Hey, hope you are well! The Holiday season is approaching and to help you out a bit I put together a list of gift ideas so you can nail that gift for your mountain biking friends or significant other. This week I’m sharing a great little short movie from Iceland about biking and respecting our planet. Also, a couple cool bike hacks (wireless gear changer?!) and a Singletrack’s review of the new ION Rascal clip shoes.
As always, let me know what you think about MTB Weekly and hit that FWD button to spread the love. Cheers! 🤙

🗺 Places & People: Iceland with Manon Carpenter & Monet Adams
Manon Carpenter a geology student and downhill world champion, together with Monet Adams go explore and ride in Iceland. This feature is full of volcano craters and massive waterfalls. Beside being a beautiful backdrop for biking, it is also an inspiration for ecological use of resources.
There are some places that are about the trail specifically, and there are some places where the trail is a vehicle for you to just see incredible landscape.
😲 Wireless gear changes & dropper post? Why not!
This might not be for every bike setup, but it goes to show how technology, for better or worse, is making its way into every part of a bicycle.
⚙️ How to fix a bent derailleur hanger?
The first time this happened to me was when I carelessly changed a flat tire on my back wheel and did not fasten the quick release. This inadvertently bent the derailleur hanger. Here’s how to make a quick fix on the trail before you’re back to civilization.
👟 Finally, a clip shoe that looks good
Clip shoes used to be the dork kids on the block. Us clip riders always envied the cool looking flat pedal shoes. Well, times are changing and style is coming to clip shoes as well. Check out Singletrack’s review of the ION Rascal.
