Specialized Clutch SX Tires - Review Specialized Clutch SX Tires - Review
A while ago a friend of mine bought a wheelset on ebay that came with some Specialized Clutch SX tires already installed. He didn't think much about them, figuring they were OEM throwaways, but out of curiosity he left them on for a ride and was pleasantly surprised. A few more rides and he was even more impressed. After his glowing recommendation I decided to try a pair of these tires for myself, inside you can read about my impressions.

Drift X170 - Helmet and Bike Camera - Review Drift X170 - Helmet and Bike Camera - Review
The Drift X170 is an interesting package with some features that make it stand out from other cameras. For example, packing a 170 degree wide angle lens that has 360 degree rotation. This allows you to always have the image the right way up when filming which is important with the camera's 16:9 wide screen filming mode. Two video file types are supported, MP4 or MJEG AVI at 30 FPS. The body is wrapped in protective rubber outer making it waterproof to 0.5 meters.

Let's see how it worked out inside,

Rocky Mountain Altitude 70RSL Carbon - Review Rocky Mountain Altitude 70RSL Carbon - Review
When asked to write a review on the Rocky Mountain Altitude, I thought it would be a sloppy wet mess of a trail day here in Edmonton as the trails still had some ice and lots of mud everywhere. Conditions like this can be a good thing for a review, but is can limit how hard you push a bike on climbs and descents which prevents one from seeing the true potential of a bike design. As everything came together for the test date, I was presented with an opportunity for my wife and I, along with a good riding buddy from Edmonton to meet friends from Switzerland in Moab, Utah for a week of riding. I quickly set up the bike for my weight and riding style, packed our gear and bikes into the Honda Element for the long drive to Moab.

Review Inside.

howies® Alder shorts: Review howies® Alder shorts: Review
UK company howies® (never spelt with a capital) has a complete lineup of technical and casual clothing that transcends the usual mountain bike fashion barrier. Riding apparel that can double as causal wear and casual wear that can be worn on the bike, howies® blends the two with a subdued appearance that you'll want to wear long after the mountain bike culture has moved onto its next neon infused fashion wave. Inside we review the bike specific Alder shorts, as well as take a look at their Madryn jeans and high end Towpath trousers.
