  • Kom Cycling Media Desk

    Let's face it, we can't be outside biking every day. Even with fatbikes for crushing it in the winter, there are days where an indoor session is just what the trainer ordered. And with the wide array of training apps available to us, we can use a screen for motivation for a change. Kom Cycling […]

  • Pearl Izumi X-ALP Launch Flat Pedal Bike Shoe

    It's no secret, we're big fans of Pearl Izumi biking gear. One thing we haven't tried is their cycling shoe line, but that changed when we tried on the X-ALP Launch flat pedal shoe. We decided to make the switch from clipless – goodbye Eggbeaters, we loved you so! – to work on our flat […]

  • Zinn and the Art of Mountain Bike Maintenance

    There are a few foundational texts in each sport, like Freedom of the Hills for mountaineers, and mountain bikers have long looked to Zinn and the Art of Mountain Bike Maintenance for the first and last word on their rides. We finally got around to updating to the 2018 sixth edition, and it's better than […]

  • Going tubeless with Stan’s NoTubes

    Browsing an article about mountain biking technique recently, we were surprised to read the phrase, "…for those of you who still haven't gone tubeless…" Well, that's us, and we'll admit it stung a little, being the gear-forward geeks that we like to think we are around here. So a project was born, and if you're […]

  • Freetown Lumiere MIPS Bike Helmet

    Biking is a great escape in these trying times. Flying down a mountain trail, feeling the wind in your hair and the tree trunk in your face… You are wearing a helmet, right? If you need to update to the latest helmet technology, Costco has a smoking deal for you. We found the Freetown Lumiere […]

  • Feedback Pro Elite bike repair stand

    In sports where weight counts – and let's be clear, that's pretty much anything powered by us sickly humans – we're used to shelling out extortionate sums for matchbook-sized gear. Every once in a while it's nice to get something a little more substantial for your hard-earned Benjamins, and the Feedback Pro Elite bike repair […]

  • Giro Chronicle MIPS Bike Helmet

    Back in the dinosaur days, there was an advertising campaign for helmets that billed them as "courage for your brain." Courage is fine, but what's even better is straight-up armor, and the best brain buckets these days use MIPS: multi-directional impact protection system. MIPS is basically a helmet within a helmet. The outer part rotates […]

  • REGGIE De Boss Women’s Cycling Jersey

    Road cycling is its own special thing, no two ways about it, and road cycling gear has generally little crossover application to any other sport. The one big exception is the clothing, which you can obviously use for mountain biking, cross country skiing and even running if that's your bag. We're not here to judge, […]

  • Lizard Skins Micro Cache Saddle Bag

    Here at Gearflogger HQ, a new mountain bike usually gets two things added right away: a bottle cage and a saddle bag. We were psyched to test the Lizard Skins Super Cache Saddle Bag, but what we actually ended up with was a Micro Cache. Read on to see why that's important. Lizard Skins makes […]

  • Pearl Izumi Summit AmFIB Bike Pants

    Soft shell pants are an indispensable part of an active outdoor wardrobe, and when it comes to soft shell pants that can handle the crappiest weather while keeping you warm, dry and comfortable no matter what you're doing, Pearl Izumi has you covered. From the waist down, in this case, with the Summit AmFIB bike […]
