Review: 2008 Trek Fuel EX9

October 18, 2007

This bike is my baby. I own the 2006 edition of the Fuel EX9. The new features of the 2008 model – the Active Braking Pivot (ABP), Full Floater, and EVO Link – offer a huge step-up in performance. My 2006 EX9 is a medium size 17.5 inch, but I demoed the new 18.5 size […]

Review: Titus El Guapo

October 3, 2007

My first demo at Bootleg Canyon was on the Titus El Guapo. As an XC rider, hopping on a 6 inch travel bike felt like sitting on a freeride. But as soon as I start pedaling uphill it felt like I was riding XC. The geometry and I got along perfect. I’m 5’11” and rode […]

Today was an awesome day. All bikes, all day. I got to the Outdoor Demo around noon and went right for my home state bike company, Titus Bikes. I’ve wanted to ride the El Guapo for a long time. One word for El Guapo. Dulce. The infamous El Guapo is a sweet ride. For a […]

The Trail to Interbike 2007

September 14, 2007

My Interbike 2007 show badge arrived yesterday! It’s been a long wait…. Last year I was at a business conference at the Venetian the same week as Interbike 2006. I managed a sneak peek at the showroom floor while the crews were setting up… then by the good graces of Tim Grahl I was introduced […]
