Blinky lights, especially rear lights, are very crucial to a road cyclist, I've ranted about it before.. Even during the day you should be rocking a blinky to be seen. Planet Bike Superflash Turbo The Planet Bike Superflash has been a favorite of mine for awhile.  With...

A few months ago when I was trying to inspire myself to get back on the road bike, I changed out some parts on the Raleigh Clubman I had received for review.   I made it a bit more "women's fit" and classed it up with...

Last summer I mentioned Soul Run products and carrying your tools in style.  Now that I've had some time under my belt with their tool roll and jersey pocket wallet I'm ready to reveal my feelings and emotions around their products. Soul Run Tool Roll The Tool...

Over the past few weeks I've been able to have some great conversations with the marketing gal over at Chrome about their womens clothing line and their different models of bags.   The clothing line details will be another day but let's talk about the bag...

As a mechanic you become very territorial and particular with your tools.   Once you find something you like, and that doesn't let you down - you stick with it until it does.  Ultimate Repair Stands which became Feedback Sports a few years ago is one...

Last week I finally received my new Industry Nine wheels that have been on order for about a month.   The same time as the wheels I had ordered a couple Continental tires that I've had my eye on for awhile that no one has used...

MSRP : $149.99 Details : A very stretchy, comfortable knicker that was designed for those that pedal more than stand. Roughly 11 months ago we were gifted with a pair of Cutter Tech Knickerbockers, which were originally reviewed for commuting purposes at Commute By Bike.  Since I've been rocking them lately for mountain biking and they will be going in to my "How to dress for winter mtbing" video, I pulled the review over here for all you ladies (or gents) to benefit from.
In August of 2011 we did a full review of Raleigh Capri 4.0, view it over yonder. Aluminum hydroframed with carbon fork, change the spec and you have three different levels of Raleigh's new womens road line.   There are some thoughts I walk away with after looking through the line.  First off, I don't understand the geometry and will look more into it with Raleigh.  I wish they would bring the smaller 45cm through the whole sizes, especially since it has a 495mm top tube!  Until I have more answers, here's the 2011 Raleigh Capri womens line up...
In the weeks, months and hopefully years to come, I'm going to start yapping about touring, camping and all things "adventure biking."   First thing up is of course the bike!

Welcome my Surly Long Haul Trucker

When I started this build I originally started it as a short distance commuter. The front end was very upright and not very efficient for the long haul, no pun intended. As my commute and need for a longer, faster, ride I swapped out the front end of the bike for a mountain bike flat bar, Ergon grips and longer stem. The bike has been changed for a week and I'm really enjoying it.  The first test will be a sub 24 hour overnight this weekend (S24o) when I ride to a nearby park to go camping.
