Don’t let the colder weather stop you

bike favorite things review ride

Fall is in full swing and the temperatures are dropping quickly but don’t let it keep you from getting your bike rides in. With a few key items you can keep ridding; here are a few of our favorites.

fall ridding essentials

1. Lights, even if you are ridding during the day it is a good idea to have some bike lights blinking to help make you more visible, especially in our resent fog.

2. Fenders are well know but by adding some Rainy Day Biking reflective mud flaps to your fenders provide highway grade reflectivity on a full coverage mud flap, both front and rear; to help keep your feet and your friends behind you dry.

3. Castelli Nano Flex knee, arm, or leg warmers are not technically “waterproof,” Castelli’s Nanoflex fabric offers incredible resistance to wet conditions. And even though the rain rolls right off, the Nanoflex Arm Warmers still maintain great stretch, warmth and breathability.

4. The Castelli Diluvio shoecover has been a best seller for some time because it does exactly what it’s supposed to do— protect your feet—without much fuss. Fits both road and mountain bike shoes.

5. Pearl Izumi P.R.O. Barrier WxB Glove  is great for a rainy commute, ride, or race, the waterproof P.R.O. Barrier WxB Glove will keep your hands warm and dry, while not being to bulky or hot.

6. Skratch Hot Apples and Cinnamon drink mix and Powerbar performance energy blends are great ways to stay fueled with real food, with lots of electrolytes. Also on cold dry days grab a set of toe warmers to keep you extra toasty so you can keep ridding all day.

7. Castelli Leggero jacket is an extremely lightweight and packable layer. When you need protection from wind, cold, or rain, the best jacket is the one you have with you. It is windproof, water repellent, and breathable, and keeps your core warm when you need it most. And comes in both men and women’s cuts so it fits close to body without binding.

 

 

Kona Cinder Cone Review

2013 bike mountain bike review ride

Kona Cinder Cone

I love bikes. I’m not a bike tech, nor do I follow a strict training program—but I know that bikes make me happy! That being said, my experience in the cycling world has mostly been with my road bike, and racing track. Mountain biking? Definitely not.

The unfortunate thing about both road and track cycling is that weather is a huge factor; track gets cancelled in the event of rain, and it’s hard to convince me to get my road bike too wet and dirty once that rain really begins. In years past, once mid-September/October hits, I know it’s time to say goodbye to my bikes for the next 6+ months.

Once I realized that mountain bikes are generally fine with rain, I knew I had to try one out! After the folk at Mr. Crampy’s got me out for few trial rides, I was officially hooked. The search for a bike began.
Since I’m a beginner, I wanted a bike that would be good enough to allow me to develop my skills without breaking the bank. I needed a bike that I could learn on and grow with, but of a high enough quality that the bike itself wouldn’t hinder my progress or hold me back once I got the hang of it.

With so many options in mountain bikes, I tested out all sorts of combinations of sizes and styles. Kyle and MacBeth managed to wrangle up a wide assortment of bikes for me to borrow and try out, which was a huge help to someone as indecisive as I am.

As a shorter rider (5’4”), I found that I had a hard time with 29ers—the wheels were big and easy to roll over obstacles, but I felt like the bike was controlling me rather than the other way around. 26” wheels were much easier for me to handle, but the smaller wheels made it noticeably more difficult to get over things. For me, 27.5” wheels were the perfect compromise! This wheels size is somewhat new to mountain bikes (or so I’m told), but in my case, they truly did bring the best of both worlds together.

I also settled on a hardtail; riding full suspension bikes was nice and comfy, but the relative simplicity of hardtails made them a lot of fun to ride. I might change my mind later, but I figured a bike that would force me to learn good biking habits (versus a forgiving, full suspension bike) would ultimately be the best to start with.

Of course, we still had to find this elusive 27.5” hardtail that came in my size and fit my budget. Luckily, Mr. Crampy’s became a Kona dealer right around this time. Kona has a huge range of bikes, offering a great selection at all price points, and of every style and size imaginable. The Cinder Cone fit the bill perfectly for me—the fact that it’s a really attractive-looking bike was just the icing on the cake.

Tiger Mountain crew ride

I’ve taken this bike out a good number of times now, and I couldn’t be happier with my decision. The bike is surprisingly light for having an aluminum alloy frame, which was the biggest surprise. It feels solid while riding, but not definitely not clunky. It’s only been a few weeks, but I’m already learning how the bike will react in various situations, which means it’s predictable and reliable and not fussy. It climbs like a beast, but I also took it down Tiger Mountain, where it handled great even on the drops I sent it over. I can’t wait to explore more, develop my skills, and see all that this bike can really do! With just a few component upgrades later, I may not need to upgrade the bike for quite a while (if ever), since the frame itself is great.

Aside from the trails, I’ve spent a good amount of time tearing around my neighborhood and jumping off of things. I’m not going to lie—this bike makes me feel like a little kid, and is just plain FUN! And shouldn’t that be what a bike is all about?

The rear of the Prisma has been engineered and tuned around these features as well, offering exceptional compliance while  maintaining that incredible race performance that BH is famous for.
