Lensbaby is a small Portland-based company that makes some non-traditional lenses for DSLR, mirrorless, and motion picture cameras to creative unique effects. That might mean a look with controlled blur or something like that tilt-shift look, but it can also be some crazy fisheye adapters. This latest lens is a circular 185° adapter that mounts onto the housing of a GoPro camera to give an all-new perspective to action cam footage. They’ve put this fun lens up on Kickstarter to get the ball rolling, so take a closer look at how it can make you rethink the look of riding footage…

Chasing-Trail_NC_Neko-Mulally

It really isn’t too often that we see well-produced mountain bike videos blowing down proper East Coast technical singletrack, so when we do we get pretty excited. We at Bikerumor have strong roots from our start in mountain biking and a couple of decades later still riding the rocky trails of the southern Appalachians, so seeing video like this gives us an especially strong urge to skip out of the office and go test some trail gear.

Scott prefaces their series with the idea of searching for the world’s best singletrack, so we welcome them into our backyard. In this second episode of the Chasing Trail series, their Gstaad-Scott DH team rider Neko Mulally heads into the Great Smokey Mountains to sample they technical western North Carolina trails and get reader for a season of racing.

Check out the unadulterated trail riding after the break, plus a look back at the last episode with Rémy Absalon hammering through Les Vosges singletrack in France…

Pro mountain biker Rebecca Rusch has just come back this spring from a pretty unique trip to raise money and awareness for World Bicycle Relief.

Find out more about her adventure and bike, and check out the footage they shot on the way…

Taga 2.0 brings flexible family cargo bike to the masses

Taga-2-0_affordable-cargo-bike_2-kids

A lot of cyclists would probably like to have the hauling capacity of a cargo bike, and plenty of parents can get behind the idea of lugging kids around in a Dutch box bike. But when it comes down to it, the cost of entry is so high, and the bikes are so big and unwieldy that it is usually pretty hard to justify. Enter Taga, the company that developed a convertible stroller that could do double or even triple duty as a kid-hauling bike or cargo bike.

They’ve now developed a new iteration that simplifies things a bit, but still keep all of the good bike functionality. In the process the new Taga 2.0 drops in price by around a third, putting it in reach for a lot more cyclists. Taga took their new family bike to Kickstarter to get it off the ground, and has had a pretty unbelievable response. See how you can get in on the action too, plus full details on the bike after the break…

There are few people in the cycling world as recognizable as Danny MacAskill. While many pros obtain stratospheric levels of fame and notoriety within the world of cycling, few can boast that even non-cyclists have shared their videos and know their name. And yet, Danny still manages to be one of the most approachable geniuses on a bike you’re likely to meet – which is surely part of why he’s so popular with fans. Shortly after the brick of time Magura had arranged for one on one interviews, Danny was out front signing autographs. The crowd was so big that Magura had to shut it down so Danny could get onto his next obligation.

While his skills on a bike have catapulted him into the spotlight, they also brought on an increasingly heavy schedule of demos, appearances, and rides befitting an international celebrity. Fortunately, we had enough time to sit down with Danny and pick his brain a bit about a number of things, including what he carries around the world, set backs along the way, and what’s coming next…
