Designed for riders who demand a light and stiff shoe for cross-country and trail riding
Trek has over 15 years of wheel-size development experience that dates all the way back to the first 29er they introduced under the Gary Fisher brand, the Supercaliber 29er. They were also one of the first “big brands” to embrace the “tweener” 27.5-inch wheel size. Their Remedy platform takes that wealth of knowledge and puts […]

Primed For Adventure Or The Podium Being at the forefront of the 29er movement, Trek’s Superfly FS was one of the first full-suspension, cross-country, 29-inch bikes that just felt right. While it has continued to evolve, we wondered if our initial love for the Superfly FS would be reignited with the FS 9. WHO IS […]
It’s no secret that here at MBA we have touted the 29er’s benefits in many cross-country and trail situations. But with the recent push for longer-travel options, we were curious about how much travel is necessary for the big-wheel platform. Specialized’s Epic and Stumpjumper big-wheel, full-suspension options have been big hits with us. Could the […]

The key word is versatility and Cannondale goes after that by giving some models of […]
Tech features: While a few of the MBA wrecking crew were around for Biopace chainrings, Shimano’s asym- metrical chainrings from the late ’80s and early ’90s, the younger crewers never had to live through that experiment. Rotor’s Q-Rings, though similar at first glance, are a completely different beast. The concept behind these egg-shaped rings is […]
The year 2012 marks the second year for the redesigned Cannondale Jekyll trailbike. This bike uses what Cannondale calls Enhanced Center Stiffness Torsion Control, or ECS-TC for short. We asked to test the lowest- priced version so that this everyman trailbike would be close to affordable for every man. WHO IS IT MADE FOR? The […]
A Stealth Fighter on Singletrack: The Trek Superfly 100 Elite Still confusing to some riders, the “Fisher” brand was absorbed into its parent company, Trek, late in 2010. Bikes that used to be Fishers (like the Superfly 100 tested here) are now Treks with a “Gary Fisher Collection” notation on the frame. You can get […]
