Grant Baron's Bio

If you ride bikes I'm the guy that your spouse, or significant other, loathes. I'm fueling your cycling addiction 24/7. Chainlove and Bonktown are where you can find me giving the hookup and shootin' the shit. I love to ride, and I love to help you ride too.

This bag is huge. You could fit a corpse in there and you would only have to chop it into a few pieces. There are only two pockets so all of your stuff gets mingled together and things that you don't want to touch each other probably will. I use this to hold all of my downhill mountain bike gear; full-face helmet, armor suit, knee/shin armor, Leatt brace, gloves, goggles, and the small pocket holds all of my extra parts. Love this bag.

I bought one of these after doing a lawn dart style over the bars crash into some rocks. I'll admit it's not the coolest piece of gear to own and I wasn't stoked about the price but it does give piece of mind knowing that it's there. I was concerned that the brace would be big, bulky, and that I would feel like a dog wearing a cone from the vet but when I got it I was surprised at how unobtrusive it actually is. The fit is really customizable. After one or two laps out on the DH trail I don't even notice it while on the bike, and hey, it costs less than a ride in an ambulance let alone a wheelchair.

I was stoked when I ordered these gloves. TLD usually has stuff dialed. However, when I put these gloves on they were too big and all the rubber protective stuff made them tent up like a high school boy's jeans. The velcro straps don't seem to line up correctly either. I usually wear a large in gloves but I would size down if I were buying them again.

I was a bit skeptical of this jacket when I first saw it, however when I put it on my opinion immediately started to change. The Cutter Asymm Softshell Anorak has a slim but not restricting fit. The fabric is pretty wind resistant and the subtle styling is right up my alley. I used this jacket on a 20 degree mountain bike ride and it was perfect. All I wore underneath was a 3/4 mountain bike jersey and I stayed at almost perfect temp. The fabric is highly wind resistant but let in just enough air to let the jacket breathe well. I feel that it's the best riding jacket that I've ever used.

My Five Ten Freeriders are awesome. Comfortable fit, stiff sole, grippy rubber. Any other shoe is a waste of money if you're riding platform pedals. The uppers are super solid as well. I'm tempted to have another pair as backup but I also doubt they'll be wearing out anytime soon.

The Dakine Nomad Pack is awesome. Dakine really nailed it. They put a lot of organizational pockets into it and there is tons of storage. I like to be prepared for most scenarios on the trail and this pack lets me do that. I can carry my food, a jacket, pump/tools, extra parts, tubes, etc. The MP3 pocket is in a great place right up against your back so it's protected from any crashes you might endure. All in all this is the best pack I've owned.

The Fox Racing Flux Bike Helmet has a great shape. Giro helmets don't seem to fit my head very well. It seems like the are too tight in length. However the fox helmet is very comfortable. The padding is in all the right places and it doesn't seem to drip sweat into my eyes as much as other helmets have in the past.

The Bell Drop sizing is intended for Charlie Brown or Stewie from the Family Guy. If you're going to get one size down from what you normally get. I wear a large in THE helmets and the large Bell was huge. It was way too wide.
