Wrapping Your Handlebars

After playing most the weekend with video editing and voice overs, I decided to continue learning and pull YouTube video’s from TriSports for your viewing pleasure. (The guy isn’t bad looking either.) Here is a great video on wrapping road handlebars: A couple notes from my personal experience : Go slow Make sure to overlap half way as you go around the bar Have all your supplies ready to rock prior to starting Clean your hands,…

A Somber Motivational Monday: Jeff Papenfus

A day late, but I hope my readers can recognize why and this Motivational Monday (on Tuesday) reaches folks where it matters. The setup will be a bit different, as this is a story from my fingers on someone that has motivated me consistently over the past 10 months. There are people that you meet in life that hold your thoughts, and make you strive to be a better person or citizen. An example is every time I meet a proud Marine it makes my heart…

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” an iPhone. It was awesome, it had a camera, could connect to WiFi, did all smart things with my MacBook Pro…

Interbike Booth Babes

Booth Babes at Interbike are a Turnoff

…the industry that does know what she is talking about this insults me. Pretty faces and large breast may attract guys to the booths, I get that. The ways of marketing to guys isn’t something that bothers me, hell I even second the notion if it means you see more women in the industry supported. There are Beautiful Women in the Industry I could give you a list of a 100 women that either work or race within the bicycle industry that could com…

NC Cyclocross Clinic Recap

This past Sunday I dragged myself out of bed at o’dark 30 to prep myself and brain for my first cyclocross “clinic”.

The goal was to get to mountains of Boone North Carolina and the Pirate Race Products Cyclocross Clinics. Walking into a cyclocross clinic I wasn’t sure what to e…

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 stack height for those that are on the smaller end of the spectrum on this bike. Y…
