I Spy : Hoo Ha Ride Glide Review

14

There are tons of different types of chamois butter, from various companies that are special for different reasons. First you have “natural” ingredients, others have a cooling sensation, and some a numbing.

Hoo Ha GlideNow Hoo Ha Ride Glide is the first chamois butter created by women for women, because guys we are built different down there.

Some of you might be asking what chamois butter is.  Most roadies swear by chamois butter as it is a lube that goes on your skin in various “under” areas to help with chafing and saddle sores.  Some women can’t even ride with out it as their soft tissues down there are so sensitive.

I’ll be reviewing some Hoo Ha and seeing what I think.  I’ve used many different chamois butters over the years and I haven’t noticed too much of a difference, maybe Hoo Ha will really help!

I Spy : 2010 Santa Cruz Juliana

Yesterday I spotted on Bike Radar the new 2010 Santa Cruz Juliana.   If I remember right, I believe that the Juliana was one of the first pioneer women’s full suspension mountain bikes.

The main changes are smaller, not quite things to make me run out and order a new full suspension bike but it does let us know that Santa Cruz Bikes is thinking of women while their quest to become an elite “boutique” mountain bike company.  Another neat thing is the Juliana is completely customizable so you can pick colors, suspension bits and parts to your liking.   Their turn around on certain colors is slower than others but color might be worth your wait.

How many of you mountain bike?  What do you own and why did you pick it?
