Nicolai Announces New G1 Enduro Bike
Swingarm... Driving pleasure... this thing a motorcycle? Certainly looks like a no f***s given machining and welding throw back to 2008. 7k series aluminium pleases the soul.

Way to go Adam! I admire your attitude in the face of adversity. And that night filming was sick AF - don't see that every day.

Op-ed: Another Lifetime - Journalist Meets Framebuilder
Draw some frames, build some jigs, buy some tubes, pick up the torch and get to it my friend. It's a long winter haha! My Formula SAE days were some of the best times with buddies.

Field Test: Kona Process 153 CR/DL 29
I'm 5'10", on the cusp, have a Med '16 134 (435mm reach) and tested a Lg '19 153 29er AL/DL (475mm reach). I initially felt like I was atop a tank. After riding for a few hours, I felt right at home on a Lg and appreciated the extra space to move around. Especially with the seat slammed to the top tube and out of the way, I could position my hips/body much easier on the 153. Some of that is attributed to longer dropper, some to reach, stack, standover, etc.. Another bonus is on switchback climbs my knees aren't hitting the bars. Sure a Lg is heavier, but it also comes with extra stability on the downs from the longer wheelbase. Oddly enough, a Large Altitude (452mm reach) felt uncomfortably large for me, despite having a shorter reach. I think that may have been in my head, due to the abusurdly low standover of the Process (818mm vs . 720mm resp.). ALSO, I have to say that having a reasonable BB height (346mm) on the Process is a godsend for hamfisted people like me. I had no pedal strikes while riding the 153 29er, while on the Lg Orbea Rallon (343/336mm w/ flip chip) I had half a dozen or more. Maybe some of that is sag, but having a 10mm higher BB is better for people like me. Partially why I still run a 160mm fork on my 134.

Local Flavors: The Complete Guide to Riding in Stowe, Vermont
Growing up in the NEK (snowboarding @ Burke), Stowe was always regarded as "high class" *cough*pretentious*cough*, perfectly described in this article as it's own "bubble". However, I now live on the other side of Mansfield and frequent these trails in the peak of summer. When I want flow (i.e. bermy machine built), this network has it. Florence was one of the first in the area AFAIK (not counting Kingdom). The big secret is... you can bypass all the touristy crap (or tour it with the family another time) and go ride sick trail... for free (not counting Trapps). STP, and specifically Cady Hill, was the first trail system I donated to, and also motivated my stingy a** to buy a VMBA membership. I got a Killington DH pass out of it among other things, which more than covered the cost of entry. In any case, supporting the rebuild of Florence alone was worth it.
