Many moons ago, back when I worked in a bike shop, there was pretty much always one soundtrack playing in the background: metal. Whether it was Slayer, Metallica, or any other combination of loud guitars and cymbals on the speakers, it was almost ironically soothing. Wrenching on bikes seems to be more fun with a little head-banging. It’s no wonder that it makes getting really f**king rowdy on the trails more fun too, just like Evil’s Mike “Steezy” Giese did in his latest edit with ENVE.
Speaking of the soundtrack, ENVE commissioned the local SLC metal band Swarmer to record a custom track for the edit. In a sea of royalty-free music put to edits, it’s a welcome change to remind me of the shop days. Rock on.
