Northshore Rack NSR-4 Review

I first came across the unique verticle Northshore hitch-style rack out in Long Beach, Washington back in the autumn of 2015.

DMR Lacon Vault Platform Pedals by Kitty

Originally these pedals were bought for a cruiser bike with ‘old-school’ slippery sneaker pedals. Hey, they matched the look of the bike! Just trying to accessorize.  Anyway, they didn’t fit, so I put them on my favorite fat bike instead.  Turns out the fatty is way more worthy of this pedal adornment level. (Don’t underestimate […]
