Most of my winter riding is on streets or bike trails where I run 7 and even higher. On the single track it's 2 to 5 depending on conditions. I prefer to find the sweet spot and get a reading on...

I would ride without a helmet before I would ride without eye protection. I get hit with bugs all the time during the warmer months. I can't believe there aren't more pro cyclists wearing eye...

Haters gonna hate. I can think of a couple of good uses I would have for a bike like this. For instance, my commute, back when we all went into the office, is 26 miles each way by bike. It's just...

It was great -- conditions we perfect. And yeah, I've been following the story for a couple of years. Amazing that they finally got it done!

The bike went into the garage as soon as I had my driver's license. It was cars and motorcycles except for a brief period in the mid-80's when I worked at an auto parts store and, ironically,...

I wear a US 14. Size 14 Adidas running shoes fit me perfectly. In Keen shoes (not the bike sandals) I wear a 15. I need a little extra width in the toe box, particularly on my left foot. I...

Rear Rack on the Cheap

I decided to throw a rear rack on my Kona Wo but I'm cheap. They want a whole lot of $$ for them. So I looked at what I had laying on the shelf and there was a Pletscher rat-trap rack I'd pulled off...

I guess I'm lucky (?) in that the majority of my riding is solo, the rest being with my wife. I do a handful of big events in the summer but none this year. Since March I have ridden 3 times each...

I have bikes with rim brakes and bikes with disk brakes. I don't mind either but as mentioned above, wider all-road tires all come with disk brakes and that's where my interest lies going forward.

Kmart branded cast aluminum rack
