Tucked away in Spain’s northeastern Catalonia region, above Barcelona and beside the River Onyar, you'll find Girona. It's best known for its medieval architecture, walled Old Quarter (Passeig de la Muralla or “Walk of the Wall” which was built between the 9th and 14th century) and the Roman remains of the Força Vella fortress. The big bosses here at Old Man Mountain and Robert Axle Project took a couple of well earned days [...]

WHICH RACK IS RIGHT FOR YOU? We have all found ourselves in analysis paralysis when gear shopping. Divide vs. Elkhorn, Elkhorn vs. Divide? Do you choose one of each, or do you run matching front and rear? Do you go handlebar roll in the front and rack in the rear? Saddlebag and front rack? Do you axle mount or do you eyelet mount? Do you just get khaki cargo shorts and stuff those [...]

The Problem With Small Bikes

By |2023-02-17T12:06:29-07:00November 9th, 2022|Uncategorized|

WHY SMALL RIDERS LOVE USING RACKS When I started mountain biking, there were very few options for bikes that would fit me. At exactly 5 feet tall (not a half inch more!), I’m definitely on the short end of the spectrum of riders. My first mountain bike that I bought in 1995, was a steel, 26-inch wheel Gary Fisher. When I look at photos of me on that bike, [...]
