Lezyne Micro Caddy

…for easy access to do quick changes on the bike. • Reflective piping around the bag. It doesn’t replace a light but it is nice. Overall thoughts of the Micro Caddy The bag is nice, it holds my goods under my saddle. I like the unique features that I haven’t seen on a bag before. More and more bike shops are carrying them which is also nice so that you don’t have to buy online. Something about being able to put it on your bike to…

…tember for “go” time I’ll start bringing the weight down. Looking at carbon bar and seatpost, lighter stem and installing my Fulcrum Racing Zero 2-way fit wheels.  That will probably knock off roughly 3 pounds across the bike bringing it in around 16 lbs. I also have my eyes on the Paul Mini Moto brakes… Why the B1 with Canti’s? This is a common question I get in shops. Why did you get a cyclocross bike with top leve…

…TN WHAT TYPE OF CYCLING DO YOU ENJOY? City cycling (commuting by bike), group rides with friends or my husband, light mountain biking WHAT IS YOUR FIRST CYCLING MEMORY? How about my most powerful cycling memory? I met my husband on my 1st metric century ride and he proposed on that same ride 2 years later. He put signs up near the end of the ride with a poem he had written. I didn’t get it at first (silly me) but when I saw the last sign, I…

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. Roughly a month ago I did a quick preview of the Banjo Brothers Frame Bag, which you can read over here. The bag has around 700 commuting miles and a couple accidental tumbles while gravel grinding. Banjo Brothers Frame Bag $32.99-34.99 Size on test: Medium Size and type of bike tested on…

…the mesa was a glorious event. As this park opens an hour before sunrise it would be a perfect place to strap a light on and welcome the day with a night to morning mountain bike ride. It is a very quick drive from I-70 and the loop recommended in the book is strenuous but you could get in a couple laps and head to work with plenty of time. The bathrooms are also very nice and roomy to bring your bike in so not to allow it to be stolen. Ride #2 &…

…quickly accessed the situation. We splinted my arm with a bike pump and secured it with arm warmers. We used a lightweight jacket as a make-shift sling to minimize movement. Someone popped 4 ibuprofen in my mouth to help with the pain on the walk out over rocky desert terrain. While I sometimes ride with a first aid kit in my pack, I didn’t have one with me when I crashed. I figured it was going to just be a quick ride and didn’t thi…

…ap over them like the pros. There was nothing pro about my skill set. Still, I found myself walking towards the light.  Cyclocross continued to pull me in, and the spectators always made me feel important. I was living a double life in the ‘cross scene. I would get up early, pin on my number, and suffer for 30 minutes off the back of every cat 4 race. By lunch time, I had my butterfly wings on, heckling everyone with my megaphone. I was an amateu…
