Thomas 's Bio

Coffee wakes me up after I get up. My legs usually drive me after I get on my bike, but if an automotive is my transport for the day, then usually that will be the driving force. I am from Melbourne, Australia, and I am going places; not too sure where, but when I am there I will let you know!
Oh, it's the coffee shop, I am going to the coffee shop...

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got this bike because the price point allowed me to to experience mountain bike riding. I hate the idea of thrashing someone else's things. This has been great for me, and it didn't take me long to realise I really enjoy off-road riding. It is a bullet-proof MTB, and I have thrashed this thing as hard as I could. I would highly recommend this bike to anyone thinking about trying mountain biking. It weighs a ton, but with that weight comes durability; perfect for entry-level. It looks great, and the price is impossible to beat. X7 and X9 combo, with no front derailleur to worry about, and nice brakes and fork. I have raced it too, no worries.

We were looking for a fork mount roof carrier system to fit our Forester factory roof racks, and ended up going for these. They are the best roof racks I have used. They lock the bikes, there is a cut out for disc brakes if you're a MTB'er, they look great, and they are really easy to use. I can't say much more, but these are the best product I've bought this year.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I bought these to keep my hands warm while cycling. Before I used them, I also ordered the gore-tex heli glove. I thought that because of the wind chill on my hands while out cycling, the gore-tex would just give me that little bit extra warmth that these ones might not. I didn't test ride these ones though. They were more comfortable that the gore-tex version, and the liner is also removable. So my 4 stars is based purely on an assumption that the gore-tex would give me better wind protection when the temperature is a fair way under freezing. I think for most non-cyclists, this pair of gloves would do the trick

I bought this to complete my wife's townie. Her bike is already cool as, but when I saw this, I had to buy it. Super cool, and looks great. The inside of the holder has a nice foam lining to give extra grip on the portable coffee mug, and also to prevent any scratches on it too. I'm a big fan and so is she.

Hi JP Madden,
A cyclocross bike is going to be a pretty good option for your weight. A mountain bike will be even better. The cross bike will give you a similar set up to a road bike, just being a robust version of a road bike, essentially.
If you want to stick with a road bike, you can add to its strength by having a strong, heavy set of wheels to go with it.

I bought this last month to monitor my heart rate while training for Tour of Utah. It is the most basic heart rate monitor available here, but that was all I wanted it for. It never missed a beat the whole time I was wearing it! For the basic means I was looking for, this is the perfect heart rate monitor, and I am already planning on using it cross training in the off-season too.

I think it will be a good starting point Randy. The price is very good, and if it turns out you get a lot of enjoyment out of cyclo cross racing, then you can easily upgrade to a high-end model. I think this will be robust enough for you to get a real feel for the racing.

As with all Louis Garneau clothing, this jersey is going to be a fantastic addition to your cycling wardrobe. It has a great cut, and super comfortable material. It is a replica of our RealCyclist.com Pro Team jersey. The only difference is probably the white zip as opposed to our black one. The pockets are a great size and easily accessible, and of course, you will be styling in the coolest looking team jersey of season 2011!
