Unfortunately, only available in Europe currently this little Moleskin will surely be on my wishlist for when I need a new Moleskin next month!

chamois butter her' review

Review: Chamois Butt’r Her’ for Women

For any ride over an hour I normally apply a layer of thin cream called “chamois cream” between my chamois and skin. The reasoning is to keep friction low between chamois and body, as well as skin to skin.

Banjo Brothers Frame Bag

Review: Banjo Brothers Frame Bag

Above is a great example of what I normally carried in the frame bag. A random piece of fruit or a small, light-weight, rain jacket are missing from the photo.
