UP Field Trip – Bearclaw Bikes TŌWMAK

The second leg of my recent trip to the Upper Penninsula of Michigan took me to the east side and the tiny hamlet of Moran, home of Bearclaw Bikes. Moran is near the gateway to the Eastern UP not too far from Mackinac Island Ferry but far enough away to fly completely under the radar […]

Spring Bike Safari – Made U.P. Lake Ehfect

I’ve had a plan to get up to the UP to ride for at least a couple of years. Ever since Jason at Bearclaw Bikes announced their drop-bar fatty called the TOWMAK I dreamt about returning to the vast Huron National Forest and its hundreds of miles of rustic roads, trails, and beaches. So when […]

CABDA Midwest Report

It’s been a long time since I’ve walked the floors of a convention center filled with the latest and greatest products from the bicycle industry, but earlier this week, I laced up a pair of comfortable shoes and drove down to Schaumburg, Illinois to explore the aisles of the CABDA show. CABDA isn’t open to […]

Outdoor Retailer 2021

Sometimes being the Front Range Chief Correspondent for Fat-Bike.com has its perks and the day Gomez asked if I wanted to go to the Outdoor Retailer show in Denver last week was one of those days.  I mean, who doesn’t want to walk about and look at a bunch of gear?!  Outdoor Retailer (or OR) […]

PDW Hot Take Review by Dustin Marsh

Portland Design Works Hot Take After a lovely weekend ride at the storied Levis-Trow Mounds trail, I returned to my vehicular device to find a funky little beverage holder gadget named Hot Take made by Portland Design Works (PDW).

Stashers Bag Review by Andy Amstutz

Bags…Bags…get ya bags here.  I have fallen in love with bags on my bikes.  What used to be a simple “under the saddle” bag with a tube, tire lever, multi-tool and maybe some CO2, has evolved into carrying keys, phones, pumps, snacks and oh, maybe, just possibly, a few adult beverages for the mid-ride social […]

Cedaero Top Tube Pack Review by Dustin Marsh

Cedaero Tank Top Bolt-on Pack final thoughts I always carry too much stuff on my rides. A full-frame pack just doesn’t cut it some days. When I ordered my custom frame pack from Cedaero Bags, I had them sew up a Tank Top Pack to match. I’ll consider them as enablers for my pack-rat ways. […]
