Ellie Beti Bike Bash

Thank you, Beti Bike Bash

Yesterday I had the rare opportunity to enjoy a mountain bike race and festival as a spectator. Not as a racer, a promoter, a vendor or a photographer but as a fan, a friend, a consumer and a mom. You see, yesterday was the 6th annual Beti Bike Bash here in Colorado. This womens mountain bike event is put together by the women of the Yeti Beti race team, and presented by Stan’s No Tubes. Last year I raced the event, and had an absol…

2014 Raleigh RX 1.0 Women's Cyclocross Bike

Intro: Review of 2014 Raleigh RX 1.0 Women’s Cyclocross Bike

This past summer Raleigh Bikes released photos and spec of their 2014 cyclocross line, including the RX 1.0 Womens bike. The bike didn’t change too much other than paint and some small part upgrades. I was excited about the bike (mainly due to the paint job and price) for women and thought it would be a perfect do-all bike for my better half. So here we are doing a second review of the womens RX 1.0! This second review of the…

Sue Macy, author of Wheels of Change: How Women Rode the Bicycle to Freedom (With a Few Flats Tires Along the Way), will appear as the keynote speaker at the inaugural National Women Cycling Forum.

Top 5 Online Resources for Women

When I created Bike Shop Girl a few months back it was mainly out of frustration for the lack of information that is readily available for women.   The basics are out there, but you have to be a Google Jedi Master to find the right answers, and often you are left with half-assed ones that only confuse you more.  My goal for this site has always been to be a resource, and maybe a place I have a rant or two but that isn’t the point. Though l…

Specialized Jett

Preview: 2012 Specialized Jett Women’s Mountain Bike Line

When the Specialized carbon fiber 29er, the Fate, was released there was talk about the Jett. An aluminum version of the sporty carbon hardtail. Now there is details to share! Highend Aluminum Womens Racing in 26″ or 29″ The new Specialized Jett comes in two models, Comp or Comp 29″. Exact same “mid-level” build on both, only difference is wheel and tire size. I really wish that the build was a step up on pa…

Here are the pants on me after my afternoon commute. I've tried to pull my shirt back so that you can get a good look at the waist band.

Review: Outlier’s Women’s Daily Riding Pant

…n I get to work, not a cyclist.  When I run errands on the way home, I don’t want to be “the cyclist” covered in spandex standing awkwardly in the grocery line.  It may be silly, but it’s my preference.  As I browsed the internet for the right pair of pants, I found that there aren’t a whole lot of great options out there for ladies.  After some searching, I stumbled upon Outlier’s Womens Daily Riding Pant. I immediately loved the look of…

Cannondale SuperSix Evo Women's

Preview: Cannondale SuperSix Evo Women’s Hi-MOD Dura Ace

While the growth of available product for women in the bicycling industry is evident there are two key area’s lacking, high end mountain and road product. It takes a bold company, with a strong belief in women, to invest in product with a high price tag for women. Cannondale is doing it with their SuperSix Evo Hi-MOD. Available in SRAM Red, Shimano Dura Ace and Ultegra Di2. I recently took delivery of the Shimano Dura Ace model and will be…
