First Ride: Giro Apparel

After spending a half-dozen rides in the newly released women’s New Road apparel, I’m starting to think the marketing minds behind Giro should have called it New Mountain–or perhaps a more neutral New Ride–because the pieces seems to be just as comfortable on singletrack as on asphalt, if not more so.

Two of the most iconic cyclists of all time singing a duet on Italian television? Yep. Could this be a hint at what we’re working on for our next issue of Paved? Perhaps. If you’re impatient and/or can’t understand a word of Italian, skip forward to about the 2-minute mark. – –

05.18.2013

About 18 months ago, photographer Daniel Pasley and I were discussing plans for a feature story we were planning to do for Paved magazine’s sister publication, Bike.

Dirty Words: Bike to Work?

05.17.2013

Today is National Bike To Work Day. Lots of folks are leaving their cars in the garage.... I’m OK with that because some percentage of them might actually start riding to work, but my cynical side says this is a feel-good day, then its back to using the EZ-Pass to the Lexus Lanes on the way to resting a $30,000 German-made automobile in a concrete stall for the eight or nine hours you’re at work.

Review: Rocky Mountain Instinct 970

05.16.2013

There are plusher bikes out there. Lighter bikes as well. Where the Instinct excels, however, is its balance and versatility. I'd happily ride this thing anywhere outside of a bike park. A quick tweak of the geometry and the bike is ready to tackle just about anything. That's not something you can say of most 29ers.

The Bakery: Chasing the Dragon

05.16.2013

As I watched the girls in the camp improve, hitting bigger jumps and drops, pumping confidently through big bermed corners and tackling steep sections I got a little twitchy. I knew how they were feeling; I knew that as they pushed themselves a little further each time they were chasing the rush of accomplishment.
