Otso Arctodus Comes in Navy/Peach

Fat bikes are still here. Rejoice! And Otso’s Arctodus is back for 2023 with a new color, navy with peach accents. Big adventures require a bike that can rise to the occasion. Arctodus is named after Arctodus simus, an Ice Age behemoth that was the largest bear to ever walk the Earth. Like its namesake, Arctodus the bike is versatile, strong, and ready to explore. It has adjustable geometry, a durable steel frame, a massive front triangle for a frame bag, lots of cargo mounts, and can clear the biggest fat bike tires on the market. Arctodus is ready for afternoon exploration, polar expeditions, and everything in between.

Arctodus is available for pre-order now for a mid-September delivery in frameset or complete from Otso Bikes.

Jones Bikes New Schrader Valve Stems $25

Schrader valves are stiffer, sturdier and easier to use than presta valves. They have a larger diameter than presta valves allowing for increased airflow and this makes setting up tubeless tires much easier. The 36.5 mm long valve stems work perfectly with Jones aluminum and carbon rims and wheelsets. They also fit many other rims as well. The aluminum base of the stem is smooth, rounded, and lower profile which makes installing tires easier without catching the tire bead on the stem. The large inside diameter features a beveled, all metal opening for faster/higher volume airflow and no clogging. The large valve stem ring nut has more surface area for your fingers making it easier to turn. It also has an o-ring to keep it tight. The valve cores are removable and replaceable. Sealed aluminum valve caps top everything off and even come with their own integrated tools. One cap is a valve core removal tool and the other is for bleeding air.



  • Jones Aluminum Schrader valve stems with caps.
  • Removable, replaceable, valve cores.
  • Sealed aluminum valve caps with integrated tools for valve core removal and easy air bleeding.
  • Larger inside diameter for fast and easy tubeless set-up.
  • Stiffer, sturdier and easier to use than presta valves.
  • Lower profile base which makes installing tires easier without catching the tire bead on the stem.

Alexandera’s 2023 Colorado Trail Race

After Alexandera had her heart broken on the Tour Divide, her nerves were aplenty at the start of the 2023 Colorado Trail Race. She stuck to her race plan– which was to rest early and try hard towards the end to make sure her body would hold up to the extreme altitude and unrelenting terrain. What ended up being her fastest Colorado Trail effort to date wasn’t enough to pull a race win.

She placed 4th lady overall, losing her 3x CTR title to Katya Rakhmatulina, who set a new women’s record with an incredible 5 day, 1 hour and some minutes.

It’s wild how many races one can do and still feel like a rookie! Lessons learned, heartbreak felt, but pure joy in the reaffirmation; Alexandera still sees herself as a bike racer despite questioning her identity following the TD. Stay tuned to see what her final effort of the Triple Crown Challenge looks like when she races the Arizona Trail in late October 2023.



Pivot Factory Racing Limited Edition Firebird – The Meeting

It’s not just another day in the office with Pivot Factory Racing. The team needs to pick a fresh new colorway for their Limited Edition Firebird. How will they decide?



Bombtrack at the NRW Cross Cup

Cross is boss. When it comes to the different disciplines of bicycle racing, it is Cyclocross in particular that has fascinated us over the last years. In 2021, we teamed up with the cycling association NRW for the fourth time and combined 8 Cyclocross races to a local, small Cyclocross Cup: the “BOMBTRACK NRW-CROSS-CUP”. A regional series, with its races all being held in the state of “North Rhine Westphalia”. Going in it’s sixth round in 23/24, those cover every racing category from Kids to Seniors, from Hobby to Elite.
