Eliminated bike angst, overcame fear, and rode through the Double Jeopardy rock garden with lines proved by Jasen Thorpe and John Howland at Trestle Bike Park. More about gravity in Colorado, angst, and fear when we get back to Seattle.
Arrived in Winterpark to mountain bike Granby and Trestle, but first dinner at Fontenots with beer the locals recommended. I’ll share local knowledge and the trails as I experience them. Being in Mountain Bike Capital USA, expecting the best.
Our enthusiasm for the Tour this year ended at Stage 10 and Nathan Wright wrote about why in the Medium Bicycles Collection. His essay will appear in Issue 27 next month with more of our take on the tour. Did keep curating select tweets and watched the dramatic finale…
The story, besides the Foil and new CX bike, from Scott Week in Deer Valley is 27.5+ and it’s for when the dirt isn’t hero and you want traction, and control. More stories about the Genius LT Tuned and the rest of the 2016 bikes from Scott Sports will appear in the next issue of our magazine. We wrote about 27.5+ previously on the blog and Medium. After Park City and Vegas in a week, resting up this weekend, and then heading to Colorado for more mountain biking….
The bike takes us to many places; including Tony Hsieh’s Airstream Park in Vegas where we had collisionable moments with the residents, including Marley the llama. We’ll ride in Vegas again for our annual Mobile Social Interbike. Maybe Marley will join us?
The adventure you’ll have with this bike is directly proportionate to the size of the tire. It’s the Addict CX monster sized for gravel roads and indicates how purposeful the Swiss engineers are. While I didn’t ride this bike (demo only), it’s the same spec as the CX with a different fork for wider tires, like the Schwalbe G-One. I’ll share the rest of the stories about Scott’s new CX bike and the gravel version in the next issue of our magazine.. The lede is… took it up the lift, rode it down the mountain, and it handled perfectly.
