Geocaching and Mountain Biking…All Mixed Together!

Posted by RL Policar On February - 2 - 2007ADD COMMENTS

For those of you that aren’t too sure about Geocaching, basically you take your GPS unit and find where someone stashed some treasures.

So what I’m planning on doing is to place samples of Sure2Endure somewhere in the Fullerton Loop in Fullerton, California. By next week I’ll be giving my coordinates on the exact locations of the samples. Here’s the thing, you can’t take them all! Please be honest and take only 1 packet.

In other parts of the trail, I’ll be storing other goodies such as SPD pedals (new), T-shirts (new), Gift Certificates to RPM Cyclery and many more.

So stick around as I announce the info next week.

Ibex B Series Bike…people like to stare…

Posted by RL Policar On February - 2 - 20074 COMMENTS

So last night when we were pulling away from the parking lot after our night ride. I couldn’t help but notice a group of people of about 5-7 riders staring at the Ibex B-Series Bike while it was on my roof rack. Now I know it has a funky top tube and the Sweetskinz tires make it stand out more.

But here’s what I have to say to those guys…”Take a picture while your at it!” Just kidding! I actually like that fact that the Ibex and Sweetskinz causes that kind of reaction. People aren’t too sure what to think.

But to be honest with you, the B-Series has to be one of my favorites in my stable. I started mountain biking with a hard tail and I rode with it for at least a few years. Then of course I got into full suspension bikes and then forgot about the simplicity of hard tail mountain bikes. But now having the Ibex B Series to ride, I’ve rekindled my love for riding hard tails.

Since I finished the build up of the Ibex, I ride that thing on almost all of my night rides. The geometry is very comfortable and the bike is very sturdy. Having placed XTR on the drive train, it makes for a smooth ride.

Night Ridin’

Posted by RL Policar On February - 2 - 20071 COMMENT

Last night Moe, Prscilla and my self hit the trails for a bit of night ridin’.

Since my camera sucks, pictures I took just didn’t do too well at night.

Check out Moe’s Neon lined Camelback.

Here’s Priscilla and I.

As you can tell, I’m using the Ibex B Series Bike with a pair of prototype SweetSkinz tires…check out how they reflect!

Yeah just ignore my gut and pay attention to the bike…

We did about 5 miles. Since this was Priscilla’s first night ride we decided to take it easy. But I think she’s ready for the tougher 12 miler ride…at night! At one point she was leading the ride and it she kept up a good pace. You know it’s tough enough to ride at night, but to ride at an average speed of 18mph on flats is pretty darn good. I just wanted to say, Great Job Priscilla!

A day OUT of the office

Posted by Moe Ramirez On February - 1 - 2007ADD COMMENTS

I took a personal day from work today. I needed to take care of some stuff and I also had time to meet RL for some fun time with the KMX Kart. Is the KMX Kart as fun as it looks??? Hell ya!!! Check out the pics:

Fun with the KMX

Fun with the KMX

It took a little time to get used to, but once I got a little confidence, I was having a lot of fun.
Check out a video of me going down on a sandy trail:

I can’t wait to ride the KMX Kart with knobby tires, I’m pretty sure that they will make a huge difference on the handling of the Kart.

Fun Factor: 10 out of 10

Fezzari Alta Peak: First Impressions

Posted by Jeremy Yang On February - 1 - 2007ADD COMMENTS

I went on a pre-work ride with RL this morning. I was riding my X-Cal 29er until about halfway through when I got the idea to swap with RL to try out the Fezzari Alta Peak.

Just wanted to jot down few first impressions:
- It’s a much beefier bike than my 29er. Not in a bad way and (surprisingly) not in a heavy way. It’s just thicker. Thicker down tube, seat post, seat tube, top tube, everything is thicker. It’s a good look for the full suspension bike.
- The top tube is shorter which put me in a more upright position that I enjoyed.
- The juicy 3′s stop very well.
- The rear suspension felt nice. I liked the lock out feature on the rear. It was easy to find while riding (I didn’t even have to look) and easy to use, just a quick flick with the gloved fingers and it’s done.
- The white finish is gorgeous.

More thoughts on the Alta Peak to come as I get in a longer ride on it. Sorry no pictures, but check out the beauty here: Fezzari Alta Peak

Don’t know what it is but I love white bikes!

This is just crazy!

When Is It Time To Replace Your Helmet?

Posted by RL Policar On February - 1 - 2007ADD COMMENTS

Do you still have an old helmet you’ve been riding with?

Well I just learned from the LBS that I moonlight at, that helmets should be replaced every three years. They said something about the foam integrity goes down over time so the best way to keep your noggin protected is to make sure your helmet is up to date.

Now could this just be a ploy for LBS’s and helmet manufacturers to get people to spend money on helmets? Maybe, but I’m not going to take that chance, I have to protect my money maker.

I am due for a new helmet, so help me pick one out…


and finally…
