Cove Handjob and Shimano Alfine hub - Review Cove Handjob and Shimano Alfine hub - Review
This writeup is the second part of Pinkbike.com’s test of the Shimano Alfine internally geared hub. In the first part of the review, the Alfine was mounted on a Hammerschmidt-equipped rig that inspired plenty of discussion and showed that commuters can be a pretty opinionated crowd. The second part of the review has me continuing to put the Alfine hub through the paces off the road, this time mounted on a steel hardtail built for all-round trail riding.

Full review inside,

The 2010 Norco Sasquatch, 2010 Norco Two50, and the 2010 Norco Rev. One being a North Shore Hardtail designed for gnarly rock rides and big drops, the second being a hardtail designed around street riding and dirt jumps and the last being a completely rigid bike, designed for street thrashing and having fun.

Transition Bike's TransAm Review Transition Bike's TransAm Review
"In the woods this bike is like a Swiss Army knife with only one tool, and it just so happens that that tool fits nearly everything."

What has dual 26" wheels and requires no more than a bit of chain lube for a full tune up? If you're thinking a singlespeed hardtail, you're right on the money. For years I've knocked singlespeeds for mountain biking anywhere that has fast trails with steep climbs and descents. I've watched good riders painfully struggle on climbs only to spin out and slow down when the trail points downhill, so I always questioned the point of it. To my surprise this bike has it's place, which just so happens to be the tight, technical trails in my backyard, which are so wet 6 months out of the year that I find myself picking rocks out of the corners of my eyes at dinner two nights later.
