PEZ-Test: Colnago C50 vs. C40

When you’re in a bike battle with Colnago, it’s best to fight pasta with pasta, so to see how the new World Champs Edition C50 stacks up, we thought we would stand it next to the tried and tested C40 and see if the hoopla is all it’s cracked up to be…

Hot Gear: Hincapie WindTex Polar Jacket

Thanks to the guys at Hincapie Sportswear for eliminating one more excuse for not riding in the cold … Their WindTex Polar jacket is not only one of the warmest jackets I’ve found – it’s also by far the lightest! This thing is good…

Wheels: American Classic 350 w/ Sapim’s

American Classic 350 Sapim’s! After all the carbon tubulars we’ve rolled through, we thought it'd be nice to show a set of wheels for good ol' clinchers that won’t empty your wallet and still has better features than lots of "hype"-0-wheels.

Cool Gear: Adidas Shields Glasses

Cool Gear: Carnac Quartz 264 Shoes

For some time we cyclists have known the name Carnac whether we want to or not. Their shoes, clung tightly to the feet of countless pros, draped over the back covers of magazines, purporting their greatness. Hincapie. Van de Velde. The list goes on.

Cool Gear: Fi’zi:k Arione Saddle
