Rapid Review: Giro Remedy Full Face Helmet

on
September 18, 2016

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…

Review: XPEDO FaceOff 13 Flat Pedals

on
October 19, 2014

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….

Review: TLD Lopes Knee/shin guards

on
September 30, 2014

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…

Review: Apocalypse Z – The Beginning of the End

on
April 28, 2013

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…

on
March 25, 2013

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…

So my wonderful wife got me a set of ION Drum Rocker electronic drum pads for the XBOX (for use with Rock Band).

Review: Driven Sports Craze Nutrition Supplement

on
May 3, 2012

This stuff is incredibly potent, and I’m not anywhere near to exaggerating. I’ve taken energy/metabolism boosters before, and they’d give me that jittery feeling, but Craze doesn’t seem to have that side effect.

The instructions say to take it 6hrs before going to sleep. The first time I tried it…

Review: Schwinn Airdriver 1100 bicycle pump

on
April 24, 2008

Last year I bought a Schwinn Airdriver 1100 while shopping at Target. The packaging was slick, and it seemed to be a versatile pump.  I now regret that decision.  Because of my local bike shop (topic for another post), I have a presta valve on the front tire, and…
