tricross elite disc

The 2013 Tricross Elite Disc is a great bike to get you where you need to go. If you need to get to, say, Vancouver, this ride can be equipped with racks and bags and made ready for touring. If you need to get to work, you can put fenders and lights on there and maybe some studded tires for winter commuting. If you need to get to the finish line at a cross race, just strip it down to the essentials and put on some cross tires. All that to say, this is one versatile bike. Reg. $1699, now $1190. 54cm only.

Wahoo Fitness KICKR

October 17, 2014 by Sweet Ride Cycling

Again this year, we will be carrying the Wahoo Fitness Kickr trainer. This is a fantastic fitness tool for any level of cyclist. We have been using one at home for a full year now, and have been super happy with the performance. As difficult as it is to get motivated to ride indoors, this interactive trainer helps keep things interesting. The basic idea is that this is an electronic trainer that is controlled by apps on your device (phone, ipad). It is open source, so there are a variety of ways to interact with the trainer. The apps can control the resistance, so you can recreate your favorite rides on Strava or ride something completely new. For a detailed look, check out the DC Rainmaker  review on the Kickr.

It requires that you pedal (it is a bicycle) but gives you a boost up to 32kph. It feels super smooth in operation and has integrated lighting and an onboard computer. Check it out. It’s you, only faster…
