All City Macho Man Madness

Preview: All City Macho Man Cyclocross Bike

One of the most exciting parts (there were many) of Frostbike 2012 is the reveal of the new All City Macho Man Cyclocross bike. This is the geared version of their well known Nature Boy. I can tell you right now this bike is what I’ll be racing next cross season, and will be ordering the gold frameset option as my pit bike. Yes, I…

Salsa Casseroll

Full Review: 2012 Salsa Cycles Casseroll

For the past couple months I have been riding the 2011 Salsa Casseroll on the road, on side streets, commuting, off the beaten path and really it has been the bike strapped to the roof of my car while traveling all over NC, SC and TN. I will be sad when I have to send this bike back as it truly is the Cadillac of…

Small Women's 29er Niner Frame

Niner EMD Super Small 29er

As shown originally over at BikeRumor.com this is well worth the repost!  29er with 27-27.2″ of stand over. It doesn’t sound amazing, but it’s more than an inch lower than the small. I am super interested to see one of these up close and personal, hopefully our local Niner guy will get it on his demo truck. My fears are the handling and front end…

Pearl Izumi Pro Barrier Shoe Covers

Preview: Pearl Izumi P.R.O. Barrier WxB Shoe Covers

Shoe covers are a funny thing. For me, it is the make or break temperature. If I have to put shoe covers on it normally means that most of my friends won’t ride with me because it is too cold. Recently I realized my hobbled together shoe covers that I have been putting more and more duct tape on every year have had it. They…

Broken iPhone Screen

iPhone Bicycle Ready Cases

Yes, this is a bike blog but behind it all I’m a tech freak. Ask anyone about any tech product I have purchased, I research and research…then research a bit more. By the time I get to a store I tend to know more about the product than the person selling it to me. At the end of 2007 I purchased my first “smart phone”…

While at the Surly Intergalactic Headquarters of QBP I was able to demo a few bikes for commuting purposes from my abode to the headquarters. While there was also a Civia I haven’t put up yet, there is a Surly Troll that also busted a friends hip on the black ice across the Minneapolis pavement.

Burley D'Lite Child Trailer

Review: Burley D’Lite Child Trailer

I’ll keep you from reading my rant of why I feel that child bike seats are unsafe and can lead to danger for the child and adult. That will be saved for another day. Earlier in the summer Burley sent out a D’Lite Child Trailer for review purposes. Walking into the review I knew from my experience in the past with Burley, their trailers and…

2012 Trek Lush Carbon

Review: 2012 Trek Lush Women’s Full Suspension Mountain Bike

Since posting the first photos back in July the 2012 Trek Lush has been a buzz around Bike Shop Girl. The Twitter stream gets many comments, Facebook gets many questions and my email has its own little folder of women waiting to hear more on first test rides and availability. As I mentioned a few weeks back I was fortunate enough to be loaned a 2012…
