Outlier: Runweight Shorts
Outlier-shorts

One of the reasons why I love Outlier is they’re always looking to make their products better, or at least better-adapted to however you find yourself using them. Their new Runweight shorts are even lighter weight and have no seams at the crotch, making them virtually chaffing-free. Perfect for running, jogging, swimming, cycling, bass fishing and even just sitting on your ass, poolside.

Now if I can just figure out what Lars is running from!

Blackburn Introduces the Central 100 front and 20 Rear Lighting System
Central100front-central20rea

I was using my Central lights for a few months now, on multiple bikes before I lost them in all my travels. I particularly liked the rear, because I run a generator lamp on my tourer and it wasn’t annoyingly bright for people riding behind me. I even found the front to be exceptionally bright for what many would consider a “blink light”.

The Central lights mark a new push for Blackburn as they will slowly be releasing new products over the next few months, most of which I’ve had hands-on experience with and all of which I’m anxiously awaiting more testing time.

K-Edge Garmin Mounts and Chain Catchers are Made in the USA

So, the other day, I’m thinking I need to buy a Garmin mount for my new Argonaut, but I didn’t want a plastic one. After seeing the K-Edge mounts all over, but having never owned one, I thought, what the hell, a balleur mount for a balleur bike.

This is a totally random post, but after spending some time at the K-Edge site, I really admire what they’re doing. Buying made in the USA – or any domestically-produced – accessory like this keeps an industry alive and keeps people employed. I’m ok with that.

Check out K-Edge‘s offerings at their site and ask your local bike shop to carry them!

Ritchey Brings Back the Bullmoose Bar in Carbon for 2015
Ritchey_Bullmoose-01

This classic shape is often rendered in steel and is not the lightest option for a modern day race machine. For those looking for a classic Ritchey look for the XC bike, look no further. 35 years since it was first introduced to the MTB world, the Bullmoose returns. Just as stylish, but a little lighter…

The Ritchey WCS Bullboose features a 9 degree sweep with a 6 degree angle, weighs in at 280 grams for the 80mm and comes in three sizes: 70x720mm, 80x730mm and 90, 100 & 110x740mm. Retail is set at $299.95.

Initial Reaction: Brooks C15 Narrow Cambium Saddle
Brooks-B15-cambium-saddle-review-1

This saddle has been creating quite the stir and rightfully so. I’ve been riding the C17 on and off for several months and it’s great, but I usually ride a narrower saddle, so it was never ideal. When Brooks England gave me two C15 Cambiums to try out on my bikes, I was eager to see how it felt on my touring bike and a road bike. First up, is my Geekhouse Woodville touring bike.

I’ve been pedaling around today on the C15 and I’m already in love with it… See more below
