First Look: Ergon CF3 Pro Carbon

In recent years, bicycle manufacturers have sunk lots of money into the endurance road category. These are bikes that, while still fast and light, are more compliant and comfortable than the average...

The Coaching Project

When I rolled to the finish of the AZT300 last April, I told myself I’d never do it again. You always say these things after completing an endurance feat. But this time I meant it.

First Look: Colnago C-59 Disc

The Colnago C-59 Disc made waves when it launched in 2012 because it was one of the first full-fledged race bikes to take advantage of the new disc brake technology.

First Look: Giro Terraduro

If the Pearl Izumi X-Project is the Subaru XV Crosstrek of crossover mountain bike shoes, the Giro Terraduro is one of those flashy new Landrovers.

As fat bikes continue to move from niche to mainstream, a few companies, like Fatback, are pushing the boundaries of the segment with beautiful, fast, and ridiculously light carbon fatties.

First Look: Pearl Izumi X-Project

The Pearl Izumi X-Project bridges the gap between soft hikers and stiff race models with their rigid carbon midsoles.

First Look: Cannondale Synapse Hi-Mod 2

Peter Sagan will race this radical, genre-bending frame design in his 2014 Belgian classics campaign. And if it’s good enough for Sagan…

Iditabike Records Tumble

Cyclists took advantage of little snow, high pressure, and hardpack conditions to lay down what may stand for a long time as the fastest Iditarod Trail Invitational ever.
