  • Go Means Go! Review: ABUS Granit X-Plus U 54 Mini | GO MEANS GO
    with the Kryptonite Evolution Mini I had been using for the last five years ABUS Kryptonite Shackle Width 140mm 115mm Body Width 155mm 145mm Overall Length 200mm 185mm Weight 1160 grams 870 grams Besides the obvious greater weight of the ABUS hopefully this translates to a more secure lock the only drawback I found was that it was too wide to fit comfortably in the back pocket of most of my pants I usually carry my lock in the side pocket of my bag which the ABUS fits in fine but every once in a while I do like the convenience and speed of stowing the lock in my back pocket The thing I like the most about the ABUS Granit X Plus U 54 Mini is its ability to easily secure your frame and rear wheel something my Kryptonite Mini could almost never accomplish The photo below shows the lock securing the frame and rear wheel of my Davidson Cross Commuter with 32mm tire and fender The shape of the shackle and slightly increased width and length give the user a much wider range of locking options and result in being able to more securely lock a single bike Locking up two bikes is also a much easier task with the ABUS so next time your buddy forgets his lock he will owe you one Overall I am very pleased with the ABUS Granit X Plus U 54 Mini after my modification to the body of the lock It is a high quality lock that I feel it is more secure and easier to use than my old Kryptonite Evolution Mini I think the slight increase in weight and size is a manageable trade off for the added security I plan on keeping my Kryptonite for a spare and jaunts on the bike where I don t bring a bag but for the day to day the ABUS is here to stay It retails for 109 and can be had at your local bike shop or if you have to you can of course order one online from any number of retailers You can check out the full line of ABUS bike locks here ABUS Bike Security Tall Bryan Bicycle rider mechanic and collector Living and riding in Seattle since 2001 Comments 4 Olle Olofsson August 31 2014 at 1 46 PM Hi I know you posted this a long while ago but i just stumbled over your review searching for a new lock very good informative review by the way I have the big version of the Abus lock and I too removed the plastic cover only to discover that it made the lock rattle and sound really loud bad when having it attached to my frame I was just wondering if the Mini version have this problem as well I am looking for a small and portable lock but if it will be as loud as my old lock i will probably go nuts commuting to work

  • Go Means Go! Ryders Eyewear made a deal with the devil. | GO MEANS GO
    hour because I wouldn t have been able to keep the lenses clear I think I m an extreme case when it comes to sweating so most of y all will be just fine The lenses aren t really dark to start The Thorn has a yellow the Caliber a brown both good for low light conditions They enhance vision in low light and darken enough when the sun is out to help On full sun days a darker lens would be nice but for much of the riding around here especially in and out of the trees and cover I find it better to err on the side of a lighter lens If you ve ever ridden from an open meadow into a brushed in trail it can be difficult for the eyes to adjust I haven t been able to really see a dramatic difference in the hydophopic fronts of the lens In a light mist water will get on the lens and when I run them under the faucet along with a pair of my other glasses I don t see much of a difference Fit The Thorns are a bit snug for my cranium If they were pants for the head the Caliber would be more for the plus sized noggin the Thorn for the hipster dome Head shape will make a difference but the Thorn temples pinch a little bit just above the ear The temples extend higher and beyond the ear a little bit which can contact a ball cap if I m wearing one sometimes dislodging the glasses The Calibers are more comfortable in my opinion the temples sliding comfortably over the ears On the other hand I prefer the nose pads on the Thorn Fashion Here I ll remind you that I wear sweat pants and socks with my flip flops Of the three pairs I prefer the black Thorns with the yellow lenses The style looks like they ve been designed by people that ride mountain bikes They ll go well with a pickup truck and your downhill bike hanging off the tailgate Though the white Thorns feel better in low light maybe something with the orange rim that brightens up the view I feel like they could come with a discount code for a wake board or a dinner date with Guy Fieri The Caliber is semi frameless which I m not a huge fan of but they are comfortable The lack of a lower frame leaves a little more room for air flow which helps fog avoidance To some they won t buy the glasses because it won t match their fixed gear That s fine They can stick to their Oakleys Final Thoughts The price point for the glasses I tested was 140 The question that I ask myself whenever I test a product is Is it worth it My answer Yes As far as any pair of performance eyewear I ve used these Ryders glasses have been

    so it may seem as though I am biased On the contrary I am working with them because I am such a fan A print magazine many of the articles can be read online I enjoy the diversity of articles and the perspective with which it s written Pedal Consumption I don t know how Patrick does it His site is so packed with things that just hit the market or aren t even available yet that I feel like he either knows anyone that does anything in the street fixed gear world or he is really slacking on his day job Either way I am impressed with the layout content and clean feel of Pedal Consumption I met Mr PC when I traveled down to Portland to help in their Rose City Fixed event in 2009 Urban Velo Bicycle Culture on the Skids The good people at Urban Velo have done much to bring fixed gear culture to the level that it is now The folks involved with Urban Velo were involved with Dirt Rag way back the only Mt Bike magazine I have ever subscribed to They have kept it real so to speak and started Urban Velo to build the community that they have found themselves immersed in Polo fixed gear tricks and urban riding with a little rougher edge An interesting section to read is the I love riding in the city which profiles riders around the world Also a print magazine available at your LBS or available for free download online All hail the black market putting the cult back in bicycle culture Stevil Kinevil consistently brings entertaining content to the table on AHTBM With a lengthy history in the bike community Stevil s humor as well as the photos that he finds either on his camera or in some lost and forgotten corner of the internet is fun to read and often informative I have been at the same events as Stevil on multiple occasions but we have yet to meet One of these days it will happen beer will be consumed and a shit show will likely ensue From what I can tell he comes from the darker side of cycling The side that sees cut off Carhartt pants and wool jerseys perfectly acceptable attire for a day spent riding in the mud He doesn t hate fun like some people that consider themselves cyclists and we share the opinion that the occasional drunken nap in a bush only makes you a stronger person If AHTBM were a drink which it should be it would be Thug Passion If you don t know what s in a Thug Passion or the result it brings when consumed then you should listen to more Tupac Eco Velo The efficiency of a bicycle is hard to argue It works well and the design hasn t changed much since the diamond frame was invented way back when The beauty of the bicycle however is subject to interpretation
