Videos of the week: The first carbon bikes, J. Maunsell shreds the Percept 200, & Speedvagen Rider Highlight


When were the first carbon bikes made? I, an industry lifer, would assume the early to mid 80’s at the soonest since carbon didn’t make it to mass production until the late 80’s to 90’s. Seeing this video made my jaw drop, though it made sense given the non-bike companies involved.

Check out the video above from Rumor pal Kevin Neidorf for a history lesson, then click past the break to see Jonathan Maunsell ripping the new Kona Percept 200 in Switzerland and Speedvagen’s rider highlight on racer and real person, Laura Winberry….

Clothing Roundup: Gravity Anomaly, Mission Workshop & Cycology have you looking good on any ride

gravity-anomaly-2016-mountain-bike-baggie-shorts-jersey

Looking for some new threads? We reviewed Gravity Anomaly’s ultra durable Boardroom jersey and Teamster XC shorts last year and left impressed. New items on the block are their Disrupter shorts which take the full coverage aesthetics of their Longhaul gravity shorts with a fit closer to their Teamster XC shorts. They are constructed with a 4-ply military grade 4.2oz nylon shell with 1/4″ double needle stitching throughout making for one robust pair of shorts. The Disrupter shorts retail for $95.

The Agent Mountain Bike Jersey (center), is a handsome casual t-shirt great for on or off the trail. Improvements for 2016 include an improved quick-dry polyester, a longer body, and slightly more relaxed sizing, so be sure to check their sizing chart when ordering. All made in USA. The Agent jersey retails for $49

If you really like both of these items, Gravity Anomaly is having a sale right now letting you buy these together for only $115!
