Shimano Custom Fit SPDs Shimano Custom Fit SPDs
When is comes to clipless shoes and pedals, the first name that always comes to mind is Shimano for me and for good reasons too. Shimano was the first clipless pedal I ever saw in the early 90's and I owned some of their shoes in the late 90's. With 20 years of shoe making under their soles, Shimano brought forth the Custom Fit SPD Program a little over a year ago. For 2009, they have 8 models and I'll be rocking the M230s.

Check out the process I got to go through to have my Shimano M230 shoes Custom Fit at Dizzy Cycles.

Commencal Max Max - A Season in Review Commencal Max Max - A Season in Review
As some of you may know over the past season I have been riding, writing, and learning about the Commencal Max Max. The Max Max originally started off as a basic $600 hardtail. Fully rigid, dual v-brakes, and flimsy wheels is what we started with. Over the past season I have slowly been adding parts, removing parts, and now here is the end result of my own comfortable, clean, fun street bike.

Read more to figure out where the Max Max took me.

Nike 6.0 + ID = Awesome shoes! Nike 6.0 + ID = Awesome shoes!
Nike released their 6.0 series of shoes a short while ago, and has had a very strong following. The 6.0 series was designed around kids who shred it, and want to look steezy while doing it. With such riders as Brandon Semenuk, and Mike Spinner rocking the 6.0 shoes, Nike has created a large following of rippers.

Recently Nike released their 6.0 ID program. Read on to find out more information on this unique, custom shoe designing system.

Trek Remedy - Custom built 6" travel speed machine! Trek Remedy - Custom built 6" travel speed machine!
Trek's Remedy 6" travel platform uses some new and unique features to hopefully move it ahead of the pack in the All-Mountain category. Having spent a few days on one I knew it would be the perfect candidate to build up my dream mid-travel ripper. 6 months later and I have a pretty good impression of how the bike performs and its distinct ABP pivot and FullFloater suspension system, as well as the trick E2 head tube.

Read about my build and how the bike performed....

WTB Weir Wolf Tires - Review WTB Weir Wolf Tires - Review
WTB created the Weir Wolf tire for “Mr. All Mountain” Mark Weir. A man who actually enjoys grueling all mountain events like the Downieville DH (a 15 mile downhill with a 4000' descent) and the Hell Ride (a six to eight hour event, covering 60-80 miles and 10,000 feet of climbing). So how does a tire that’s designed by some one so crazy hold up for the average Joe?

Read on to find out.

There’s no denying that wheels are perhaps the most important component on any bike, they keep you rolling and take all the abuse that you hammer at them and any failure here can make for big crashes or a long walk home a real possibility.

Stuff Mike Rides #7, DMC Moto Timer, Five Ten shoes, and KMC X9SL in fancy gold! Stuff Mike Rides #7, DMC Moto Timer, Five Ten shoes, and KMC X9SL in fancy gold!
I go through a lot of different bike parts and gear. Some of it wears out or breaks, some of it I really regret buying, and some of it I swear by. Stuff Mike Rides will show up every now and then, whenever I get around to writing it. All of the stuff that I don't feel like writing a 9000 word review on will be in one of these. More than anything though 'Stuff Mike Rides' will be about how things held up over the long haul.

Volume #7 of S.M.R. has got the goods you are interested in, which is coincidentally the same goods that I've been abusing for the last year: a DMC Moto Timer which is the poor mans way of seeing how slow you actually are, some ragged Five Ten high top shoes, and KMC's jewelry-like gold X9SL chain that Cori's Mom was kind enough to model for me!

Banshee Scythe Review Banshee Scythe Review
Source: Ryan Kuhn and Action shots by Vince Boothe

The scythe is an enduring symbol of the harvest. It is also a symbol of death – the Grim Reaper of Christian lore and Kali, the Hindu Goddess of Death, carry Scythes. When it comes to a bike built for launching one’s self with abandonment and railing at eye-watering speeds, this is a bit unnerving. Fortunately, [L=http://www.bansheebikes.com]Banshee’s[/L] take on the Scythe is a lot more like the useful tool of yore – it is sharp, simple and durable. You can reap your just rewards.
