You could spend hundreds of dollars on bike shorts with fancy names but when you catch them on a sharp edge while strutting around your local coffee shop before your ride and tear a hole in them you will not feel so bad wearing these shorts. They have great fit and a nice chamois that will get you through the toughest of hammerfests while not breaking the bank.

I got my first Craft top about 20 years ago while Nordic ski racing. Still have it and many more Craft items. Hands down the best baselayer I have ever worn. Who's going to keep you warm and dry the Swedes or some company that makes lycra for football players. I probably wear a Craft item everyday for 5+ months of the year as a Nordic ski coach. It fits tight so it pulls the sweat off of your body. There have been countless times where I am doing Nordic ski intervals or racing my buddies up a skin track where you are soaked at the top but by the time you are ready to go down the Craft shirt has you dry, warm and ready for the next round. Sure the piece holds your stink but you are working out and the garlic burger and bourbon has to escape somewhere. Don't mess around with other baselayers just get Craft.

Who would have guessed biodegradable bike lube. A little goes a long way so make sure you wipe your chain after application. It last quite a while and when sprayed with citrus degreaser come right off of the chain, chainrings and cassette, making your drivetrain sparkle again. I hate a squeaky chain and the 2oz bottle goes into my pack while I leave the 4oz bottle in my shop.

April on the Green can have every kind of weather and when the weather turns bad and the fishing turns on, you don't want to be stuck sitting in the boat or on the bank with cold hands. These gloves are the best fishing gloves I have ever used. Pull back the mitt when fishing, or pull it over your fingers when rowing. They have low bulk which is great when fishing but super warm for when you get caught in the spring snow storm. The wear resistant pads keeps the gloves from wearing out when you have caught your fill and it's time to row.

Sure there are lighter grips out there but if you want all day hand comfort plus multiple hand positions these are the grips for you. I have them on my single speed and geared mountain bikes. They do take a little getting used to and getting the correct position. Perfect grips for bikepacking.

It's not called "Black Hole Duffle Bag" for nothing. It holds a lot of stuff. I just found a pair of socks I thought I lost on a fall trip in minePerfect for a weekend in the desert or if packed well will work for week long trips abroad. Great, durable fabric, shoulder straps and cool colors make this a bag everyone should own.
