Elite Workstand Team review

Elite Workstand Team review

There are some tools that should never be missing in a cyclist’s house: one of them is a good work stand. It is not necessary to be a fanatic of mechanics or one of those who, on the evening before each riding, dismount and reassemble the bike. Because the bicycle is, after all, a simple object and, with little periodic care, it will be able to keep us company for many years. Being able “to…

MET Helmets Corso and Grancorso review

MET Helmets Corso and Grancorso review

And now, let’s talk about helmets; in the plural, because we will test a couple of them, both proposed by Met Helmets in the urban range: the Corso and the Grancorso. Similar and different at the same time, the family air in common and some details, but nothing more. One of them, the Corso (the white one in the picture) is a typical urban helmet both for its shape and its technical solutions; the other…

Chrome Industries Truk Pro Bike Shoe review

Chrome Industries Truk Pro Bike Shoe review

Second test dedicated to urban cycling; after the Rose Pro Duo Plus pedals, it is the turn of a pair of shoes, with a dual function too: the Truk Pro Bike Shoe, proposed by the American Chrome Industries. Dual function because the appearance is that of a normal pair of walking shoes, but the sole has a removable flap that conceals the seat for Spd cleats. So they can used to stroll around on foot…

Met Helmet Trenta 3K Carbon review

Met Helmet Trenta 3K Carbon review

Met Helmet decided to celebrate its thirty years with a top helmet; for the materials, the constructive choices, the performance, the comfort: the Trenta 3K Carbon. And me, who courted the company since the news launching, I could get my hands on it, or rather put it on my head, as soon as the specimen reserved for the press arrived. I have this helmet since January and we are in late April. Usually I do…

Met Manta helmet review

Met Manta helmet review

There are still people who think that the bike helmet is an unnecessary nuisance; its use relegated to the most sporting fanatics. I, on the opposite, firmly believe that the helmet is necessary, as any other safety protection, and that’s why I am proposing the test of another helmet: the Met Manta. A top one of the sport range, often used by racing professionals and characterized by the absence of the big front air intake…

Shoes BRN Cross review

Shoes BRN Cross review

There is no Mtb world in this blog; it’s my choice, it’s not a kind of bike that fascinates me. I enjoy off-road riding, let’s be clear, but I must take a racing turn to be happy on the saddle. That’s why I decided to offer you an off-road shoes test: the BRN Cross. Are you understanding nothing, eh? Yes, I know, I do it on purpose… 😀 Seriously, you know that I often use…

Ergotec: suspension seatpost SP 05 and saddle Relax review

Ergotec: suspension seatpost SP 05 and saddle Relax review

I tested two components devoted to comfort: a damped seatpost and a saddle with a gel padding. Both proposed by the German company Ergotec, a company that devoted to research of various solutions to make the cyclists comfortable. It has a large catalog with very peculiar products, such as several handlebars adjustable in amplitude and then in angling. But also stems and seatposts with different adjustment options, always in search of the best pedaling position….

MKS pedals with EZY and EZY-S review

MKS pedals with EZY and EZY-S review

Quick release pedals are not new to the market, but it’s worth talking about them because they represent a more practical solution than it may seem. Having to decide which model to use, I chose to turn to a top company, which already for several years has made this technical solution available to us cyclists. The choice therefore went to two models in the catalog of Mikashima Industrial Co., better known as MKS; one for…

Velogical Dynamo review

Velogical Dynamo review

Another unusual component for this blog: a rim dynamo. Unusual, because as you know, I am not a big user of energy producer components, as for my needs I use just a couple of battery lights and it’s better they are very small. I need a lighting system only to be visible and not to see the road, and between the two there is a big difference. But because a component does not fit into…

Helmet MET Strale review

Helmet MET Strale review

I like to alternate my tests of accessories or typically urban and tourist components with others more sporty. Because it’s my way of interpreting the bike; it’s my “life on pedals”, made out of sport or vagabond going out, of stints to the utmost or of slow city transfers. That is why we will see a sport helmet: the Met Strale; even if I can anticipate that, after having used it for several weeks and…
