Hope Tech: New Carbon Seatpost

This week Hope announced their new made in the UK carbon seatpost which touts the weight (195g) for a road or XC rig, but is strong enough for DH riding. Hope can do no wrong in my opinion and I can’t wait to see one of these in person, late March. For now, check out more information at Hope!

Sven Cycles: Forager Cargo Bike

After seeing Nils’ cargo bike roll out with a camp grill at a recent LA River Camp Coffee, suddenly the idea of utilizing a bike like that for over-the-top forest picnics has piqued my interest. Here’s Sven Cycles‘ take on that platform. Tested thoroughly over the course of a few months, this bike was designed and built specifically for a local chef and as you can see, is really capable of hauling everything you need for an afternoon meal in the woods.

Projects like this, especially when they come from the shop of a framebuilder, really make me happy!

Check out more photos and full tubing specs below! (more…)

Hard Tails on Hard Trails

We’re a big fan of hardtail MTBs over here. They’re easy to make domestically, easy to maintain, lightweight and best of all, with the right geometry and components, you can take on just about any trail. Stanton Bikes in the UK show us how it’s done on their new Switchback 631.
