Giro LA DND Women's Glove

Preview: Giro LA DND Women’s Glove

There are two styles of mountain bike gloves I use. The first is your basic, light-weight, and is really there to keep your hands from slipping off your bars when they are covered with sweat, or when you slide across the hard pack dirt trails. The second type of glove I use is for longer rides, with a bit more padding in the palm and normally a size bigger for when my hands swell and my fingers “grow.” The Giro LA DND gloves fall int…

He put signs up near the end of the ride with a poem he had written. I didn’t get it at first (silly me) but when I saw the last sign, I…

Lezyne Micro Caddy Bag Review

…for easy access to do quick changes on the bike. • Reflective piping around the bag. It doesn’t replace a light but it is nice. Overall thoughts of the Micro Caddy The bag is nice, it holds my goods under my saddle. I like the unique features that I haven’t seen on a bag before. More and more bike shops are carrying them which is also nice so that you don’t have to buy online. Something about being able to put it on your bike to…

Motivational Monday with Miranda

…cars, so everyone got around by bike, foot, or motorcycle. We were able to rent out these (terrible) vintage, slightly rusted cruisers to get around. As the sun was setting and the rice workers were coming in, the twilight called all the lightning bugs out to play. I remember looking up at the dusky sky, surrounded by jungle and fireflies and all I could think of (which is cheesy I know) is that I am experiencing something magical. I wish everyo…

Then someone goes and post something like this, Enve rims laced to Chris King road hubs and I am left searching the inter…
