And while some cyclists simply hide indoors when the temps take a dive, I enjoy the fresh face snow and ice add to my familiar routes. As such, I'm always on the lookout for gear that makes my winter cycling adventures more enjoyable.

GORE Winter Clothing: Winter Wear Review Take 2

I would suggest this as a very good but not terribly exceptional outer shell.... I would have expected a much nicer pad in the bibs, and a structure that didn't put a seam in an area where the body articulates during pedaling.

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.
