Jawbone UP

Jawbone Up, like fitbit, is not completely accurate, but it is a new, fun technology that is like an adult video came - you get to passively play.

Fizik R1 Uomo

I cannot say enough good things about these shoes. I've owned many pairs of cycling shoes, from several manufacturers, over the years and came to expect that even the best shoes were about as comfortable as bowling shoes. Even my most expensive pair of Sidi's just felt "meh".



From the moment I first tried on the R1's I was amazed at how comfortable they felt. Easily the best pair of cycling shoes I've ever owned.

Considered Xterra but the were out of stock on my size. Found this suit at wetsuitoulet.com for $179. Watched the videos and read the reviews so I gave it a try. So far I'm very pleased with the decision. Fits as expected and happy they upgraded me to the current model. I would highly recommend.

Nice idea for taking some hydration on longer runs, but the poor design rendered it unusable as the water bottle kept poking me in the back which was very annoying and I could not tolerate that for my runs.

Torhans Aero 20

I really looked forward to trying this system out when I first saw it. Overall I'm a bit disappointed that it hasn't worked as well as I had hoped. I have to be sort of a contortionist to get a drink (even though the straw is right in front of my face). I made to many little adjustments to install my computer near the bottle and soften the noise a rattling bottle makes.

Bontrager Race X-Lite Hardcase

review by: hoffsquared

I am a regular bike commuter and reliability of equipment is key to successful commutes. My rear Bontrager Harc Case tire never got a flat during 4,000 miles of commuting in all types of weather and on a variety of road surfaces. I'd recommend giving these a look if you need durability and reliability on all your rides.

A rear light is an essential for regular bike commuting. This light has never failed me and has been with me on over 10,000 bike commuting miles. One very durable piece of equipment. Highly recommend.

Marvel Optics Sunglasses with prescription inserts

date: May 13, 2014
review by: hoffsquared
(2.5)

I bought these sunglasses with interchangeable lenses and prescription insert to replace older glasses I was wearing. I ended goggle-type glasses for riding in the dark and goggle sunglasses for daytime training. I did not want to spend a lot of money. I thought perhaps on online discount retailer might have good options.



I'm pleasantly surprised but would hesitate recommending this option for everyone. The glasses work but I've had issues with customer service.



I am not sure if I would go this route again. But...for $65 I now have 4 different lense options...and a prescription too!

Trainerroad Software

date: May 12, 2014
review by: Meathead
(4.5)

As a new cyclist, I had no idea what I was doing on the bike. I would just get out & ride or hop on the trainer & spin without a real goal. TrainerRoad changed that. It taught me what a real workout looks like. It helped me find a focus in my riding, reduce my weaknesses, and find that sweet spot. And for only $10 a month, you would be a fool not to use this as a part of your training. I highly recommend this tool for anyone who wants to get better on the bike, but especially anyone who is brand new & needs guidance on where to get started.

Ziploc reclosable plastic bags

date: May 7, 2014
review by: sheesleeva
(4.4)

While triathlete's, including myself, tend to dish out loads of money for whatever is branded as for triathletes or sports, one of the best gear recommendations ever has been the Ziploc bag. I take my iPhone with me on every run and every ride. I also sweat a lot more than the average person, and yet, my phone has never gotten wet because of sweat or rain while in a handy dandy Ziploc bag. I just put the phone in the bag, zip it up, leaving a small space for the headphones cord, jam it into my arm band or cycling jersey back pocket and off I go. On the occasion I will be wearing the phone on my waist in one of those waist belts, and as such, subjected to even more of my running sweat, I double bag the phone if I insist on having the headphones plugged it. Has worked like a charm on numerous runs, week after week, month after month. I switch bags as often as I do the armband holder, which makes the price per use less virtually nothing. No plugs to loose, bulbs to force out, cases to clean and at a fraction of the price.
