The Giro Factor TechLace Cycling Shoes Review

Giro Factor TechLace

First thoughts on the Giro Factor TechLace I received the Giro Factor TechLace in part because the month of May is recognized as Bike to Work month. Apparently, someone somewhere is keeping track of all these national daily, weekly, and monthly honors. This one does hit home for me. I don’t actually commute to work on a daily basis, but if ...

Funkier Bike Clothing Line Review

Funkier Bike Clothing First, a little bit of background here on Funkier Bike. They are not one of your household name-brand cycling apparel companies that you’re bound to find at your local group ride.  I say that, because I wasn’t really aware of their offerings.  Ironically though, on my first ride in my kit, a guy shows up wearing a Funkier ...

SILCA T-Ratchet and Ti-Torque Kit Cycling Multi-Tool Review

The SILCA T-Ratchet and Ti-Torque Kit is an elegant and effective solution to most of your on the road/trail adjustment needs. It is an incredibly well-made, versatile tool that can be used in a variety of ways to fit your situation. The Ti-Torque allows precise measurement of tightening force so that you don't damage any of your expensive carbon components and it covers the Nm range of 99% of bike adjustments you'd make on a ride. SILCA built this thing to last and the included case gives you a great indication of its premium quality. At $98, the T-Ratchet and Ti-Torque Kit is a serious investment for a tool, but considering the thousands it can save you on a cracked bike frame, it's well worth the price.

Assos H.Rally Cargo Shorts S7 and H.Rally Boxer Mountain Bike Shorts S7

The H.rallycargoShorts and H.rallyBoxer are extremely well-made, comfortable, high performing mountain bike shorts for all types of riders. A range of premium materials are used to allow the shorts to stretch and move with you, while being durable and breathable. The sign of a great mountain bike short is not noticing them and that is exactly how I felt through my H.rallycargoShorts and H.rallyBoxer review. The zippers at the waist and legs are a standout feature for adjusting fit and the removable impactPads give a nice bit of added protection without any real sacrifice. At $119 for the H.rallyBoxer and $199 for the H.rallycargoShorts, you definitely pay a premium for Assos's superior products. That said, if you spend a lot of time riding, the added comfort can really be worth it on a long ride and I definitely suggest adding them to your arsenal. See assos.com for more information.
