  • Go Means Go! Review: PDW Full Metal Fenders. | GO MEANS GO
    I feel is the best looking option for folks that would like to ride their performance road bike in the rain Enter the Dragon PDW Full Metal Fenders At 120 they may well cost more than other fender options But I think this is one example of getting what you pay for Read on I ll admit I was nervous about how the install was going to go I enlisted the help of Bryan Clark GMG contributor owner founder of Emerald City Bicycles and possessor of soft silky luxurious red hair He was interested in the fenders from a technical installation standpoint so as the rain fell outside he broke into the project and I took some photos and drank his beer PDW is about design I mean you can t have Portland Design Works without design right From the product itself to the packaging the Full Metal Fenders are impressive The instruction book is informative and gives you some nice blank pages to take notes or draw dirty pictures in the back of it I chose the latter Made of anodized aluminum they are a sort of a gunmetal grey real classy and they look amazing on the Record Ace They are stiff structurally sound which in comparison to some of the competitors is a good thing Many of the plastic fenders are floppy and seem like they would rub or hit the tire when going over bumps Bryan made short work of the installation he got it done in 2 5 beers time The only customization he had to do was bend the figure eight washers around the coping on the rear dropouts Being stainless steel they were pliable and formed around well I haven t had a flat in the near 200 miles I m approaching with the fenders installed That s a good thing because the only seemingly unavoidable drawback if you can even call it that is that when you remove the wheel you must remove your skewer as the other part of the washer is attached to the fender struts Definitely not the end of the world and it does keep everything tight when your wheel is in place it s just a trade off that you make if you want fenders on your road bike It is a fair trade when the alternative is P clamps or some weaker fastening method Verdict If you want stout fenders that look good work well and you are prepared to pay a little bit for them the Full Metal Fenders by Portland Design Works are your ticket to ride Are they worth 120 With close to 200 miles mine I m going with a firm Yer darn tootin I ve heard that they ve been running low on supply so get them while you can We are just pulling into winter here in the Northwest and yes your bike DOES work in the rain Thanks to Bryan and Emerald City Bicycles for the installation and beers

  • Go Means Go! Review: The Abus U-Mini 40 U-Lock by Comparison | GO MEANS GO
    A 4 3 8 4 3 4 4 1 2 Weight 2 lb 4 3 oz 1 lb 12 4 oz 1 lb 14 9 oz Shackle B 13 9 mm 12 8 mm 12 7 mm Inside Length C 5 1 2 6 1 8 5 3 8 Indside Width D 3 1 8 3 9 16 3 5 16 The lock mechanism itself is smooth After a week or so of riding with it I realized the only time I was doing the key jiggle I was so used to with my other locks was when I inadvertently used the wrong key With the right key in hand using the lock feels like a step up from the others The barrel locks to both posts of the shackle which means it does not employ the hook end on on side like the Kyrptonite does I m okay with this The hook end can give you leverage in a tight spot but also forces you to put the barrel in one direction which can be a pain when the keyhole is off center like it is on the Kryptonite Overall the Abus seems to fill a niche between these u locks and the beefier Pitbull OnGuard and New York Kryptonite series locks and the price reflects that at 60 If you re looking for a little extra peace of mind or just a more premium feeling lock this could be the place to find it greghxc Urban cyclist bicycle events planner and consumer of fine beers and vegan food Leave a comment Our Sponsors Find Us On Facebook GoMeansGo on Twitter Tall Bryan on Instagram Ryan on Instagram Flickr Group Recent Comments Example 1 The Humpday Hustler Benny Blanco June 18 2015 Hi Bryan appreciate the review I m

  • 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! Review: Mio Alpha heart rate monitor | GO MEANS GO
    much faster The wrist band is wide and it s not a small watch but it s not as long as would be comfortable for my wrist I was using the last hole on the band to keep it attached The Mio Alpha has features that are great for training helping keep you within your target heart rate keeping an elapsed time showing your max and min heart rate for your workout Another cool feature is that the Mio Alpha will sync with your bluetooth compatible phone I used it with the Map My Ride app on my iPhone 5s and it worked well The Mio Alpha seems like a great tool to bring your training up to the next level If you don t like the idea of a chest strap heart rate monitor the Mio Alpha is a good option The Mio Alpha retails for 199 and is available through them directly or through a number of other retailers Tags heart rate monitor mio alpha Ryan Living in and loving Alaska A passion for human powered transportation Beer drinker Hell raiser Two wheels one love Comments 1 Robbie December 30 2013 at 2 46 PM Couldn t agree more on the importance of heart rate monitors for serious endurance athletes or anyone looking to shave some time of their PRs I invested in a Mio from Road Runner Sports a few months back and it has changed the way I ve trained 100 great price on mine here too http www roadrunnersports com rrs products MIO113 mio alpha Reply Leave a comment Our Sponsors Find Us On Facebook GoMeansGo on Twitter Tall Bryan on Instagram Ryan on Instagram Flickr Group Recent Comments Example 1 The Humpday Hustler Benny Blanco June 18 2015 Hi Bryan appreciate the review I
