I ran into some cool products this week. Our awesome Showers Pass rep flew in from Bike Glamour Capital (Portland, Oregon) to show us some new jackets and raingear. We are fortunate to have them since we have lots of commuters going up and down the metra train tracks. They offer great design, awesome quality and have the best service. Yes, you get to talk to Live people in America.
I then went on ranting about lights since a fellow from Sycamore got killed a few days ago. I never want to hear that anyone is riding at night without lights. Not worth the money, the loss. Period.
I brought in a bunch of Super Flash Turbos and the amazing Nite Rider Cherry Bomb.
The Cherry Bomb is Brighter than the Turbo. We tested both lights today.
|Showers Pass Hydration System. Middle point and front point are magnetic. Front has string and will self retract.|
|42 oz of liquid. So two large bottles plus two on frame equals 80+ oz of liquid on bike. Not bad, not bad|
|Another view of this great product. Notice zipper. That opens and takes your repair kit.|
|View from Right Side.|
|Veleau from Showers Pass.|
|Schwalbe Mondial. They Unfortunately got rid of the Extreme, a great Trans Iowa tire and replaced it with the mondial.|
|simiar to extreme but the middle has more of a center ridge.|
|Salsa Wanderlust rack to be fitted on custom Salsa Vaya. A great rack but will not fit all bikes.|
|These seem burlier than the previous ones. They are stainless, hold well and don't yuck up your bottles.|
|The badass Cherry Bomb. This thing is very bright.|
|One dozen Super Flash Turbos waiting to be sold in a couple days. I test all the lights before they are sold.|
So these are some items that I get excited about.
Thanks for reading and hope we can ride soon,
