Bontrager Super Juice Tubeless Sealant

August 8, 2007

Review: 2006 Trek Fuel EX 9

February 12, 2007

I just finished up a pretty complete review of my bike on Squidoo. I’ve owned the Fuel EX 9 for just over a year now. It dissapoints me to say that I’ve only logged about 400 mile on the bike so far. If I wasn’t married or had three kids I’m sure I could have […]

Defective Rock Shox MC3 R

January 31, 2007

Let me tell you a story about my rear suspension… The stock Rock Shox MC3.R squealed so loud on each compression…they said it was the hydraulic dampening. Easily replaced.

Interbike 2006 – From the Outside

September 26, 2006

I’m in Vegas this week…but not for Interbike. I’m here to blog the Six Sigma conference at the Venetian. I keep seeing all these bikers walking around with big smiles on their faces…dirty jerseys, and the look of freedom in their eyes. While I’m carrying my laptop and sitting in business meetings…there’s a whole city […]

I rode Hawes Trail yesterday morning on my new Larsen TT rear tire. A bike mechanic at Landis Cyclery recommended it to me. He said it was perfect for the Arizona dry hard pack trails. He said he races with the Larsen TT and was with Steve Larsen when he sketched the concept of the […]

Review: 2006 CamelBak H.A.W.G

August 30, 2006

The latest addition to my mountain biking gear…My wife really knows how to pick birthday gifts. I’ve been using a 1997 HAWG since, well, 1997 when I got it for Christmas. Since then it has endured the thousands of miles I’ve ridden, hiked and skied. I’ve only had to replace two things in nearly a […]
