Video: A Glimpse of Giant’s Latest Quiver Killer

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.

Video: Our Process: Yeti Cycles’ Lunch Ride

12.16.2013

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."

12.14.2013

Chapter Two of "Cold Rolled" explores the history and progression of winter cycling culture in Michigan's remote Upper Peninsula. And, yes, there is a long history of riders making pump tracks in the snow and ice, snow jumping and truly riding at the height of winter, when the the place is smothered in the kind of snow that makes most mountain bikers hang their bikes up until spring.

Exclusive: Dream Bikes–the Extended Version

12.13.2013

Smack. Dang… Smack. Damn. Smack. Gawdammit! Smack. F@ck this!!! I threw the 29er to the ground and stalked off into the woods. Godalmighty, I hated these things. Stupid-long rear centers, senile shopping cart handling up front and some kind of evil Gypsy curse against the whole breed of wagon wheelers.

A pilfered IV-bag, a clothespin and a tube sock; these were the raw ingredients for the first hydration pack--a product every mountain biker has since used at one time or another. This is the story of how one man's attempt to fend off heat exhaustion in a west Texas century led to a device which has saved everyone's bacon at one time or another.
