Camelbak Alpine Explorer review

Posted: 18th May 2011 by 7ucyClark in review, riding

I’ve carried, to this date, three hydration bladders during my bicycling history.  The first was a Camelbak H.A.W.G. that I received as a gift in ’98.  I’d used that until 2010, when I felt it had earned retirement, and I’d earned an upgrade. As such, I’d invested in an Osprey Raptor 14.  I was pretty […]

New Thing is Bike

Posted: 2nd May 2011 by affehaus in design, geek stuff, riding, tech, things I need

I’m not much of a road rider; basically the only time my tires see asphalt is if the trail has a road that crosses through. But I might be persuaded to compete with traffic if I had one of these. The Alpha has been designed by engineering students at the University of Pennsylvania, and the […]

So… my first thought on this was, Ooh! Super-torque! My second was, oh– no noise [my girlfriend echoed the thought, but put it more eloquently… “no vroom“] Then, reading the article, 17 million? There are currently “17 million” electric bikes & scooters on the roads today? Given the number, I would have thought they’d be […]

New Thing for Bike

And just in time for Cinco de Mayo! The Trek-Gary Fisher Transport & Taco Bike! Never before have I read such a beautifully poetic product description! The word “transcendent” comes to mind, but I’m so fevered with awe that I can’t frame it in a sentence. All I know is: Taco Sunday and bike riding […]

New Thing ‘is’ Bike

Posted: 4th April 2011 by 7ucyClark in riding, things I need

Audi has now joined the ranks of Jeep and BMW: they’ve got a bicycle with their logo on it. Not willing to limit themselves to such ‘common’ materials as aluminium, or carbon fiber, Audi has collaborated with Renovo Hardwood Bicycles (yes– “hardwood”) to create the vehicles that will represent their foray into two-wheeled technology. There […]

Osprey with a hernia

Posted: 21st March 2011 by 7ucyClark in riding

So my Osprey bladder took a dump… no– no, that’s not the right analogy. It became incontinent. This is the second osprey bladder what suffered a breach, this within a 6 month period. I’m moving on. I’ve recently taken delivery of one CAMELBAK ALPINE EXPLORER PACK Black/Fennel Seed, 100 Oz ($40, Jenson USA). Review to […]
