Cool Gear: Chris King NoThreadset™

The 100th edition of the Tour de France is now a pleasant cigarette-inducing memory, and the United States Postal Service Presented by Berry Floor (also team with longest official name) delivered the most-worthy winner. Most of us are aware of the time and prep the team dedicates to their quests. With access to virtually any brand, winning races is concern #1, so choosing equipment to do this would be concern #2.

Product Review: Keywin Titanium Pedals

In the world of pedals, most of us probably ride Look, Shimano, or one or two other well-known brands. Let’s see a show of hands on this one – who’s heard of a company from down under called Keywin, who make possibly the lightest pedals on the market? That’s what I thought. Their Titanium pedals weigh in at 96 grams each, and make for one nice ride – here’s the scoop…

Tour Tech: TTT Time Machines

This year's Time Trial rigs are old looking, new looking and something in between. We got up close and personal with the rigs and they pretty much fell into two groups thanks to the UCI doing away with the futuristic look that TT bikes seemed to be going.

Pez-Clusive Debut: The EVanBockern Espirando

Only PezCycling News has the story...

The Velotron Review: Pez-Test

In early June I made drove to Seattle to visit the guys at RacerMate, and take a first hand look at – and ride on, their newest training machine – the Velotron. This thing is like the Frankenstein of trainers – you can create your own monster!

Cool Gear: Biemme Classic Pro Bib Shorts

The name says it all - Italian manufacturer Biemme – (pronounced bee-em-may) produces a full line of performance clothing for cycling and other sports. One item is a full-on pro level bib short, with so many technical advantages that it’s almost impossible to call it “Classic”.

Giant TCR Composite 1: PEZ-Test

Most job’s have their perks, some more than others. Little did I think when I started PezCycling News that one day I’d be test riding some of the best racing machines available… This thought, (and many others) popped into my somewhat numbed headspace as I stamped out the 13km climb to 1100 meters up Cypress Mountain in the locally popular 39x23 gear...
