With a ride somewhere between a true road and long distance touring bike plus rack mounts and big tire clearance, the Space Horse could take you on some epic journeys.

Now, All City is teaching an old horse new tricks with the new disc brake model. In addition to improved stopping, the frame offers a few new details which should take this horse out of this world…

As the Tour de France edges closer to its arrival in Paris in just a weeks time, 126 women of the pro peloton are looking forward to their chance to once again ride on the biggest stage in cycling as they will race the 2016 version of La Course. Taking place on the same 7km finishing circuit that the men’s sprinters will hit just before sunset the women will race back and forth along the relatively smooth cobbles of the Champs-Élysées as they take in the 89km UCI Women’s WorldTour race.

Tech talk on the new Easton EC90 SL carbon cranks & bottom brackets

2017 Easton EC90 SL carbon fiber crankset tech details

Earlier this week, Easton unveiled their re-entry into the carbon crankset market.
