GORE Infinium Bike Wear: Quick Review

When the label says “When performance is a priority and water fastness isn’t”, you know they are speaking my language. In So Cal, from fall into winter, we can get rain of course, but mostly we get cold winds. So having a layer that is wind blocking is key to happy riding.

Anyone with a love for the classic ‘feel of steel’ will be delighted with the ride quality and feel of the Ritte Satyr. It accelerates quickly, with steel’s characteristic liveliness under heavy pedaling. It feels alive in a way that few carbon frames do.

Marque Cycling Tools Quick Review

None of these tools are perfect. I probably would choose differently if my job required daily usage of tools like these to make a living, but for anyone that will only be occasionally wrenching, these are great choices.

Lizard Skins Aramus Elite Gloves: Quick Review

The cut of the glove has been quite good with a size LG being right for me. There is no bunching or tension or pinching. The closure does not bother my wrist, as some are wont to do, and they wash fine and just do the job well.

Lizard Skins DSP Handle Bar Tape: Quick Review

The tape was nice and kind of rubbery feeling when pulled from the box. It also had a slightly tacky feel as well. The installation was simple and by not stretching the tape, it left it pretty soft feeling when installed.
