Last week Kathy Pruitt took part in her 3rd ever Enduro race the Crested Butte Ultra Enduro that was put on by Big Mountain Enduro. It was a 5 day race that saw racers in the back country for 4 of the 5 days and one day in the Evolution Bike Park. Kathy s DH skills and ability to pace herself on the transitions earned her the top spot for Pro Women. She had to leave immediately following the last stage in order to drive from Colorado to Vegas for the show but the organizers made sure to pop by the Juliana Booth in the Mandalay Bay Convention Center and present her with her earnings. Classy move BME.

While it may look like your average adult trail bike the Ripcord from Transition Bikes is a 24 dually for all the micro trail assassins out there. Expect to see the final parts kit sporting RockShox suspension front and rear a SRAM drive train a Race Face cockpit and hydraulic brakes. While the spec is likely to change a bit by the time this little rocket hits bike shops you can expect your son or daughter to be asking you to part with 1699 USD for their own fully capable trail bike.

Are you that rider that likes to tinker on your bike or do you travel enough you really should have a set of tools in the car waiting for post ride repairs Well then maybe it s time that you looked at a tool kit like the Essence kit from IceToolz. At 112 USD it s got most of your home mechanic bases covered and will likely earn you a few free beers from your buddies in the parking lot as you know they don t carry anything to repair their bikes.

Meet the Back on Track boxers that are said to aid in blood circulation. Think about this guys you could be wearing underwear that promotes additional blood flow. We see many enhancements both inside and outside of cycling for this product. It s all in the weave of this Ceramic Textile material used in the boxer s fabric. While they offer a wide range of items we really think that us cyclists could benefit from some fresh underwear that helps with blood flow.

 Is it bad that the thing I want most from an interbike article is a truck...?

 Of course not, you could sell it for a million bucks, just to finance half of the new S-Works Demo

 looks like that tundra has IRS instead of a solid axle, must be total chaos product for pre-runners?

 Yes, because its a tundra. Throw a raptor up there and you'll be onto something.

 Toyota is made in Japan not America, and they are excellent trucks. Have you driven one?

 Actually you're wrong, they're made in America with noisy, inefficient American engines. You're right though, the Japanese ones are good.

 I thought so too but if you look closely it looks like what appears to be linkage is actually the leaf spring.

 Who cares where they are built as long as the engineering (Japan) is solid and the QC tolerances are followed. I am partial as I have been driving Tundras for the past 7 years.
  • + 12
 HAHAHA but the road bike on it! You need a truck like that to go shred some sweet pavement on your road bike?
  • + 5
 Sam's right, the Tundras suck fuel down incredibly fast. They're really nicely finished trucks, but F-150s and Chevy 1500s use way less gas to get you where you're going. Too bad we can't get the smaller diesel crew cabs that the rest of the world gets. Like the new Ford Ranger, or some of the Mitsubishi ones. They go forever on a tank, and hold just as much stuff as one of these.

 @ rocky-mtn-gman, their running a sua or spring under axle which is better for desert prerunning, still a leaf sprung rear with solid axle

 paulwatt - not to mention a well designed diesel engine will be just as powerful and have more torque. All that noise the big silly petrol engines make - wasted fuel, wasted money, and wasted power not going to the wheels. You guys need to get some european engines in your cars.

 Yup you're right my bad, still good trucks in my opinion, however from what I've read engine production is split between North America and Japan.

 The 5.7 does use fuel but it has 380hp while silverado has 355, also the toyota tacoma crew cab has a very efficient 4.0, and you can still get it with a 6 spd manual, I currently have a trd tacoma crew cab and it is an excellent truck no matter where it's made, it has good torque and gets great fuel economy.

 I couldn't agree more sam264. My buddy has an '85 Mitsubishi Montero with a 4055 turbo diesel and gets better fuel economy than most hybrids here in the states!

 As another person mentioned, it's a bummer we are mostly stuck with full size trucks in the US. Google "chicken tax" to find out why (and get a prime example of how moronic our government can be at times)

 Sorry guys, but that 'Tundra' is ridiculous, with a huge petrol engine. It's the equivalent of the Hilux, which is a compromise vehicle between city and country, a favourite of tradesmen. Also, dual cab sucks, not enough space in the tray, you're better of with single cab or extra cab.

In Australia, the truck to have is a a href="http://www.toyota.com.au/landcruiser-70-series/specifications/troop-carrier-gxl">Landcruiser Troopcarrier/a>, or 'Troopy', as seen in Cairns. This is no compromise vehicle, this is a serious truck, solid as a mofo. It's the only vehicle you'll ever see Aborigines using in remote bush, the desert, where reliability means life or death. I grew up in them, they'll do a million k's on unsealed roads without issue, so long as they're regularly maintained. The 4.5L intercooled turbo diesel V8 has awesome low down power, heaps of torque, and will do 200 kph, though I wouldn't recommend it. Also sips the juice, gets great mileage, around 11.5L per 100 k's, less when highway cruising. The Troopy can seat eleven people, plus bikes, and you can fold up the back seats or take them out altogether and sleep in it, or use it to cart furniture, or whatever you want.

 Love the Tundra..shod Maxxis on mine tires rock as good as dirt STs on the DH rig. And also old Suby Leone one of my first toy haulers. Loved that Suby.. drowned her in Rivers. Hunted her in back country no 4wd SW had a right to go. Even my truck hasn't been that off rd, snow didnt stop the itchy camel, what I named her. She was awesome..Great display Yakima.

 If your running anything better than entry level equipment that tool kit is almost useless... You might earn a free soda or some kids lunch money fixing wal-mart bikes around the neighborhood with that one. Yes, i'm a sucka and only ranting cause I bought a kit with the exact same tools in it and the dang chain wrench is the only useful thing In it. Lol

 Chain breaker? Tire levers? BB tools? not useful?

 not useless, but I wouldn't count on them to be made out of anything stronger than cheddar. For tools that will be seeing a lot of use (allen keys, spoke key etc.), it's worth spending some money on quality tools, otherwise you're likely to be spending more time and money trying to remove rounded bolts.

 It's certainly not Park Tools quality,but it ain't Park prices either. Ice Toolz stuff is reasonable quality

 My $50 tool set has gone through 2 bike builds and regular maintenance/part upgrades on 3 bikes over the 2+ years I've had it with no signs of anything wearing out. Just because it's not the most expensive, top of the line product doesn't mean it's useless.

 BackOnTrack boxers... Because if there's one thing the world needs, it's delivering even more blood flow to an already-oversupplied area that gets far more than the brain.

 If they could make "back on track" boXXer, that would be great.

 Airliners always tell me to deflate the tires because of the pressure difference when in cruising altitude.
Wouldn't this be an issue for the inflatable donut protection? Just curious.
  • + 4
 I think it's a common misconception. Planes are pressurised so no worry that tyres will burst. You would think the greatest worry would be for shocks, forks and seatposts - but they never ask you to deflate them. Many of my riding buddies are pilots and they say no need to take the pressure out of anything.
  • + 4
 At 35000 ft the pressure diffĂ©rence is Just around 10 psi, so no need to deflate.
  • + 3
 Your calculation is wrong, I think.
  • + 0
 The cabin is pressurized but the storage often isn't. Might as well deflate just for safety.
  • + 13
 In What section does pets travel? Cargo area, they would be killed if that is true.
  • + 1
 Some airlines will tell you to deflate tires, some specify you dont need to. They tell you to deflate the shocks though. Better be safe than sorry, I'll be checking the pressure when i get there anyway...
  • + 1
 The cargo area is also pressurized?
  • + 31
 That's why I always deflate my pets before traveling. And my blow-up girlfriend too. She's already got enough holes in her.
  • + 8
 The plane fuselage is basically a cylinder and so its almost entirely a pressure vessel so yes they pressurize the cargo bay, however they may not actually re-heat it, so while its the same as cabin pressure, its could also get bloody damn cold. Do note they only pressurize to about the same as the air pressure at 8,000 feet MSL (which is 10.9PSI). At the 40,000 feet altitude though that many flights going long distances operate at, the outside air pressure is only about 3psi, and the outside air temperature is usually about -70F. So while the high pressure bleed air from the engines used to pressurize usually has to be air conditioned (it typically reaches the cabin at about +200C) for the people section, by the time its piped to the hold(s) its often much cooler, when it reaches the cargo hold, which is usually the last spot before it reaches the pressure relief and exhaust valves which are almost always in the bottom rear of the plane under the tail. Some planes have seperate holds which are heated or not heated for example to transport live cargo (pets usually). Also many planes can cut off the flow of fresh oxygen to the cargo holds to starve a potential fire of oxygen. Some crews simply leave the control in the OFF position by default unless they're told their are pets onboard.

As to bleeding air from tires/shocks, as the outside pressure drops the inside pressure effectively increases as it pushes against the weaker pressure. You can see this effect in reverse if you close an empty plastic water bottle at altitude in a plane, and then watch it get crushed as you descend to land. You can also see this in areas with cold winter climates, seal a bottle inside a warm house then take it outside and it'll crush itself in a matter of seconds.

 Question: I heard a bunch of horror stories about seals blowing up during plane trips and forks/shorks needing a complete rebuild once you get to your destination. Does that happen or its an urban legend? Only time I traveled with my bike, everything was fine both ways.
  • + 2
 Forks and shocks are pressurized in a rigid chamber. The minor changes in air pressure from altitude variation will have no effect. What probably starts these urban legends is bikes laying on their sides or upside down. Many forks, especially older ones, will leak oil when not upright. Tires though, are a flexible membrane and ARE effected by altitude related pressure changes. I would not fly with tires inflated near their bursting pressure at ground level. The additional altitude could push them past their limit. ( who runs that much pressure anyway?). When I fly with tubeless mountain tires I drop the pressure down to 10-15 psi just to be safe.
