Kryptonite New York Fahgettaboudit Chain Lock Review

If you’ve ever had a bike stolen (or know someone who has), then you know how violating it can feel. While there’s no lock that’s 100% theft-proof, the Kyrptonite New York Fahgettaboudit chain lock comes pretty darn close. It’s HEAVY (this isn’t the lock you want to carry around town), but if you have a

Thousand Heritage Helmet Review

Do you look at the pictures of stylish women biking in the Netherlands and wish you looked just like them? You could always cruise around the city sans helmet also, but our roads in the U.S. aren’t exactly that safe. That’s why I like the Thousand Heritage bike helmet. It protects your most valuable asset

Wild Rye Review: Freel Mountain Bike Shorts & Sandia Jersey

I like passing dudes on the trail, but I don’t want to LOOK like a dude. Which is why I love Wild Rye. This for-women, by-women clothing company has managed to create mountain bike clothes that are functional, sporty, and still feel and look feminine. Wild Rye proves that function and form don’t have to

Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack Review

Kuat NV 2.0 Bike Rack Review

Looking for a top of the line bike rack that does it all? Consider the Kuat NV 2.0. This high-end bike rack makes loading (and unloading) bikes incredibly easy. It’s also super stable, will last forever, and has cool extras like a workstand. Didn’t even know you needed a workstand on your bike rack, did

Giro LA DND Women’s Bike Glove Review

Our hands are one of only three contact points we have with our bicycle, making gloves one of the most important, yet most overlooked pieces of bike gear we have. A glove needs to be comfortable enough that we don’t mind wearing it, protective enough that our hands won’t get shredded in the event of

Bontrager WaveCel Helmet Review (Specter and XXX Road Helmets)

In spring of 2019, Bontrager launched a “Bontrager-exclusive helmet technology” called WaveCel.  The WaveCel technology was developed by Legacy Biomechanics Laboratory in Portland, Oregon and received considerable attention due to its safety claims.   According to Trekbikes.com, “WaveCel is a revolutionary, Bontrager-exclusive helmet technology that has been shown in a recent study to be up to

Troy Lee Designs A1 MIPS Helmet Review

Looking for a mountain bike helmet with extended rear of the head coverage and MIPS technology? The Troy Lee Designs A1 MIPS helmet should be on your shortlist. It’s not the cheapest MTB helmet on the market (though it’s nowhere near the most expensive either). In fact, it’s a good mid-range enduro helmet that’s lightweight,

Lezyne HP Drive Hand Pump Review

We’ve all been there. You’re miles and miles from home or the nearest trail head and you’ve got a flat tire. Getting the tire off the rim and a tube in is the easy part. The tough part is pumping up your tire to an adequate pressure. This used to give me crazy anxiety. If

7 Tips for Biking in Cold Weather Plus Cold Weather Cycling Gear

The days are getting shorter, and the temperature is dropping. Even if your indoor set up is dialed, sometimes you just have to get outside. The first couple of rides are the toughest. Once you get better acclimated to the cold weather and get your layering down, winter riding can be fun! The key is

Sierra Designs Flex Lumbar Fanny Pack Review

Looking for a hip pack that’s lightweight, comfortable, and works well for shorter rides? The Sierra Designs Flex Lumbar might be the fanny pack for you! Although it appears to be designed primarily for hiking, I found it to be a great choice for 1-2 hour mountain bike rides, and road bikes of any length.
