Maxxis Aspen tire review Maxxis Aspen tire review
I enjoy riding fast, rolling singletrack but have no problem dialing up the tech on the steep and rooty stuff that is really common in this area. To that end, I'm always on the lookout for a fast-rolling tire that can hold its line through varying terrain. The Maxxis Aspen falls into this category and I've been running the tire for the past few months to see if it can live on the edge as a summer and fall tire.

Graffiti is something most people turn a stale eye to. The days of seeing epic murals on the side of a buildings are gone.

And what about all those racers showing up to races with worn out tires that aren't intended for the course conditions.

Fresh Meat is always about the nice new shiny bits that we're trying out or want to show you from around the industry. But what about when we get hungry or need some stuff? Sometimes you're on a road trip and forget things, like gloves. So you go to the local bike shops and you drop your hard earned cash on parts. Here are some of the parts that I've bought on recent trips or seen and thought-hell ya I want/need that for one of my bikes or for me to make my riding more enjoyable.

The Schwalbe tire story begins over 100 years ago and has a ton of history rooted in bicyles from the beginning. Have a look at this bit of history to learn where they came from and where they are at today.

www.schwalbetires.com/company/history


Just Freeride, no cosmetics. The large volume and HEAVY DUTY features make BIG BETTY really tough. The tread is optimized for braking performance and steering. This tire is far from heavy, making it a great all-around Freeride tire.

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.
