Columns and Readings

We let you know why eating noodles is awesome, inform you what your soul muscle is and what it feels like to get “new bike wood.” And to quote this month’s Rant, “What I don’t want is to plunk around on some heavy, underpowered e-bike that needs to be charged for longer than it will run.” This Rant is a must-read.



We go deep this issue with a first hand account of what it’s like to race a World Cup downhill as an underdog team.


We also spend five, first-hand experience-days deep inside the Colorado Trail Race: “I snap, scream at the mountains, suggest that they enjoy eating Popsicles made out of feces. The mountains just stood there, unoffended.”


Reviews and Stuff

We present to you the ultimate guide for Suspension Setup. All the know-how and real world education you will need to maximize your bikes performance: tips, set-up advice and a collection of the newest forks on the market tested from Fox, DVO, Manitou and many more.
