0 DriRider Scrambler Jacket

More and more, do I find myself attracted to plainer bike gear. In fact, I’ve been known to spray paint my favourite lids flat black to hide the busy graphics. I don’t want flames drawn on my lid, nor do I want aggressive lettering thrown across my jersey. I’m not…

0 Saint Unbreakable 6 Jean review

I remember when I bought my first pair of Kevlar riding jeans. They were the new Big Thing. “Casual-looking pants with a special lining to protect you in an accident”. Okay, the latter was true, but they were like wearing a set of dacks your 100 stone uncle handed down…

0 Rampless Trailer: the easiest way to move bikes

Motorcycle trailers don’t come any better than the Rampless Trailer, an Australian design that lets you load a bike at ground level, all on your own. There are no ramps because you don’t need them. It’s not unique, but it’s very clever. The concept is simple. The platform pivots from…
