Shard in the pad, I hate you.

I hate you, shard. You're in my pad. You're in the front pad, which makes it so much worse. The road is damp, and so I picked you up, shard. I didn't want to do it. But that's what happens when...

Don't discount vintage steel mountain bikes as a base for a killer build. The 26" wheels are sturdier to handle your weight and the trailer, they can take big tires for a cushy ride, and you can...

Just got me some fancy new gloves! MAAP Pro Race Mitts

As a religious glove user who has never found the holy grail of gloves, when I learned of the EIT palm tech, I was intrigued, but put off by the cost of the gloves. I couldn’t stop looking, however,...
