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 […]

The home stretch! Just a quick update regarding the Whole30, as It’s had it’s moments both good and bad over the past few weeks. I’m realizing though, those bad moments are directly related to the bad habits and cravings I’ve grown accustom to over many years of “no brakes eating”. For so many of us, eating has more to do with our social and emotional environments, than our physical need […]

“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 […]

As many of you know, I have a small love affair with 12 mile 5000′ climb, out my back door. Recently, I had the privilege to work with Dane Christensen with DanesDrone.com on a little video project. I’ve always wanted to document the trip up to Francis Peak and have actually tried a few times on my own. But nothing will measure up to this bit of footage. Filming it […]

I got the opportunity to travel to Ontario Canada, last weekend, for the 2015 Trek Store Canada Cup / Ontario Cup. My good friend Hayden Sampson, was planning on heading out and needed someone to tag along. Fortunately, my schedule worked out and I was able to do just that. We flew into Buffalo NY, rented a van and headed North. It was a bit of a journey still and […]

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 […]

A few months ago I had the opportunity to get the low-down and suit up in some Hyperthreads clothing for a few hours. Just last weekend, during the Sea Otter Classic, I had a follow up appointment with the Hyperthreads crew to get the skinny one more time. The first pass by their booth, I had to circle around due to the large volume of people checking out their threads. […]
