    There are lots of good waterproof socks out there, but I've always had the opinion that the boot should be doing that job.

    Actually now that I've thought about it, a less heavy boot will do just...

    Clipless changed my life

    Some time ago, I posted a thread on cycling shoes, lamenting the lack of totally waterproof shoes out there. Several good suggestions were offered, and I'm going to get a pair of winter boots made...

    The Ottawa River freezes up every year. I've always wanted to skate on it, and maybe I'll take my bike out there too.

    Huh, maybe I'll give merino another chance. I bought a sweater from The Gap that was on sale for $40 and that's the one that shrank -- a lot. I just don't want to get the $200 merino athletic shirt...

    I fell out of love with Merino Wool

    Just this last winter, I bought a Merino sweater. It was thin, but kept me much warmer than I expected. Without a doubt, this material outperforms my polyester athletic sweater on a pound-per-pound...

    This is the reason I'm going clipless actually -- it was recommended for a proper bike fit. After a bit of reading, my takeaway is that the improved power transfer will generally cause you to put...

    Adams is the one I bought...piece o' crap. It should be an easy enough problem to solve though. The hitch assembly is a pretty basic design; I can just get on a mill and make one to replace the...

    Who likes their tagalong trailer?

    I'm picking up a tagalong trailer today, but I honestly have mixed feelings about it. On one hand, pulling my six-year-old would be a tun way to get to the park, and I'm hoping I can get her...
