Brand Snobs?

I’ll admit to being a bit of a label-hound when it comes to my bike stuff, but other times I want the cheapest part to do the job. Then there’s that special case where the brand name part is the SAME as the knock off. Apart from graphics and color - these wheel bags are identical. I have a couple of each in my garage right now and after inspection it turns out they are the same. I got the Performance bags for $9 on sale!

I’m a big fan of wheel bags. Keep yourself and your car clean if you need to lug them around. Protect them fragile spokes from people trying to pack overstuff the trunk on the way to the race.

Hugger rolls the Reynolds Attack

The Attack wheels have been on my Trek for a week now and I’m reluctant to give them back.

First off they are Carbon Clinchers – “Everyday Carbon” they say. How cool is that? I prefer tubulars for race day, but I can guiltlessly ride these to work without fear of being stranded with a flat. I’ve been running them in place of my Bontrager Race-X-Lite Aeros and the difference is noticeable.

Cascade gets Competitive (sort of)

Reading about Cascade’s High Pass Challenge and the related High Performance Cycling group, I thought that has all the elements of a bike race, ‘cept they don’t call it a race.

The HPC is for the Cascade cyclist that wants to “ride fast, hard, far, and climb hills.” The High Pass challenge is an epic ride and whether they call it racing or not, you can bet cyclists are thinking right now of how to win it, place, set a personal best, or drop that dude that’s dangling just behind them and doesn’t take a pull.

Bike Path Art

I first noticed the grizzly bear, then a girl in boots with a russian hat, and now the wolves on columns under the West Seattle Bridge near the Spokane Street Swing Bridge. I think they’re lithographed decals and wonder who the artist is … anyone know?
