Ostensibly a promotional video for Avid brakes, this is simply a pretty cool video about Curtis Keene, the impact bikes have had on his life and, if you are not particularly into the transformative powers of the knobby tire, you can just geek out to some rad footage of Keene roosting around the red rock of Sedona. Good stuff.
The Adventure Series documents a range of unique characters and people across various locations in the UK and Europe. In this second installment, Pete Scullion from Orange Bikes takes the new Orange Five 29 bike on a single-day adventure to the second largest mountain in Wales: Cadair Idris.
May is National Bike Month, but every day is National Automobile Day, Hour, Minute, Second. You can’t avoid it. I live across a little-used street from the Cardinal Forest, but I can hear the rumble and buzz from I-66 and I-95 more than a mile away all day and into the night.
Imagine travelling through one of the most beautiful countries in the world and then getting dropped off in Cortina; the word stunning is an understatement. Our goal was two fold – make our way up to one of the highest Refugio’s in Italy and two - discover some perfect pieces of singletrack along the way.
Jerome Clementz and all those guys have been crushing it. So now I get to go chase those guys -- or they can chase me. We’ll see what happens!
If you haven't heard of enduro racing by now, you have some serious catching up to do. The European-rooted race discipline is sweeping across North American this summer, with new races cropping up all over the West. California, Oregon and Washington all have their own series now, and this year marks the inception of the World Enduro Series. In other words, enduro has hit the big time.
In this video, the Godfather himself, Wade Simmons, gives Rocky Mountain's long-travel 29er a going over and drops his verdict on the bike. We've said it before--this rig is sort of floating under the radar right now, but it deserves its share of the limelight.
In this episode, Danny jumps on the back of a motorcycle and pins it around the track with on of his heroes, Guy Martin. A 140-mile per hour joy ride whilst recovering from back surgery? It made sense at the time. Danny's plans for the new video project also start to take shape.
You'd be forgiven for thinking Scott Sports was being a bit cocky when, just a few days before the start of this year's Whiskey 50, the company sent out a press release touting last year's victory at the Whiskey 50 and promising some stellar events this time around.... But then the SCOTT-3Rox team went and thoroughly dominated this year's Whiskey as well.
What happens when the world's most trusted news source becomes a proxy for utter bullish*t? Well, that just happened. Here's the story. Sorry, Associated Press...this one is going to hurt.
Norco's 650b-equipped, all-mountain machine is a well-executed bike that makes some sacrifices to its climbing abilities so that there are no sacrifices—or excuses—on the descents
The Sea Otter Classic hosted the Speed and Style competition in which riders competed against each other and the clock on a modified pump track, with time deductions at judges' discretion based upon the quality and difficulty of their tricks.
The Sweep is X-Fusion's new, dedicated 27.5-inch (650b) compatible fork. The fork features 34-millimeter stanchions and a 46-millimeter offset, which X-Fusion contends gives the fork smooth and precise handling traits.
Stunned. Shocked. In awe. Words hardly explain our amazement at the athletic display played out by Manuel Beastley and signature Fat Bike of Glory at the 2013 Sea Otter Classic. Beastley made it no secret--he intended to dominate every style of mountain biking at Otter...then he went and did just that.
What is Sea Otter? It may have started out as a race, but it's grown into something much bigger and more important than that. We interviewed the people of Sea Otter to find out what the event means to them and why they keep coming back each year.
