ENVE Introduces 35mm Clamp Bars and Stems

Last year, ENVE relaunched their M Series mountain wheels, with wider profiles, enhanced ride quality, and anti-flat protection. This year, to follow up on this redesign, the brand looked at their mountain cockpits, revising the profiles and clamp diameters. After testing and refinement, ENVE has established two base handlebar constructions; One construction rated for trail and another for gravity. These new M Series handlebars now come in four base models; M5, M6, M7 and M9. The M5 and M6 handlebar models are Trail-Rated, designed for XC and trail riding or racing, while the M7 and M9 handlebar models are Gravity-Rated, and refined for the specific needs of enduro and downhill racing.

Check out profile and pricing information below and expect all other information to drop soon at ENVE.

100% + The Mojave Desert + Sagan

Sagan’s Roubaix victory was iconic, yet the thing that left an impression on me was his 100% moto goggles. It was one of those racing moments that had me laughing with glee. His sponsorship by the brand has produced a number of videos with the Slovak professional, including this one, featuring their Speedcraft AIR design. What is Speedcraft AIR? Well, watch this, set in the Mojabe to find out.

Godspeed Trailer

The Race Across America is the subject of the film Godspeed, a documentary film hitting select theaters May 22nd.

“The Award-winning documentary GODSPEED has turned out to be no ordinary cycling film. The brutal reality of two middle-aged men, racing as a relay-team, around the clock, for an entire week, including the punishing obstacles and life-draining assault on their bodies, minds, and characters required something many world-class athletes depend on, family, friends, and faith. Purchase advanced tickets now. ”

Stompump Tire Inflator

The inventions found on Kickstarter never cease to amaze me. Take the Stompump Tire Inflator for instance. Small enough to pack with you on rides, yet powerful enough to get the job done. Check out more at Kickstarter.

PATAGÓN by Montanus

This is a good one!

“Patagón is the video that tells the adventure of Montanus during the bike and packraft exploration of a remote area of southern Patagonia, where, between the Austral Andes and the huge glacial lakes, the traditional Argentine culture of the gauchos still survives.”

Useful Double Drivetrains with Easton’s Gravel Shifting Rings – Morgan Taylor

Photos and words by Morgan Taylor

Double drivetrains may currently be out of vogue for off-pavement riding, but I think they really do have a place on today’s gravel and adventure bikes. While the chainring combinations in Easton’s Gravel Shifting Rings introduced today aren’t a new idea by any means, they make a lot of sense with the way people are using their bikes these days.

Heading to Napa Valley This Week, but First…

… I’m hoping to sneak in a few more rides in the high Inyo zone, right after the snowmelt and right before the heat really sets in. This whole region is a literal playground for hardtails and road bikes.

Surly Bridge Club Video

We made the joke that the new bike from Surly, the Bridge Club was an homage to a card game. In fact, Surly’s newest bike is an homage to hanging out under the many bridges in Minneapolis. Those who work and design at Surly seek refuge under bridges, to wait out the elements and seek seclusion, so it’s fitting they’d name their newest tourer after this behavior.

Check out the Bridge Club in video!

Ringtail’s New Jacket and Vest Colors

I must admit, there’s nothing I use more on my springtime rides than my Ringtail jacket. This year, Ringtail took their Breeze Breaker 2.0 jacket and Breezer 2.0 vest and rendered them in two new colors; sage and navy blue. Both of these colors are in stock now at Ringtail.

Oakley’s New Field and Flight Jacket Sunglasses

Oakley’s heritage with cycling runs deep and while there have been some super kooky (hey, in a good way!) designs over the years, their latest two additions offer vivid aesthetics, resulting from the brand’s ongoing attempt at making the best looking, best performing eyewear for cycling. Both the Field and Flight jackets were designed with ventilation and full-frame viewing, ideal for on and off-road riding.

Check Out Bell Lap by Laura Winberry, a Poetry Book About ‘Cross Racing

Racing. It’s not just a hobby, for many it’s a way of life. It dictates one’s sleep schedule, diet, and just about every other facet of life, at the same time directly influencing them in both positive and negative ways. Author Laura Winberry has found catharsis from the stresses of racing in the form of poetry.

Over the years, Laura took her experiences and turned them into beautiful stanzas, verses and rhythms, which in a lot of ways expose the rigors of racing, while subverting the physical activity into something poetic, beautiful and powerful. Because racing is life, Laura’s own struggles and victories have seeped into these wells of lyrical prose, resulting in an entertaining, yet intimate look at what it means to give it your all on the bike.

You can pre-order this magnificent collection of poems right now at Indolent Books and if you’re curious to read more of Laura’s writings, don’t miss her Reportage from this year’s ‘Cross Nats in Reno!
