If you want to ride a bike any distance at all, you need to take care of your bottom. Chamois Butt'r every day keeps the saddle sores away.
Most energy drinks are bunk. They're full of sugar and they make your stomach hurt. Not Skratch. I fill a bottle with water and a bottle with Skratch on rides over an hour.
The Schwalbe G-One Allround is my all-time favorite tire for gravel riding. The little knobs make it grippy enough for dirt roads but still smooth enough to roll on pavement. Great for commuting, too.
Sometimes you need a lock that's more of a deterrent than a failsafe lock, like when your bike is on a car rack, or when you ride a clunker to the bar. HipLok is perfect for these times.
There are no rules for which socks you wear while cycling or running. Whatever color and length you like is cool with me. But make sure they're as comfortable as DeFeet Wooleators.
Maybe you haven't worn glasses since second grade. But if you've run, biked, skied, or swam in humid conditions and had lenses fog, you needed Cat Crap.
Orange seal is the easiest to inject, most reliable tubeless tire sealant I've tried, period. I rode the last 80 miles of the 2017 Dirty Kanza on a punctured tire with no worries.
A lot of teams in pro cycling that are sponsored by other clothing companies covertly wear the Castelli Gabba 2 long-sleeve on cool days. It's that good.
Presta valve cores can be a pain to get out when you need to add sealant to your tires. Make them less painful with the Park Tool Valve Core Remover.
