  1. What Bike to Buy
    So I have a 2020 Enduro Expert (S4) for my more DH/enduro trails and a Yeti SB130 (Lunch Ride, T2, XL) for trail/semi-enduro. The thing is I have never felt all that comfortable on the Enduro - I find it accelerates poorly, and is a bit of a pig to handle. You can plough over almost anything...

  3. What Bike to Buy
    I currently ride a 2020 Specialized Pitch Sport (hardtail and 27.5) Large. It's my dad's bike and he lets me borrow it a lot. It was never sized for me but for him (he is 1 inch shorter than me). I am 5'11. It fits me well. It may have me leaned over the bars a little much but besides that I...

    Jordan Villella's 2020 Gear of the Year Like most of the cycling world, I spent a lot of time on the trainer this year, less time racing, and a bunch of time re-discovering the sport I love so much. This meant riding bikes that I usually wouldn't be on at a particular time of year (no 'cross)...

    Specialized is known as an innovative company. One that pushes the envelope of materials and design. It seems the brand's team of engineers and product designers have been let loose to pour their collective resources into developing the lightest, most technologically advanced balance bike on the...
  10. Wheels and Tires
    Talk all you want about the benefits of upgrading wheels, brakes, or even your bike's entire drivetrain. But pound for pound (or gram for gram in this case), there is no better bang-for-buck upgrade than new mountain bike tires. After all, that spinning rubber is the only thing on your bike that...

    The Specialized Levo SL was just introduced and it is an intriguing addition to their E-Mtb line which includes the Levo and the Kenevo. We got to ride the Levo SL extensively during the product launch and it is something we've actually been asking for, a light, sub-40 lb ebike with less power...

    What is it? Last spring, Specialized resurrected the iconic Stumpjumper EVO nameplate, in the form of the solid and well-priced Comp Alloy model. The "63.5" head angle number stopped traffic as consumers and journalists alike said, "Whoah." We've seen that number before on a head tube but on a...

    What is it Three years ago, the Specialized Turbo Levo e-bike was introduced with 140mm of travel, plus tires, and a motor assist system that was better and more integrated than the competition. Three years later, the Turbo Levo is still very relevant - but the competition has caught up. The...
