enzed part 7: The Emperor’s Old Shorts

"We had no idea what to call them,” Gary recalls, “so we put a piece of paper on the counter and invited people to write down suggestions for a name. And this local guy named Jake, he came up with the name dobies, but I don’t know where he got it from. I thought it sounded pretty good. It’s a bit confusing though, since some customers call them “dobbies” with two Bs, and some call them doobies, with two Os, which they are neither."

The Web Monkey Speaks: Geek Love

03.17.2014

Unicycles are, a wise man once told me, nothing more than a desperate cry for help—the cycling equivalent of the handlebar mustache or Kokopelli tattoo. I’ve often felt there was something to that characterization...but maybe I've been wrong all these years.

Student Bike Builders Turn Up At N.A. Handmade Bicycle Show

03.16.2014

At the North American Handmade Bicycle Show this weekend (NAHBS), a handful of students wanted to show the nation’s best bike builders that they, too, were masters of the craft. The students are enrolled in Professor Steve McGuire’s bike-building class at the University of Iowa’s art school. Class enrollment is spread fairly evenly between engineering students, like graduate student Ryan Grant, and art students, such as Jim Busby. It’s believed the program is one of only two such classes in the nation.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.
