Product Review: ABUS Aventor Cycling Helmet

Product Review: ABUS Aventor Cycling Helmet

ABUS Aventor – Where Protection Meets Comfort The ABUS Aventor cycling helmet is light, strong and has an incredible Euro design. When I first started to use the ABUS Aventor helmet as a SoCalCycling.com Team rider, I immediately noticed the comfort on my head without leaving behind the fact that many times you can be racing at high speeds on a Criterium or Road Race and with it comes the danger of crashing and getting a bad head injury. We can […]

FSA Energy Compact Alloy Handlebars

Product Review: FSA Energy Compact Alloy Handlebars

The 2020 FSA Energy Compact Alloy Handlebars maintain the double butted and tapered aluminum alloy construction, the semi-aero ergo flat shape on top and the compact drop from the previous version of the FSA Energy Compact Alloy Handlebar. The weight is slightly less due to less material from the channels for the cables that are routed in the bars while maintaining the strength. With the FSA Energy Compact Alloy Handlebars having short bends on the top of the handlebars it […]

Review: FSA K-Force Compact Carbon Handlebars

Review: FSA K-Force Compact Carbon Handlebars

For most of my years of riding, I’ve always stuck to using alloy bars due to their safety and reliability.

Good road handlebars are like a good seat, they just have to feel comfortable as you’ll be riding and holding on to them in one position or another for the duration of your ride what ever type of ride that might […]

FSA SL-K Road Brakes

Review: FSA SL-K Road Brakes

The FSA SL-K Road Brakes are some of the most powerful road rim brakes I have used to date. The arm’s I-beam structure provided ample stiffness and stopping power and the black and grey color scheme will match any bike they are installed on. The brakes take standard Shimano type cartridge pads so aftermarket pads for carbon rims and the like are easy to find and changing brake pads is simple. Opening the brake for wheel removal is accomplished with […]

Review: FSA Powerbox Alloy Crankset

The FSA Powerbox Alloy Crankset is an outstanding complete setup for anyone racing or training with a coach who doesn’t want to spend the big bucks for a carbon crankset – or just doesn’t care about weight. At only 7 oz or so heavier than the carbon version for half the price, this set is a great deal. On top of that, it’s a very handsome crank that will compliment any bike and groupset. The setup is super easy with […]
