A quick look at five new bikes from Transition, Knolly, Cannondale and Liv.
Longing for adventure and an escape from the ease of modern life, three friends set about crossing Corsica by mountain bike. Finding challenge, solitude, some rideable trails and lots of unrideable ones, they get exactly what they bargained for on.
We spend a good amount of time riding office singletrack here at Bike, but Martin Soderstrom takes things to a new level in this goofy video from inside Specialized HQ.
Alex Reveles was on hand to film Jeff Herbertson's final sessions at the Post Office.
In a stable full of huge, temperamental stallions, this bike is like the little surefooted pony that could. Built not specifically for women but for smaller riders in general, it’s got plenty of features to tempt those of us with a little less heft. What it lacks is a stripper name or related sacrifices to quality, durability or capability.
Ian Collins sent over this selection of beautiful shots from the recently destroyed post office jumps, a dirt jump spot in Aptos, CA. The legendary spot was an incubator for some of the best riders in mountain biking, and provided many with a sense community. The jumps were recently torn down to make space for development.
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.
