Last month at Interbike, bike industry trend-spotter and mountain biking pioneer Gary Fisher stepped onto the stage to announce the season’s best electric bike. “The growing e-bike category”, he said, “is going to be the next Big Thing.” To casual onlookers, Fisher sounded like he’d lost his marbles. After all, unless you live in New...

The Global Fat Bike Summit reported that fat bike sales doubled from 2011 to 2012, then doubled again from 2012 to 2013. The category is growing, and the ease with which the oversized tires float over sand, snow and technical rock sections is to thank. Whether you’re looking for something to ride casually through the winter months or a race monster, we’ve got five bikes to cover your needs.
Fat bikes can effortlessly glide over snowy conditions like a set of snowshoes, and they’re cushy enough for riding in frigid temps without shattering your frozen tuchus. But the bike can only take you so far. Staying warm and dry -- and returning home with all your fingers and toes -- requires the right set of gear for when the weather decides to take a serious turn for the worse. These winter fat biking essentials will help you battle the worst Mother Nature can throw your way.
Cyclocross racing pits riders on bikes with drop bars and knobby tires against each other on multi-lap courses over a mix of grass, dirt, pavement, sand, mud and sections that force riders to carry their bikes over barriers and up stairs and hills. Racers attack from the line, and the intensity doesn’t diminish for the duration of the 30- to 60-minute events -- it’s a redline-all-the-time, full-contact affair. With participation doubling over the past five years, it's also the fastest growing segment of competitive cycling in America. Some attribute this growth to the more laid-back, beer-primed environment at cyclocross races, but cool bikes certainly don't hurt. We've got three rigs that make the grade from the starter's gun well past the finish line.
Competing in endurance mountain bike racing requires a significant amount of time on the bike. There are days when you eat your breakfast and lunch on the go, get on your bike before the sun comes up and even get lost in the woods trying to find six hours worth of trails. We all settle into distinct collections of gear to make the bike our home, but for us, this kit offers the perfect blend of performance, durability and comfort.
If you’re riding a bike for exercise or hobby, chances are you’re clipping in and experiencing the pleasure of an efficient ride with optimal power transfer. Though we have three contact points with the bike -- pedals, saddle, bars -- the connection to the pedals via the shoes is the only one that’s mechanical, so it's essential that the shoe fits properly. There’s no single good choice -- there are a lot of them, at different budgets, with different materials and closures. We’ve picked out 10 road bike shoes that cover the spectrum, letting you become one with the bike. Namaste.
Cocoon Slim Backpack Backpacks hold a lot of stuff and they stay out of the way, leaving your hands free. Thing is, compartments that are actually cavernous holdalls turn ‘packs into bulky messes. SLIM is so named for a reason: all loaded up, this pack is only 3.5 inches thick. The back compartment is for...
For gearheads and Quantified Selfers triathlon is a chance to ride bikes that look like DARPA prototypes and collect more personal information about themselves than a Stasi collaborator, respectively; for Alphas it’s a chance to get ripped and grab bragging rights; for some people it’s just a fun way to get in shape. Whatever the reason, the tri gear is abundant. Sure, you could swim in your skivvies, hop on your Schwinn for the bike leg and run in some old Nike Mac Attacks -- but we'll do you one better with this kit.
'Tis the season to be tempted by a whole new model year of mountain bikes, and we've got some good news. Dialing in your own personal style of off-roading has never been easier -- once you wade through the overwhelming amount of options, that is. There's a different bike for just about every type of trail and rider, and even some that claim to do it all. You need a bike best suited to the kind of riding you enjoy, but that also won't keep you from the occasional change of pace (or any surprises the trails throw at you). As part of our week-long series on bikes to celebrate the launch of Limits, we've picked our favorites for racing enduro, downhilling, or just getting out for a weekend adventure ride.

The dictionary defines a bicycle as “a vehicle with two wheels in tandem, usually propelled by pedals connected to the rear wheel by a chain, and having handlebars for steering and a saddle like seat.” That certainly covers the gist of the invention, but after centuries of design evolution, the world of bikes has grown...
