UK retailer Go Outdoors debuts several new High-value, Low-price Calibre bikes

Calibre-bikes_Dune_Go-Outdoors-UK_affordable-aluminum_fat-bike_front-3-4

Our readers outside of the UK probably don’t know Go Outdoors, but they put together several bikes under their house Calibre brand that offer a lot of bang for your buck, so are definitely worth a look, especially for entry-level bikes. Plus from their online shop, international delivery to a very long list of countries is just £10 extra. Outside of the EU taxes and import duties come into play, but have a look if you are in the market for a high value bike. Pretty much everything is made of workingman aluminum, but with some decent spec across categories. There is a fat bike, kid’s bike, a women’s road bike, a 27.5″ hardtail, and even a cross bike. Hop past the break for details and pricing…

EB15 Randoms: A little of everything from a Kid’s Fat Bike to a Posh e-Bike

Early-Rider_Trail-Runner-XL_14x2-5inch-tires_aggressive-trail-push-balance-bike

There really is any kind of bike you can imagine for every possible rider type at Eurobike. We have been regularly filing reports on the bikes and gear we found wandering the halls for the last month and a half. As the week and our Eurobike coverage nears their ends, we’ve compiled a selection of bikes worthy of a look, even if they didn’t warrant a post of their own.

When we think of the first bikes from Early Rider, it’s bikes like the Trail Runner XL that come to mind. At 150£ the mother-of-all balance bikes gets an aluminum frame, massive 14×2.5″ rubber to roll over anything, and even a steering dampener/limiter to help out when the trail runs out. But Early Rider does a lot more in light and smart bikes to get kids pedaling and out riding too.

Come past the break to see more of the bigger Early Rider bikes, plus stand outs from Bergamont, Open, Silverback, and Lapierre…

When One Isn’t Enough – Ryan Williams Lands First BMX Triple Front Flip

nitro circus first bmx triple front flip

How big will BMX riders be able to go? That apparently just depends on how big they are able to build the jumps over at Pastranaland. In preparation for the next Nitro Circus Tour and in the never ending quest to go bigger, Ryan Williams and Andrew Ahumada decided it was time for someone to land the first ever BMX triple front flip. The race to landing the trick involved some gnarly crashes but in the end, it was Ryan Williams who finally sticks a near perfect landing…

We’re nearing the end of our massive coverage of Eurobike 2015 and still deep in all that is Interbike. Catlike has you covered head to toe with new helmets and shoes, Dean Titanium Expands line, and all kinds of new light options from Blackburn and Nightrider.

It’s Fall, so reach in the back of the fridge and take out that six-pack of smooth craft pumpkin ale with a hint of nutmeg spice, burn it with fire, and skip over to a worthy dark smoky stout to enjoy our in-depth coverage.

Obstacle Races, Cycling Legends, & Live Music – At CLIF Bar’s Cykle-Scramble Anything can Happen… & Probably Will

CykleScramble-37

Pirates, Prisoners, and Furries were in abundance at CLIF Bar’s 2015 Cykle-Scramble (prounced: see-kul skrambul) at the Marin County Fairgrounds in San Rafael, California. This wasn’t just a race with normal participants…. I’m pretty sure, “normal” participants weren’t even allowed. Even the cycling celebrities “participating” were about as far from normal as one could get. To add to this spectator-heavy event, there were food trucks galore, great beer, and live music being head lined by none other than Cold War Kids.

Ramble on past the table jumps, wall rides, pump tracks and blood stained dirt, (there was a “yard sale” award after-all), to see all that is Cykle-Scramble….

IB15: GT Bicycles shows off pristine Pro Freestyle RAD Movie replica bike

GT-Pro-Freestyle-RAD-movie-replica-bmx-bike01

As RAD celebrates its 30th anniversary, GT Bicycles was lucky enough to have a fan reach out to say they had a restored Pro Freestyle like the one in the movie and ask if they’d be interested in displaying it in their Interbike booth. Sure, why not, right? But sight unseen, expectations were cautiously optimistic. No one had any idea it would be a damn perfect replica of the 1986 bike from the movie.

Check out a few detail pics and other highlights from their BMX line, below…

100 pct (4)

100% has been showing their Aircraft helmet with full carbon/kevlar composite shell since back in April at the Sea Otter Classic, and are finally ready for it to take off. As you would expect it is light, and no doubt stylish, but it’s also built to be as safe as it is functional.

Gap past the break to see what all went into this carbon/kevlar beauty and why it’s still a product of function over fashion…

IB15: SE Racing Rips a Big One With The Fat Ripper, their New BMX Inspired Fat Bike

Fat Ripper-1

When you think you’ve seen it all… and then something new comes along to blow your mind – that is pretty much what I went through when I saw SE Racing’s “Fat Ripper”. In a sea of fatbikes, this thing stood out like nothing else in the oversize category at Interbike as this is not a BMX bike for riding in the snow….. though you could!

Rip past the break to see this rad beast up close and some shots and videos of former pro BMX’er and long time SE Racing Brand Manager, Todd Lyons showing us how it’s done…
