Drop In - Episode 3 Behind the Scenes of the Behind the Scenes... Drop In - Episode 3 Behind the Scenes of the Behind the Scenes...
Behind the scenes of the behind the scenes look into what it would be like to travel around on a big bus with a bunch of pro riders with no idea what's coming next.

Sorry about the mix up for all of you B.C. buds... We were under the impression, and the deal was, that you would get to see the first episode last weekend. Alas something was screwed up and as you know the season began with episode 2. We are in the process of kicking some butt and getting some answers. For now check out the 3rd episode story and get ready for Vancouver Island.

Dropin Interviewed - Season 4 Riders Announced Dropin Interviewed - Season 4 Riders Announced
Recently I had the chance to get Drop In Producer Mike Johansen on the phone. Mike is one half of the production team behind the only freeride show on t.v. He was good enough to let me pick his brain for over an hour on everything from season one to the soon to be released season 3 and everything in betwen. I’ve been a fan of the series since its debut over two years ago. The following are some random questions from a mountain bike lover and a Drop In viewer. I present them to you Mountain Bike Nation.

The First of the new episodes will air in Canada this weekend. This season I will write a little story that will give you an idea of what to expect in the upcoming episode. Just to wet your whistle. I might tell you about what you will see or something that no one will ever see because it didn't make the cut because of timing.
We leave a lot of pieces of each episode on the cutting room floor, these are the times I wish we had an hour timeslot to fill.

For the longest time, SRAM was primarily known for their Grip Shift technology. Finally, after years of testing and refinements, SRAM Impulse Technology Triggers were launched at the 2003 Sea Otter Classic. After seeing Shimano going the way of Rapid-Rise and Dual Control, I was excited to see what SRAM’s X-Generation line had to offer.

Kyle bielenberg Memorial Raffle Kyle bielenberg Memorial Raffle
On November 7, 2004, we lost a huge part of our community when a respected member of MTBR/Ridemonkey, loved friend, incredible rider, and all around great guy, Kyle Belenberg, passed in his sleep.

As some of us know, Kyle was the kind of guy who would do anything to help out a friend, he'd go out of his way to help people he'd just met, and in the case of his online persona, SSAddict, he'd go out of his way to help people he'd probably never meet in real life.

Winter Tire Test Winter Tire Test
So it’s a week into January and there’s a layer of snow and ice covering your favorite singletrack. What’s a rider to do?
If you’re unadventurous and aren’t looking for a new thrill, chances are your two-wheeled friend becomes a ceiling ornament in your garage. Your wedge-shaped seat is replaced by a big comfy couch and your handlebars make way for the vibrating plastic Xbox controller. But if you can handle sub-zero temperatures and want to keep riding your bike while others are riding the sofa, the good news is there are some great options for studded winter mountain bike tires that will make riding on snow and ice like a day in the park.
The only problem is which tires to go with.
