A guest post by Laura Colbert of Loose Nuts Cycles in Atlanta, GA So, I know my byline up there says that I represent Loose Nuts Cycles when I write.  The truth is that I am by no means a bicycle industry professional.  I ride my bike to work and around town, love a mountain bike ride, help out at the local velodrome and am…

Zeplin Big40 Custom Bar Tape

Review: Zevlin Big40 Custom Tape

From adjusting parts to fit you better, to switching parts around to make your bike look different and completely yours, both are equally important in the journey of bicycle ownership. Customizing your bike is an important part of making the bike “yours.” Bar tape is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to do this.

Mountain bike night rides
