New Steering Wheel on the Surly Sled

Tonight (Tuesday, March 21, 2011) is the first Dirt Diva’s group ride of the year.   As this is the first season I’m not working retail I was very giddy to get back in the saddle with a large group of fellow women that love cycling.   I also knew to keep my respected name in the area I would have to get my bike to stop creaking before the group ride. Over the weekend when I was riding Fisher Farms my handlebar kept popping and my rea…

First Race of 2011 : DFL

This morning I attended my first cyclocross race of the year, and notably the first one in over a year and a half. There were two goals going into my womens CX4 race, first was to finish and the second was not to be lapped.  Going into the race I wasn’t too sure of the latter, I knew I could pedal around slowly for 30 minutes but to keep in front of all the other ladies is another story. Prep Work and Bicycle Builds Never build a bi…

Race Report : NCCX #14 Greensboro

…from a sharp off-camber turnto the main level of the course. Lots of sharp turns that got progressively rutted as the day went on, and some pine needle sections that you had to pay close attention to in order to not spin. Lots of reasonable up- and down-hilliness, but nothing too steep. Fun! Welcome to Masters 45+ I raced Masters 45+ for the first time. Frankly, so long as I could stay out of the way of the faster guys (and Pro/1/2/3 women, who a…

A Delayed Reaction

Review: Road Holland The Delft Long Sleeve Jersey

…hold your smartphone This jersey looks great and feels even better. The poly mesh was warm enough with a wind vest on a 50′ day. Personally, I would classify this as a long sleeve light weight “spring” jersey. It also wears well with a pair of jeans. I’m wearing a size large in the pictures which fits great in torso and arm length. The body is a bit baggy but I find that to be the problem with any womens shirt when…

Burley Solstice Review

Preview: Burley Solstice Stroller

Typically, Bike Shop Girl as a site focused 80% of the articles and reviews on bikes, bikes and bikes. As I recently became a new mom, the idea of empowering women and families to get active has really hit home as there really aren’t a lot of valuable, honest, resources out there to help. When my wife and I were looking for a good multi-purpose stroller last fall the only option we came across was the BOB family. We didn’t purchase o…
