This morning, Brian Vernor left for a week long bike tour with these three companions. Where they are going, what they will be doing and why they’re doing this is still a mystery. A mystery that you can follow along with the Blackburn Designs Instagram.
That Santa Cruz is hot!!!! But not as hot as Brian’s Team Dream Hat!
I love what Festka is doing. They have been cranking out some gorgeous bikes with incredible finishes over the past few months, the latest being the Festka Hunter 29′r hardtail. Gates carbon belt drive, a Rohloff hub and Columbus tubing. Not bad! Make sure you follow @Festka on Instagram for daily photos and see more of this Festka Hunter below!

Pinkbike has an exceptional story showcasing Lyle from Mission Workshop / Acre riding the English Lake District with photographer Andy Waterman. I’ve never had the chance to ride terrain like this and although it looks fun, there’s a price to pay for the beauty. Steep, slick, rocky climbs (hikes) and moody mother nature…
Head over to Pinkbike to check it out!
Ty is just one of those guys. One minute, he’s posting photos of his dog, or his fiancé on Instagram and the next, he’s in the middle of the Mojave Desert on his trusty Pugsley, doing what many would consider a really, really, really tough ride – except most people do this ride in a Jeep or an ATV. To say that he’s spontaneous isn’t entirely accurate however, because he always plans out what to bring, how to bring it and how he’ll use it. What happens once he’s there is a whole different story. One that only Ty can tell in his own words…
A late night of partying is the segue into a long day of shredding…
I’m just amazed that Giro didn’t get attacked by Drop Bears or Hoop Snakes while making this video. I’m confused about one thing though: where is Adam’s gold speedo?
Anyone else want to go rip through ‘roo country after watching this?
“Different dudes. Same agenda. At least sort of, anyway. Bring XC champ Russell Finsterwald and weekend-warrior champ Chris Dewar together to some posh digs in Palm Spring, California, and some stuff is going to happen. Late-morning shuttle or pre-dawn pedal, it doesn’t really matter—although the dawn-patrol, uphill, asphalt commute to the Idyllwild trails deserves a nod—when two like-minded mountain bikers come to check out some exciting new trails, limits are pushed and some dirt is sure to fly.”
Rock Shox’s new RS-1 is getting tons of love over at their video department.

In the road cycling world, there’s #RaphaDramatic and in the MTB world, there’s #IntenseIntense. Or something…
Jon is preparing for the Highland Trail 550. It appears that his equipment and setup is dialed, leaving one thing left: a custom 29+ from 44 Bikes. Can I just say, DAMN.

Today, in the wake of hundreds of elaborate April Fools jokes, Santa Cruz popped this bad boy up on their site. Introducing the new Nomad 27.5 shred sled. That turquoise and pink bike is so pissed off! See more specs, a killer video and photos below.
