As bikers, sooner or later, we're going to get stuck with a tire puncture. When you have the privilege of lane sharing, it can be even more common because cars aren't keeping that part of the road free from debris. I've used the mushroom style plugs and the sticky-rope-glue style plugs, and I find the... Continue Reading →
Revival has a new album. It's pretty badass.
Yeah, I know. It's been a crazy summer with way less riding than I planned, and way less posting than I planned.
