MTB non-profit: Gang Resistance Education and Training

Ah, the seductive powers of the mountain bike. In Sacramento a new program aims to use bicycling (I assume they mean mountain biking, cycling is still a pretty elite sport) to lure kids away from gangs and negative influences. The article is sparse on details but it sounds like an innovative way to build kids …

MTB lessons for business

In perhaps another example of mountain biking becoming the next golf, Paul Kedrosky writes “Everything I Know About Business I Learned from Mountain-biking.” Paul makes some good points about looking where you want to go and knowing your limits. Maybe there’s a book idea somewhere in there? Lance certainly does well on the corporate speaking …

MTB crash video

Nice video compilation of mountain bike crashes on Google Video. Actually the vid is a little slow getting started but hold on – there’s plenty of pain to keep you entertained.

I will change my name for a new mountain bike

To whom it may concern: My name is Jeff and I’ve been riding the same Trek 7000 mountain bike (hardtail) for the past 7 years. The bike has been everywhere as my wife mudhunny and I have explored the singletrack from Georgia to California and from Colorado to Vermont (and plenty in between). All told …

Mystery mountain bike spotted at bottom of cliff

I’m not sure why this is news but I guess things are a little different “Down Under.” Apparently a mountain bike was spotted at the bottom of a gnarly cliff and no one seems to know whose it is or how it got there. There doesn’t seem to be any concern that someone might have …

The Edge of perfection: Garmin Edge 205 review

I got my first GPS receiver for Christmas in 2000 and since then I’ve purchased and tested a number of offerings from Garmin including the Vista, Forerunner, and now the Edge. After using the Garmin Edge 205 for a short afternoon I have to say this is easily my favorite GPS for mountain biking. The …

MTB Review – Bikes & more

A couple weeks ago I talked about our (sucky) mountain bike gear review pages on singletracks and now we’ve done something about it. The new mountain bike review pages are now online and we already have several reviews for you to check out. The singletracks mountain bike review site is a little different from others …

Mountain bike job: Gear tester/writer

For some reason these mountain bike job posts always seem to come to me on Fridays -¬† which is too bad since most of us dream of these types of jobs on Monday mornings :(. This week’s job is perhaps the one job that will make you question your career choice the most – Mountain …

We haven’t been officially blogging that long but we’ve been writing online mountain bike articles on singletracks for years (5 and a half years to be exact). Now you can find all our past articles right here in our blog archives, including our most popular article EVER – MTB Jerks. Enjoy the blast from the …

Olympics pushing out London MTB trail

When the Olympics come to town it usually means new athletic facilities and sometimes even new mountain bike trails (look at the Georgia International Horse Park trails – you too can ride the Olympic mountain bike course!). But for mountain bikers in London, the 2012 Olympics will push out a favorite local trail to make …

MTB raffle to benefit Great Divide racer

The Fat Cyclist is organizing a raffle to help out Dave Nice, a rider in this year’s Great Divide race, a 2,490 mile jaunt from Montana to New Mexico. Nice started the month-long race last year but his bike was stolen just a few days in :(. Dave Nice is back for this year’s race …
