Civia Cyles Twin City

Civia Cycles Twin City Review

As a rep for Quality Bicycle Products I rep many brands, one of them is Civia Cycles. A brand that is near to my aesthetic craving heart. Their tag line is “Beautiful Neighborhood Bikes.” As someone that has a Civia Cycles Loring decked out with wooden fenders, a wooden front front loader and beautiful spring Brooks saddle I love it. Recently I became very intrigued with a newer…

Knog Blinder Light Review

Knog Blinder Arrow Light Review

We all know my obsession for lights and bags. I have so many of both as I’m always trying to find the perfect one. Rechargeable lights are something I really love. Especially the latest push for USB rechargeable. You see, before lights and bags I am a tech freak. iPad, iMac, MacBook Air, GoPro’s, Canon cameras, iPhones, you get the idea. I always have a…

Bike After Dark Fireball Mark II

Review: Bike After Dark Fireball Mark II Wheel Light

This review was put in play by Luna Cycles in Lenior, NC. I am very grateful for their time and assistance, and commuter knowledge! Visibility is the bane of cyclists everywhere. As a daily commuter, I find myself riding in the worst visibility conditions: early morning light, evening dusk, rain, fog, and nighttime darkness. I wear high-visibility yellow, I strap a riot of blinking lights…

Fox Racing Women's Reflex Gel

Recently Spotted: Fox Racing Women’s Reflex Gel Gloves

There are a couple very important parts of your bike that you shouldn’t skimp on, these are your “touch points”. Saddle, shoes/pedals, and grips/handlebars/gloves. Recently Quality Bike started stocking some women’s Fox Racing gloves with gel that I am looking to pick up. What’s unique is there is a short finger mountain bike version. Fox Racing Women’s Reflex Gel Full Finger Glove $32.99    Fox…

Levi's Commuter Hooded Trucker Jacket

Preview: Levi’s 511 Commuter Clothing Series

It isn’t breaking news. Levi’s have been doing their Commuter line for a few months now. I’m featuring this because the 511 is a guys line, but fit pretty thin. I have hopes for such a power house in the denim department to do cycling wear. It’s thoughtful, I do feel like some of the garments (jackets/hoodies) are too dark and not thought out enough,…

Outdoor Research Sensor Dry Pocket for Smartphone:

Recently Spotted: Outdoor Research Sensor Dry Pocket for Smartphone

I always have my Otterbox housed iPhone with me on rides. I constantly am pulling it out to take photos, or something. The idea of a case that could hook on to my Camelbak back straps, have a port for my music, and possible take photos through it is GENIUS I say. Outdoor Research Sensor Dry Pocket for Smartphone MSRP $25 Almost every bike shop…

What is Foundry Cycles?

As I’m touring all over Georgia and the Southeast the next week with Foundry Cycles (and Lazer) I wanted a quick intro of who or WHAT the brand is. In due time I’ll put this in my own words, but it is 10:30pm and I’m sitting in a hotel room exhausted!

Pearl Izumi X-Alp Drift II Women's MTB Shoe

Recently Spotted: Pearl Izumi X-Alp Drift II Women’s MTB Shoe

It seems that the Pearl Izumi shoe the X-Alp Drift has been redesigned. I should say, thankfully re-designed. Going from a 3 strap velcro system, to a shoe that looks like a hiking sneaker. I can say this is on my list of wants for the hike a bike trips, bike commuting and trips with the family. Easier to walk in. Functionally good looking and…

Bontrager Vella Camu Shopper Review

Bontrager Vella Vana and Camu Bag Review

I am putting these two bags together in one review as other than straps and zippers they are much alike.  Getting women to use bicycles as a form of transportation is rather important to me. I feel as society see’s more women on bikes, as more women empower their children and families to chose a bike, the more we success we will have with getting…
