Project 321 had some really impressive hubs on display at Sea Otter this year. Their hubs offer a fantastic 216 point engagement with the use of a pretty nifty pawl system. By swapping out their loud or quiet pawls you’re even able to tune the sound to your liking from dead quiet to swarm-of-bees loud. Check out the great articles from MTBR and BikeRumor for plenty more details on these hubs that are made right here in the States.

North Carolina based Cane Creek has been well known for making one of, if not, the best coil shocks on the planet. Their latest incarnation called the DBcoil [IL] takes everything that they have learned over the years and packaged it up in a smaller design. The DBcoil [IL] has all of the adjustments you are used to but without the external reservoir. PinkBike has been doing some testing on the American made DBcoil [IL] shock with some great results. Read the full article for more details and check out more Cane Creek articles here.

Bikepacking is really amazing. The ability to get out into the wild and be self supported is empowering and always an adventure. Bikepacking trips are such a great way to get to know yourself and your riding buddies. A recent article from 3 Canadians on PinkBike struck a nerve with me. They had an amazing adventure and make me want to get out for my own trip soon. Check out the full article with great photos and a 30 minute video!

Michigan manual

Michigan manual

Venturing into the unknown is often a gamble, but when it pays off, it’s incredibly rewarding. Our plans to explore Michigan’s Upper Peninsula felt a bit like rolling the dice, as we’d heard whispers of surreal singletrack in the area, but without much of a plan or many contacts, we were operating off local advice—most often from people we met at bike shops or dive bars. It didn’t take us long to figure out that beta was better than anything we could find on the internet.

Joined by Eric Porter, we landed in UP country and started our tour de singletrack in Marquette before venturing east to Munising. Working our way back north, we continued to ride any network that was suggested, including Houghton, Hancock, Calumet and finally Copper Harbor. Our wager paid off, as we found exactly what we were looking for, but rather luck, it was all thanks to the locals.

As the title states, I bet not many readers have ever considered traveling to Arkansas for an epic mountain bike adventure. This article about the Bentonville, Arkansas mountain bike trails from PinkBike will change that perception. I’ve been fortunate enough to ride in Arkansas myself and ride a few of these areas as well as some other bootleg downhills scattered throughout the woods. It is a fantastic state to visit for some great riding adventures. Check out the article for more info on Slaughter Pen, Coler, and more.

A new year brings lots of new handcrafted mountain bikes. I’ve made a little bit a title change for the new year and I think I’m going to try to start grouping these roundup’s by month. I’ll just add more bikes as I find them to the post. Hope you enjoy these hot rides. These get me stoked for the new year and all of the riding to come. Hitting the gym early myself to be in prime condition for warm Spring weather.

Chumba Titanium Stella Single Speed

I’m really digging this color combo. The purple ano pops nicely against the titanium finish. Purple chain is a bit much for me but the rest is spot on.
