Bike Shop Build: Parlee CX

The thoughts and details during a bike build are what make a great bike shop a resource and a dream factory for bicycle geeks like myself.

Boone Roubaix April 20, 2013

This is going to totally happen this year. Now the question is, who’s going to drag me around??

Super decent price ($35) and…

Night Ride Fail

A guest post by Laura Colbert of Loose Nuts Cycles in Atlanta, GA. Arleigh mentioned in her New Year’s Day post that she wanted to focus on keeping people riding when the weather is crappy.  I don’t know what your definition of crappy is but mine involves cold temperatures and darkness.  It’s hard to be excited about being on a bicycle when it’s dark and…

Shifting Your Gears Forward

It’s that time of the year that I’m doing slower and longer miles, mostly by myself. Having lots of time to think through intervals and the long road in front of me I seem to reflect the most on the bike from January to March due to the speed and lack of companionship (my choice.)
