I’ve never felt more confident on a race bike, than I have on this hardtail. At the beginning of this season, I had my eyes on the Revolver 9FS. I gave it a quick test ride around the Bikers Edge parking lot and sort-of fell in love. And that was in the parking lot. I couldn’t wait to get this bike on the trail and feel it’s buttery smoothness, and […]

“In all my searching, everything I found had basically the same amount of coverage EXCEPT BikeInsure not only provided a standard $10,000 limit Bicycle Physical Damage Coverage BUT also included a $10,000 limit Accidental Medical Payments Benefit which covers out of pocket medical expenses resulting from a bike accident. Furthermore, nothing came close to the BikeInsure price of $199 per year. Bikeinsure won the debate! So I signed up.” I’ve […]

“You can’t sign up for a marathon, run 24 miles and say you ran a marathon” What is the Whole30? The Whole30 is a “short term nutrition reset”  not a diet. I’m not a fan of diets as they usually encourage people set unobtainable perimeters with unrealistic goals that focus very little on a healthy lifestyle. Every body is different and therefore tolerates food different. Whole 30 is an elimination […]

First things first, waterproof anything is always on my radar. No, I’m not made of sugar or petrified of water. I just like the idea of being able to work, ride, play in adverse conditions. For me, the interest lies during the fall and winter months while racing cyclocross. Traditionally, cyclocross events are cold and wet even though it seems like lately, there are fewer and fewer cold and wet […]

“There’s no secret to better performance, just a better way”   It’s the week before the big race and you have a million things going through your mind. You’re assessing the training you’ve done up to this point and questioning whether or not one more day of intensity will help. You’re going over and over in your mind, race day nutrition, feed zone logistics, bike functionality, tire choice etc. You’re […]

Getting out for a test spin on some ENVE M50’s on the CX bike. These wheels performed outstanding with everything put in their path. I’m running them Tubeless with Bontrager CX3’s at 27psi. Beyond what’s posted in the video, I railed them as hard as I could on some off camber corners, took a few big drops and of course, some fun skids. These wheels are just as if not […]

I’ve posted a bit here and there about various lubes and what seems to be working for me and what’s not. I have a toolbox in the garage dedicated just to lubes and it’s nearly overflowing with a number of very common chain lubes on the market these days. A number of years ago, I had at the time, the best chain cleaning/lube process that involved a rag, a small […]

I’ve eaten just about everything under the sun when it comes to energy specific products or junk you can grab from the gas station. Most products, specific to cycling or not, have at one point or another worked really well and provided a great bump in energy during a long race or ride. But most products also, in the attempt to replicate the positive bump, have totally let me down. […]

I’ve never considered myself a runner in any way, even though I spend a considerable amount of my time from early fall through late spring on the roads and trails out my back door. I ran track in Jr. High and High School, but it was more a means to cross train for cycling. I don’t always track or Strava my running, mainly because it’s a more of a simplistic […]

Today, while riding the SLC shoreline on my lunch break, I came across multiple people, out hiking and biking, with their pups. I’m always pleased when I see mans best friend out enjoying the trails with us. Every time I take Kashi out for a ride or a run, the big doggy smile on his face is proof enough that he loves being out just as much, if not more, […]

In less than two weeks, nearly everyone racing the Crusher will be questioning or confirming a much anticipated decision. What is the perfect steed for such a race? CX, MTB, Road? Other questions that factor in may possibly include: How will the race be played out? What is the terrain like? And the most important of all: Will I get crushed? I intend to answer those questions, based on my […]
