Best Winter Cycling Glove? Pearl Izumi P.R.O. Softshell WxB 3×1 Glove Review

Pearl Izumi P.R.O. Softshell WxB 3x1 Glove

If you’re like me, nothing kills a good winter ride more than frozen fingers. I typically don’t have any issues with the rest of my body but when the weather dips below freezing my fingertips always end up frozen solid. I mean, they start out okay, then get cold, then get hard, and then they just hurt. The worst part? When they thaw out after the ride, it’s like getting nailed with a hammer over and over again. Needless to say, it’s enough to make me think twice about going out in the cold!

Dumonde Tech Chain Lube Review

| Reviews | October 9, 2015

dumonde tech chain lube

Will there ever be one lube to rule them all? (Spoiler Alert: yes) When it comes to chain lube, I’ve pretty much seen it all – White Lightening (the good ‘ol days), wax lubes, dry lubes, wet lubes, custom mixtures (my father swears by 1/3 Pedros + 2/3 Pro Link), motor oil, white lithium grease, WD-40, and even

Hope Pro 2 Evo Review

hope pro 2 evo rear hub

This review is for a set of Hope Pro 2 Evo 6 bolt MTB hubs that I have laced to NoTubes Crest 29er hoops.

When looking for a solid bikepacking/Tour Divide wheelset I was torn between a few options. On one hand I thought about just keeping it basic and going with a stock Crest 29er wheelset and the NoTubes 3.30 hubs. On the other hand I thought about going with the gold standard DT 240’s. That’s when I came across

2014 Surly Catalog

| Uncategorized | August 13, 2013

Surly_Logo

Can’t get enough Surly? Neither can we. For some reason Surly has yet to update their site with all the new models, but fear not, here is a link to the entire 2014 line with all the juicy details. In addition to a few minor tweaks to existing bikes, Surly added a few enticing new additions to their lineup. The ever popular Cross-Check got a disc brake equipped cousin, the Straggler, and Surly also added the new ECR. The ECR is rather unique (at least to the main stream market) it’s said to be a 29+ bikepacking bike. Talk about niche! Although I guess Cjell Money would beg to differ. Anyway, we can’t wait to get our hands on a few of these new models, stay tuned for reviews, enjoy, ya Big Dummy!

Tour Divide Update – Colorado Pics

| Tour Divide | July 3, 2013

Got a few more divide pics from Sean in Colorado. In his words: “This place is pretty high and rocky… and stormy.” Seems that his updates include less and less words each time he sends one. Perhaps my prediction that he will be completely unable to reintegrate into society when he returns is going to be correct… Anyway on to the pics!
