The Cascades...PNW baby!

Nicholas Barile's Bio

I am driven by harmony in life. An acute balance between business and pleasure. Anytime I can combine the two I will definitely take advantage. My friends and family are all on the same page. I thrive on being creative and well reviewed, when at the same time I need to be distracted. Above all, I just want the most out of life! Oh yes, and my wife Camille is amazing...

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use these bad boys for road and mountain cycling in the spring.summer/fall. They are the perfect height cuff for me...not tool tall, but taller than your standard, old school cycling sock. I go black, it lasts longer because you don't see dirt stains for mud spray or dust and grime when you are getting rad. At this point they are the only socks I'll buy to ride in, barring winter needs.

Long days in the saddle call for an hydration supplement that be consumed for hours without giving you gut rot. This is the only one that works for me. I like all the flavors, but Pineapple is my favorite. Use Skratch Labs Hydration Mix for exercise only...not like a juice or soda...too sweet.

I run XT pedals on my mountain bikes, and my cross bike. I use the same shoe while riding all 3 bikes. The SH56 SPD cleats hold up to all the abuse I put them through on all 3 bikes. They have a good solid interface with the pedal for the long life of the cleat...Others don't, in my experience. The float and release angles are just right, and I have not stripped or seized a bolt yet.

Yes, a spring glove, but pretty darn warm if it stays dry. Race glove?...not too sure... To me a race glove should offer mare tactile handlebar feel and be a little less bulky and loose feeling. Great for training on the bike or XC skiing though. or casual wear if you are into that...Does the job it was intended to do well though.

The Mavic Cyclone Jacket has many great features. I love the off-set zipper, the zip close storage pockets, and the super soft and ergonomic sleeve cuffs. The fit is a little large throughout the shoulders and arms, but it makes for great movement and comfort on the bike. The jacket blocks the wind to keep you warm, yet it breaths well to keep you dry. Looks nice when forced to wear bib tights. I dig it.

Running the Easton EA70 Flat/Wide bars on my single-speed 29er. I dig them. They are wide, but not too wide which is nice. Didn't have to cut them down to fit my needs as a 5'9ish dude. They are a little stiff for my rigid setup but if you are running a suspension fork up front you have no reason to go avoid this bar. They look great with the stealthy grey graphics and match the EA70 stem perfectly. They are light, and a great vale as well. It will probably last forever...literally.
