Dirt Rag Issue #201 *The Personality Issue*

$6.00

Welcome to our third personality issue! Cycling is full of unique personalities and here at Dirt Rag, we love to embrace them all. 
 
We feature five different people who each bring something distinctive to the table in the cycling community:
 
  • Iranian cross-country champion Faranak Partoazar sheds light on the unlikely intersection of Iran, mountain bikes and women.
  • Read about what makes Mike Ferrentino (aka Mr. Surlywrench) tick
  • Get inspired by the rise, fall and rise again of freeride king Brett Tippie
  • Look into the life of the rising star, adventure badass and endurance queen Lael Wilcox
  • Learn what makes Anna Schwinn the leading advocate for acceptance and equality in the bike industry.
In Columns and Readings, Watts Dixon reminds us that people can change and that speaking your mind can sometimes pay off, Stevil Kinevil finds inspiration and rediscovers his groove on his old home trails in Colorado, Simon Stewart sheds light upon the BC Bike Race patrol and we go in depth into the impact of Trips for Kids. Rebecca Rusch chats about personal thrones and in The Rant, Eric McKeegan points out that the days of extreme revolution in mountain bike technology may be over.

In Access, we delve into bikepacking and the need for more routes and advocacy organizations as its popularity grows.

Bike and Product Reviews include:

  • Kona Unit
  • Proudfoot Primed
  • Cannondale Trigger
  • Pivot LES
  • PLUS shoes from Shimano, two different hitch racks, WTB all-road tires, a Bontrager hip pack and Yokozuna brakes
