SCOTT Scale 940

Stella purchased her new Trek Dual Sport 3 Women's bike last October. After owning my Trek 6500 for 22 years, I figured it was time to upgrade my bike as well.

Look Trail Grip Platform Pedals

Bike pedals are all the same, right? No. What's so great about the Look Trail Grip Platform Pedals? When I purchased my new Trek Dual Sport 3 Women's bike, I immediately noticed that the pedals were smaller than those on my previous bike. The first few times I rode it, my feet kept slipping off … Continue reading Look Trail Grip Platform Pedals

RockyMounts BackStage Hitch Rack

Giant Sedona DX W (Women’s Bike)

  So, biking and I (Stella) have a complicated relationship. Like every other kid in the USA, I rode a bike when I was child; I had the nostalgic "banana seat" bike. And I can say, with certainty, that I never rode a bike again after the age of seven or eight. For some reason, … Continue reading Giant Sedona DX W (Women’s Bike)
