Canyon’s Grand Canyon 7 is a $1,299.00 Hardtail

Canyon’s most popular hardtail in the European market has finally made it to the USA. The Grand Canyon 7 is an aluminum chassis hardtail, built with a SRAM kit, a RockShox Judy Silver 120mm fork, and comes in either turquoise or black. With a 67.5º head angle and a 74º seat angle, it’s by no means a hyper-progressive geometry but it is a great all-rounder, in an affordable package. Check out more at Canyon.

2 to 200: the Kathy Pruitt Story

It’s pretty common these days to see professional roadies make the transition into gravel. The racing and even the bikes are pretty similar, so it’s not a big stretch to make the leap. But what about coming to gravel from downhill? Now we’re talking about switching from races that are about 2-miles long with zero elevation gain to races that are 200-miles long with 10’000-feet of climbing. Race times go from a few minutes to hours…lots of hours. And that’s not even getting into how different the bikes are. The switch from downhill to gravel is way less common and a lot harder to wrap your head around…but let me introduce you to Kathy Pruitt.

Drop bars have always had a special place in my heart. Don’t get me wrong, I love mountain bikes. That feeling of flying down swoopy singletrack and rowdy trails on a mountain bike is truly hard to beat. But there is one thing that can beat it… Flying down flowy singletrack and rowdy trails on a drop-bar bike. Now that can get exciting!

Arrival in Yuma, Arizona

The Impossible Route team arrived about as prepared for it as a groom to a shotgun wedding. 

We planned on paper, but this was the Mojave Desert and Death Valley; and they would definitely hold some big surprises.

Canyon’s Inflight ‘Cross Bike

As far as modern carbon fiber ‘cross bikes go, there are some that don’t do it for me and then some that pique my interest. While Canyon’s aesthetics might not be for everyone, the Inflight looks great, in my opinion anyway. With builds ranging from $4,000 to $2,000 for a frameset, these bikes are competitively priced and as previously stated, look damn good. See more at Canyon. Not sure when these will hit the US, but I’d be willing to bet they will!

Brooks Celebrates 150 Years with Dashing Bikes

There aren’t many cycling companies that have been around for 150 years. In fact, Brooks is the only one I can think of off the top of my head. It’s quite a feat. Especially when you consider that they’re not only still around, but they’re still making saddles in the UK. To celebrate, they’ve teamed up with a number of bicycle companies around the world to build limited edition bicycles, available to the public in small numbers, based on the copper rails. These “Dashing Bikes” are something else. One of which is Germany’s Canyon
