Hammer Nutrition's annual sale starts today (11\22)

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Hammer Nutrition's annual sale starts today (11\22)

The prices don't seem as deep as they used to be, but there are still some good deals out there if you can handle being a rolling billboard.
I bought another long sleeve jersey. I like the material and it seems to fit me well.
I also bought some hammer bars, hammer gel, leg warmers and a tee shirt.

The new version of the Voler bibs have been great. The Jersey is great as well.

FWIW - I am an AVID user of hammer products. I swear by them and near refuse to use anything else. everyone is different but honestly I would be hard pressed to find an alternative that performed as well.

Have you used any of their products to prevent cramping? Is so, which one(s)?

Thanks for the head's up! I love their stuff too.

Interesting to see that they now have Perpetuem solids and Endurolytes fizz...just ordered some to see how they compare to shot blocks and nuun...

the Gels work better than Heed for me to control cramping.

I've never tried any of the hammer products, let alone any products really. What does everyone recommend for during ride bars/powder-drink mixture and also before riding? Thanks!

I have used Endurolytes for cramping in severe heat. In general the gels and Heed both help me out quite a bit. I stick with mostly gel, bars, and perpetuem, Insurance caps, PSA caps, Race caps for certain events, etc. Gels are my fav. I PLOW through them by the case load.

Their bars are delicious. Chocolate ones anyway. The gels aren't that bad either. I've used endurolytes a few times to no ill effect. I bought some for my dad who suffers from night cramps. I think he likes them. I'll ask him when I see him over thanksgiving.

Gels come in a bottle and also a 12pack box? They are just enclosed in plastic pouches that you rip and eat like other similar products?

Hm, their bars are the one thing I don't really like. I prefer Clif Bars.

Can't beat Perpetuem (Echotraveler, I like the orange flavor, but it did take some getting used to) and a gel flask for races though. I go through Recoverite like crazy too.

The 12 single serving box is pouches that you tear open. If you go with the jug then you get the flask. You can also mix the flask with water and shake it up right before a race. Makes it easier to squirt out while drilling it.

Bummer that they're not honoring the 15% first time buyer referral. Not much of a sale for us first time purchasers.

20% off with no tax and free shipping ($175 minimum) is better than I can get with club discount at the LBS. Where else can you get it for a 30% discount? I figure I'm going to buy it anyway, so why not save a little money?

Plus, opening that huge box stuffed with bike food is just awesome.

I really need to get my immature mind out of the gutter.

By the way, I have used hammer gels and they're my favorite. i like the berry-flavored ones most of all.

Thanks guys. I'm thinking about picking up some gels in the packs, not sure I'd want to carry around the flask, but I guess I could do one water bottle the other gel/water solution.

Flask is at least as convenient as the tear open packets gel's usually come in. Plus buying the 26 serving is cheaper. Definitely a raspberry and Montana huckleberry gel fan. also ride in this year's voler bibs, vest, thermal jacket, booties only issue is the booties might not be as insulated as i would like but the rest of the stuff is perfect.

see sig. thanks

Gotta admit I don't do the jug/flask thing as much as I should. I am traveling a ton and hardly have time to re-pack/clean things not to mention I race multiple times a day usually, etc. Also I hand out a lot of gels to teammates/competitors, etc. The single servings work well for me, but if it's a race I know I need to get a gel during then the flask is the best way to make sure that happens. under the bib leg is also...a1.
