On the surface, gravel grinding and cross racing don’t have much in common. The cross riders’ emphasis on fast and twitchy bikes runs antithetical to the more stable platform offered by a gravel-specific rig. Bikes are often an ‘either-or’ sort of thing and threading this fine needle is an oft-elusive task. The Santa Cruz Stigmata, however, accomplishes this task with

When thinking of expedition-oriented fatbikes, the Salsa Mukluk is invariably one of the first that pops into my mind.

The Genius LT has been part of the Scott Sports line up for a few years now, but in the past couple, it has received some major updating. 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

Intense Cycles has long been a forward thinking company where bike design is concerned. Long before adopting the VPP suspension platform, the company had one of the greatest downhill race machines of all time, the M1. A bike that had major bike manufacturers so caught off the back that their own racers insisted on riding rebadged versions of it rather
