Bikes

Over the weekend I had the opportunity to test ride on a local trail a few women's specific 29er mountain bikes.   As I had mentioned in the past I was very excited about this new idea of women's sizing  in 29" technology but that is...

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.
As I work in a bike shop day in and day out I have the blessing, sometimes the curse, to play with all the latest and greatest bike parts.  This adds a ton of complication to bike shopping for myself.  I'm able to help anyone that walks in the door, calls or emails to find their perfect bike but as my goals of cycling or life change, my bike wants do as well.

[caption id="attachment_914" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="Batavus BUB"][/caption] A quick introduction was posted over at CommuteByBike.com to introduce the Batavus BUB I had teased about a couple weeks ago.  The BUB is a watered down version of most Batavus bikes.  It's for the person wanting a true city...

A very well talked about bike at Interbike in the upright, euro style, bikes was the Batavus BUB, or Batavus Utility Bike.  The bike has a "paper clip" look to it but holds all the function and design that we know of Batavus. From Bespoke : The...

There's a take on women's designed product the basics are shorter top tube because women (most women) have longer legs and a shorter upper body.   The shorter top tube and over all length of the bike allows for easier reach to handlebars, better fitting for...
