Your Spring Cleaning List

Do you ever have those days that you walk into your bike room or storage area to feel over whelmed? You simply want to ride your bike, but over the winter you have neglected your bike. Hung it up wet, wore down the chain, you need a new cassette, your rear brake is dragging and needs bled, and so forth. That’s how I feel today….

Review: Bike After Dark Fireball Mark II Wheel Light

Mountain Bike Fit Musings

For the past 5 or so years I have been a 29er (and 650b) lover. Normally my mountain bike is a single speed, full rigid rig. Sometimes an 80mm hard tail, or something of the variety.
