Tested: Two Seasons Rolling on The Pivot Les Fat

Mar 27, 2017

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m an all-embracing bike junkie. Despite having a dozen or so enviable, quiver-killing rides slung throughout my garage, if the bike-bureaucrats were to come knocking and take them all but one, this Pivot Les Fat might be the sole survivor.

Tested: Giant Trance Advanced 27.5 1

Jul 15, 2016

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
