by 0

Three bikes that take the short travel full suspension bike to another world.

Words Chipps Photography James Vincent

It’s a mixed-up, muddled-up, shook-up mountain bike world these days. We have long travel 29ers winning enduro races, 27.5in trail bikes that are slacker than downhill bikes from a mere few years ago. Even how and where riders are riding is changing. Road bikes are going off road, enduro racers are riding to the tops of mountains… and have you seen the state of cross-country World Cup racing these days? Those tracks are gnarly!

Singletrackworld's Editor At Large

With 23 years as Editor of Singletrack World Magazine, Chipps is the longest-running mountain bike magazine editor in the world. He started in the bike trade in 1990 and became a full time mountain bike journalist at the start of 1994. Over the last 30 years as a bike writer and photographer, he has seen mountain bike culture flourish, strengthen and diversify and bike technology go from rigid steel frames to fully suspended carbon fibre (and sometimes back to rigid steel as well.)
