The Full Stache 8 Looks Like a Good Time!

Olive drab. Check. Fluoro. Check. Chunky tires. Check. I’d say the Stache 8 checks a lot of boxes. If anyone’s ridden the original Stache, you can probably attest to how fun that bike is, so seeing it on a full suspension platform has me intrigued. Check out more details at your local Trek dealer and see the details at Trek.

Starling Cycles’ Murmur Factory 29’r

You may or may not have heard of Starling Cycles before. They’re UK frame builders of mountain bikes, including the Murmur 29’r, a full suspension, steel, made in the UK frame. Well, the UK brand has now offered a Taiwan-built version of the Murmur, called the Murmur Factory 29’r and it’s currently available to order. There isn’t much difference between the Murmur and the Factory, except cost. So if Made in the UK isn’t as important to the consumer, they can save some money. Head to Starling to see more information on the Murmur Factory 29’r.

“Fruita’s trails are epic in a colossal manner. The city has trails for fans of big country riding, without having to venture far into the unknown. The 18 Road trails include everything from scenic ridgelines, to flowy singletrack, and jump lines. If your travels ever take you to this magical zone, don’t sleep on the riding there!”
