Indoor Bike Trainer:There is a trainer to fit all budgets. Some are just less noisy, and don’t burn the rubber off your tires. We like Cyclops because of the smooth feel and progressive resistance. If you really want to splurge, aComputrainer is the best indoor trainer to have. Spinscan allows you to compare pedal stroke, and you can ride anyplace in the world without leaving the comfort of your home.
Cold Weather Clothing: Cycling clothing can be expensive, but you usually get what you pay for. For the inside, we like Craft’s new line of base layer clothing. For the outside, we like Pearl Izumi’s Pro Softshell Jacket because it can be used running or riding. If you like riding through the coldest of winter, the men’s Castelli Polare Bibs will let you do just that. Two good options to keep your digits warm: Sugoi’s Firewall Z Gloves and GORE Windstopper Radiator gloves. Do you like to run in snow, wind, and rain? The Brooks Utopia Jacket will be your best friend through all kinds of weather!
Custom Bike Fit: If you are considering buying a new bike, we urge you to shop around and get a professional bike fit before making any decisions. It’s difficult to know who is good at bike fitting, and who just ‘kind-of-knows’ enough to set you on a bike. Unfortunately, even some very well-known organizations don’t always provide the level of service you would expect. Making recommendations are very individualistic, so if you have any questions, or would like advice about someone you are considering, email us!
