Review: Timbuk2 Race Cycling Duffle Bag

As certifiable gear heads, our closet is stuffed with gear bags. We’ve got oversized gear bags suitable for months of travel, capable of swallowing smaller bags for internal organization, to basic weekenders. Of all the bags in rotation, the Race Cycling Duffle by Timbuk2 has been a consistent favorite, thanks to its smart compartments and […]

Soloshot: Actionsport Video and Still Selfie Solution

Rallying the crew to shoot some video can sometimes be a chore, and sometimes when it comes to documenting the riding, it’s just easier to set the GoPro on a tripod, hit record and run up the trail before ripping down through the frame. It can be a bit of work, but it’s a big […]

Camelbak Charge 10 LR

A few years ago, on route to a bike event we found ourselves in the midst of a multi-car vehicular collision. Fortunately we got off relatively light, but we both sustained whiplash. After that, wearing packs on rides made us miserable. Our solution: stop wearing packs. From bottles to waist packs and stuffing additional bottles into pockets for […]

AdventureLife: Travis Burke’s Dodge Ram Van Slash Adventuremobile

In our ideal world, we’d be heading away from civilization toward epic trails every Friday at 5pm. Our Honda Element has been doing a pretty good job of getting us there and back, but recently I’ve been dreaming about a vehicle that is more capable of housing us comfortably when we’re not riding. At the moment, my […]

Ray’s Indoor Mountain Bike Park

Located 20 minutes north of downtown Milwaukee, Ray’s MKE is one of the two largest indoor mountain bike parks in the country. (Ray’s Cleveland is the other) They pack a serious amount of awesome into the park; I spent a little over 11 hours riding in two days and it went by way too quickly. This place is huge, […]

Destination Sedona Part 2: Hiline to Baldwin and Pig Tail

The small town of Sedona, Arizona is known for formations of red rock that poke out from a sea of green. We’re more interested in the miles of single track that surround the town, and the temperate, semi-arid climate that make it such an excellent winter time destination. During our recent visit, the temperatures varied from […]

Sedona: Southwest Trail Destination

Sedona. It’s a magical place. We’ve never once been there and not had an epic experience. The small tourist town is surrounded with trail options containing hundreds of miles of single track, but like much of the riding in the southwest, sharp rocks, cacti and dagger-like yucca plants surround you; even small mistakes while riding can result […]

OneUp Components RadR Cage

OneUp Components and their inexpensive 1×10 Wide Range Conversion system has been one of our favorite upgrades to trail bikes. Although we’ve been running one-by drive trains off and on for years, the products from OneUp allow us to embark on trail rides that we might not have in the past, thanks to the ability […]

Crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter and Indigogo have been instrumental in helping get new business off the ground, and is always an interesting place to check out what types of new ideas are out there being pitched. Of course, for every cool new idea (and crowdfunding hit)  like Revolights or the Better Bike Bell  there are […]
