Intense Bikes helped to define a new era of mountain biking with the introduction of the original Tracer. Almost 20 years later, Intense is launching their latest version of the Tracer, and it is still defining how capable and efficient a long travel all mountain bike can be. We got our hands on a test bike, and gave it a good flogging. See what we thought of this latest iteration of a legend.
We got the chance to sling a leg over Yeti's latest super bike, the 29" SB-5.5c. After a solid chunk of miles and mixed terrain this 140mm bike has succeeded in breaking our preconceptions of what long travel 29ers can do. Take a look inside to see how this rig performed.
Recently, Ibis invited me to their Mojo 3 launch in Santa Cruz. Since I got back, I've been annoying anyone who will listen to me about how Ibis has re-invented the wheel. So, I thought I should put my obsessed rantings into words and share them with the world.
