The 2016 Singletrack 6 kicked off on the southeast side of Fernie in the Castle and Ridgemont trail networks. The stage started with TransRockies' traditional downtown roll-out before tackling the classic Hyperventilation climb and the enduro-style timed descent on Hyperextension.

Check out the bike’s marketing video below; big props for nice creative that took months to execute and some sharp match-frame editing. My content-marketing brain salutes you. Fatbikes have evolved significantly since the early, slow-crawling, snow-tank days. There are now carbon race
Wide, light, stiff carbon wheels with fast hub engagement and excellent trail dampening: long the dream of mountain bike rider and designer alike. And the Atomik Chubby 43's come pretty close to that nirvana. While there are always some tradeoffs with wheel design (width for weight, stiffness for compliance and dampening), the Atomik Chubby 43's clever technology and design balance those features very well. Of course, at $540 per rim, you'll still have to pay handsomely for them (that
