Recommendation: Specialized Levo FSR 6fattie

Recommendation: Specialized Levo FSR 6fattie

"When designing the Turbo Levo FSR 6Fattie, we started by building a trail bike with all the hallmarks that our mountain bikes are known for, while streamlining the design for full integration of our Turbo technology. This means that you get a roomy top tube for an easy fit, ultra-short chainstays for nimble handling, and a low bottom bracket that makes the bike feel glued to the trail. Then comes the efficient and powerful Turbo technology, mating the battery and motor into the M5 frame in a new way. The exclusive, custom-tuned motor smoothly and quietly puts out up to 530 watts of additional power to the pedals  ... "

4 Reviews - 2017 Honzo CR Trail Carbon

4 Reviews - 2017 Honzo CR Trail Carbon

"Full squish bikes may get all the attention these days, but nothing compares to riding a hardtail on the trail, and the Honzo CR Trail is perhaps the one bike that can steal the limelight. Its aggressive stance, nimble-handling carbon frame and mischievous attitude are characteristics that were born on Pacific Northwest trails ... "

Review: Specialized Camber Comp Carbon 29 | BIKE Magazine

Review: Specialized Camber Comp Carbon 29 | BIKE Magazine
"SE: on anything less than S-Works, we are always trying to strike a balance between cost and performance. The Comp Carbon does a particularly great job by offering a good percentage of the performance of the S-Works, while greatly reducing cost via smart component spec, such as the same carbon front triangle used on the S-Works except with an alloy rear triangle. The same Roval Traverse wheels, except alloy instead of carbon. It's a tough package to beat for the price." Review: Specialized Camb...

Specialized FatBoy - A True 4 Season Bike

Specialized FatBoy - A True 4 Season Bike
Paul and I were discussing the Specialized Fatboy this week. He's been riding the fat tire bike during the summer on our group rides and can keep up in general. In some conditions he has a bit of an advantage with superior traction in corners and off camber sections. As well, they're just fun to ride. His comment, "this is truly a 4 season bike." The possibilities are endless when riding the Fatboy. Specialized describes the FatBoy this way: "Fun-loving riders like you are looking for a bike for...

Review: Kona Dew

Review: Kona Dew
This is the Kona Dew which is one of our best selling entry level bikes simply because it is so versatile. I call this the urban blaster. You can cruise with the family. You can go out for a fitness ride. People will use it as a inter-city commuter. You can't kill this bike and yet it is comfortable. It is laid out similar to a mountain bike in the sense it is sporty but it is also comfortable. You can always change where the handlebars are. We do that for most people. But the price-point, these...

Specialized Stumpjumper FSR 650B Reviews

Specialized Stumpjumper FSR 650B Reviews
"After one ride on the all-new Stumpjumper FSR Expert Carbon 6Fattie, you'll never be riding trail again. It's a bold statement to make, but the increase in traction, control, and floatation that our 6Fattie Wheel System provides is nothing short of revolutionary. And then, of course, there's the rest of the bike. It features our FACT 9m carbon fiber for the bulk of the construction in order to provide an ultra-lightweight, strong, and stiff frame. The carbon molding process also allowed us to r...

Review: Kona Rove

Review: Kona Rove
Review: Kona Rove I've been riding the titanium version of the Kona Rove , the "Ti Rove", for about 4 months now. The freedom this bike affords and encourages is amazing if you allow yourself to explore.  Even in the peak mountain bike and road riding season, I'll jump on the Rove  up to 3 times a week due to its adventurous nature. The freedom this bike affords and encourages is amazing if you allow yourself to explore. Like any good cross bike, it is both fast and rugged, but the Kon...
