Just about a year ago, right before we left for London, Drew and I had to buy helmets. At every opportunity I would try helmets on and all were terrible, or terribly expensive, until I tried the Louis Garneau Sharp. Continue reading
GRIM BURTON MESSENGER BAG REVIEW
This year we had the opportunity to attend Bespoked at the Lee Valley Velodrome. One of the exhibitors that we met there were the guys from Grim. [We have featured their bespoke track frame on the blog here.] Before they made frames however, they made messenger bags, and from my experience quite a good one.
THE BREAKAWAY CC ROAD ROLL REVIEW

LEZYNE MICRO FLOOR DRIVE HP
Need a tiny pump that pushes some major psi? This little guy has saved my ass on many occasions since arriving in London. On one of our first rides across town to the Senate House Library Zoe got a flat. We were no more than 8 miles from the house. Continue reading
4RIZ WATERPROOF JACKET
Rain coats are terrible. They are stuffy, hardly ever fit correctly, loud and generally suck because it means that you are riding in the rain, which no body likes. The waterproof jacket by 4RIZ breaks the mold.
KNOG BLINDER ARC 1.7
Buying lights, bad. Not being hit by cars, good.
We all love a good night ride. Taking to the streets when there are less cars, especially in larger cities, is a joy unlike any other.

At about $65 (USD) you may think to yourself, “wow that is WAY over priced!” However, I assure you it is not. The quality and charging method of this light will keep your path illuminated for seasons to come. Continue reading

It is new bar day for Zoe! For the new build Zoe wanted some small, light weight drops. After a week of searching we found these. The Specialized Women’s Expert Road Bar. Out of the box they look great and are very light. These are 36cm center to center Continue reading
H PLUS SON ARCHETYPE
I would like to start by saying out of all the rims I have rode in the past, these are by far the best. Fairly priced at $60 (USD) each, these rims are both affordable and of high quality. Continue reading
