Nikon Keymission 360


Besides a new flagship D5, Nikon entering the action market with a 360 camera is the most relevant CES news (so far) for cyclists. I attended the press event, contributed to this DPP review, and will share more after the show. Sony didn’t offer many details, but Corey Rich their Ambasador said, “Because the camera sees in a sphere, the photographer is not behind the lens, but in the sphere with it.


Named Keymission360 for the mission we take in life that require an immersive view

S and S Couplings: How We Travel with Bikes

You do something for so long, it becomes less than a novelty and a regular occurrence. Also forget how many other cyclists may not know about it. This happens with roadie traditions, even changing a flat tire, and how to travel with bikes. This short Vine about S and S couplings shows a favorite part of vacation – beginning and end – and my favorite tool. The coupling splits the bike in two halves, so you can pack it in a suitcase.

Slipping Cleat Remedy

Among my cycling shoe collection, I have a pair of older Sidi Energy road shoes. They are a well-made shoe, if perhaps with a couple of the unnecessary gimmicks that Sidi feels compelled to add to their top-of-the-line shoes. But I have always had problems keeping my Speedplay Zero cleats situated. Speedplay cleats are a little finicky because they contain moving parts for which the rest of the cleat functions as a housing; thus if you over-tighten the bolts you can inhibit the operation of the cleat. The bolts for the first layer of these rather complicated cleats can eventually loosen, requiring complete disassembly of the cleat to rectify. And maybe it’s because the shoes are pretty old now, but to my chagrin the intervals between re-positioning have gotten shorter.

My solution involved a trip to Home Depot for some anti-slip tape from 3M. It’s the stuff one uses for non-slip adhesive tapes on stairs or ladders. Just trace the shape of the cleat onto the tape, trim to size, and paste to your shoe in the exact desired position. Now the cleat has something grippy to cling, and the tape itself shows exactly where the cleat should be positioned.
