I LOVE finding water bottles. I've found several over the years. I'd hate to see them go in the trash, so I pick them up. I probably have 6 foster bottles in my cupboard.

I had 8,000 miles on a Gatorskin before I lost a big chunk of rubber in the middle of a long ride. My buddy thought I had something stuck to my tire. Come to find out, it was the bare threads showing.

I had a nice 1/4" slice in one tire. The sealant sealed just fine at first. A few days later I hit the levee roads, with golf ball sized gravel. The tire flexed enough to pop open the cut and spray...

I took the famous BikeForums advice and bought a rack and pannier set for my commuter. Three years later, I took it off so that I could ride that bike in a charity ride. I was amazed how much better...

I've got a new Solas 30 and an old HotShot.

I think the HotShot is much brighter, but has such a concentrated beam that the Solas seems more visible at off angles.

They both lose out to the...

Performance is good.
For the price, Canari is okay, but also easier to find at regular sporting goods stores.
