Canfield Brothers Formula 1-My Pick for 2007! Canfield Brothers Formula 1-My Pick for 2007!
Well Interbike 2006 is long over and after getting to kick back and relax I was able to finally think about the finer things about the Big Show.

With all of the sweet rides that I checked out at the outdoor demo and inside the Sands convention center I would have to pick the Canfield Brothers Formula 1 as my top pick for 2007 bikes.

AXO TMPK DH Knee Guard: Review AXO TMPK DH Knee Guard: Review
There comes a time when you realize that you’re shins are in need of some R&R after you feel the dents, or touch a certain spot and not be able to feel it because of nerve damage. We all know mistakes happen no matter where we’re riding. It’s always nice to have something there to keep your knees and shins protected.

I was really in need of some new pads. After not owning a pair for quite a while, I wasn’t really to sure what would be a good set of pads for me. I was lucky enough to get a chance to try out a pair of AXO DH Pads.

Bern Helmets: Macon Review Bern Helmets: Macon Review
There used to be two different options for riders who used bucket helmets. You could either shred on an unapproved style of helmet, which offered no protection, yet fit well, looked good, and was comfortable. On the other hand, you could get an approved style helmet which offered full protection, but is uncomfortable, doesn’t fit, and made you look like toad from Mario kart 64. You now have a third option…

Balfa BB7 Long (real long) Term Review Balfa BB7 Long (real long) Term Review
I’ve been the proud owner of one the greatest downhill bikes of all time for four seasons now. Better yet, it’s Canadian. Everywhere I go people ask me about what the bike is all about. It has a unique look; tight and compact. It looks like there is a lot going on but the fact is the design is a simple single pivot. Being a small company from the east that is now out of business I’m not surprised at the fact that many people have not heard about Balfa. As an owner of a growing trail design and development company based out of Alberta I’ve had the opportunity to take my ride on many different contracts. I’ve tried to do my part in educating people on this French Canadian diamond in the rough over the last four years and will continue to do so as long as she’s running.

Show casing the Interior of BC’s top local up and coming talent. Our main focus is on the evolution of the sport and today’s riding styles.

The riding action is off the hook, we have filmed and built specific free ride lines for the video, tons of dirt jumping, DH pinning, and all forms of BMX from Street to gnar dirt jumps. We are trying a fairly new thing with the mixed riding genre in the film, but bike riding is coming to a point where riders from each sport can appreciate each other, and we are trying to break down some barriers and just showcase really good bike riding.

Cove Playmate FR-Still Single? Good you could use a Playmate! Cove Playmate FR-Still Single? Good you could use a Playmate!
The shore is a demanding genre of riding. Everything is located there, from big , high speed gaps, to slow rolling, techie sections. Cove Bikes has created the definition of the "shore bike" when they created the Playmate. Even though the Playmate is a free ride orientated bike, it still has huge potential to be a high speed, fast rolling single crown bike, with the potential for dual crown forks. Be carefull though, the wife may not approve of it.

Kenda Blue Groove and Cortez Tire combo under the scope-Review Kenda Blue Groove and Cortez Tire combo under the scope-Review
Tires, knobbies, rubber or treads. Whatever you want to call them, they are what give us that special connection to the dirt that we all depend on. Back in the day there were only a few different tires to choose from so it was easy, pick one and pump it up hard so you don’t pinch and you’re ready to rip. Jump forwards six or seven years and things have changed a bit. There are countless tread patterns, many different widths, a few sidewall options and on top of all that you need to pick a compound that suit’s the terrain, weather and how often you ride.

Bikeskills has just released the latest in its series of free, “How-To” videos. The new video was created to help mountain bikers understand switchbacks and develop skills to deal with them.

The switchback category was chosen by Bikeskills Joe Lawwill as a result of his experience in conducting clinics for Bikeskills. “We’ve found that few mountain bikers actually understand switchback turns. Even the ones that can make switchbacks on familiar trails often struggle when they encounter them on new trails and terrain. The objective of the video is to first explain what’s going on with a switchback and then provide the instructional elements to conquer them,” says Lawwill.

Goldman's Team Third at Cowan's Jump Jam Goldman's Team Third at Cowan's Jump Jam
John Cowan’s 4th Annual Jump Jam went off on Sunday and was fantastic, as usual. Riders were throwing down sick moves, but nothing too big went down as the jumps are very technical. Santa Cruz Syndicate’s Kirt Voreis was going off pulling some tough tricks. Voreis and Paul Bas were the only two to 360 on the jump out of the berm at the top, which was a jump that was hard enough to make on it’s own. Syndicate’s Jamie Goldman was pulling some huge backflips on the last jump, and as a member of the Aptos team, placed third at the jam.

The dirtgirls summer comes to a close The dirtgirls summer comes to a close
Well the first summer of dirtgirls has officially come to an end with the finish of the last camp and a week later the closure of the lifts in the Portes du Soleil.

Sixteen lucky graduates have gone on to a new and expanded world of biking. Lorna Eccleston who attended the first week had only been riding for 5 weeks and made an amazing improvement to her riding. She found "Riding with women makes me more relaxed and I feel more comfortable trying new things. I don't have to prove myself; I try it because I feel confident and because the other women are doing it. Plus I felt I could talk about what scares me more easily than when I ride with men, I wouldn't have come here with a group of men because I would find it intimidating."
