FIRST IMPRESSION - BMC FOUR-STROKE FS01 29: The XC-ish 100mm of travel front and rear is made more playful by a 70-degree head tube angle and a long top tube/short stem combo, and total weight for this carbon-framed beauty is under 24lbs.
FIRST IMPRESSION - KONA RAIJIN: Since surviving the Trans-Sylvania Epic I’ve been stoked on the Kona's ride quality. The oversize Ti isn’t noticeably flexy, but there is give to the rear end to take the edge of the never-ending rocks.
DIRT RAG'S RACE REPORT FROM FORT WILLIAM WORLD CUP: We traveled to Scotland for the opening round of the World Cup downhill series where racers tackled the famed rocks and roots of Ben Nevis. See how the action played out.
FIRST IMPRESSION - SANTA CRUZ SOLO AND REDESIGNED TALLBOY2: The Bronson has a little brother: the all-new, 27.5-inch Solo, sporting 125mm of VPP travel. We took it—and the second-generation Tallboy 29er—for a spin in Scotland.
