…up to 10″ x 15″ notebooks Cell phone holster included Front and rear reflective tape and webbing tab for safety light 16″H x 11″L x 6.5″W / 1100 cubic inches Details that Mattered to Emily Not too big, not too small. The bag isn’t so big that you can overload and have too much gear on your back. You can stuff it, carry tons of stuff or whatever else you may but it’s right at 1100 cubic inches of space. It’s white and has a large…

Holiday Stocking Stuffer Wish List

…iece and a close off valve to keep the bottle from leaking in your bag or on a shaky mountain ride. Rear Blinky Light Walk in to any bike shop and for $10 – 40 you can get a good rear light. Depending what type of traffic and weather your cyclist rides in you may want to spend more. Cycling Socks I’m a sucker for wool but maybe your cyclist is into pastel colors, crazy designs or an easy “STFU” on their cuff. Another easy…

6 Hours of Warrior Creek Race Prep

…hat we see.   The radar states that weather will be foul the rest of the week.  The day before the race will be light rain, my hopes is it is light rain in the morning with a ton of sunshine!  Race day it says to be sunny with a high of 54º but in the hills of the Appalachians this could change within 20º at any given day. Pit Support With a duo team the key will be cleaning off the bikes between laps and keeping our spirits high.  That is where…

Review: Cutter Tech Knickerbocker

…review over here for all you ladies (or gents) to benefit from. It is All in the Fabric Stretch, durability and light weight. The perfect combination for a cycling short that doubles as a casual pair of knickers…. These knickers remind me close to the famous Chrome knickers but in a lighter weight material for spring/summer/fall use in the south where I reside.  Light weight yet a outer coat of durability to help where on your saddle or bet…

Review: FITS Co Sock

…#8217;t plan on wearing them too often for everyday around the house as I want them to last! Review of the FITS Light Runner Sock These socks were reviewed by my girlfriend so I’ll turn over the keyboard to her.

Review of Camelbak Octane 18x

Camelbak Octane 18x Review

…7;s back. The Camelbak Octane 18x is a great bag. You’ll make some sacrifices on the long day trips for a lighter bag, but overall this is a great water hauling bag.   How the Camelbak Octane 18x Fits To save some weight they take the structure and extra padding from the pack. The bag can be rolled up and the shoulder straps are thin.   With tons of weight this would make the pack pretty uncomfortable but with clothes and water it was…

Zeplin Big40 Custom Bar Tape

Review: Zevlin Big40 Custom Tape

…of the wrap, now imagine that with your company under your bars. Rolling up to a group ride, sitting at a stop light or your bike parked at a coffee shop will put your brand identity right at hand level. Overall Thoughts The bar tape is wearing well, I’ll use it for most of the road season but it will not replace the DSP on my cyclocross bike as grip and cushion are super important then. I plan on doing a run of Bike Shop Girl in black  to…
