Rock Shox: Culture Shock and the RS-1

“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.

See some photos from this video shoot below!

In the road cycling world, there’s #RaphaDramatic and in the MTB world, there’s #IntenseIntense. Or something…

Cycling in the US from a Dutch Prospective

This is kind of depressing and uncomfortable to watch – like a bad Ben Stiller movie. You just know things are going to go wrong.

Having ridden all over the world, it’s interesting for me to hear this Dutch reporter discuss the lack of “infra” in US cities. When these clips are presented in a matter-of-fact way, it’s easy to see why we’re so far behind in the US…

Nice find Jeff!

Rock Shox RS-1 in Action

Here’s a feel good flick from Rock Shox, featuring that RS-1 inverted fork:

“They’re the future of XC mountain biking—in more ways than one. Kate Courtney and Russell Finsterwald are classic overachievers: She’s a NICA alumnus gone World Cup hopeful (and is a Stanford undergrad in her spare time), and he’s a former U23 National and Pan Am champ ready to compete in 2014 at the pinnacle of our sport. Stripped of team logos, and outside the boundaries of course-marking tape, however, both are simply mountain bikers with a passionate penchant for new trails and eye-opening adventures.”

Basically, this video makes me want to go ride some more desert.
