solos-heads-up-display-for-cyclists-on-kickstarter

Launched at Interbike last year and now the official heads up display of USA Cycling’s Olympic contenders, the Solos micro display and sunglasses combo is now in production and on Kickstarter to let you get one for half off.

Suggested retail will be $500, but the crowdfunding campaign will let you nab one for as little as $250 if you act fast. As of this post, about half of the units available at that price are gone, and they’re halfway to meeting their goal just hours after going live. Check the video and more below…

Isla Bikes gets pro with new race-ready kids’ cyclocross and mountain bikes

isla bikes premium youth cyclocross bikes

The options for kids bikes just keep getting better,and we couldn’t be more excited…particularly when there’s a disc brake cyclocross on offer, filling in a category that’s been sorely deficient in youth sizes. And Isla Bikes has built not one, but three different wheel size options, fitting 8 year olds and up with 24″, 26″ and 700c options, and all equally ready for slicks to turn them into road bikes.

Add in an even wider spread of sizes for mountain bikes and you’ve got everything you need to get your kid across the finish line…

Rusch-Kilimanjaro_red-bull-media_climb

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. Together with adventurer Patrick Sweeney, Rusch packed her bike up on her back to make the pre-dawn start of the last ascent to the 5895m/19,341ft summit of Africa’s highest peak. Then they rode back down the technical terrain, raising a dollar for every foot of elevation, coming out to 131 new bikes for students in Africa with WBR. Rusch has worked with the charity since 2013 to provide bikes as a means of access to resources like education, healthcare and economic opportunities. Find out more about her adventure and bike, and check out the footage they shot on the way…

Long term Review: We take DVO’s super adjustable Diamond into the rough

2016-05-22 P1120225

2016-05-22 P1120225

DVO has made several green with envy since their entrance into the suspension marketplace. Though a somewhat new company, they really aren’t… well, in experience anyway. I was wrenching in a shop when mountain bike suspension first reared its springy head and recall when Marzocchi and the ultra-smooth & reactive Z1 Bomber entered the market. Everything on the market “worked”, but the Bomber was a performance game changer. Despite Marzocchi being a much smaller company, even with a few maintenance headaches and leaks, the Bombers just performed better. The founder of Marzocchi USA and the brainchild behind the Bomber line, (still considered one of the best performing forks of its day), Bryson Martin, along with many long time employees left the company due to struggles with the owner at the time, Tenneco, and soon after DVO was born. Quietly entering the almost monopolized market by the “big 2” was never their style and between the branding, their heritage, and that GREEN, it was game on… but does the performance back the hype?

Check out some of the ups and downs I had with the DVO Diamond and why it’s crucial to pay attention to the small details…

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…

Framed Bikes releases the 27.5+ Marquette in affordable aluminum

Framed Marquette aluminum 27.5+ bike

Framed-marquette-alum-white

Flipping through catalogues of $8000+ bicycles can get annoying pretty quick for average people who live on a budget, but thankfully there are a few cycling companies who appreciate the concepts of value and affordability. Framed bicycles is one of those brands, providing everything from fat bikes to commuters to BMX’s at very competitive prices.

Framed is clearly shooting to have an option for every kind of cyclist, so it’s no surprise to see them catering to the 27.5+ market with their Marquette bikes. Recently Bikerumor checked out two carbon Marquettes, which sell for about $2000 and $2200 MSRP. The aluminum versions have now been released, and as expected they’ve cut those prices even lower to tempt you to ‘plus’ another bike into your quiver…
