SPECIALIZED FUSE PRO RIDE #2


This bike’s first ride turned into a mess of crusty/melty snow and slick mud. Not impressive.

Friday night’s adventure? Rad!

It showed what this bike can do.

THREE DAYS ON A PIVOT MACH 4 CARBON


Last weekend in Arizona I trained 38 high school coaches and worked with 11 shredders like you.

The coach training was held at Pivot Cycles headquarters and … you know … when in Rome … so I rocked the new Pivot Mach 4 Carbon all weekend.

EARLY IMPRESSIONS: SPECIALIZED SLAUGHTER TIRE


Many of you are running Specialized Butcher tires on the fronts of your all-mountain/enduro bikes.

The Butcher is a versatile and dependable choice. But what do you run in back, especially if you want faster rolling?

“DOWNGRADING” TO A RIGID SINGLE SPEED?


Hi Lee,

I’m only asking because I highly value your opinion!

As an adult sometimes I have to make adult decisions. In the next few months we are looking to move and bit a bigger house, so I’m thinking of freeing up some cash by selling my current ride. It’s not imperative that I do it, but it would help a bit.

I would still want something to ride in the meantime, and I don’t want an entry level bike necessarily. Looking at some options and the Crave SL single speed looks interesting and a good price. It might be fun and a new realm to try something like this for my FL XC trails.

What do you think, is having a single speed as an only bike for a few months a good idea? Is it possible to still pursue some off season structured training and continue pump up the base and later PTPI?

Thank you!

Greg
