    As part of our special look at tubeless wheels today we thought it would be a good time to repost one of our most popular tech stories of all time - PEZ's look at American Classic Tubeless wheels. Almost two years since it was published, this story still gets big reads and fan mail every day.

    Very few climbs in modern bike racing can still bring a bike racer to his knees. With the evolution of intelligent gearings, the steepest climbs have been tamed, well, as much as they can be. The Koppenberg, however, defies all technological advances and takes us back to a time when plodding upward on foot was just as common as pedaling.

    Race Preview: With the 2013 Giro di Lombardia taking place this Sunday we thought it was worth a closer look at the circuit of the 'Climber's Classic' with the three legendary climbs: the Valcava, Sormano, and Ghisallo all capped off by one, small, beast of a final ramp: Villa Vergano.

    Closer Look: The traditional route of the Ronde van Vlaanderen changed drastically in 2012, but the old combination of the Kwaremont, Paterberg, Koppenberg, and Steenbeekdries still stands as the beginning of the finale. Let's go back to 2009 and one of Jered Gruber's first rides in the Vlaamse Ardennen with Peter Easton of VeloClassic Tours for a rider's eye look of the course.

    American Classic has long been a company known for pushing forth innovative new products. The latest piece of awesome to leap out of Bill Shook's brain is a new rim design resulting in a fantastically light set of tubeless wheels. Looking forward, this new rim shape opens the door for still more new developments in the future. Let's take a closer look...

    Most of the year, the PEZ crew is outside on the roadside chasing cycling's best. Every once in awhile, however, we get a day pass, and we get to go inside. Let's take a closer look at the amusing, fantastic spectacle that was the 2013 Giro Presentation.

    Race Preview: With the 2012 Giro di Lombardia taking place this Saturday we thought it was worth a closer look at the circuit of the 'Climber's Classic' with the three legendary climbs: the Valcava, Sormano, and Ghisallo all capped off by one, small, beast of a final ramp: Villa Vergano.

    You didn't think that's all we had from Eurobike, did you? There's lots more to ogle at, as we switch gears and get ready for Interbike. On today's menu: Castelli, Sportful, Rotor, Focus, Giro, Poc, Lizard Skins, and more!

    Race Report: One final showdown - 170 kilometers and one monster mountaintop finish to Bola del Mundo remain. Can Valverde or Rodriguez dislodge Contador from the top spot? Let's dive in...

  • Wednesday September 5, 2012

    It was supposed to be a relatively simple day - sure, there was a long climb to the finish, but at less than 4% average, it shouldn't have been selective. This was a day for the breakaway and a day to speculate about the showdown on Bola del Mundo…except it wasn't.

    Eurobike kicks off the fall season of shows as the biggest of them all. With over 100,000 square meters of floor space to explore, of which every bit is filled up, it's not surprising that there's a lot to talk about. Let's dive in!

    Race Report: After a season best described as forgettable (so far), Philippe Gilbert showed that there's still some racing to go before the end of the year, and there's still plenty of time to make good on the sensation of 2011. Gilbert and race leader/hometown hero, Joaquim Rodriguez, throttled all comers on the tough final climb of Montjuic, just before plummeting into Barcelona. Let's take a closer look...

    Race Report: At the end of a difficult stage into Andorra, it once again came down to the Fab Four of Valverde, Contador, Rodriguez, and Froome on the fan packed slopes of the Collada de la Gallina - let's take a closer look!

    Four years ago, Kristin Armstrong took gold in Beijing over Great Britain's Emma Pooley. Four years, a child, and a retirement later, the soon to be 39-year-old Armstrong repeated her gold medal winning performance with a brilliant ride in London.

    Stage Report: After another stunning demonstration of awesome from Peter Sagan at the end of a wild and crazy third stage, the Tour de France heads southwest along the coast, before heading inland for what should be the second bunch sprint of the 2012 Grand Boucle. Let's see if things went according to plan...

    Roadside: I always thought that we'd be overjoyed to reach that final stage in Milano. It was somewhat disconcerting then when, despite sickness and exhaustion, we found ourselves leaving Milano at the end of another memorable day feeling a bit sad...

    Roadside: Is that possible? It can be...if you go for a walk. It's almost unnerving how quickly you can get away from the noise and craziness of a major Grand Tour stage finish if you just start walking.

    Roadside St.19: On a stage so fraught with difficulty, I can say with certainty, I've never seen so many smiling faces in the final kilometers. It was a brilliant day of racing, and we were there in the midst of it, amazed at just how great it all can be.

    Roadside St.18: After yesterday's superlative laden adventure through the Dolomiti, the Giro left Italy's most beautiful mountain range just as quickly as it came and headed to the Veneto plain. We were once again on the road in search of pretty places - we had no trouble finding Valle di Cadore.
