Rapid Review: Giro Remedy Full Face Helmet

I’ve had this helmet for a few years now and thought I’d write a review of it. Pros: Good deal for the money. Tons of graphics variety. Uses a buckle instead of a d-loop. Cons: At 1000+ grams, it’s kind of heavy. Definitely feel it in the neck after a day of riding. Not quite sure the ventilation is that good. I haven’t used a lot of other...

Review: XPEDO FaceOff 13 Flat Pedals

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.

Started off a bit slow, but once kicked in, I found myself fully immersed as if I was there watching him go through his...

Review: Troy Lee Designs Elbow/Forearm Guard EG 5550

After my recent spill where I ended up in the ER with some stitches I had this crazy thought – maybe padding might be a good idea! After reading a lot of reviews on Amazon, JensonUSA.com, and BackCountry.com, I decided to go with the TLD EG 5550 elbow/forearm guards and the KG 5450 knee/shin guard. In short, the EG 5550 is an excellent choice. I’m...

ION Drum Rocker IED07 Review

So my wonderful wife got me a set of ION Drum Rocker electronic drum pads for the XBOX (for use with Rock Band). ION is a company that makes music equipment, and has this set of electronic drum pads – and swapped out the module that would convert the hits into sounds for an amp for an XBOX/PS3 controller. The difference is amazing. The pads are crazy...
