Quad Lock: Quadruple the Security

This actually happened to me not too long ago – I was cycling along the West Coast stretch with my phone securely clipped onto my bike mount, or so I had thought.

Product Review: Steve & Leif Magnetic Bicycle Trainer

There will always be a debate between stationary bicycle trainers and rollers, one of which being their respective effectiveness.

This debate is probably for another article, but for those unfamiliar with bike trainers, they are indoor cycling simulators that you would hook up your own bike with.

Fulcrum Racing Zero

Wheelsets, some says that they make the most difference in your ride. Do they? This is where we find out about the Fulcrum Racing Zero wheelset. Fulcrum Racing Zero is at the higher end spectrum aluminium road wheelset that Fulcrum they themselves have to offer.

Yes it may seem like a pretty hefty sum to pay for a aluminium wheelset. However it does have its merits in the weight department due to the fact that it is actually lighter than some of the carbon wheelset range fulcrum has to offer, coming in only at a weight of approximately 1520 grams. With weight, they too topped it off with an aerodynamic edge despite being a pretty shallow wheelset, it comes with straight pull aero spokes.
