Since this bike first showed up at my door here in Los Angeles, I’ve really enjoyed riding it. While the kit that Kris from 44 Bikes delivered for the review interim was more than acceptable, it felt good putting both my old parts on it and new wheels, which made a world of difference. Wheels are like that though. You think everything is peachy-keen one day and the next you’re rolling on new wheels, having your mind blown. Call me naive but I didn’t think a wide rim like the Ibis 941 would make that big of a difference on a hardtail. Truthfully, it didn’t feel like it until I seat the WTB Trail Boss 2.4″ tire on the 41mm outer, 35mm inner width rims.
To say it was like a whole new bike might be over-doing it, or perhaps it captures my enthrallment or excitement. Either way, I do not want to take them, or these tires off my 44 Bikes Marauder anytime soon. (more…)

Did you know the bear on the California flag is the last grizzly said to have lived in this state? Monarch, the supposed last grizzly, is even on display at the California Academy of Sciences. The California Grizzly was designated the official state animal in 1953, over 25 years since the last known grizzly was shot and killed. Yes, there’s a sordid history with the good ol’ brown bear in this state, so when I see something like the Strawfoot Dopey Bear bottles come around, I’m glad I can crack a smile. It’s like Smokey’s dopey cousin!
Pick up a set, which includes an olive drab (day) and a manzanita (night) bottle, at Strawfoot.
