It’s been said the Sam Hill has an upright riding style, and that he doesn’t follow the “hinge low and stay low” rules. I agree. To my eye, Sam gets his shoulders as low as he has to — and no lower. You often see this practice in top riders. It saves energy and, I think, […]

Today a RideLogic bike setup client reached out wondering which size Ibis Ripmo to buy. I did a fit for his Mojo HD3 a while back — and he loves it — so I have good numbers for him. The results:

Climbing, ladders, etc. blow me out pretty quickly. My heart rate goes anaerobic fairly fast and it generally ends in a […]

So fun! Bike: Specialized S-Works Fuse. This thing is so versatile.
Some wisdom from our friend Dr. Jason Richardson, who happens to be a BMX legend and world champion.
Here’s the full list.
Lee, Just a note to say thanks! I became a dad this year, so getting on actual trails hasn’t been a priority. But I’ve been working my way through Mastering Mountain Bike Skills, and I recently checked out the video that the guys from TrainerRoad put together about their clinic with you. After ~2 months […]
