Transform Your Riding with These Four Off-Season Exercises
There's way more to riding than sheer muscular endurance. You need peak strength and power to prepare for those boosty moments when you need a power spike to get up technical climbs or switchbacks; also to improve your bracing strength (i.e. crash survivability). Really anyone who wants to improve their riding should just aim for general strength, power, flexibility and endurance of all different kinds.

Don't Ignore the Real World - Opinion
But on the flipside Trailforks and the other map apps can help you navigate unfamiliar spots or find new trails when you don't know someone who can guide you. I like going out to explore alone and these tools are incredibly useful. Now I know my local trails better than my buddies and take them on linked loops they didn't even know were possible.

Lazer Revolution Helmet - Review
We've had the ones from Bell, Urge and Met but none have really worked all that well. I'm still open to this concept.

Lazer Revolution Helmet - Review
Not really my style but I applaud the effort. We need more attempts to bridge the gap between half shell and full face.

Evil Bikes The Wreckoning - Core Bike 2016
The WFO is ugly as sin in XL, like most Niners. It's almost like they don't want tall people to buy their bikes.

Evil Bikes The Wreckoning - Core Bike 2016
Dear bike industry: these are the proper reach, ETT and stack numbers for an XL bike. The seat tube is pretty short luckily 9point8.ca makes a 175mm drop post in 34.9 so rejoice.

I'm 6'6" and ordered one. It's got more reach, stack and ETT than my XL E29 so it was a no-brainer. The short seat tube was an issue until I found myself a 175mm drop 9point8 seatpost in the requisite 34.9. Problem solved in the best possible way.

Santa Cruz Hightower - First Ride
Weird. They say it's for their guy who's super tall but the stack is 623 on a 110mm head tube. My E29 is 655 on 135. The Evil Wreckoning is 659 on 139. I guess in Santa Cruz, 'very tall' means 6'1". Which is kind of what tall means for Ibis too (also based in Santa Cruz). Go figure.
