All this snow has us dreaming of loam. @wes141 helping us remember what it feels like. Happy Monday! 📹by @lando_before_time
Just snowed in Bellingham but our friend Steve has a rad covered dirt zone. Kevin, Josh and Drew got out for some Friday fun time. Here's to the start of a rad weekend.
@deantennantdh shredding the big island of Vancouver on mount Prevost. Definitely some big moves in there. POV like this never gets old.
The short-travel 27.5-wheeled bike is the motorcycle of the mountain-bike world. You can’t justify your desire with logic, and in the end, part of the joy of ownership is in accepting that there is no justification: You just want it. Welcome to the party @bikemag. Thanks for the kind words. Head on over for the full review and video. Linky in our bio.

Proper heli shuttle where the bikes ride up front. This is how you scout new trails with your Scout in Arkansas. @progressive_trail_design

Friday feature: @brakingbumps goes over his patrol setup. I first bought a Patrol after trying one out, and I thought it was near perfect for me right away with a 160mm Pike and Monarch Plus RCT3 rear shock. This year, I decided to get the carbon Patrol, but I decided to try the Lyrik to get more fork stiffness to match the stiffer carbon frame. At 160, despite more pressure, more tokens or more compression, I just couldn't get the Lyrik to feel like I wanted it to. I finally bumped up the travel to 170mm with a different air shaft, and I felt like I was home again. Everything clicked and I was so happy with it. I'd heard it before, but didn't quite believe how supple the Lyrik was, and how it does sit a bit lower in its travel than a Pike. So for me, A 170mm Lyrik gave a similar ride height to a 160mm Pike, and the extra suppleness in the front enticed me to get a coil shock in the rear. That's how I ride my Patrol now, and I love it. Settings: 175 lbs, 5'8 T-Rex arms, 31 inseam Medium Patrol Carbon 170mm RockShox Lyrik 170 fork, 80 PSI, 2 Bottomless tokens 155mm travel rear via RockShox Vivid R3C shock, 350 lb spring Damping changes depending on terrain. I only change this on straight DH runs on the bike or jumps. -Steve Wentz

Wednesday night party in the woods ride is on this week! Cold beer and even colder trails. Meet at Transition Factory Store at 5pm.
Looks like our social media account's got hacked by Russia this am. We'll try this again. We're extremely proud of our little Patrol, and incredibly honored to be bestowed such an award. Mountain Bike of the Year is one heck of an achievement. We'd like to take this opportunity to thank every single one of our loyal customers for all the kind words about this bike over the last couple years. This makes every minute of what we do worth it. Cheers!
