Holiday Gift Ideas

The Holidays are upon us. And with the season comes the need to know what to get that person who just seems to have everything. Most cyclists seem to fit into that mold. In hopes of helping you cyclist lovers out there, the Red Rock Crew got our heads together and came up with a few items that are commonly…

Keep that fork feeling like butter

  It’s fall. In Southern Utah that means mountain biking. The crisp mornings and beautiful afternoons are perfect for pedaling the dirt. The one thing that we don’t really have in trail diversity, is smooth. We’ve got rocky. We’ve got slickrock. We’ve got desert singletrack and we have roller coasters, but all of it is more fun when you have…

It’s Time for Some Lights

It’s usually dark now¬†when I ride home from work. The temperatures have dropped and the days have gotten significantly shorter.

Just as a reminder, this is how it works. You do your best to grow a mustache. When you are satisfied with said ‘stache,…

Single Speeder’s Dilemma

Speaking from my background in bicycle mechanics, the single speed and fixed gear bike is a beautiful design that will never need a revision. The simple concept of one gear only equates to durable reliability. Gears are the solution to changes in elevation and which make for an energy smart system. So why are single speeds still so common?
