The Web Monkey Speaks: My “Mountain Bike Mecca”

The perfect place to ride isn’t some exotic locale, loaded with hundreds of miles of singletrack.

The place that soaks up your blood and sweat. The place where you suffer defeat one day and come back swinging the next.

Preview: Transition TransAM 29 1

06.26.2014

A hardtail is a hardtail is a hardtail, right? Nope. Sure, they all lack rear suspension, but that's where the similarity often ends. Transition's TransAM 29er is a good example--a steel-framed wagon wheeler that's less interested in winning races and entirely obsessed with making short work of technical terrain. Vive la difference.

The Web Monkey Speaks: I Can’t Quit You

06.23.2014

I’m as sentimental as a razor blade when it comes to material stuff. It’s just so much crap, really. The exception is old cycling gear. It litters every corner of my life. I haven’t ridden toe-clips since 1990, but I will gouge your eyes out before I let you walk away with my last pair of Alfredo Binda toe straps. Why? Sometimes a thing is more than just a thing--it's a reminder of what truly matters.
