Often pro teams are the testing grounds for new cool products. The Kenda p/b Geargrinder squad is no exception. Kenda has been producing quality clincher tires for years, however for 2010 they are stepping it up a notch. I got the heads up on the new Kenda tubular tires that will be hitting the streets […]
I just got a sneak peek of the built up team issue Team Type 1 Colnago CX-1. Can you say bellissima? Pearl white, outfitted with Shimano Dura-Ace 7900, PRO bar and stem and rolling on Kenda tires, this bike is going to be crossing a lot of finish lines first.

Not quite sure what it means, but I like it… I went mountain biking for the first time in about eight years and didn’t kill myself! I’m going to try and do a few XC races next year with fellow magazine editor Mark Jordan (decline) This is the trail we rode. New Scott road shoes […]
