Wearing a new pair of cycle shorts for the first time presents an anticipation which is oddly comforting.
I arrived to work the other day and saw a new backpack sitting on my desk, ‘looks like I have a review to write’.
"Self-preservation, and a desire to pedal out yonder, restricts my bike choice to less than 6 inches of travel; enough to have fun downhill but not enough to encourage a huck fest."
"There’s no arguing that you’re more likely to end up with a sweat stripe for doing so ,but I’m personally a fan of the convenience and faux protective feeling that comes with wearing one."
"Amongst my workmates I’m odd one out when it comes to pedals, I’ve always been a fan of flat pedals but as I tick off more and more back country rides it seems like those clipless torments may be justified."
"Save or splurge, it's the Yeti conundrum; I took out two classic quiver killers to compare what differences a few years and a few more dollars make."
