AfterShokz Wireless Trekz Titanium Headset

AfterSchokz.WEB

While I don't condone using any sort of earbuds or headset while cycling outside, I realize that some cyclists do in fact use them. If you must listen to tunes or answer a phone call, I'd highly recommend the AfterShokz Trekz Titanium wireless headset, which is ideal for outdoor exercising, as it allow you to hear ambient noise by utilizing bone-conduction technology. Also, the sweat-resistant design makes it ideal for workouts without fear of damage.

F3's FormMount Bar Mount

FormMountTopForwardDown.Cropped.WEBEver wish you had just a little more room for that extra device on your bars, or maybe just a cleaner cockpit? A new Chicago-based company's FormMount includes 2 rotating extender-arms and mounts to 2 existing stem faceplate screws, in 3 different configurations. You can attach the FormMount to the two top screws facing forward or facing rearward. You can also attach it to the two bottom screws facing forward. When attached facing rearward, this frees up the space out front across the entire handlebar.

The Barfly 4 Road Bike Mounts

BarflyRoadBikeMount.WEBThis system is slick! It may well be the last handlebar mount you will ever need. For $29.95-$39.95 (the price depends on whether you buy a bundled version that includes a camera or accessory mount), the total cost is less than most OEM handlebar mounts, and you basically are buying the ability to mount any possible head unit and a variety of accessories.

Jersey Bin

rbr jerseybin both sizes clear.web I've used a JerseyBin since 2009. It has worked exactly as promised, keeping contents safe and dry. For years, like so many other roadies, I carried my expensive smart phone in a plastic sandwich bag. I entrusted an item that cost a couple cents, and was made of thin, non-durable plastic, to protect my phone, which cost several hundred dollars, from sweat, rain, and other ride-related insults.

Upstand Bike Stand

upstand in use photo.web "Not a kickstand!" are the first words on the product description page on the company website. But the Upstand works much like one in "standing up" your bike. It includes two pieces: a 15g tab that you affix to your bike over the rear skewer; and the 25g stand itself, made of carbon-fiber tubing in two halves, held together by a shock cord, with an axial magnet on one end that holds it to the tab, and a rubber foot on the other, to keep it from skidding on the ground.

Kuat NV Hitch 2-Bike Rack

As impressed as I am with the design, features, function and quality of the NV, I am just as impressed by its appearance. When you buy a fancy vehicle, it's hard to get yourself to put anything on it. But the NVs lustrous grey and gold finish makes it a stunner, and a few people on our trip actually came up and asked us if the rack had been custom made by Mercedes for our RV. That's quite a compliment to Kuat's design, and perhaps why they named it what they did.

SKS Spaero Sport Pump

This is a great little pump. It has an outstanding design, is very light and looks good on the bike in an understated way. It is definitely a mini-pump in terms of size, weight and pressure capability. However, it will certainly do the job and get you home. SKS seems to have a winner here.

Slipstreamz Slips

I don't think I've ever been on an organized ride where I haven't seen someone place ear buds or earphones in their ears before starting the ride. Occasionally, I've passed (or been passed) by someone with a sound system on their handlebars blasting away so loud that I could not converse with my riding partner. I do not believe that any of these options is wise. The most dangerous among listening-while-riding devices are earphones.

Rocket Shower

The bottom line: the product works. It prevents odors and gets you clean quickly. It's easier than a strip-down sponge bath. In addition to commuting, it's easy to see that a good use might be as a take-along for any tours, just in case you need a quick clean-up for an off-the-bike excursion or an evening of camping with no shower available. It would also be great for one-day events no showers after the ride. As you're changing out of your kit, a quick Rocket Shower could certainly make the drive home a little more pleasant.
