In the opening episode of season 3 of “Fabien Barel Presents,” mountain biking legend Fabien and his buddy Jey Clementz are in the south of France. With Fabien’s grandma watching, the guys try their hand at petanque, a traditional game of the region. But it doesn’t go very well, so they go back to doing what they do best: ripping nearby trails and ripping on each other along the way.
The G-Form knees are fully flexible and stealthy enough to fit under a pair of jeans (if that's your style). The Made-in-America pad features G-Form's own Reactive Protection Technology, which (like D3o) is soft and pliable 99 percent of the time...right up until the moment that something slams into it. At that point, the molecules within the pad material instantly bind together, "stiffening to absorb and redistribute the energy."
"So, riding snow...It's a little bit like mountain biking, but it's a little bit like skiing...and not totally like anything else," that's how one rider puts it at the outset of Cold Rolled Chapter Three. There's some great footage of lakeshore riding, grand vistas and the occassional flying Squirrel. Another cool chapter from a movie that proves that sub-zero temperatures and the risk of hypothermia aren't enough to stop some people from having a good time on their bikes.
It's not just a video, or a feature story or a photo gallery--The Angels' Share combines all of these things to create a new way to experience a story--in this case, a massive exploration of Scotland's trails, culture and single malt whisky. Sit back, enjoy and get ready for something entirely new.
We like the Smith Pivlock Overdrives, which allow you to swap out lenses with no drama at all. What's more, the Smith's are incredibly comfortable (even the non-slip nose pads are adjustable) and mate well with a wide variety of helmets. Good eye coverage, easy to tailor to your tastes, excellent optics...the Pivlock Overdrive has a lot going for it.
In this final episode of the RockShox Game Of Bike for 2013 with Aaron Chase who has challenged one of the best tricksters around. For years Kirt Vories has pushed the limits of street riding finding stunts and obstacles out of things most of us would consider every day architecture. Who will win the final match up!?
The Thule Crossover, doubles as a compact roller bag and a backpack. It's large enough to handle a couple days worth of clothes, yet small enough to qualify as "carry on" luggage on most airlines, which eliminates that annoying wait at the luggage carousel. What's more, it's packed with smart features that help take the hassle out of travel.
The Furtado stole one editor's heart. It had all the updates from the original Juliana I’d been looking for: a lighter, stiffer carbon-fiber frame, a boost in travel, an upgrade from the single-pivot suspension platform to Santa Cruz’s VPP linkage and 27.5-inch wheels. This is how she built the bike up to be her perfect match.
There’s a reason you see Feedback Sports’ Pro Elite red-anodized beauty holding bikes at races all over the world—they are damn good. Simple as that. I’ve been using mine almost daily for four years now and I’m still impressed by just how well it does its job.
Giant's new Trance Advanced SX 27.5 is a bit of a quiver killer. The lightweight, 5.5-inch travel bike is incredibly capable. All day grunts in the outback? You bet. Punishing descents? Sure. Fast-paced cross-country rides? Absolutely. Here's a quick pick at a bike that impressed us during our testing for the Bible of Bike Tests, in Sedona, Arizona.
What's hanging on your walls? Ditch the Monet or Picasso and put up something worth showing off. We're selling professionally mounted, one of a kind photos--some of the best to have ever graced the pages of Bike. When December is over, so is this opportunity, so get on it. Proceeds from the sale go to WORCA, to help support the great trails around Whistler.
If you are looking to buy a brand new bike and want to keep on 26-inch wheels then the list of options is very small, and probably getting smaller and smaller by the day. However, the bikes that are still out there are amazing, regardless of anything. Here's our short list of the best of `em.
Videographers often turn to drones affixed with video cameras to capture that breathtaking "eye-in-the-sky" footage. Sure, they are probably using some godawful expensive drone and camera combo, but you can still capture some of that glory for yourself without gouging your bank account too deeply. Enter the DJI Phantom.
The lunch ride is a sacred thing for the employees of Yeti Cycles. To put it in their own words, "Don't call us between 11:30 and 1:00. We won't be here. Every day, weather permitting, we shut our doors, turn on the answering machine and head out for a ride at lunch...This daily opportunity to get out and ride is a large part of why many started working here, but at the same time, it allows us to test and refine new models, try out component spec, or just drop the boss on a climb."
For one day each fall, the crew at Bilenky Cycle Works transform a working junkyard into a cyclocross racecourse. Over 200 racers navigate the salvage yard -- twisting chicanes around rusted cars, hopping over barriers fashioned from tires, bumpers and miscellaneous eroding auto parts.
Nothing says "I love you" like a pair of folding, stainless steel medical sheers with a carbide glass breaker and an oxygen tank wrench. Trust me on this. The Leatherman Raptor is the obvious pick for Day 3 of our 12 Days of Christmas gift giving countdown.
