Video: Great Days 3 – Chile Part 2 – Questioning Your Limits

This (somewhat graphic) video is the second of a three-part series by Smith Optics that brings you through the last few days of the Andes Pacifico Enduro stage race with an unexpected hospital visit to keep things exciting. A blind course makes it an even playing field, but also a game of question on how hard racers should and can push themselves around every turn. Viewer discretion is advised…if you go lightheaded at the sight of blood you SHOULD NOT WATCH the video. If not, take a look for a raw and real view into the highs and lows of enduro racing…

You’re Doing it Wrong


Here’s some evidence for your pseudo-monday stupor to prove that yes, indeed, you’re most definitely doing it wrong. Next Tuesday, you know what to do.

The Escape: Video

Video: The Son Becomes the Sensei


Eddy Merckx was a workhorse, a Belgian strongman who raced all year and kicked ass everywhere he went. Which probably made life a bit of a bitch for his son, Axel. The kid had a hell of a lot to live up to. People wanted Merckx the Younger to live up to his dad, but seriously, no one has ever lived up to Eddy Merckx. Hell, Eddy Merckx would have a hard time living up to Eddy Merckx.

Video: We Are All Animals


Spring is pretty late in France this year so our trails are still wet. It's not a good reason to let the bike stay in the garage.

Video: Devinci’s 2013 Carbon Atlas


For 2013, Devinci offers the Atlas in carbon as well as aluminum. Perhaps the biggest story, in a sense, with the Atlas is its incredibly short rear end. The bike sports 16.85-inch chainstays; that's short by any measure and it lends the Atlas a snappy, agile feel in the tightest of conditions.

Video: Out of the Shadows


Since 2003, North Shore Billet has been making bicycle products in Canada with our own hands. It’s a challenge, but it’s what we love...

Today’s Word is Snow


By Jen See || Photo by Kristof Ramon Hello boys and girls, today’s word is snow. What is snow? It’s cold. It’s wet. And it’s stuck to all the mountains in Italy in exceedingly large quantities. Also, it seems to be falling from the sky at a very high rate. At least, on all the […]

Friday Five: Hardtail


Call it a hardtail if you must, but truly this is just a very capable, all-terrain, all-mountain, all-seasons, all-weather, all of the above, all-purpose, all-around, all-aboard, all-inclusive, all-hell-breaks- loose, all-star, all manner of brilliance, bicycle.

Dirty Words: My Wheelie Mojo–Lost and Found.


I managed to get in a lot of riding all over this greasy planet without being able to loft a wheel and knock out a few pedal strokes. I could get it up enough to get over rocks and log-piles but never recovered the grace to see that angled front wheel spinning slowly in front of my face for one-two-three pedal strokes. Until last weekend. After some 50 years, I got my wheelie mojo back.

Video: FRAMED II – with Andi Wittmann

The Bakery: Discovering YOLO


Go have adventures! Carpe diem doesn’t always have to be about quitting your job and riding off into the sunset of your next adventure, unless you can (and if you can, go now!). Sometimes it’s about knowing what that adventure is and how you are going to make it happen.

Theater Thursday


Theater Thursday | Made by Hand: The Bike Maker The fifth film in the ‘Made by Hand’ series (be sure to check out the rest of their films—they’re great as well), ‘The Bike Maker’ tells the genuinely compelling story of Ezra Caldwell of Fastboy Cycles. It’s a story sadly lacking in happy endings, but solemnly […]
