Sportful Winter Gear: Winter Wear Review

Here in the Midwest, having the right gear for winter cycling is the difference between truly enjoying rides and simply suffering through them.

Silca Sicuro Ti Bottle Cages: Quick Review

They cost $70.00. Each. Yes. That is a buck and a half for two water bottle cages. I know, I know. But the sexy-factor calls to me in a siren song of silky Ti goodness. On my Lynskey frame it is just flat out wicked cool looking, if that can even be applied to a bottle cage bolted to a bike.
