Shredits: Guatemala with Hans Rey, Coldwater Mountain with Eric Porter, Fat Bikes, Domestiques, and the Syndicate

In honor of our recent bike check with the legend, we’re kicking off this Friday with the latest adventure from Hans Rey. Heading out with Tom Oehler to the highlands of Guatemala, the duo split their time between riding the remote country side and working with Hans’ charity Wheels 4 Life. Continuing their mission to provide bicycles to people around the world with no other means of transportation, Wheels 4 Life has donated 7110 bikes to date. That’s 7110 lives changed by the simple power of 2 wheels. Pretty rad.

There’s plenty more to see next…


Hero4 Session Is the Smallest, Lightest, Easiest To Use GoPro Yet

Gopro hero 4 session camer pov  (3)

Every time there is a new version of a GoPro or action camera you can usually count on another quantum leap in technology. Compared to the original GoPro, the latest tech makes that first camera look like a toy you would get from a department store. But in spite of the hardware capable of putting out professional level cinematography, most of your average users are asking for something else. Namely, a camera that is smaller and easier to use.

If features like smaller, lighter, and easier to use are more important to you than things like 4K and having the most megapixels, you’ll want to check out the Session next…

You didn’t know FSA made chains? Apparently you’re not alone, which is why FSA is making a push to get the word out on their new complete range of 9, 10, and 11 speed options…


Must Watch: Martyn Ashton Rides Again In “Back On Track,” the Best Downhill Video

When Martyn Ashton of Road Bike Party fame was paralyzed from the waist down due to a career ending wreck, there was never any doubt in his mind that he would get on a bike again. “I’m a bike rider and I can’t do anything about it… Having an injury like this doesn’t turn it off. It just makes me want it more.” In this video, Martyn gets electrical taped into his modified Mojo Nicolai Geometron and does a downhill run with Blake Samson and Road Bike Party 2 riders Danny MacAskill and Chris Akrigg. And you can see the pure joy in his face.

Check out the Interview with Martyn plus the break down of his Pro Bike from GMBN next…


Must Watch: Brumotti – Road Bike Freestyle 2

All of the aero and comfort features in the world won’t help you ride like Vittorio Brumotti. Truthfully though, nothing will. We can’t see many riders mountain or road pulling off some of these moves. Don’t look down…

Must Watch: Jeff Kendell-Weed Shreds the Pacific Northwest

Lately mountain biking has been in nearly constant supply of entertaining riding clips, but when there’s a new edit featuring Jeff Kendell-Weed, it’s hard not to take notice. Thanks to an unnatural level of bike control, Jeff manages to make his Ibis do things most of us could only dream of. If the silky smooth riding style doesn’t get you amped, there are gratuitous manuals, nose wheelies, and even a 270 to keep you entertained.
