Specialized Clutch SX Tires - Review Specialized Clutch SX Tires - Review
A while ago a friend of mine bought a wheelset on ebay that came with some Specialized Clutch SX tires already installed. He didn't think much about them, figuring they were OEM throwaways, but out of curiosity he left them on for a ride and was pleasantly surprised. A few more rides and he was even more impressed. After his glowing recommendation I decided to try a pair of these tires for myself, inside you can read about my impressions.

With its unique mechanical design it brings something different to the table, but how good does it work?

SX Trail 1 Long Term Review SX Trail 1 Long Term Review
With several months in the saddle and many miles on the tires, it's fair to say that this riding season has been no different than most. Endless winter days spent working a shovel to get lines dialed, finally paid off when the sun started shining and it was time to ride! It has been some time since the preview of the 2009 SX trail ran, and since then, this bike has seen it all! From steep, white knuckle downhills, fast technical trails, to groomed resort runs, and even some rides up. There have been moments to remember, and some that I just can't seem to forget.

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.

With the warmer weather we have been getting lately, it seems the riding season may have finally arrived! What better way to start a new season, than with a new ride! Specialized has worked hard to improve their SX Trail line-up, and this is what they have come up with.

So the question is, how does one take an already accomplished bike, and make it better? Well for starters, why not make it lighter? Stiffer rear end? And why not throw some all new 2009 parts onto it? If this doesn't get your heart going, you may want to see a doctor. Click here to get all the details on the new generation of SX Trail bikes.

Specialized SX Trail 2  frame preview by Kuhner Specialized SX Trail 2 frame preview by Kuhner
Some seven years ago, as I sat picking shale bits out of my shoulder on Dead Dog on Mount 7 in Golden, BC, I realized I had a decision to make. The broken bike next to me had lasted a decade’s cross-country riding, and was relegated to a heap of twisted bits in a matter of insanely steep seconds. I craved a faster, bolder two-wheel experience and, as need dictates, so opened the wallet – double crown forks, fat tires and baggy shorts here I come.

I found myself living in Kamloops, BC, several years after that fateful day, where riding is all about fast flow and amplitude. It was here I quickly learned that the smoothest line is the one where your tires are on the ground as little as possible, and style, rather than sheer speed, was the method.
