I’m not really a hydration pack person. If I have the opportunity to don a bottle and a hip pack, or just use my bike’s trendy in-frame storage box, I’ll take it. I generally find packs to be stiflingly hot and bulky. It’s a pain to sync all the adjustments, they cause back pain, and Read More

Sebastian Osmanović is probably not a name you know. Nor is Leo Gamboc. But the rider and filmer (respectively) just produced an impressive take on the Red Bull Raw 100 concept. The riding isn’t jaw-dropping or death-defying. It’s just a bit of good shredding, and that suits the Raw 100 approach. As our sport’s soundtrack Read More

There are things you never guess you’ll miss until they’re gone. For me, the high-five is the biggest one. In my home of Revelstoke, British Columbia, the pandemic hit at a weird time.

Instead, he made sure that Read More
A few years ago at Sea Otter, Syncros introduced the Silverton SL carbon wheelset—a mind boggling full-carbon feat of engineering. Each carbon spoke, melded directly to the rim, bent slightly on its way around the “hub flange” before meeting with the rim on the other side.
