An accident in 2013 left trials star Martyn Ashton paralyzed from the waist down, but even when he was recovering in the hospital he knew that one day he’d be back on a bike.
World Cup announcer Rob Warner sits down with Peaty and Ratboy at Soho Bikes in London to learn what went through Josh's head before he massively over jumped the last feature at World Champs, how the Syndicate team gets along with the Athertons and a whole lot more.
James Doerfling, Linden Feniak and Evan Schwartz tear up the Sunshine Coast and the Coast Gravity park on the Knolly whips.
It might seem strange for us to be putting out an issue of Bike that is largely devoted to high-alpine riding at a time when much of the Northern Hemisphere is still buried under snow. Though one could argue that it's masochistic to pine for something that seems so far away, in practice it's one of the best ways to ward off the mid-winter doldrums.
This redesigned Rift Zone with 110 millimeters of travel out back and 120 up front joins the growing number of bikes with mismatched travel.

Like VO2 max, lactate thresholds and peak training—I really couldn’t be arsed with crap like that. Then I tried Nuun and, had to admit, I was wrong.

Cam Bissett, Gareth Burgess and Kyle Thomas shred their freshly built trail on Mt. Hutt in Methven, New Zealand. They also prove that downhill, all-mountain and fatbikes can shred together quite happily!
