All-City adds yet another fine dirt machine to their lineup with the updated Space Horse Disc. Adding disc brakes for maximum stoppage in any weather and a more fitting 650b geo on smaller sizes this thing rips better than ever. These will be hitting dealers next month but in the meantime you can peep all the details here!
With cross season just around the corner I was beyond stoked when local heroes Squid Bikes offered up one of their Rattlecan rigs to give a go. Albeit a demo ride, this second version of their popular CX frame came built up with Force Hydro and a fine set of shoes by way of Portland’s Hi-Fi wheels. I’ve only had it about a week but with it’s glossy Spray.Bike finish and how well it eats dirt I’m already loving it. Much more on the way after spending some more time with it!
The Bros at Brother Cycles recently got things in order for their Spring/Summer 2016 gear. Adding a few new frames and a handful of accessories this just might be their best collection yet. The Kepler Disc and Swift are looking dialed thought its the new R725 that really caught my eye. Always a soft spot for lugged frames and the pearlescent/sparkle paint options pop in the spring sun. Roll over to see the new bag of goodies and peep their ’16 catalog here!
With a mix of indoor and outdoor riding the 2016 SSCX Euro Champs looked nothing short of exciting. Laps, beers and plenty of smiling faces in this recap from the Bombtrack crew. That bike pile at the start definitely looked a bit tricky to navigate…
Bombtrack teamed up with a slew of fine brand this year for a custom Arise CX build in conjunction with Berlin Bicycle Week. The trade show is host to the Singlespeed Cyclocross European Champs and this bad boy will be on display to commemorate the event. From the Rotor drivetrain to the FFWD and Wound Up carbon this thing is beyond dialed. Click through for a nice gallery and hit Bombtrack for more!
Just a quick mix from last weekend’s ride out to Woodland then Davis before looping back home. Only a bit over 5o miles but we brought along some toys and made a few pit stops along the way…definitely a prime Saturday on the bike!

After talking about it for some time my dude Jonathan and I decided to set out for the 80+ mile loop from Sac up to Auburn. Some free time over the weekend and mild temps made for a good time to take the Thunderbird up to the hills. Was a hot one but we pushed on for a long break at the river a a couple cold ones. Now to do it on the track bike!
Though I spend a lot of time cruising something fixed it’s always good to have a few bikes in the stable for those “other” rides. Given the chance to test out State‘s newest addition to their Off Road Division a la the 2015 Thunderbird I couldn’t pass! With the option to roll single speed or toss on a cassette this versatile cross rig opens the door to a slew of adventures. I’ve already got a few trips planned and with the expected abuse around town Thunderbird will be seeing some miles…stay tuned for the full review!
