December 29, 2013

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…

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…
