Leh Cycling Goods: Camo Leather Bar Tape

Leh Cycling Goods makes leather cycling products in Austin, TX, including a selection of bar tapes. Naturally, the design I gravitated to was the camo pattern. This tape comes in plain, stitched or perforated and stitched. If camo’s not your thing, check out their other colors too at Leh Cycling Goods. If you want something custom, they do that too!

Floyd’s of Leadville Expands their CBD Supplements

Floyd’s of Leadville has expanded their CBD oil line, with multiple options now, in various milligram or milliliter servings. CBD oil has changed my recovery process and helped me get a better night’s sleep after big days on the bike. That’s not just a pitch either and I’ll go one step further. Two months ago, I decided to take some time off from alcohol. It was running my life and I was using it to disconnect or unwind from a busy day, but mostly it helped me sleep at night. The problem is, as I get older, alcohol takes a beating on my body and I just felt like shit all the time. I switched to smoking more weed and taking these Floyd’s of Leadville CBD capsules to aid in sleeping, or smoking a mellow sativa-high weed. After two months, I feel better, both about myself and about my riding. Which is very important since my job is bikes!

Now, not everyone can walk into a dispensary and buy weed. I understand that, but these capsules will ship anywhere in the US since CBD oil is natural, THC-free supplement. It really does make a difference. Hell, I even give my dog a pet CBD supplement to help his arthritis. See more information at Floyd’s of Leadville!

Tis the Season for Spooky Rides

This post is coming in late, because we didn’t finish our ride until late today. We saw some spooky shit on our ride. If you look closely, you can see Kyle in there and maybe the dude pushing his bike up, carrying the compound bow and arrows too. It was really wild, but we didn’t stick around to find out what he was up to.

Hopefully, everyone is having a good All Hallow’s Eve!

Sinewave Cycles New Beacon Generator Lamp with Built-In USB Outlet

Charging your devices from a generator hub is a great option for a touring bike or bikepacking rig. Unfortunately, it’s not usually the easiest to setup, often requiring splicing into the wiring. The newest made in the USA Sinewave Cycles product looks to change that with the Beacon generator lamp. This lamp has an integrated USB outlet, allowing you to either charge a battery pack or your device directly while maintaining a flicker-free beam. These are shipping now and come in a variety of colors. See more info at Sinewave Cycles. Kyle from Outer Shell has a great install posted on his Instagram, which I highly recommend checking out as well!
