After a shoulder dislocation put Andi out of commission for a few weeks, the Giant Bicycles' pro trained hard to regain his top form. Once he was back on the bike, he teamed up with filmmaker Mario Feil to produce FRAMED II, a sequel to 2010's popular film, FRAMED.
Rocky Mountain’s riders are a diverse bunch--a fact the company takes pride in. With the Fourtitude video above, Rocky is setting out to show that its new Altitude bike line is equally diverse: to wit, four very different riders push the limits on one bike--Rocky Mountain's Altitude 790 MSL.

Good stuff here. Oh, and there's riding too.
