Ride, Eat, Yurt!

Kitsbow ambassador and PR honcho, Adrian Montgomery is a pretty well known guy in the bike industry. When he’s not sitting on PR calls or working as the Executive Director of the Wood River Bicycle Coalition, he’s doing cool things.

Really cool things.

It came as no surprise to the Kitsbow team that earlier this month, Adrian would be working with photographer Ian Hylands, The Cyclist’s Menu’s Zander Ault and Heidi Rentz, and the crew at Niner Bikes to help launch the new Niner JET and RIP trail bikes. As if that wasn’t cool enough, they would all be part of a larger group to ride, eat great food, and ‘Yurt camp’ in the Smokey Mountains outside of Ketchum, Idaho.

Adrian and Ian were able to team up to give us a glimpse of the event from the eyes of fellow #obsessives. To get you motivated for a trip of your own, they’ve shared a few pics from their time with their hosts at Sun Valley Trekking. If a guided mountain biking adventure is what you’re looking for this summer, it might be worth ditching the bivy from the back of your truck!

Add Beauty: Silca at 100
Add Beauty: Silca at 100

by Nicholas Haig-Arack July 18, 2017

This year SILCA is celebrating a century of bicycling innovation. This legendary company was the first to include pressure gauges on floorpumps, the first to produce a usable portable pump, and the first to produce a valve-controlled CO2 inflator; all necessities that we now take for granted. SILCA was run by the Sacchi family in Milan until it was sold in 2013 to the former technical director for Zipp Speed Weaponry, Joshua Poertner. SILCA is now based in Indianapolis and has carved out a niche for itself by manufacturing precision-engineered, heritage-grade pumps and tools that walk the line between utilitarian duty and aesthetic beauty. We recently caught up with Josh to talk about cycling, art, and everything in between.

The Outsiders’ Guide to Mountain Biking British Columbia
The Outsiders’ Guide to Mountain Biking British Columbia

by Lani Bruntz July 07, 2017

With an opening in our Push to Start Summer Tour schedule, we opted to “take the long way around” for a detour de British Columbia on our way to Sun Valley, Idaho. On a whim we fled north from Seattle, first stopping in Bellingham to soak up as much lush Washington terrain as possible. We roughly sketched out what our next week might hold – entering the mecca via Vancouver, heading north to Pemberton, then working our way east and south to depart the country via Rossland. We let our trip unfold hour by hour, trying to make time to ride in all the spots we’ve read and seen so much about.

Shorts Guide
Shorts Guide

by Zander Nosler July 06, 2017 2 Comments

Knowing when and when not to wear shorts is a skill we only fully acquire sometime after adolescence – in fact, studies have shown that shorts-related decision-making abilities are directly linked to frontal lobe development. But since we mountain bikers are prone to being hit in the head, let’s not make any assumptions about shorts etiquette.
