Hauswald is a spark of motivational energy, and has an infectious enthusiasm for her role that borders on zealotry. “I wanted to turn more teenagers on to the thrill, challenge and satisfaction of riding singletrack and being outdoors. I also wanted to help teenage girls gain confidence in their bodies, and ultimately, their lives, and I believe the bike is the perfect vehicle for that.”

Reviewed: Specialized Lodown Glove

04.04.2014

Preview: Michelin Wild Mud Advanced

04.03.2014

The new Michelin Wild Mud comes in a new, super soft rubber compound (MAGI-X) that should work wonders on wet roots and is supported by a burly, reinforced casing (there’s an additional ply running from one bead to the other) that should help fend off gashes in rocky conditions. This is a mud tire that can take some abuse and has some decent width to it. It's not your average wet-weather tread.

Sketch: Cascades Crusader

04.03.2014

Leavenworth, where the granite spires of the North Cascades roll into the plains of Eastern Washington, has been the scene of a decades-long fight between mountain bikers and the US Forest Service.

No matter how excited we get about the next best widget, in the end it doesn’t really matter what we are riding, just that we are. A massive amount of work goes into creating this gear guide, but do we actually need any of this stuff? No. I’m looking at all the white space on the page below my blinking cursor, wondering what to write, because none of it matters. In fact, you should stop reading this immediately and…run to your shop and demand they put this group on your bike right away.

In addition to kangaroos and snakes we found Graves busy cultivating a cycling mecca in Toowoomba, with dozens of dedicated mountain bike trails, a booming bike club and a local race series.

Where Are They Now? Kyle Strait

04.01.2014

To the mountain-bike community, Kyle Strait needs no introduction. On the bike, he was an absolute child prodigy, and entered his first Rampage when he was just a young teenager.

The Web Monkey Speaks: It’s Still Not About the Bike

03.31.2014

We mountain bikers spend an inordinate—no, make that a ridiculous—amount of time obsessing about gear. But none of it actually matters. Here’s the truth—and it’s a simple matter of math—a shitty bike plus an awesome trail equals an amazing day of riding.
