Sombrio Women's Origami Jersey

Review: Sombrio Women’s Origami Jersey

When you hear jersey I bet you think spandex, pockets and zippers. Each of these features have its benefits; pockets for food and tools, zippers for airflow and spandex to keep close to your body. These features have very little use in mountain biking with backpacks strapped to our backs and the desire of looser fitting clothing to be able to move freely. While the…

Giro Manta Women's Mountain Bike Shoes

Preview: Giro Manta Women’s Mountain Bike Shoes

As I’m reviewing the road shoe from Giro called the Solara, I’ve also been able to plant my feet in the mountain bike version called the Manta.

Preview: Giro LA DND Women’s Glove

There are two styles of mountain bike gloves I use.

A few suggestions have come to mind, but not all of them have women’s options! Chrome – A good start, key for outerwear, but all black options make me want more. Swrve…

Surly Womens Jersey

Review: Surly Merino Wool Longsleeve Jersey

This winter I’ve had the opportunity to add pretty key pieces to my cold weather attire. With a good amount of cold base miles, I’ve shredded some items and some have stayed strong and worthy of a solid review. A few different long sleeve jerseys are my main highlights from this shredding that I’ll be reviewing this week. There is something comforting about a soft…

Why Must I Want Rapha for Christmas?

I work in the bike industry which means I do not make crazy amounts of money in order to justify paying $85 for a merino wool tshirt. But, I want it so badly. Then there are their cycling caps. Sexy and I own one. Thanks to Peter with Bike Law. Best cycling cap I’ve ever had. $40. WTH. Finally, these boxers. They look so yummy…
