Anne-Caroline Takes a New track Anne-Caroline Takes a New track
Here is one rumor that has been drifting around for a while: Anne-Caroline Chausson has retired from racing. The truth: not quite, but we won't see nearly as much of the fabulous Frenchwoman as in years past. In a recent exclusive interview with Chausson, the former Volvo-Cannondale star told us that she is planning on splitting time between "free ride events and World Cups." Chausson added that she may show up for round 2 of the downhill/four-cross World Cup at Alpe d'Huez in France, but otherwise it will be "alternative" type events only until August's world championships in Switzerland. Chausson added that she'll likely hit the World Cup finals, which come a week after world's at Kaprun, Austria.

Update on Russ Morrell's 30 Foot Hardtail Huck Update on Russ Morrell's 30 Foot Hardtail Huck
Russ saw messages on several sites that questioned the estimated vertical drop of his huck. I think it ticked him off because a week later he punched it again and went even bigger. This time we measured it point to point and used the Pathagorean theorum to determine the vertical and horizontal distances. (Math for you)

(Video for you)

Of course, you'll have to watch Statement to see the entire sequence, but until it arrives in your local bike shop or you order it online, here is a little preview.

New dw-link web site. New dw-link web site.
Imagine a bicycle suspension that could allow you to pedal over roots and rocks efficiently, without sacrificing traction and handling. Imagine a system that allows you to pedal as hard as you can, while resisting pedaling induced movement. Imagine a system that lets you pedal with incredible efficiency, without reverting your bike into a hardtail.

The dw-link suspension system is a patent pending leap forward in suspension technology that accomplishes all of this.

Pinkbike Rider Profile: Stephanie Nychka Pinkbike Rider Profile: Stephanie Nychka
Coming down off the badlands of Drumheller on a mountain bike, a single rider travels off the unsettling terrain of the hoodoos. For a moment to those watching, the rider appears to hang in the air before smoothly executing a landing. But to the one on the bike, that exhilarating moment lasts just a few seconds longer.

Initial Impressions- Sinister Ridge Initial Impressions- Sinister Ridge
A good while back, I was scrolling through the days submitted photos, and came across a picture of what looked like an incredibly well made Hardtail, that looked pretty burly. I had never seen anything like it, and I emailed the guy who submitted the photo, and asked him about the bike. We exchanged a couple emails, and that culminated in a
story
behind the bike company “Sinister.” I continued to chat with Bill and John from Sinister, and after a few months, and a meeting at Interbike 2002, a frame and fork was on its way up to us from the US for some testing. I was the lucky one who got to ride the beast they call the “Ridge.”

Review - Axiom Road Gap Pedals Review - Axiom Road Gap Pedals
There's sure something to be said for staying on your bike, especially if it's
the difference between winning a race and losing a race. Heck, in some cases
it's the difference between saving your skin and paying a visit to the
emergency room. While a helicopter ride might be fun, I think most of us
would rather do it in something other than a MedEvec copter. Norco wants to
help and offers several choices in their Axiom components line, in fact they
sent over a set of their Road Gap flat pedals for us to check out.

Review - Sportworks Bob Ratchet Rack Review - Sportworks Bob Ratchet Rack
Transporting your rig is something many of us suffer with because the systems out there generally seem pretty imperfectly designed for bigger bikes or quick access. The traditional rooftop rack forces you to take off your front wheel and mount to a bracket using quick release skewers - not a quick process and often doesn't fit disk brakes well. And that's only for a bike with a standard quick release axle. Many of us at pinkbike are riding bikes with 20mm through axles and/or upside down forks, where the mounting process involves struggling with spinning fork legs, flimsy adapters, and mounts insufficient for 45 pound bikes. Any of you without trucks surely know what I'm talking about.

This year we have an amazing group of guides and an all-star
cast of guest guides. Some of the guest guides will be joining us for the
course of the trip and others will be partaking during select days. Every
season the tours evolve and become more of an encompassing experience. As many
clients find out,the true depth of this experience is often only discovered
after the trip ends when one finds oneself longing for the trails and comradery
provided during the trip. During this season expect to explore new
locations,to spend less time travelling and more time riding and for the camp
fire to burn brighter than ever before!
