    • Interview with Rodeo Labs founder Stephen Fitzgerald

      During our research for a recent article on the Gates Carbon Drive System we came across more than a few great bikes, but the one that caught my eye, in particular, was a light blue steel machine complete with top tube slung pump and single speed Gates drive, which, as it turned out came from a Denver-based brand called Rodeo Labs. The 'Flaanimal' - that luscious baby blue, had been in development for several months and coincidentally had just hit version three.

    • Farm to Fork: Riding a Foodie Fondo in Vermont

      It’s a cool, crisp morning for July, but the sun peeking over the hill to my right hints at clear skies and rising temperatures ahead. I’ve signed up for the Medio Fondo, which, at 63-miles, seems a perfect middle ground between the 113-mile Gran Fondo and the 35-mile Piccolo Fondo (there’s also a family-friendly 11-mile Ramble Ride). Because let’s be honest: I love riding my bike, but I’m actually here for the views — and the food. (...)

    • Interview with Lauf Forks Founder Benedikt Skulason

      Iceland, as it turns out, is not all about top-drawer crime fiction, world-beating renewable energy, or delicious Pylsa hot dogs served með öllu.

Keen to learn more about the Icelandic bike scene we spoke with Benedikt Skulason, the CEO and Founder of Lauf suspension forks - an innovative bike suspension fork for the cx and gravel markets.
