Nicholas Barile's Bio

I am driven by harmony in life. An acute balance between business and pleasure. Anytime I can combine the two I will definitely take advantage. My friends and family are all on the same page. I thrive on being creative and well reviewed, when at the same time I need to be distracted. Above all, I just want the most out of life! Oh yes, and my wife Camille is amazing...

Fit: True to size

I use these bad boys for road and mountain cycling in the spring.summer/fall. They are the perfect height cuff for me...not tool tall, but taller than your standard, old school cycling sock. I go black, it lasts longer because you don't see dirt stains for mud spray or dust and grime when you are getting rad. At this point they are the only socks I'll buy to ride in, barring winter needs.

Long days in the saddle call for an hydration supplement that be consumed for hours without giving you gut rot. This is the only one that works for me. I like all the flavors, but Pineapple is my favorite. Use Skratch Labs Hydration Mix for exercise only...not like a juice or soda...too sweet.

I run XT pedals on my mountain bikes, and my cross bike. I use the same shoe while riding all 3 bikes. The SH56 SPD cleats hold up to all the abuse I put them through on all 3 bikes. They have a good solid interface with the pedal for the long life of the cleat...Others don't, in my experience. The float and release angles are just right, and I have not stripped or seized a bolt yet.

I love this shirt. Runs a bit small and slim. I went large and I'm usually a medium. The design details are refined and the fit is spot on for me. The fabric breaths well and has a slight stretch for extra comfort and increased range of motion. Bottom line, classy comfortable button-down that performs, and is built well.

These baby's are nice...They seem like they are going to hold up to daily driver type abuse this summer. They are slimmer through the led than I am used to, but they are not skinny hipster shorts. They are somewhere in between. Other than that they are true to size.

Yes, a spring glove, but pretty darn warm if it stays dry. Race glove?...not too sure... To me a race glove should offer mare tactile handlebar feel and be a little less bulky and loose feeling. Great for training on the bike or XC skiing though. or casual wear if you are into that...Does the job it was intended to do well though.

The Mavic Cyclone Jacket has many great features. I love the off-set zipper, the zip close storage pockets, and the super soft and ergonomic sleeve cuffs. The fit is a little large throughout the shoulders and arms, but it makes for great movement and comfort on the bike. The jacket blocks the wind to keep you warm, yet it breaths well to keep you dry. Looks nice when forced to wear bib tights. I dig it.

SmartWool PhD Outdoor Ultralight Mini Sock is the sock of choice for my spring and summer outdoor activitidads... From hiking to trail runs, to strollin down the block headed to the b-ball court in a wrapped in a sick pair of Reebok Pumps, for a pickup game. Bottom line? Keeps the dogs dry and smellin good, blister free, and comfey!

These TNF Beacon Hill Chukkas are rad looking and they are hands down the most comfortable chukka boot on the planet out of the box...My only worry is that they might start out too soft leaving the possibility for a shorter lifespan. I cant be sure yet though. People sure compliment me on these shoes though. So there is that.

I took back some "are-eee-eye" softshell pantalones that where coming unraveled after light to moderate usage and bought these Mormot Scree Softshell Pants. First impression, comfortable, stretchy, and almost pajama like, yet rugged! I know huh. I have hiked in them several times in cool to cold weather, and even downright frigid conditions with merino base pantalones and they rock the house...they run a touch big for me but I have shorter than average inseam and that is typical of any pants I buy...

Im using this top for cold weather trail running, mountain biking, hiking, and XC ski days. It is very versitile, light-weight, warm, and blocks wind well. Additionally it is stretchy and comfortable to move in. I was pleasantly surprised with my overall satisfaction. I normally go full zip for this type of top but the 3/4 zip is just right on this...

Great hoodies are hard to come by. I usually fond one that I like and buy 3 of them so when I wear one out I have a freshie to go with. This is one of those. Take advantage of the great deal, and the pro-wicking fabric, its cozy and durable. The hood and the shoulders are water resistant incase you get caught in a drizzle. Very good product.

What more can you ask for? I had a pair of Nick Fannings for 8 years and I just replaced them with these bad boys. The Reef X-S-1 Sandal is a marginal improvement upon the perfection of the Fannings. Close toed shoes are now relegated to weddings and job interviews....if that. Looks like these puppies will last me at least as long as my last pair. Do your dogs a favor and get a half size larger than your shoe size unless you plan on running from something or somebody in them...they will thank you. The bottle opener is ok, but I only drink beer form a can like god intended so I don't use it. Plus, so you really want to crack open a Hiennie with your flop after stepping in Lassie's business? Didn't think so.

Running the Easton EA70 Flat/Wide bars on my single-speed 29er. I dig them. They are wide, but not too wide which is nice. Didn't have to cut them down to fit my needs as a 5'9ish dude. They are a little stiff for my rigid setup but if you are running a suspension fork up front you have no reason to go avoid this bar. They look great with the stealthy grey graphics and match the EA70 stem perfectly. They are light, and a great vale as well. It will probably last forever...literally.
