Christmas came early this year for Team Colin, in the form of a test ride weekend with a 2017 Norco Ithaqua 6.1. Norco’s answer to the question “Hey Norco, could you please build a racing fatbike for me? They answered “Yes”, and the Ithaqua is many other things too, but at it its core, it’s just a big, mean, race-ready,

Like many, this story begins as the proud owner of either the legendary Tallboy or its updated follow-up the Tallboy 2. Both were undeniable, leading-edge bikes in the budding 29er market.

When it came time to choose my long-term ride for the season, the Giant Trance Advanced 27.5 1 was at the top of a very short list. Even researching other brands, nothing checked all the boxes like this machine does. It’s ultra capable, extremely versatile and comes at a price that will leave room for a bike trip or two

Gone are it’s 185mm of travel—a bit of a nowheresville with regards to speciality for it’s rider. It has also seen them move away from the DT Swiss pull shock system, and

Tested: Shimano CM-1000 Sports Camera

When Shimano joined the largely GoPro-dominated wearable camera market in 2014 with their Shimano CM-1000 Sports Camera, I don’t think I was alone in being skeptical as to whether or not the camera could compete. Afterall, this is a camera that for all intensive purposes is designed to appeal to, and work well for, both fisherman and cyclists; two sports
