Review: Clif Bar Sierra Trail Mix

Clif Bar is one of the original energy bars on the market and are a pretty standard energy snack on the trail or in a cyclist pocket.

2012 Raleigh RX1 Cyclocross Bike

Full Review: 2012 Raleigh RX 1.0 Women’s Cyclocross Bike

…t tires I’ve seen on a stock cross bike under $2k. Recommendations After my first real ride I swapped the seat. You should know my love of Fizik Vesta saddles and that is what was put on the seatpost. I didn’t change out anything else, not the handlebars, stem, seatpost or tires. This bike (other than saddle which is personal preference) is out of the box ready to race and be ridden hard. My only other recommendation is to take some…

Stay Humble

Race Report: Bouldergeist at San Lee Park

My main goal for the 2013 season was to move from Sport to the Expert class. That was THE goal. Thanks to a killer performance at the Winter Short Track Series I was moved up to Expert or CAT1. If you aren’t familiar with the difference of the two categories, it often is double the distance and sometimes on a different/harder course. Racing 22 miles on a rough, rocky, course was a bit humbling. My first true race as an expert was at this p…

Banjo Brothers Metro Backpack

Review: Banjo Brothers Metro Backpack

Bags seem to be an addiction for cyclist. You need something for your commute, your mountain riding, your city dwelling and grocery shopping. Finding a bag that can do a little bit of everything and not weigh 40 pounds at the end of the day is pretty important to me. A few years ago I reviewed the Banjo Brothers Commuter bag. For everyday life the bag was just a bit too big for me. I loved the white color and functions but it was just too bulky…

Colorado Cyclocross Calendar

it’s my first year living in Colorado for cyclocross and I’m starting to get excited!

Cross of the North 2012 – Men’s Open from Jamie Servaites on Vimeo. August 20 – Formula Four Boulder 23 – FasCat & Jeremy…

Bilotto Take 6 Beer Carrier

Transport Your 6 Pack Better

When at Loose Nuts Cycles a couple months back an internet friend stopped in, Jim Bilotto. In his hand was what looked like a folder up cooler. As he opened it up I knew instantly that he was going to make my day. I like craft beer. I like going to the beer store and putting together my own 6 pack of select beer. I also like to take beer to places and I don’t trust those paper beer carriers AT ALL. Enter the Bilotto Take 6 The Bilotto X Gn…
