Frivolous Distraction, or Useful Social Platform and Training Tool? Road cycling has always been fraught with technical controversy, for as long as I can remember. Back when we all rode 5-speed freewheels (not cassettes, mind you), the newfangled 6-speeds came out. Riders were divided and highly opinionated as to the efficacy of this new “gimmick.” Soon after, some of us…

Getting that “perfect” fit

The average person can walk into a clothing store and find clothing that fits. The problem is the average person isn’t anyone I know. They are a conglomeration of all of us and in the end, the clothing fits, but it’s not perfect. If you want perfect, you need a tailor. A skilled craftsman that can look at you, at…

We usually think of grandiose, epic-level expeditions when we start pondering bikepacking trips. Or at least we did until last July. Joey Sparkles and I attended the Specialized product launch in Morgan Hill. This is a trade show. We spend our days seeing product, listening in on seminars and being sold stuff. The evenings are filled with mingling and then you end up in your…
