Cabin Fever

Monday, February 7th, 2011

The snow has been piling down in these parts over the past week – it came down so heavy that UPS couldn’t even ship any of our packages last Wednesday.  Don’t get me wrong, the CX skiing has been fantastic, but most of us here are itching for dirt and can’t wait to ride a bicycle in the woods.  Until then, studded tires it is.

We recently got a big batch of the new Maxxis Ikon 29er tires (and 26 inch here), and I can’t wait to try them out.  Low knobs on the center and sides for fast rolling, but widely spaced for superior grip that won’t get packed up. It’s a tease seeing these tires hanging on the wall when there is two feet of snow out there. 

The Ikons will be replacing my Kenda Small Block 8’s this spring when racing season comes around.  Expect a hefty review on them around then.  But until things warm up and dry up, studded tires it is.


We’re pumped about the Ragin’ Raisin Dirt Classic.  A brand new race for 2011, the Ragin’ Raisin is east Michigan’s premier dirt road race. Use any bike you want on this killer course that tours Manchester’s unique and occasionally treacherous dirt roads. 

For dates, rates, and info check out, and keep looking back at our blog for updates.


And last (and probably least), something from the youtube vault. This may be “old” news, but funny news never gets old.  Enjoy.

Spend two minutes guessing what it is, and then be completely surprised and amazed! Well worth the wait.
