Our trip went down in early February in beautiful Nelson, New Zealand, and the surrounding areas of the Nelson Tasman district. We planned a little backcountry adventure with a few of my friends on our Juliana bikes. We rode sick tracks, and ended big days with beers & delicious food. Perfection. Bliss. After a few days of NZ backcountry at its best, we were exhausted, exhilarated and knackered. And, we were content. Happy, satisfied, and loving our lives.

After a stressfull week on the GXC circuit, the guys needed some down time out in St Tropez. Sun, sand and Bryceland's backside was the perfect cure, before heading home for National Champs...

It's an advertisement--but a pretty kick ass advertisement all the same. Okay, the shot of some dude's butt--that I could live without--but the line "Maybe you think it's all Red Bulls and high-fives, but it's not." got my attention. Nice writing. Good footage. If only more adverts were made like this, I might actually watch them. Nice work from the people at Backcountry.com
Sure, this isn’t a mountain-bike mag but rather a road-bike publication. But with cyclocross (and hunting) season coming up, the good folks at Giro have seen fit to offer a limited edition, camouflage Empire cycling shoe that’s been specially constructed with a lugged EC90 sole like the one found on the top-o’-the-line Giro Code mountain […]
By Nicole Formosa When Scott’s first Addict hit the market in 2007, it quickly made a name for itself as the lightest production road-racing frameset on the market. By the time Scott took it out of the line four years later, the competition had caught up, and Scott’s engineers had turned their attention to aero. […]

Photo: Chris Milliman We here at Paved are sad to see that Serotta bicycles will soon be shutting its doors. Ben Serotta made the bikes for the 7-Eleven team—the first American team to race the Tour de France—and for years Serotta has been one of the most respected small bicycle brands in the business. We […]
