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.

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.

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

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.

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…
