The OutRider 4 – a world-class four-hour mountain bike endurance event – at the Outsider Festival on Sunday 28 June 2009
Titanium. Three piece. 31.8mm clamp. 710mm width. Flipping light. Flipping expensive. Regular sweep. Or crazy mega-sweep (as in the pics).
Our (other) favourite groupset now comes in half of the colours of the rainbow… Red, Green, Gold, Pink and Orange… Ideal for matching or clashing with all the other coloured bits of your bike.
New Lynskey-built frame announced by Brant Richards, ex On-one and now with Shedfire. He still doesn’t have a brand-name though.
The festival’s first ever jump skills session takes to Forestry Commission Sacotland’s dirt jump park near Nevis Range base station, Fort William, from 9am on Saturday 14 March.
The next installment of DMR Bikes’ “Trail Exchange” is now online. The DMR boys recently went over to Germany and produced a film with their friends over there. Some very fun “big BMX” riding vids…
The theme for issue 48 is “Roots/Beginnings”. Centring on the beginnings of the sport, the beginnings of our own riding and the bikes and places we used to ride.
On the reviews front we have a feature called “Handbags” which is about the contents of different types of riders’ rucksacks.
Bikes reviewed: Orange ST4, Commencal Super 4, Turner 5 Spot, Cannondale Moto Carbon, Scott Genius, Kona Ute and an update on our Long Term Test Bikes.
2009 will once again have two Bikefests and as in the previous year they will both be supported by long-standing sponsor Kona bikes.
It’s back. More fresh goods from Salsa, Dakine, Royal Racing, Bontrager, Torq, Tektro, Vredestein, Lifeventure, Orange, Outland and Red Bull Rampage…
Well done to our bearded pal in coming 4th in the Iditarod Trail Invitational in the worst snow they’ve ever had… The final stage involved a 40 HOUR push through waist-deep snow.
