Chipps

Singletrack Editor

Chipps wasn’t around for the dawn of mountain biking in the UK, but he likes to claim that he arrived in time for second breakfast (about the time he shows up for work, then…) starting in the bike trade in 1990 and becoming a full time mountain bike journalist at the start of 1994. Over the subsequent quarter century, he has seen mountain bike culture flourish and diversify and bike technology go from rigid steel frames to fully suspended carbon fibre (and sometimes back to rigid steel as well.)

His riding style is best described as ‘medium, wheels on the ground, trail riding’ though he’s been spotted doing everything from endurance downhill racing to 24 hour cross country racing. He favours mid-travel trail bikes and claims to be wheel-size, gear, brake and tyre agnostic. In fact, his garage spans most bicycle flavours, taking in steel hardtails, carbon trail bikes, even a mountain bike tandem, along with road, touring and gravel/cyclocross bikes.

While he’s happy to chat about bikes all day, his real interest is in the people and places that bikes can introduce you to and he talks as fondly about the trails he’s ridden and riders he’s met as the bikes that took him there.

    this doesn’t sell the idea of going premier to me

    Whats that Husker Du tyre about then?

    “Here’s another load of photos that we’ve not had time to caption yet”
    The idea is that they’ll all get captioned in the next day or so and run as regular Singletrack stories, but in the meantime, you get a look at what’s coming up. We also have some Premier videos that’ll be appearing here too. You’ll get to see everything in the end anyway, but Premier users just get a bit of a sneak peek first.

    The Husker Du is a new tyre from a new company that’s going to be specializing in snow stuff. I’m off to see them today.

    Why does the first comment on every article always have to be a moan. Seriously, if you don’t like it move along. No one’s forcing you to sit staring at the screeen.

    Any chance you can find out if they have a european/uk importer.

    If no one was interested in this stuff, then I could have my Subway dinner before 10pm 🙂

    The Husker Du is from a company called 45NRTH, based in Minneapolis, specializing in snow and ice tyres. 45NRTH.com

    I alread know that from MTBR fatbike forum. ;o)

    I’d like to know about getting them in the uk/europe though.

    WTF is going on with the colour scheme on the qinta roo?

    What’s the Kenda between the Slant and the Excavator? Looks sort of Ardenty.

    Great night out, lager, curry, shots, kebab and recreational pharmacuticals, bit of dad dancing then throw up in a back alley…. oh, thats the Quintana Roo paint job…

    “What’s the Kenda between the Slant and the Excavator? Looks sort of Ardenty.”

    It’s a Nexcavator… http://www.kendausa.com/en/home/bicycle/mountain/nexcavator.aspx

    i *do* like what singletrack does online and ok it sounds like a moan but it was just coming from worrying about the online business model – i would go “pro” and divert my money from the paper purchases but just not totally sold that the spirit is there

    anyway, back to staring at the screen in another window
