Immediately I became interested in the Pro Bike Tool Bottle Cage because an Amazon review points out that the bottle cage works well with Poland Springs water bottles as well as the Camelbak Podium Big Chill. Those two points sold me on this bottle cage. This cage being made from aluminum allows for slight bending of the metal to fit water bottles that may be less than ideal.Read More
I’m always at my best or should I say in my element when in the company of twenty somethings. People my own age often act old. I have little time for that. In an interesting timing I have a new coworker, early 20’s who I have found refreshing to be around. We share many similar likes and interesting differences. He also happens to be an avid mountain biker and a willing participant to contribute to this website.
If all goes as planned or even close to planned spring 2017 will see this site grow with useful, original and fun content. It is also my expectation that this relationship and website revival will be exactly what I need get my health back in order.Read More

Let’s back up a bit. A couple years ago, the first two years with my Trek Rumblefish Elite I was plagued with flat tires. Something about the terrain at West Rock Ridge State Park, Lake Wintergreen in Hamden, Connecticut was not tire tube friendly.

The conversation actually ended up in a new set of wheels but that story is for another day. Anyhow once switching to tubeless mountain bike tires I remained flat free for nearly three years.Read More
