Mike Newberry's Bio

I'm a transplant from the Sunshine State..been here almost 20 years now. I began riding/racing in the mid-80's and continue my hand at it, racing sporadically, to this day.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I got clued in to Mad Alchemy when I was racing on the road and used their embrocation (warning, the 'medium' is HOT). I have used a lot of different chamois cremes in the past ranging from Assos to A&D ointment and wanted to give this product a try....

Very good texture (and smell), not too greasy which is important because I want it to wash out of my chamois. I'm pretty stoked so far.....

Chamois creme (just like a saddle) is a very personal thing so give this a try at least...you might just like it.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've ridden bikes since '85, my first pair of cycling shorts were wool and had a leather chamois....things have advanced some since then and I've ridden in a lot of the major manufacturers over the years (Assos, Castelli, Garneau, Giordana, Craft) and Giordana has always been my go to kit for riding.

The chamois is perfect and cushions in all the right places. The leg length isn't too long or short (I don't have long femurs so this is important to me). The grippers stay in place and hold leg/knee warmers up just fine. The fit/finish of the bibs work well. The suspenders and back mesh are very comfortable.

I'm not a trade team 'fan-boy', it was the quality of the product coupled with the sale price that drove me to buy these. All in all...you really can't go wrong.

I raced CX on a Ridley for a couple of seasons, ended up selling the bike to a friend. I missed riding the dirt on a CX/Gravel bike so I bit the bullet and bought this one....absolutely love it.

Shimano drivetrain and braking works flawlessly, wheelset is solid (TL setup to come), fit is great. Pay attention to the sizing...Ridley sizing is tricky, but the XS is great. Muted grey color is perfect, not flashy.

I set this up and gave it a spin but haven’t dedicated it full time quite yet as I’m not done with riding outside...but soon. I’ve been a staunch roller guy forever and wanted to give this a try. I like being able to match it up with 3rd party apps. Easy to set up and has a great feel so far.

Vittoria, need I say more?

The AKA has been my go-to since being introduced to the Saguaro...both are great tires for the type of riding I do (mostly XC) and where I do it (Park City/Sun Valey). These tires have great longevity, work well in dry to tacky conditions, and are awesome set up tubeless at around 20-22 psi. The TNT construction is burly enough to ward off sidewall damage but supple enough to aide with grippy traction while cornering...
