    proviz-360-large

    The Proviz Reflect 360 jacket uses a fabric that's as close as I’ve ever been to thinking something might be too visible at night… Oh, and the rest of the details that allow this swatch of material to be considered a jacket are not bad either… And we get their Nightrider Pack cover as well.

    15-limar-sugoi-large

    Limar’s Velov Helmet & Sugoi’s new Zap Reflective Jacket are a couple of new things I’m wearing because being not dead is a lot more important than trying to look like a Blacked out bad ass… I mean do you really think you look “mean” or tough to the general public because the skin tight spandex you’re wearing is harder to see?

    14-cannondale-SRAM-cx1-larg

    Cannondale’s Super X, SRAM’s CX1 group, American Classic’s Hurricane Disc wheels and Ergon CF3 post / SRX saddle all landed within a short period of time… Cue a mad scramble for tires, bar, stem and you wind up with an exceptionally smooth cross bike that removes any thoughts about shifting...

    14-sarto-energia-0

    Quick. Name the family-owned Italian manufacturer producing pro-race winning frames exclusively in Italy since the 1950’s. Colnago, Pinarello, De Rosa all probably come to mind but Sarto are the family (and brand) still exclusively producing in Italy for more than 50 years and I have their new custom Energia Disc.

    Wahoo Fitness' KICKR Power Trainer review: The lack of a rear wheel is most notable but that’s no place near this trainer’s best feature...

    14-silca-eolo-large

    Silca have been the benchmark inflation company for decades. Starting in 1917, they’ve made pumps and tools that have been in use for what seems to be the entire time… How many companies in cycling have been around long enough that you don’t remember “back when they started”? PEZ recently checked out their latest instant classic - the Eolo III Co2 Inflation Head.

    14-lake-cx300-large

    The new CX300 shoe by Lake Cycling keeps up the product line changes and advances. It may be the perfect warm weather addition as temps (at least in Arizona) are already in the 90’s, and shoe ventilation goes from marketing pitch line to an absolute concern.

    14-ott-large

    The 2014 Sea Otter classic was another mix of good food, good riding, great gear and better than predicted weather. We snapped a few new bits from companies small & large… Ergon & Velo saddles, Xpedo pedals, Lake shoes, Lezyne tools, Nuun energy drinks, Rolf Prima wheels, and bikes from Divo and Scapin.

    14-velovie-500-large

    VeloVie’s Vitesse 500 checks a lot of race bike boxes: full carbon construct right down to the drops (frame and fork), brand name raw materials, uni-weave exposed skin, and full top line group and wheels. Here's a closer look...

    14-3t-mercurio-60-wheels-la

    Can the bar/stem/post masters make a wheel? After 50 plus years in the cycling components business, 3T have taken some top line features and added their own original twists to create the Mercurio 60 Limited wheelset.
