Hirobel Frame Clamp: Quick Review

The Hirobel Clamp is a device developed to allow you to mount a bicycle to a repair stand without directly clamping to the bicycle with a repair stand clamp. This is beneficial when you have a bicycle with a suspension seat post, a dropper post, or a seat mast/aero seat tube design. The Hirobel Clamp is sort of like a bicycle rack for a car, with a cradle type design, and the bar of the Hirobel Clamp then is held by the repair stand.

State Bicycle Co. Warhawk: At The Finish

If you can get by the limitations of the Warhawk- dedicated single speed, limited tire clearances, and limited versatility- then you will be rewarded with one of the better handling, better riding gravel/all road/commuter rigs you can find. For the dollar amount that State Bicycle Co. asks for this bike, I cannot find anything in my experience that compares to how nice it handles and how fun it is to ride.

Noble Bikes GX5 Gravel Bike: Checkpoint

The GX5 is pretty smooth, but the fork isn't quite up to steel fork feel. That said, it handles in a stable, but not sluggish manner, over choppy roads and deep gravel. The light weight is very nice and the total package is fun to ride on. The wheel and tire limitations are somewhat of a bummer, as is the slightly too stiff fork, but this bike is very impressive so far.
