28 inch Wheels, 188mm Dropouts, and 11-53t Cassette – If you like Standards, You’ll Love This….


The Roost Carbon steps a little A LOT outside the box to give you everything you want…. or don’t want in a bike.  Many think new standards come about too fast, but apparently some don’t think they come fast enough, or that there shouldn’t even be any standards.

Flip out past the break and see what all makes the Roost Carbon…..


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…

Shaky Videos No More – Slick’s Motorized Steadycam takes GoPro Footage to new Heights

Slick 1

Getting that perfect shot is difficult for just about anybody short of a professional videographer, and it’s no easy task for them either. One of the biggest challenges with video is trying to hold the camera still so your footage doesn’t resemble The Blair Witch Project and give all of your friends motion sickness. When you see some of the professionally done videos, the things you don’t see are the rigs they build just to get that smooth, steady shot.

The folks at Slick believe they have come up with solution that will all but perfect your action videos taken with your GoPro. Head past the break and check out the pretty ingenious little gadget they came up with….


Learning Curve: Redbull Hardline Rears its Ugly Head on Practice Day

Learning Curve 2

We brought you Gee and Dan Atherton’s preview to the Redbull Hardline course that was obviously a brutal challenge for even the best of the best of the best considering all of Gee’s gut wrenching gasps on many of the landings. In fact, his equally talented brother Dan, the course’s creator, is out of the event due to crashing on one of the bigger jumps during a practice run resulting in a fractured scapula.

If you were able to make it through that first video unscathed, crawl past the break to see how all of the non-Athertons faired during practice on the spirit crushing course. You may actually want to wear your gear for this one….


Ellsworth brand video teases new suspension, new models

with Interbike just around the corner, brands big and small are sending out the teasers in droves. The latest is from Ellsworth, who’s right around the year anniversary of their acquisition by BST Nano. This video is more about the brands story and where theyre headed (U.S. carbon manufacturing!), but in it youll catch glimpses of a revised suspension design, which is a pretty big deal for a brand that’s stuck to its guns for decades, and a new fat bike.

We’ll have full coverage from the show, stay tuned…

Video: How Fox DPS shock damping works

We’ve illustrated cutaways before, but nothing beats video for understanding how shock damping systems work. This one, from Fox, shows how their DPS (Dual Piston System) diverts oil flow through various ports and shim stacks to control the compression and rebound rates.
