Bontrager Barbegazi Review

Back in December, we received our set of Barbegazi tires from our amigos at Bontrager and I called dibs on them, because I prefer to run 4.8’s that are moderately knobbed and that accurately describes the Barbegazi (BBZ). I had lost one of my favorite 45NRTH Dillinger 5 tires to a finger sized hole, no doubt, […]

Diamant F1-LTD Review – By Euan Pennington

    I’m old enough to remember the 90’s, when mountain bike brands would occasionally build a bike for a trade show, it would be boggling at sub 24 pounds in weight, it would be made of unobtanium, paper-mache and hope, and it had a rider weight limit of not very much.  It was still […]

Initial Impression – Diamant F1-LTD by Euan Pennington

    Porn.  It’s all over the Interweb.  If those on the moral high ground are to be believed, it will distract you at work, cost you money, erode existing relationships and create unrealistic expectations.  I received some porn recently on the Internet, in the form of an email from Uncle Gomez, Baron of all […]

NRS Workboot Wetshoe

  Sven and I have had a long running search for the ultimate shoe for riding on the beach. Once the weather gets above freezing and we enter the spring beach season, getting your feet wet, is an inevitable part of almost every beach ride. Swollen creeks and blustery waves will eventually  submerge your boots or […]

I met Mason & Riley at the Fat-Bike Worlds this February in Crested Butte.
