We’ve been beating this drum for a long time. We’re all representatives of the cycling community, so how we behave on the trails, especially to other users, affects the community. Stopping when you come across equestrians, hikers, trail runners and saying hello will positively impact the stereotypes facing mountain bikers. Be Nice Say Hi provides a fun, simple reminder. They also make stickers, decals, and patches. Head on over and see what they have to offer.

Four wheelin’ and cycling are not exactly a common pairing yet this merging of two hobbies for me creates all kinds of interesting problems to solve. For instance, finding a bike rack that lives up to the same standards as my truck’s other accessories. From the roof top tent’s aluminum structure, to the steel bumpers and other body armor. I need a rack that can take a few hits and keep on tickin’… or in this case, clickin’. That’s where 1-Up USA’s newest model, the Equip-D double bike rack comes into play.
How’s this for a Throwback Thursday post? Japan’s WBASE and Brooklyn Machine Works have teamed up to resurrect the OG Gangsta Track for one last round. The V4 Gangsta Track features many of the OG’s design nods including the bi-plane fork, seat tube cluster, yet widens the seat stays to allow for removable brake bosses. These rough and tough frames would be a bombproof urban fixed gear or even a tracklocross bike with their 35mm ‘cross tire clearance. The V4 will be available in transparent black, black, and blaze orange. The pre-order is live now at King Kog Brooklyn, the official US-distributor for this collaboration, and the frames are due to land from Taiwan and ship from Brooklyn in early September. Head to King Kog to place your order and see more details including sizing information below.

Chris Cocalis, the owner of Pivot Cycles, knows a thing or two about bicycle design and the popularity of his bikes prove just that. I’ve reviewed a lot of full-suspension bikes over the years and am accustomed to people’s reactions at the trailhead or on the trails but no bike received such trail accolades as the Mach 6 Carbon. Before I had even gotten to ride the bike, it seemed like everyone had something to say about it. Which, as someone trying to approach reviews without any bias, can be a bit much to handle. Yet, here we are, with a month on the bike and a month since I’ve ridden the bike, ready to talk about the Mach 6. Does it live up to the lore? Read on below.
Brian and Alicia were two of the first people I connected with when I was visiting Minneapolis a few years ago. I was lucky enough to visit their house last summer for the piece on Delcie’s bike and Brian joined us for DFL shenanigans and even had some photos featured. It’s been awesome watching them grow as creators. Recently Brian decided to go full time with Hoot Ventures and redesigned their website and store. Initially, they are offering their munchie bag in three colors, but expect more wonderful things from them in the future.
This is the seventh layout of the Radavist 2019 Calendar, entitled “True Call” shot with a Canon 5D and a 100-400mm lens in Telluride, Colorado.
“Happy 4th of July. Here in the US, we pride ourselves in our Bald Eagle. It’s our nation’s symbol, a proud, noble bird with a majestic call. But have you ever heard a Bald Eagle’s caw? It’s hardly the hearty screech as depicted in movies. That’s because the Bald Eagle’s call is often substituted for the Red Tail Hawk’s.”

The latest rim from Velo Orange might pique your interest! Their Voyager Rim is a classic-inspired, yet modernly equipped, tubeless, box section rim that looks great on everything from a randonneur, to an all road bike and beyond. Its polished finish ties in well with classic componentry. Durability is always a concern with aluminum rims too, so VO built the Voyager with stainless steel eyelets and utilized a double wall construction. You can run from a 38mm tire all the way up to a 2.4″ and comes in 26″, 27.5″, or 29″ diameters.
-Intended Tire Size: 38mm-2.4″

Your RockShox Reverb dropper is going to need service at some point and with the new Stealth Reverb design it’s easier than ever. With RockShox’s new Reverb Stealth port design, you can now remove the saddle, depress the valve, compress the post and reset. The result is the air is channeled back into the chamber leaving the oil where it is supposed to be. The Reverb Stealth post body is now shorter too. Head on over to RockShox to see more.
Perhaps you wanted a set of the G-Series wheels but were squeamish about spending a lot of money on a carbon wheelset?
Carbon fiber wheel warranties have come a long, long way. ENVE recently stepped up to the plate with a new, very impressive coverage plan. Offering a Lifetime Incident coverage package. This new warranty replaces a rim no matter what happens to it. As long as you’re the original owner. Say you break an ENVE rim and they replace it, what happens to that replacement rim? Is it warrantied? Yes! ENVE has always covered “rock strike” failure under their 5-Year Limited Warranty, now it’s just extended to the life of that rim.
Under the new Lifetime Incident, that rim will be covered for life. Even if your wheel breaks while shipping your bike, or you run over your bike with your car, or you hit a moose, anything is covered under their new Lifetime Incident warranty. There’s now second-hand coverage as well. If you break a used rim, that you bought second-hand, you’re now entitled to 30% off a new rim. Then, that replacement rim will be covered for life.
The new 5-Year Limited Warranty covers any manufacturing defects, so you can now confidently invest in carbon fiber, made in the USA rims. Head to ENVE to read all about it.
