What do Evel Knievel, Metallica and Andrew Taylor have in common?
They all threw down at the Cow Palace!
Andrew Taylor a.k.a AT, in conjunction with rideSFO, bring back AT’s Showdown on November 6th at the infamous Cow Palace during the 3rd Annual San Francisco Bay Area Bicycle Expo. Last year, we brought you the 1st ever mountain bike dirt jump competition to the SF Bay Area and ran it next to the monster cyclocross called the Cross Palace. From a single vantage point, you could see racers smack into a berm and watch a rider flip in the background. It produced a great visual.
This year we will bring you a 360-degree view of action. The Cross Palace. returns. We’ve added a BMX Urban Competition called the Intersection and a Pump Track that will model the potential McLaren Bike Park. Then the Showdown will tie all the action together.
AT’s Showdown is a rider vs. rider competition. It will be open for invited riders only. Riders will go though a two run qualifier, followed immediately by the finals. 38 riders will take their best run of two from qualifying to earn a spot in the final 12. The top 12 will battle in an hour-long jam. We will have additional features from last year’s Showdown such as a sea container, a ramp with an option to hip right, left or go straight into a quarter pipe with dirt landings.
The roster is a who’s who in big air competitions. Led and hosted by Adidas and Marin Bikes rider Andrew Taylor, Greg Watts, Jamie Goldman, Tyler McCaul, Ryan Howard, Jacob Hyde, Jack Fogalquist, Mitch Chubey, Geoff Gulevich, Erick Lawrenuk, Cam Zink, Logan Peat, Kurt Sorge, Phil Sundbaum and more….
Also, there will be a chance to meet all the riders at the Pre-party at the Marin Bikes SF Store located on 1090 Folsom St., San Francisco CA 94103 starting at 6 PM on November 5th.
Schedule – November 6th

The Hive announces the release of the XCX.ST, the most recent incarnation of the popular XCX chain retention system. The XCX.ST is a seat tube mounted variation of the XCX that mounts to frames via a clamping device similar to those found on most front derailleurs. This XCX.ST version solves the mounting issues common to frames utilizing BB30 and other press-fit BB designs.
The XCX.ST retention system is also a highly adaptable product. It incorporates the adjustable upper wearplate of the World Cup winning LG1+ guide, is available in a “high-mount” or “low-mount” clamp design, utilizes a trick seat tube clamp cam to allow for chainline adjustment, and can be mounted to frames with 28.6, 31.8 or 34.9 seat tube diameters.
“The need for a lightweight, reliable single ring retention system designed specifically for cross country riders and racers was originally recognized by e*thirteen more than 8 years ago,” said International Distributor and OEM Coordinator Jonas Mikolayunas, “and while we were set to charge forth with the product back then, it became apparent that the drivetrain technologies at the time were not quite equipped to handle the change. With the advent of the 10 speed MTB drivetrain and the 11/36 cassette, the XCX has finally found its place. When coupled with any of our odd tooth sized e*thirteen Guidering options, the XCX becomes a highly precise drivetrain tuning tool.”
The initial prototype of the XCX.ST first debuted on the race bike of Orbea cross-country rider Julien Absalon in late 2009. Since its first appearance and second place podium at the World Championship XC race, the XCX.ST has garnered much attention – enough attention to catch the eye of Specialized Bicycles.
“Specialized Bicycles was one of the first companies to understand the value this product possesses in our off-road cycling community, especially among the 29er crowd” added Jonas. “I give Specialized a lot of credit for recognizing the potential of this product and specing it on their Stumpjumper Expert Carbon 29 Evo. This spec goes a long way in legitimizing the 1×10 generation of riders who have been home-brewing “1-by” solutions in their garages for years now.”
