BQ 59 (Spring 2017)


We think that our readers will enjoy the Spring 2017 issue even more than usual. We tested no fewer than three really amazing bikes:

The Open U.P. promises to combine the performance and feel of a modern carbon racing bike with the go-anywhere ability of wide tires. Does it deliver? We took one to one of the highest mountain passes in Japan to find out.

The Specialized Sequoia is a much more affordable Allroad bike intended for bikepacking. Initially planned as a one-day “First Ride,” we ended up riding the Sequoia more than 300 km (190 miles) over a variety of terrain.

The third bike in the mix is made by our own Hahn Rossman. We took one of his custom machines to San Francisco to find out how it performed on the steep hills and challenging descents of this beautiful city.
