Full Review: 2012 Salsa Cycles Casseroll

For the past couple months I have been riding the 2011 Salsa Casseroll on the road, on side streets, commuting, off the beaten path and really it has been the bike strapped to the roof of my car while traveling all over NC, SC and TN. I will be sad when I have to send this bike back as it truly is the Cadillac of…

Small Women's 29er Niner Frame

Niner EMD Super Small 29er

As shown originally over at BikeRumor.com this is well worth the repost!  29er with 27-27.2″ of stand over. It doesn’t sound amazing, but it’s more than an inch lower than the small.

iPhone Bicycle Ready Cases

Yes, this is a bike blog but behind it all I’m a tech freak. Ask anyone about any tech product I have purchased, I research and research…then research a bit more.
