Round 4 of the NW Cup returned to the majestic hills of Kellogg, Idaho at the Silver Mountain Bike Park. With all the history of silver mining in the area, Kellogg has an awesome vibe. The weather gods must have been some of the mad unlucky miners from the past with Friday becoming a snow, sleet, hail pouring rain fest. A few did hit the hill for some runs, but quickly found refuge at the round house atop of Silver Mountain Bike Park to get warm and dry.
FSA / Gravity long time team rider Andrew Taylor take you through his latest brain child, the Short Bus camper conversion.
“Now that summer is here and the bus is rolling I hit the road for Canada and have been up here traveling with Norco for their RADFest tour. This last weekend we spent at Silver Star Bike Park and now we are traveling towards Calgary for the second stop. After Calgary I’ll be heading to China for the Redbull stair race and staying for an extra week for some filming in China.
As soon as I arrive home from China I’ll be packing up the bus again and heading for a 7 week film trip to Alaska.”
The guys over at Freehub recently had the opportunity to ride our Gravity GRID wheels and had quite a few good things to say about them. The article covers everything from the design basics of the wheels, what it feels like to ride the wheels, the required maintenance and general thoughts. To sum up the wheels and final thoughts of Stephen Dempsey of Freehub, he came to the conclusion that “After lots of abuse and a few ejection-style crashes, the GRIDs proved their durability continually. Maintenance is practically non-existent, but if something were to go wrong, FSA has built the wheels in a way that makes it easy to replace components. Overall, I loved the wheels; they’re a strong, light, responsive and durable option at an extremely competitive price.”
