on the Maah Daah Hey 100 endurance mountain bike race. People sometimes laugh when I tell them about mountain biking in North Dakota, but the joke is on them. The Maah Daah Hey Trail covers over 12,000 feet of elevation gain in 105 miles, with almost equal amounts of ascending and descending, and roughly 90 percent of that is true singletrack.

Video: “Trail Ninja,” Ep. 17

09.02.2014

What do these riders do when snow blocks their trail? They ride the scariest trail ever seen, instead. In "Trail Ninja," Ep. 17, Dan Milner and the crew head to Italy to ride one of the most rewarding trails on the planet: a 50-kilometer mountain bike ride from the mountains to the Mediterranean coast. Starting high in the Ligurian Alps, the Trail Ninja finds that danger is around every turn when snow forces him to take a deviation from the trail in wolf country.

Video: “This is Peaty,” Season 3, Episode 5

09.02.2014

The fifth episode of this season takes a look into the lives of downhill legend Steve Peat and the 2014 UCI World Cup Champion Josh "Ratboy" Bryceland, as they venture across the Atlantic to North American. In wild British fashion, they get slapstick crazy during their "summer Christmas" and dive deep into the mental challenges of tackling some of the fastest tracks on the circuit. Windham was the last North American stop and the times across the line were mere seconds apart, but when Ratboy came across, he showed why he's now number one.

The Web Monkey Speaks: Bikes are simple

09.01.2014

My gasoline orgy reminded me of why I love bikes so much. In a way, bikes are everything cars are not. Sure, both are modes of transportation, but bikes are simple and just how wonderful that fact is cannot be overstated. With bikes, there are no puking carburetors, no slipping clutches, no faulty oxygen sensors, no ominous grinding noises in your differential... Simple is beautiful.

Video: “OH SHEEEP”

Video: The story of Red Bull Joyride 2014

Heading into the 2014 event, the rider who has really made the event his own, Brandon Semenuk, was staring down the barrel of perhaps the biggest ever threat to his monopoly of the spoils.

Finding the “tribe” in a foreign land

08.29.2014

Thomas Humpage, a professional photographer based in Chamonix, France, had invited me along to go downhilling with his friends for the day. He’d also lent me his 160-millimeter travel, full-suspension enduro bike, as it was decided that my hardtail 29er was probably not up to the rigors of descending 7,500 feet down Pila mountain with a bunch of really fast Chamoniards on downhill bikes. I think that also made him generally responsible for ensuring I didn’t embarrass everyone by showing up in my stretchy shorts.

Video: Trans Savoie Day 4

08.29.2014

Another epic day on the Trans Savoie tested riders in classic ski terrain, and slopes and steeps that rolled along under ominous peaks and ridges in the Three Valleys.
