We’re huge fans of 1-Up’s bike racks and Wolf Tooth’s Hex Wrench kits so when this collaboration hit our inbox, we had to share. If you have a 1-Up rack that you use on multiple cars, then you know how hard it can be to keep track of their proprietary security bit. Well, this new tool features the standard 6-Bit Hex Wrench bits, along with a Security Bit from 1-Up, specifically used with their hitch bike racks. There’s a nifty 1-Up logo engraved on the Hex Wrench too!

From the ashes of Sun Valley’s 2007 Castle Rock fire, a community asset was born. Recognizing an opportunity within the scope of fire rehabilitation, visionary leaders from the regional Forest Service office and the Wood River Bicycle Coalition (now Wood River Trails Coalition) collaborated to propose one of the first purpose-built trails in the region. Grants were procured, approvals granted, and equipment mobilized- all at speeds normally unseen on public lands. By the fall of 2011, a small team lead by freeride legend Randy Spangler were onsite sculpting what would become a beloved resource complementing the region’s vast heritage singletrack network.

This episode of “This Rider” uncovers an otherwise unseen part of Emily Chappell and Jenny Tough’s careers. Conscious that they are not alone in their struggles with body image, they openly discuss their relationship with their bodies with the goal of encouraging others to be kinder to themselves.
The film follows Emily and Jenny on their trip through Slovenia. It’s a story of friendship and the importance of having someone to open up to.
Talking about her motivation to work on this project, Jenny said: “We realised that the thoughts plaguing our own minds were not actually unique to us – that there is a widespread problem here that should theoretically be easy to fix. We wanted to start being part of that fix.”
Stuff we see on the ‘net that causes pause…
