Ride Review: Lucy Porter’s Trailcraft Cycles Maxwell 27.5

This is a special Ride Review for a couple of reasons; 1) This rad Trailcraft Cycles Maxwell 27.5, and all Trailcraft Cycles bikes are developed locally in Fort Collins by Brett and Ginger Rosenbauer. 2) Trailcraft Cycles came on as a YGR advertiser this past Spring sponsoring the Trailcraft Cycles Kid's Zone. 3) I gave this bike to my daughter Lucy after she rode her bike to school every.single.day last year and helped launch the Webber Middle School mountain bike club. I surprised/terrified her with it on the last day of school by replacing her commenter bike with it.  She initially thought her mom's 1958 Schwinn Starlet had been stolen from her usual parking spot until she saw her helmet dangling from the handlebar.  She finally put it all together when I rolled up on her laughing and videoing.

RIDE REVIEW: BRANNAN FIX’S 2020 PRATT CUSTOM CX

It's been a second since I've published a Ride Review but since Brannan Fix had such a great start to his 2021 Elite CX season, I figured I'd run this review of his 2020 Pratt CX bike that I've been sitting on.

RIDE REVIEW: REESE RULAND’S 2020 SANTA CRUZ BLUR

This bike was a demo bike that Santa Cruz loaned me for the White Rim. She definitely had a rough life before she got to me, but given that I rarely ride a MTB, this is a nice retirement home for her, for the time being.
