Three goals: GT set out to update the
Fury, a design that had been around
for over three years, to improve on its
pedaling efficiency (tough because it
was already a great-pedaling downhiller),
deliver more progressive suspension
performance and reduce weight. Mission
Proof in the pudding: Every pro rider will say they
like their equipment, but standing on the top spot at a
World Cup, you gotta believe what the man is saying.
Gee Atherton is pretty stoked with his new ride.
GT Bicycles couldn’t have asked for a better
way to debut their all-new carbon fiber Fury
downhill race bike. In the capable hands of both
Gee and Rachel Atherton, the new bike sailed to
dual victories at the 2013 World Cup Downhill
opening round in Fort William, Scotland.
Chris Wyche rides trails that are shared by
many different trail users. His handmade bells
eliminate trail conflicts by alerting other trail
users well in advance of his arrival. Since he
didn’t appreciate the constant ringing when it
was not needed, he designed a simple and user-friendly system that allows the “knocker” to be
attached to the side of the bell when not in use,
silencing the bell. The bells, truly a work of art,
are 100 percent handmade from CNC-machined
metal in Southern California and sell for $30. If
you’d like one for yourself, contact Chris the good
old-fashioned way by calling (805) 857-4567.
