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.
After spending serious time on the new Yeti SB-75 during our Bible of Bike Tests , we were divided over how it stacks up against its 'Super Bike' siblings.
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 Intense Carbine 29 certainly evoked some intense feelings from the testers who put this impeccably equipped 29er through its paces in Sedona, Arizona.

Marin has made a comeback with the Mount Vision Carbon XM Pro. But how does this smartly equipped model rank against other top-of-the-line 'enduro' bikes?
LIV/Giant's 4-inch-travel Lust 1 is light, fast, good-looking and equipped with some of the best parts you can get on a bike for just over $3,000. Plus, it's one of the only brands to fully commit to designing and producing mountain bikes specifically for women. So what's the catch? Is there one? See what our testers thought.
It took Malibu, California native Marshall Mullen five years to perfect his private backyard dirt jumps. Our video and photos give you a rare look at them.
Since when did cross-country mountain biking become synonymous with spandex, seriousness and shedding every possible gram from your bike? For most riders, it's simply about going for a shred with your friends—and, of course, going as fast as you can, both down and up.
Most mountain bikers are well aware of Specialized's flagship Stumpjumper and Enduro models. But hiding in the shadow of these standout bikes is a less-celebrated yet equally capable beast: the Specialized Camber Expert Carbon EVO 29.
