Specialized FatBoy - A True 4 Season Bike

Paul and I were discussing the Specialized Fatboy this week. He's been riding the fat tire bike during the summer on our group rides and can keep up in general.

The possibilities are endless when riding the Fatboy.Specialized describes the FatBoy this way:"Fun-loving riders like you are looking for a bike for e...

Specialized Ambush Bicycle Helmet

Specialized Ambush Bicycle Helmet
The New Ambush Helmet I use myself, is a new helmet from Specialized. It is a full coverage helmet obviously providing safety for off-road applications. It even has a visor that goes up for those who use goggles and want to put them underneath there when they are done their bike ride. The beauty of this helmet for those of us who are a little more cross-country is ... yes it is a full coverage helmet but it has fantastic airflow so I started riding with one in the heat of the ...

Review: Kona Dew

Review: Kona Dew
This is the Kona Dew which is one of our best selling entry level bikes simply because it is so versatile. I call this the urban blaster. You can cruise with the family. You can go out for a fitness ride. People will use it as a inter-city commuter. You can't kill this bike and yet it is comfortable. It is laid out similar to a mountain bike in the sense it is sporty but it is also comfortable. You can always change where the handlebars are. We do that for most people. But the price-point, thes...

Cry me a river! A Testimonial to Fat Biking

Cry me a river! A Testimonial to Fat Biking
The evolution of the Fatbike has caught the bicycle industry by surprise! Few expected the demand for these bikes to swell at a pace that has outstripped the manufacturers’ ability to supply. I have ridden fat bikes for a few years as a great alternative/go-to bike for winter when regular bikes just couldn't make sense of the snow! The limitations of the earlier generation of fat bikes were obvious but accepted. They were heavy, sluggish and slow handling but excelled in the snow. Awesome! Let's...
