My gasoline orgy reminded me of why I love bikes so much. In a way, bikes are everything cars are not. Sure, both are modes of transportation, but bikes are simple and just how wonderful that fact is cannot be overstated.

We loved the 2013 Kona Process DL. They scrapped the bike for 2014 and replaced it with a new line of both 29er and 650b bikes. Why? We went looking for answers in our latest Blueprint Series video. We've also put more than 600 miles and 150,000 feet of descending on the new bikes and have in-depth reviews of all three 2014 Kona Process models. Here's the most in-depth coverage you'll find of a bike line that should turn heads this coming season.
After spending a few days with no responsibility but riding bikes, nothing to assume about strangers than they must be great because they ride bikes and drinking beer as an acceptable morning drink, the harsh reality of home, routine and fending for oneself can feel like a hangover.
