Palmer’s Picks: Ibex Shak Gloves

There are a few good cycling-specific winter gloves out there from brands like Showers Pass, Gore, Endura, and Specialized, but the Ibex Shak–a glove not necessarily designed with cycling in mind–has become my favorite cold weather mit.

News: Brian Lopes Signs Deal With New Sponsor

03.14.2014

Brian Lopes said on Friday afternoon that he has signed a deal with a new bike sponsor, and will announce specifics about that relationship before next month’s Sea Otter Classic.

NEWS: Big plans for small-town Nevada

03.14.2014

Caliente, Nevada, isn’t what most mountain bikers think of when fantasizing about their next ride destination. The one-time mining and Union Pacific depot town of 1,100 sits two hours northeast of the glittering lights of Las Vegas in the middle of the Nevada desert, at 4,400 feet in elevation.

2014 Bible of Bike Tests Roundtable Reels: Nukeproof Pulse Pro

03.13.2014

In the unthinkable event of nuclear holocaust, only the Nukeproof Pulse Pro and the cockroaches would be left standing. Well, actually, Nukeproof's speed-seeking downhill rig wouldn't be standing at all—it would be hurtling down technical terrain at mind-numbing speeds. And it would crush any cockroach that scurried into its path. Watch this video to find out why.

Tested: Spank Spike Pedals

03.13.2014

Pancake thin, but strong like bull--Spank has created a burly but lightweight flat pedal that has withstood the test of time.

Where Are They Now? Marla Streb

03.13.2014

Unless you’re new, have been living under a rock, or just plain believe that the study of history—any history—is a waste of time, mountain-bike legend Marla Streb needs little introduction. She wears the body art of a Single-Speed World Champ (twice), is a multiple-time U.S. National Champion, has stood on the top step of the World Cup podium, graced the cover of Outside magazine and, as she hones in on five decades of being alive, she’s still looking forward to racing season—she’s just not going to be going at it every weekend.

Gallery: Tales from the 2014 Taipei International Cycle Show

03.12.2014

The Taipei International Cycle Show is about more than handshakes and the ritual exchange of business cards. It's also about zombie metal and breastfeeding.

Video: Anka Martin & Friends Shredding Nelson, New Zealand

03.12.2014

Our trip went down in early February in beautiful Nelson, New Zealand, and the surrounding areas of the Nelson Tasman district. We planned a little backcountry adventure with a few of my friends on our Juliana bikes. We rode sick tracks, and ended big days with beers & delicious food. Perfection. Bliss. After a few days of NZ backcountry at its best, we were exhausted, exhilarated and knackered. And, we were content. Happy, satisfied, and loving our lives.

2014 Bible of Bike Tests Roundtable Reels: Yeti SB-75 Race

03.12.2014

After spending serious time on the new Yeti SB-75 during our Bible of Bike Tests , we were divided over how it stacks up against its 'Super Bike' siblings.

Race Face Ambush Knee Guards and Indy Elbow Guards

03.11.2014

A good knee or elbow guard review really could be as simple as, “they work, they’re comfortable and they haven’t fallen apart – done.” In that respect, my first impression is that Race Face nailed it with the Ambush knee and Indy Elbow guards.

Jérôme Clementz and Crew Launch New “Escape” Video Series for 2014

03.11.2014

We're jealous of Santiago, Chile for having trails like this on the city's outskirts, and jealous of Clementz for riding them faster and smoother than we ever could. Do the wheels on his Cannondale Jekyll look slightly larger than 26, but smaller than 29?

2014 Bible of Bike Tests Roundtable Reels: Intense Carbine 29

03.10.2014

The Intense Carbine 29 certainly evoked some intense feelings from the testers who put this impeccably equipped 29er through its paces in Sedona, Arizona.

The Web Monkey Speaks: Someone Wants You Dead

03.10.2014

When you murder something, you damn well intend to put out its lights. You’ve mulled it over in your mind. You’ve considered your weapon, your approach. You mean it and then some. So, yeah, I murdered the rhododendron bush and made my kid cry: it was the bush or my bike, and it was never even close.

enzed Part Six: Livin’ in a Van, Down by the River…

03.09.2014

A Dozen years ago, Bike’s photo editor David Reddick, his blushing new bride Michelle, and myself spent a few weeks traveling around New Zealand in a middlin’ Winnebago scale RV. It was a great trip, aided on one hand by the convenience of driving around in a house, and also marred somewhat by that very same thing. On that trip, I realized that my irrational lifelong hatred of RVs wasn’t that irrational at all, and that they do, in fact, totally suck.

Between The Eyes: Jordan Manley’s #dailywalk from 2FLAT on Vimeo. Between The Eyes is an ongoing series of short videos that attempt to explore and communicate the fascinating stories behind photographers and their craft. This isn’t a how-to or a discussion of techniques, but rather it’s a look at the personality and thought that goes […]

2014 Bible of Bike Tests Roundtable Reels: BMC Trailfox TF01 29

03.07.2014

Although we’ve never piloted a monster truck, the feeling can’t be far off from riding the TF01 29. It’ll jump a set of 20 cars no problem, but making that turn at the end of the run can prove difficult. I felt invincible aboard the BMC until I needed it to change directions, at which point I felt, well, slightly less so.

Tested: Lezyne V11 Multi Tool

03.06.2014

During a two-hour period of the BC Bike Race last year, I repaired seven chains, making two bikes single-speeds, fixed a broken shifter and a shoe, and evacuated a pneumothorax. I was working for the race as an Ambassador/Bike Patrol so needless to say I put a lot of emphasis on the tools I carried with me. In fact I have always put a lot of emphasis on the tools I carry. For example, I’ve always carried a full size shop quality chain tool, however, the Lezyne V10 has me possibly rethinking that decision.

Preview: Cannondale Scalpel 29 3

03.06.2014

For the past dozen years, Cannondale's Scalpel has lived up to its name—a razor-sharp tool that’s all about finesse and accuracy. It was also expensive. This all-aluminum version brings down the price point on racing performance.

Where Are They Now? Dave Cullinan

03.05.2014

Cullinan’s incredible worlds-winning run is the stuff of legend. It happened five years before Philippe Kahn decided to connect a digital camera to a cell phone and broadcast the birth of his daughter, so the course was absolutely void of iPhone-toting spectators documenting every angle and second of the event on Instagram and Facebook and Twitter and YouTube and Vimeo. And the Red Bull Media House wasn’t even a faint glimmer in an entrepreneur’s eye back then. So, Cully’s rainbow-winning performance is much more mysterious and under-documented than, say, Danny Hart’s astonishing Champery ride in 2011. It was, nevertheless, something extra special.

2014 Bible of Bike Tests Roundtable Reels: Santa Cruz V10

03.04.2014

Our crew was completely divided on Santa Cruz's flagship DH machine. With back to back World Championship pedigree, and an equally impressive price tag, the biggest debate was on value. Be sure to pay attention when the testers mention fit, as this bike runs on the small side.
