As one who previously created 360 degree virtual tours, I am often annoyed by the chosen viewpoint of many POV cameras. If you’re like me this technology is a breath of fresh air. Nikon has good experience with 180 degree fisheye lenses so I can expect this to be pretty cool! Photo John has a great […]
About a year ago, the engineers and women’s product development team embarked on production of a women’s specific full suspension 29er. Specialized engineers have a great track record of moving 26″ platform bikes into 29″ while maintaining the comfortable rider position of the smaller wheeled version.

Digital cameras provide so many new features, it’s hard to decide which model to buy. For mountain bikers, rugged is a priority and Panasonic’s new TS3 adds so much more… GPS, Compass, HD video. It’s your all in one camera!
It’s pretty easy to get depressed this time of year. The wet weather, the short days, and most importantly, the lack of riding time. Although there’s not much that can be done to the weather or the short days, but with a decent set of lights you can help satisfy your craving for more time […]
It’s that time of year again. Kids are heading back to school, the days are getting cooler and darkness is arriving sooner than any of us would like. Check out this update on bike lights for 2010.
