I managed to put about a little over 100 miles on the seatpost at my local park, Hop Brook Lake Park in Naugatuck and Middlebury Connecticut. I must say I’m not only impressed with the Transfer Seat Post but I am more impressed on how much of a game changer it is for my riding. Going over obstacles like trees and rocks is so much simpler and safer with the seat out of the way. The seatpost is also a real benefit on steep drops. It is such a relief to get my butt way back over the rear wheel and not have my shorts get stuck on the seat while I return to riding position.
The Fox Transfer Dropper Seatpost is an outstanding addition to a mountain bike and worth every dollar it cost. Operation is smooth and deliberate and performance is flawless.read more

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

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. Tired of this I spoke to the great folks as Class Cycles in Southbury, CT. They suggested a setup of Maxxis Tubeless. 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

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
