Testing Out DZ Nuts at 6 Hours of Warrior Creek

0

This past Saturday I suited up for a 6 hour mountain bike race.  I haven’t been able to get on the bike that often lately, especially the mountain bike.  The course was found in Wilkesboro, NC, and was a rather hilly course.  One thing to know about where I am from (Charlotte, NC) does not have hills, so this race was going to be the awakening.

When I suited up, I did something that I tell all customers not to do – I put on a brand new, never tried, pair of bib-shorts.  The shorts were awesome, black and white, matching my team jersey perfectly.  I was very wary of the brand new shorts, so I lubed up well with the DZ Nuts chamois creme.

Results

My arse, nor soft tissue areas, bothered me at all.  It seems that I found a tri-fecta, between the Gore Power Bibs, DZ Nuts, and Fizik Vesta saddle.

I’ve now used the DZ Nuts a few times and can say it is doing its job.  Reminding me a lot of the Assos creme, minus the build up of extra lube.  The Assos seems to thick for women but DZ Nuts really does the job well.

Official Rating

4.75 out of 5 : Would of ranked higher if I could of sourced the DZ Bliss, womens specific type, but everyone was out of this.

I apologize quickly about the lack of post, I’ve been “training” and participating in various various.

Last weekend was a Sprint Tri in Huntersville, NC – Cool Breeze Tri.  I finished, that was the goal

This weekend is a 6 hour mountain bike race in Wilkesboro, NC – 6 Hours of Warrior Creek.

On top of all of that, the weather has broke, the shops busy and I’m trying to get some riding in. 

Look for a catch up early next week!  We have 3 podcast we have been working on, about 7 product reviews to finish and a ton of how to tips!
