One of the new full suspension marathon bikes for 2012 is the 920 from Look Cycle. Aside from its innovative head tube design, this full susser features carbon seat stays built to flex up to 15mm to reduce a heavy pivot on the swing arm that triggers the shock through a short rocker linkage.

Kona has designed a new reasonably priced entry-level mountain bike called the Mahuna for 2012. This inch-wheel hardtail is ideal for riders who want to jump on the big-wheel bandwagon. Taking pride in its Kona Race Light 7005, this Kona is lightweight in weight and geared for performance.

With 7005 aluminum butted tubing and 29er geometry, the 2012 Kona Mahuna 29er Bike is designed to keep things simple yet exciting. Moreover, its carefully selected topnotch components make it one of the most durable 29er machines on the market today.

A head angle slackened by a degree is one of the changes made in the 2011 Niner RIP 9 bike in order to enhance the capabilities of the RIP to tackle downhill trails.

The slacker head angle of the new RIP is of 70.5º (120mm fork) to 69.5º (140mm fork). Riders can achieve even steeper or slacker angles thanks to the upgrade to an aftermarket Cane Creek Angleset. This means a range from 72º (120mm fork) to 68º (140mm fork), making a very versatile frame, ideal for dialing in to best tackle local trails.

Other new features of the 2011 Niner RIP 9 bike include an overt 140mm fork endorsement, hot Tamale red color, and Zero Stack headset standard. These changes make this new version of the RIP bike a great buy….

The paparazzi are very clever when it comes to locking down those photos of celebs, using whatever kind of transportation they can. It now seems as if they’re using bikes, and may need to try out some training wheels first. Hollywood reports say that a paparazzo on a bike crashed into star Anne Hathaway’s car, a black Audi, that was being driven by her boyfriend Adam Shulman. Steve Whitmore, Sheriff’s spokesman, told the LA Times that the photographer was riding a Viola 24-speed and was moving “way too fast.” The man was later identified as Freddy Ferraro, and he left the scene before cops arrived. He had with him a high-end camera with a large telephoto lens….

Over the course of this past weekend, somebody made off with a Trek-Livestrong time trial bike from Lance Armstrong’s Mellow Johnny’s bike shop in Austin, TX. The Trek Equinox TTX XL was ridden by team member Ryan Baumann in the 2009 season. Ted Arnold, the store’s sales manager, said that the store was broken into early Sunday, but they didn’t think anything was stolen at first. He ended up counting photos taken by Velo News and realized that Baumann’s bike was missing. The stolen bike features custom-painted Bontrager Aero bars, with Baumann’s name on the top tube. It also sports a Bontrager front wheel and Zipp disc rear. The bike is owned by Trek, and is worth about $10,000. The shop will use Twitter to try and recover the bike, as Ted Arnold says, much like Lance Armstrong used it to recover his…
