Video: Mountain Bike BASE Jump


What's more important in life than mountain bikes, body checking your buddy while racing downhill and base-jumping with your bike? Answer: Nothing is more important.

Scene: Poetry and Motion


THE TUESDAY-NIGHT RIDE IN BROWNSVILLE, VERMONT, IS NOT your standard bro gathering. Most of the riders are old-timers with gray hair and wrinkles. They’ve built the hundreds of miles of unmapped trails that wind through the woods of Windsor, Ascutney, Brownsville and Hartland, and they’ve joined the ‘TNR’ for 20 years.

First Ride: Ibis Mojo HD3


The new Ibis Mojo HD3 represents a ground-up redesign of Ibis' famed all-mountain bike. We've been lucky enough to ride the thing. Here's the story.

Bike Test: Specialized S-Works Enduro 650B


TYPICALLY, BIKE BRANDS GET EXCITED TO SHOW US THEIR latest and greatest bikes, but Specialized seemed more stoked to show us its new Henge seat at this year’s product launch in Hood River, Oregon, than the new Enduro 650b–a bike so sick that it is impossible to not to get jazzed about it.

How To Video: Changing Disc Brake Pads


Do you know how to change your own brake pads? Watch this video from passionate rider and photographer Dan Milner and save yourself a bunch of money while improving your riding experience.

SOMBRIO to the Rescue


We’re mountain bikers, not fashionistas. Unfortunately as women who ride, and who (I’ve been told) need to wear clothes when riding, our choices are often limited to the pink, the tight, and the dreaded hibiscus print. Enter Sombrio. I got a chance to test out some of their gear in Bend, Oregon, during the Bible of Bike Tests, and I was thoroughly impressed.

VIDEO: World Bicycle Relief


This video doesn’t have anything to do with shredding singletrack, but it certainly underscores how important bikes are to people all over the world—like this schoolgirl named Tamara from Zambia.

VIDEO: Andreu Lacondeguy ‘Best of 2014′ Edit


In 2014, veteran freerider Andreu Lacondeguy finally won Red Bull Rampage. But that was only one highlight of this innovative rider's season. In this Best of 2014, filmed by his friend and fellow rider Nick Pescetto, Lacondeguy shows the world that his progression only continues to cement his spot not only at the top of podiums, but the entire sport.

Photographer Bruno Long is a master of perspective. Using his scrupulous eye, he captures nature’s abundant landscapes and mountain biking, while reminding us that we are but a small visitor in its realm. This gallery pays homage to some of his favorite outdoor spaces, and some points of view that can be gained if one just takes the time to look.

Preview: Cane Creek DB InLine


This itty-bitty Cane Creek has all the same features as their full-grown Double Barrel models. Have you seen the schematics for this shock? They look like a freaking M.C. Escher wet dream. There are an ungodly number of damping pathways squeezed into something the size of a walnut. Crazier still, it works.

Palmer’s Picks: Reynolds Blacklabel 27.5 AM Wheels


Did you know that World Cup downhill racers tune their wheel stiffness by adjusting spoke tension to suit certain courses? Optimizing wheel stiffness can improve traction, control and comfort. Reynolds has done an excellent job at this with the Blacklabel wheels. For me, they strike a great balance between providing stable, yet supple ride–something I appreciated after experiencing how harsh some of the other carbon wheels on the market can be.

VIDEO: Deity’s FUZZBOX Featuring Tyler McCaul


Get ready to wake up this morning with Tyler McCaul going absolutely mental on California trail and dirt jumps in this latest Deity edit, FUZZBOX, by Mind Spark Cinema.

Diamonds in the Dirt: Whitefish, Montana


Lydia Tanner is a dirt connoisseur who lives in her car. She spent her fall drinking gallons of coffee and riding lesser-known trails all over the Northwest. These are her stories.

First Impressions: Bern Prescott


Pretty much everything Bern touches turns to cool so when I found out the lifestyle-inspired skate/snow brand was branching into women’s mountain-bike helmets, I had to have a look.

The Web Monkey Speaks: I, Robot…or Not


Should you believe the subjective, field tests you read in magazines and on websites? Wouldn't it be better if products were tested in a controlled, laboratory setting? Blind belief in lab results is ridiculous. Here's why.

Bike Test: Juliana Roubion C


FIRST OF ALL, YES, THIS IS A VERY, VERY EXPENSIVE BIKE. BUT, the almost-unbelievable pricetag is also part of what makes it remarkable. That a brand would risk producing a bike gleaming with the most expensive parts available for such a small pool of potential buyers says a lot about the state of the women’s market.

Luis Leao Pinto Wins the 22nd edition of La Ruta de los Conquistadores


After he considered quitting, Portuguese cyclist Luis Leao Pinto was crowned the winner of La Ruta de los Conquistadores 2014 on Saturday, Nov. 9, after crossing the finish line in sixth place in Playa Bonita, Limón.
