Whitey Von by Banjo Brothers

I love the white backpack that Banjo Brothers offers, its called the Whitey Von. It will sure add to visibility when you’re on the road.

Retails $89.00 and if its anything like their traditional backpack, this thing should last you years on out. If backpacks aren’t your thing, check out their panniers. I’ve got one of those too, the Market Pannier to be exact, LOVE IT!

Great use of a toe clip strap

Just today I strained my forearm. I was busy doing bunny hops for a work photo we were taking and I’m assuming that the multiple attempts finally took a toll on my forearm. Then later on in the afternoon, my daughter and I went out for a tandem mountain bike ride, but I noticed that my are was still in pain. So I ended up grabbing a toe clip strap and cinching it onto to the problem area. This little trick actually helped out tremendously with managing the pain.

Win a Walz Cap-BikeCommuters.com Edition Cycling Cap

You can win the LAST BikeCommuters.com Cycling Cap by Walz Cap. The size we’re giving away is a Large/XLarge. So that means don’t ask me if I have a small/medium…this is the last hat…ever! I would like to think that it is some sort of collector’s item, but I doubt it. For now, you can win one, and all you have to do is leave a comment below on what kind of bike(s) you use to commute with and what state you’re in. Simple enough, right?

The only rule I have, no international entries/winners will be accepted. Only lower 48 states can qualify. Sorry Japan, I know we’re huge there, but we just can’t do it.

We will randomly pick a winner based on our mood and how many Machiatos we’ve had that day.

Good luck!

Chrome Kursk Pro SPD Review

I had the opportunity to review the Chrome Kursk Pro SPD Shoes on MtnBikeRiders.com.

From the get go I’ve loved the way they looked. I was excited to try them out because I’ve never been a fan of cycling specific shoes unless they look like skater styled shoes like Vans and even Converse All Star.
