Review: XPEDO FaceOff 13 Flat Pedals

Is there really that much that can go into a pedal? I find these top 10 pedal lists interesting as I doubt for the average person there would be any discernible¬†¬†difference at the level we’re talking about (high end high quality brands). The immediate factors include price, weight, and thickness. So with that said I went for what visually looks unique and the...

Review: TLD Lopes Knee/shin guards

In a former post I detailed an incident where I sliced open my skin during a crash and had to get a few stitches. Ever since then I’ve taken the topic of body armor quite seriously!   One of the first things I bought for more heavier riding, particularly downhill when hitting up places like Whistler and NorthStar, are a pair of Troy Lee Designs Brian Lopes...

Review: Mavic Rush Mountain Bike Shoes

The Mavic Rush is the first mountain bike shoe I purchased after a 10 year hiatus in mountain biking. I didn’t spend much time researching shoes prior to making this purchase, but I did note that these tended to score well amongst owners, so when a sale came along it was a no brainer to give these a try.   Design is always an important factor for me, and...

My first order of business was getting the Troy Lee Designs Lopes Knee...

Review: Rise of the Zombies and War of the Dead

When you have Danny Trejo involved, what more can you ask for? Also added to the cast is Levar Burton (aka Geordi Laforge, the Engineer from Star Trek – Next Generation), and the guy who plays Jesse in The Fast and The Furious (the dude with the white VW). For a low budget movie, the film quality is high, and the concept and story are decent. However the zombie...

Review: Apocalypse Z – The Beginning of the End

As my first Kindle e-book, this was a great read. It uses a blog / diary style to write the story from the perspective of the main character as he attempts to survive a zombie outbreak (he writes through a blog, until the power goes out). Started off a bit slow, but once kicked in, I found myself fully immersed as if I was there watching him go through his...
