The Photographer

Obsessions run deep and can be pervasive. And in our line of work a lot comes down to presentation, so we definitely obsess about photography. We appreciate how high quality shots can accentuate the beauty of the ride, capture the emotion of the moment, and show off the fruit of our labor.

It’s funny how things can come together, and in our pursuit for the best visual representation of Kitsbow we were juggling the usual factors: photographer, location and subjects. Suddenly we thought, “picturesque place to ride, home of a great outdoor photographer, willing riders…. Wait – that’s Park City with Scott Markewitz and our friends!”

Park City is one of America’s iconic mountain towns full of great riding and adjacent to the beautiful Wasatch. It is also home to the great Scott Markewitz who has made his career capturing people in motion. His perspective comes from vast experience participating in the very adventures he choses to shoot, from big mountain skiing to mountain biking. Our mutual friends, Yuri Hauswald, Levi Leipheimer, and Mark Sevenoff know a thing or two about going fast over uneven terrain, and said they’d love to participate. Perfect.

The rooms were stunning with walls painted yellow, the ceiling blue, and the carpet a loamy red. The weather cooperated and gave us great light. Shooting a day like this from before sun-up to after sundown makes for a hard day, but we love the results. So much so, we thought we’d share a little behind-the-scenes edit. Even when obsessing, one shouldn’t take anything too seriously.

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

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.
