Sketch: Top of the Underworld


SCROLL THROUGH THE PHOTOS ON SCOTT TUCKER’S PHONE and you might be surprised by what you see: South African downhill legend Greg Minnaar with a tortilla stuck to his face via a blob of guacamole, British DH phenom Josh Bryceland wearing a Corona bucket as a helmet to protect against edible projectiles and other conversation-inducing images of mountain-bike royalty. Most of the oddities are from the past few years of the Northwest Cup’s premier event: The Underworld Cup and its subsequent post-race food fight, which has become an annual tradition.

The Web Monkey Speaks: The Tao of Dio


People fixate on the ride quality of a $3,000 carbon wheelset or obsess over how to shave another eighth of a pound off their 23-pound race rocket, but if you’re really interested in getting the most out of your ride, there are less obvious, but more important, items to sort out. Consider these the Ronnie James Dios of your bicycle. Underappreciated. Disrespected. Downright obscure. But in the grand scheme of things, so very important.

Bike Test: Ibis Tranny 29


Words by Nicole Formosa $5965 | IBISCYCLES.COM The Ibis Tranny 29, as its name suggests, is much more than meets the eye. What the bike appears to be at first glance is actually covering up something far more complex and versatile. And with this use of the word ‘Tranny,’ that’s a good thing. Our test

Ibiza Dreaming: Golden Beaches And Tremendous Trails | Trippin’ Worldwide

Review: Smith Pivlock Overdrive RX


This review is for the roughly 30 percent of us who are nearsighted. Making sure the person we’re checking out across the bar is the correct gender requires us to fumble around and take out our second set of eyes. I’m one of those people. When riding, I’ve always paired contact lenses with normal riding glasses, and over time I’ve adapted to the irritating discomforts and dry eyes that anyone who rides with contacts knows about.

Feature: Mood Swings


We can’t see anything as we pedal through downtown Hood River. It was supposed to be sunny and 75 degrees, but the weather shifted overnight and now all but the lower corner of Hood is shrouded in gray, swirling rain clouds.
“Hood is a moody bitch,” says photographer Tyler Roemer as we pedal past one of the town’s breweries, telling us that the mountain seems to create its own, erratic weather patterns. “People get caught on Hood and have to get rescued all the time.”

Tested: Gore Fusion Tool Jacket


Winter generally comes in two basic flavors: clear and cold or cloudy and wet. Gore’s Fusion Tool jacket is the right bit of kit for that first kind of winter day. Even when the mercury is well below the freezing mark, the WindStopper-equipped Fusion Tool is downright toasty.
