Dainese Enduro Knee Guard V2 Review - May 2, 2019, 3:12 p.m.

Growing up in Hawaii I was subject to the original Japanese version of the Power Rangers and other equally odd 'people dressed up as weird looking bad guys' on a weekly basis. Always liked their armor. Hahaha. Then when Robotech was being shown on TV after school....

Dainese Enduro Knee Guard V2 Review - May 1, 2019, 11:42 p.m.

Dainese appeals to my inner anime geek and all those live action Japanese shows I watched as a kid. I am tempted by these but if I buy any more pads off the internet without trying them on, my riding buddies will beat me with the aluminum top tube from a Mongoose Rockadile circa 1995...

Glad they fixed them.

My Three Favourite Bikes from Sea Otter - April 18, 2019, 10:09 a.m.

Oh yes. I so wanted a pair of those cranks. I have a spider (somehow) floating around in my parts bin. It's one of those parts you just like to fondle. 

That Vancouver Syncros was awesome. I also have several Syncros t-shirts that I'm hoping will help me put the monkeys through college too..

And yes, that Syncros seatpost was fantastic. I think mine is living in my voodoo CX bike these days. Sooo miss old school Syncros.

I have a friend who sold another a friend his bow-ti. The newer owner of it crashed more on that bike than anything else he rode. I would ride behind him and watch the frame move in such odd directions as he attempted to ride technical stuff. I seem to recall he would launch his water bottle on occasion as well...I think the mount was on the outside of the downriver. 

Don't get me wrong, it's gorgeous and a work of genius but not something I wanted to ride.

Patagonia Dirt Roamer Short & Trail Bike Henley Review - March 31, 2019, 10:38 a.m.

That's...the sign of an iron taint. I'm impressed.

I really like the Patagonia bike clothing I've bought. I'm currently washing my new bibs, hopefully they'll get worn this coming week. 

At the risk of asking TMI...based on your saddle review...what do you wear under your outer shorts?

Dear Uncle Dave: What is the best bike for the Apocalypse? - March 12, 2019, 1:17 a.m.

I've got some lx v brakes, xt thumbies and an eight speed cassette for my apocobike. 

Yours' is pretty good though. I think the fat tires will be key.

Crash Testing The New Dainese Enduro Knee Guard - Feb. 18, 2019, 4:43 p.m.

Because I'm sitting at the pediatric dentists' office, I just looked these pads up and dainese has them for 50% off. But after rereading your review, I'll pass.

Rocky Mountain Growler 40 - FIRST IMPRESSIONS - Feb. 15, 2019, 10:42 p.m.

We can get Kinder Eggs. Not as cool as the Canadian ones, the egg is plastic and one side holds the toy and the other side holds a goopy mess you eat with an included spoon. Pretty gross to be honest. One of the prizes was a mountain bike so I forced fed the kids several in a vain attempt to get one. Didn't happen. 

The ten speed XTR shifter is nice. Much prefer it to my 11 speed (which feels lighter and more SRAM like...)

Always enjoy Uncle Dave articles because they're funny, well written and have musical references.

Behind the Brand: Chromag Bikes - Jan. 2, 2019, 7:31 p.m.

On an off day and in search of omiyagi my band of merry Hawaiians and I stopped by (I think we had to take a blown rear shock to Vorsprung). Found the staff to be extremely welcoming and friendly. We bought shirts and stickers and socks an even got to try the pivoting deth machine in the parking lot. Was a highlight of the trip!

Loading Up the Osprey Gearkit 40L Duffel Bag - Dec. 18, 2018, 9:06 a.m.

Thanks for the review. I'd been idly thinking about this bag but I think you've cured me of that.

Riding Imonator in the Wet - Dec. 13, 2018, 11 p.m.

It's watching things like this that make me realize I hate wood. Super well done, made me uncomfortable watching it.
