Hills and Beaches

By Jeff Price My local favourite loop this one. There’s nothing better than leaving the house in the early evening, riding some of the hills and dropping down onto the beach for the last few miles home. This ride takes me along the causeway to the medieval town of Conwy and up into the hills […]

45NRTH Sturmfist Review

  By Andy Oleson Christmas came a little early this year in the form of some sweet 45NRTH Gloves showing up on my door step.  I knew they were heading my way, but just like a kid at Christmas I tore the box open to check out the contents.  To my surprise two pairs of […]

0 to 60 with the Lake MX145 Shoes

  Last December I spoke with some friends over at Lake Cycling about their new shoe that was quietly released, the MX145, about reviewing a set. I’m not one for big heavy boots when I ride and have had little interest in the past of such models. I’d sooner freeze my toes off, stuffing my […]

Zapatos del Fuego ♦ Zito’s Lake MXZ303 Review

Written By :  Chris Zito Way back when I was pounding the mean streets of Milwaukee shuttling other peoples packages and shit around town, I picked up a pair of the Lake winter boots that were toted as being “the bomb” in winter riding foot apparel.

Ibex Equipo Pants

For the last couple of seasons, I’ve been looking for something to wear over my winter tights when the temps/wind chill takes an extra nasty turn.  Everything I found either ended up being too bulky, especially in the lower leg/ankle area, or they were too warm (i.e., snow pants).  Earlier this winter I got an […]

Lake MXZ303 – First Impressions

How could I resist the chance to test out a pair of Lake’s newly designed MXZ303 winter cycling boots…I mean, they have my freak’n name emblazoned across the side of them and (like many of us) I’ve worn an older model of Lake’s winter boot for years. About a month ago our amigos at Stage […]

Smith Vantage Helmet – Vented Nirvana

With a fat bike added to my stable last year, I knew I was going to be doing a whole lot more cold weather riding.  Not only more, but in much colder conditions.  Last winter, after a couple of longish rides in the low teens I finally came to accept the shortcomings of riding with […]
