Car-free Sundays are the norm in Colombia's capital city, Bogot

Imagine your city without cars — every single Sunday. At first, you might be frustrated by the inconvenience and inability to complete errands, but once you embrace the throngs of bikes, recognize your friends and neighbors among the people out for a stroll or attend a Zumba class at what was once a congested intersection, it’s likely to become one of your favorite traditions. For 45 years, the Colombian city of Bogotá has closed its major roads for Ciclovía, a weekly event where cyclists and p...

Review: Otso Waheela C is a Swiss Army gravel bike that can do almost anything

If you’ve read my other stories about Otso, you’re probably aware that I’m a big fan of their Voytek fat bike. Mostly, that comes from the narrow Q-factor with the ability to run multiple tire sizes thanks to some clever engineering and their Tuning Chip dropout system. So when I heard that they were bringing […] The post Review: Otso Waheela C is a Swiss Army gravel bike that can do almost anything appeared first on Bikerumor.

Review: Canyon Neuron AL trail mountain bike is easy to ride, hard to fault

The trail bike category is hot, but most of the options are aiming at the aggressive rider that’s looking for big bike performance in a lighter package. The other end of the spectrum is someone looking for a fun bike that handles like a regular mountain bike, perhaps someone coming from XC but looking for […] The post Review: Canyon Neuron AL trail mountain bike is easy to ride, hard to fault appeared first on Bikerumor.

First Ride Review: 2019 Marin Mount Vision enduro / all-mountain bike

The all-new 2019 Marin Mount Vision came back after short hiatus to become their go-to enduro ripper. With a design that’s far more aggressive than the Wolf Ridge, it favors all-out speed while providing snappy, playful handling. Combine that with a very unique suspension platform, and we had to find out: Is this the new […] The post First Ride Review: 2019 Marin Mount Vision enduro / all-mountain bike appeared first on Bikerumor.

Review: Big is the perfect descriptor for Why Cycles’ Big Iron Fat Bike

By now, you’ve probably seen the news that Adam Miller has started another bike company with his friends, Revel Bikes. But while the Revel team was focused on getting the new bikes across the finish line, I was riding another one of their products – the Why Cycles Big Iron. And it is big. Remember when […] The post Review: Big is the perfect descriptor for Why Cycles’ Big Iron Fat Bike appeared first on Bikerumor.

First Ride Review & Actual Weight – 2019 Niner RIP9 RDO mountain bike

Niner did a lot of things differently when it launched the all-new, completely redesigned RIP 9 RDO. It was billed as the longest, lowest, slackest bike they’d ever made. It got distinct, dedicated frames for both 29er and 27.5″ wheels. It moved the brake hose internal. It’s their first bike with a geometry-changing flip-chip. And […] The post First Ride Review & Actual Weight – 2019 Niner RIP9 RDO mountain bike appeared first on Bikerumor.

First Ride Review: 2019 Salsa Horsethief trail bike is no one-trick pony

With 29” wheels, 120mm of rear travel and a 140mm fork Salsa Cycles’ 2019 Horsethief is a well-rounded trail machine. I got to ride the Carbon NX Eagle model on Arizona’s Black Canyon Trail, and felt like I just scratched the surface of the bike’s abilities. With ample squish and a solid pedaling linkage, the […] The post First Ride Review: 2019 Salsa Horsethief trail bike is no one-trick pony appeared first on Bikerumor.

First Ride Review: The race-inspired 2019 Salsa Cycles Spearfish is fast, but still fun

If you were to design a bike specifically for a 50-mile race that’s mostly comprised of singletrack trails, I bet it would look something like Salsa Cycles’ Spearfish. In fact, that’s exactly how the Spearfish came to be – After riding the Dakota Five-O on a different 29er, one of Salsa’s engineers went to the […] The post First Ride Review: The race-inspired 2019 Salsa Cycles Spearfish is fast, but still fun appeared first on Bikerumor.

Howdy pardner… you lookin’ to rustle up a good time on just about any trail?

Review: Litespeed Ultimate Gravel Bike – Chattanooga-Made Titanium

Litespeed is one of the better known companies producing titanium bicycles in the United States. They were among the earliest companies to mass produce titanium bicycles but not the first, that honor arguably belongs to Teledyne Titanium during the 1970’s. At that time, commercial grades of titanium were the norm in titanium frame production, but […] The post Review: Litespeed Ultimate Gravel Bike – Chattanooga-Made Titanium appeared first on Bikerumor.

Surly powers up Big Easy electric cargo bike to carry your kids (or 300 beers)

Surly has a new e-bike, and it’s actually pretty cool. Granted, those are words that I never expected to type, but it’s true. When you consider the purpose of the newest Surly, the addition of pedal-assist not only makes sense, but it seems like a perfect fit. That’s because the Big Easy is, you guessed […] The post Surly powers up Big Easy electric cargo bike to carry your kids (or 300 beers) appeared first on Bikerumor.

Everything you need to know about GM’s new electric bikes

General Motors announced last year it was getting into the electric bike business. But besides a crowdsourcing name competition and a few teasers, details were scant. Now, GM has given this new brand a name — ARĪV — as well as names for its two electric bikes, and some information about its go-to-market plan. The name ARĪV was selected as part of a global crowdsourcing campaign announced in November 2018. The bikes GM is bringing two new electric “connected” bikes to market this year — one fol...

First Look: Santa Cruz Blur TR checks in for XC oriented fun on the trails

Given the incredibly efficient designs of today’s trail and enduro bikes, it’s easy to overlook the world of XC bikes. Unless you’re racing, you wouldn’t want something with short travel and skinny tires. Right? One look at the new Santa Cruz Blur TR suggests that this couldn’t be farther from the truth.

Review: Mondraker Foxy RR SL 27.5 is as fast as it is light

When it comes to mountain bike geometry, longer and slacker head tube angles and steeper seat tube angles seems to be the common theme these days. But while other brands are just stretching out, Mondraker has been pushing the limits of geometry for years. In 2012, Mondraker’s Forward Geometry was taken to the extreme with […] The post Review: Mondraker Foxy RR SL 27.5 is as fast as it is light appeared first on Bikerumor.

Review: Look 785 Huez is an affordable, race-ready climber’s road bike

Once you get past Look’s gorgeously designed 795 series with their flowingly integrated stem designs, you land at the 785 Huez. Here, the tube and triangle shapes are more traditional, and the spec goes from a fancy “RS” level 790g carbon frame with eTap or Di2, down to the very affordable standard 785 Huez with […] The post Review: Look 785 Huez is an affordable, race-ready climber’s road bike appeared first on Bikerumor.

Review: Rocky Mountain’s 2019 Instinct Alloy 50 BC Edition tames the wild West

If anyone’s going to dub a bike a ‘BC Edition’, it should be built to tackle the kind of terrain that British Columbia is best known for – rocky, rooty single track with plenty of steep chutes and big slabs. With 29” wheels, 155mm of travel and a lively rear linkage, this bike rolls over bumps […] The post Review: Rocky Mountain’s 2019 Instinct Alloy 50 BC Edition tames the wild West appeared first on Bikerumor.

Review: Niner JET 9 RDO proves bigger does make a better trail bike

I need to start this review with two statements. First, that I’ve ridden every generation of Niner JET 9 since their very first 80mm travel, round-tubed little alloy XC race bike, all the way up to this modern 120mm trail bike. And second, that I really did not want to like this new version, and […] The post Review: Niner JET 9 RDO proves bigger does make a better trail bike appeared first on Bikerumor.

Canyon Neuron CF connects with more riders for XC / Trail riding fun

Canyon’s latest bike is a bit of a departure from the industry’s longer, slacker, more aggro mantra lately. It’s not that Canyon thinks those longer, slacker, and more aggressive bikes don’t have their place. It’s just that they feel a lot of riders would benefit from something a bit more relaxed.
