Fox Racing Shox has made some important changes throughout their suspension lineup for 2010 by expanding some of their proven technology into other platforms. The 32 mm series of forks will be equipped with the downhill proven FIT damping cartridge for more control and reliability, and the revered Float RP23 should become even more capable with the addition of Boost Valve technology. Inside we'll take a closer look at both of these systems and what they mean to the rider. Put on your learning hat as there are two great videos to watch inside!

Giro gloves and glasses - Interbike 2009 Giro gloves and glasses - Interbike 2009
The Outdoor Demo is the perfect place for Giro to show off their latest gloves and glasses, with its jagged rock surface and blazing hot sun the new protective goods from Giro seemed perfectly appropriate. Come on in and examine the new DJ gloves as worn by Greg Watts and Jamie Goldman, the updated Xen glove, and the new ladies version, the Xena. If you are still enjoying the sun where you live, or even just want to be prepared for next summer, the new casual glasses from Giro look great for relaxing after a ride.

Easton Components - Interbike 2009 Easton Components - Interbike 2009
While Easton had a small booth at the Outdoor Demo they certainly had it stuffed full of arousing bike parts. Inside we take a closer look at their new AM tubeless compatible (and rather light) Haven wheelset. With a magnesium finish and straight pull spokes, the Havens are one eye catching pair of wheels. On top of the trick wheels, Easton also had the Havoc stem and Monkey Lite DH bar out in the dessert, both with new sharp graphics. If that sounds interesting to you then be sure to check out the pictures and video inside!

Manitou Dorado - Reviewed Manitou Dorado - Reviewed
Back in February of this year you may have caught our preview of the Manitou Dorado that we have had on test since that time. It's been a long time since we've caused such a stir on the website. With about 200 comments and too many reads to count, it easily garnered the most attention of any of the products to hit the front page in recent memory. But I guess that was sort of expected. I can't remember a single new product causing quite the crap storm of interest, but with carbon legs and a massive price tag it was bound to do that. And let's not forget that it is from Manitou, a name that many once swore by but that had fallen by the way side in more recent times. There are a few good questions to answer, mainly is the new Dorado really that good?

Read on to find out what we think about the latest wonder fork from Manitou.

Specialized Bikes 2010 Long Travel Launch Specialized Bikes 2010 Long Travel Launch
This summer I had the pleasure of attending the first ever long travel launch on behalf of Specialized bikes. They chose the world's most renowned gravity place to do this too, Whistler B.C. Over the course of a few days we were introduced to all their gravity bikes and given park time to really get a feel for the bikes. Since this was my first time at a launch with Specialized, I also wanted to get to know the guy behind all their FSR developments and to see why they feel so passionate about FSR bikes.

Check out the 2010 Specialized long travel bikes and an interview with Jason Chamberlain inside,

Ibis Mojo - Review Ibis Mojo - Review
Back in April I decided to build up an All Mountain machine that is the Ibis Mojo after reading an article by Calgary Cycle and being curious after Brian Lopes made the move to this brand. This season I really wanted to re-align myself with mountain biking and earning the whole ride, not just the descents and I found what I was looking for after building up the Mojo. Building up a bike that let me climb with ease and not be scared to bits on the descents is what I needed.

SixC is a true AM/FR product, 20+ grams lighter than anything else out there and perfectly suited for the 5 to 6 inch travel range. Here is some information on the new lineup.

Euro Bike - Part 2 Euro Bike - Part 2
More shiny things, more girls, more carbon, more ti-tanium, more rubber, more gossip, more girls, more girls, more flesh. Open wide kids..

Not quite sure what the deal is with Eurobike and the accommodations, it kind of sucks, big time. Or was that our planning? Seems for something like ten euros you can be in a field in a hired tent. Or bring along your own and pay pennies. Word was you could even get in a mobile caravan, hopefully a liitle more fresh and plush than my Abbey Executive 390. Look one up and await for your toes to curl.
