Winter in coastal BC looks incredible. Curtis Robinson hits warp speed with arguably the best soundtrack to any ride: tires on dirt.
What can I even say here? Aaron Chase goes buck wild in the snow. Although the Pivot LES does look pretty damn nice, with its 26×3.8, 26×4.8, 27.5+ and 29+ compatibility with the Swinger II dropout.
Got a MTB you want to convert to a dirt drop machine? Genenalle’s new GX Shifters are a new component setup option for that. They’re compatible with Shimano’s 10 speed Dyna-sis and Shadow Plus MTB derailleurs, so you can now get cassette coverage up to 36T.
I’m seriously considering these for my Indy Fab. See more at Gevenalle.
Things are just better blackened. Case in point, the new SRAM XX1 black group. All that tonal range, minus the red and white accents. Sure to bring a reign of darkness to your most sinister steed, or something. Also as a new addition to the XX1 line, SRAM has a neat little plate that takes the place of your old front mechanism, as well as carbon crank boots to protect the ends of your crank arms.

Yep, it’s true. Fat Chance is back and he’s not only selling shirts and jerseys, but frames. Now on Kickstarter, the new 2015 Yo Eddy frames are available for backing, with a September 2015 delivery. Limited to 150 frames, these bikes won’t last long.
Hopefully this means the New England legend has returned for good.
Support Fat Chance on Kickstarter by buying stickers, shirts, jerseys, or yeah, a frame.
Blackburn’s Ranger program returns in 2015, with another call for entries. Head over to Blackburn for more information!

Boo Bicycles makes a ski mount for bicycle racks. It doesn’t have to be a fat bike, either. Maybe there’s a bike rack at your ski lifts, or you just wanna get out of town for some cross country skiing. Whatever the motivation, this simple, yet effective solution has your name on it.
Made in the USA out of 6061 aluminum, these durable mounts are only $135 and are available for pre-order now at Boo Bicycles.
Have you ever considered whittling your collection down to a single bike? Of course you have – we all have. For the better part of a decade I’ve owned more bikes than there are days in the week, with spare parts for all of them. Getting rid of all but one? Unthinkable. Which one of a carefully curated fleet, each with its own merits and reasons for being, would make the best all-rounder? Which would be your “one bike”?
This idea of downsizing and simplifying has been a theme for me this year. In July, after months of preparation, my girlfriend and I packed our lives and our dog into our two cars and moved to a 227 square foot cabin deep in the Selkirk Mountains of southeastern British Columbia. Like many, we’d been dreaming of living in the wilderness, but this was it. Living the dream, right? (more…)
This one starts out pretty chill but gets rowdy quick. Cody Kelley takes his Enduro 29 and throws it down some big lines with steeze. There’s a line there, oh, and a line there!
If you’re a fan of the immense scenery in BC and slopestyle, don’t miss this one!
