Based on our quick MTB review at Interbike’s Dirt Demo, we have been extended a Marin mountain bike demo for a long term review. However, before I ride it and give you a full mountain bike review let me share what is actually coming out of that box.
I was amazed how well the Marin B17 bike handled! To start, it had a near telepathic handling character. Simply I would think about changing direction and the bike did it. Following that, I was amazed at how well its suspension operated. Even when thrown down rocky chutes or off camber, jagged turns, the B17’s suspension soaked up anything I threw at it. Even more, when it was time to turn the bike uphill, the suspension resisted bobbing and transferred all my pedaling efforts to find rear wheel traction.
I first saw the Flat Stopper tire sealant at Interbike. The flat Stopper booth had a wheel affixed to a stand that had a jagged spike that would puncture the tire if you pressed a lever. Based on this display, I needed to try this sealant myself. See what I discovered!
Mountain Bikes (MTB) may all look similar, however if you are planning on purchasing a new one there are some substantial differences between them. First lets take a look at the “It looks like a mountain bike” version, then we will look at a true mountain bike.
With winter here for a few more months it is not uncommon for cabin fever to set in. Many of us use this time of year to head off to a warm riding destination to get out of the cold and kick-starting the spring season a little early. While the list of warm biking destinations is nearly endless, here are a few that can be extra fun. Read on to learn, where to go and how to get there.
I have been using a commuter bike almost exclusively for the past twenty years and have seen many people put off commuting by bicycle because they felt they didn’t have the right bike. But, many don’t realize that the right equipment is closer than many think and may already be hanging in your garage.
In the following description, picture yourself riding the Mississippi River Trail (MRT) through the wilds of Minnesota. Pedal along with family or friends on the first leg of America’s famous 3,000 mile bike system at your own pace using bike-friendly roads and multi-use pathways.
Its CyclecCross season here in Minnesota and this weekend Tonka Cycle & Ski is hosting two days of fun out at LGR CX, October 21 & 22, out at Jackson Meadows, St Marine near the St Croix River, east of the Twin Cities.
The wait is over! Get a head start riding your bike with these bike events in May. You can catch a peak at the first batch of blooming flowers and get ready for the rest of the warm weather riding season ahead.
