Review: Godandfamous x Roadrunner Paincave Handlebar bag
Now that bikepacking is popular, everyone is getting on the extra bags or long rides game. If you are a reformed (or unrepentant) fixie kid, that means you've got a track bike kicking around with no waterbottle mounts. Enter the handlebar bag.
Kudos: Tenspeed Hero Noosa CX Merino Wool Socks (the ones with cows!)
Look, if you're wanting an actual review, you're in the wrong place. I mean, "five out of five cogs, keep feet warm, go well in shoes, great socks" could be said about most of the wool two-thirds of my sockdrawer.
(Very) Long Term Review: All-City cycles Nature Boy
I've been cruising around on my All-City Cycles Nature Boy single speed cyclocross bike for about 3 years now. At various stages it's been bike camping, it's been my primary commuter, it's been my trail bike, it's raced gravel grinders, it's raced a season of cyclocross, and it's even been carried over the barriers during a US National Championship race.
Reviewed: Endless Bike Company's Bottle Opener - SSCXWCKY14 Edition!
At $7, you might be tempted to think, why should I buy such an expensive bottle opener, when I can get free ones all over the place? Having been burned before by cheap freebie bottle openers, I have learned my lesson and like to say, "Buy once, cry once."
US CX Nats, or, a weekend in the life of decidely amatuer and not altogether very fast cyclocross racers
I try not to tell myself this when I'm racing, because it's the most demoralizing thing you can think when you are seeing double from exertion, but cyclocross is a pretty dumb sport. Don't get me wrong, I have fun every time I'm between the tape, but it's still pretty dumb, for reasons that, if you know what the sport is, are as subtle as a hand grenade. CX Nats did not disappoint.
