We’re huge fans of the new Rocky Mountain Instinct and apparently so are the folks over at Pinkbike. We’ve been able to get few rides in on some of the early release Instincts in the Boise foothills and have come away impressed. So while it’s one thing to say that the new Instinct climbs better and is more fun than any trail bike has business being, its another have it in black and white. So here is what they had to say: There you have it and we wholeheartedly agree. For Mike Levy’s full review, head over to Pinkbike.

In a test with no shortage of remarkable bikes, the Norco Sight was a favorite.

Riding is ultimately about freedom, going to places you’ve never been before, and seeing new ways to become a better rider. Maybe we’re just sentimental, but the video does a pretty good job at pulling at mountain bikers’ heart strings.
