Rob Ware's Bio

An average 30-something who found cycling after his athletic heyday was already long gone. While not producing copy for Competitive, he can be found struggling at the back of a race or chatting at the front of a group ride.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use this as my only shoe cover from October through March. (With toe covers for September and April.) I cam online looking for new winter booties and, as usual, eventually found myself looking at the ones I've owned for years now. Figured that means I should write a review for them.

For temps in the 30s, I just wear thick, warm socks to provide insulation; anything above that, and I wear my summer socks. That versatility keeps the kit drawer from getting overstuffed. I've also learned to value fluo accessories for visibility—not on the road, but while I'm digging through that (admittedly overstuffed) kit drawer early in the morning. Everything's black, and it doesn't help when I'm limited to the light from my phone screen so as not to wake my wife. The fluo stuff stands out. Easier to find amid the sea of black sameness. It's maybe not a big thing, but when you're working up the nerve to get out in 30 degrees on a weekend morning, any minor inconvenience can lead you back to the couch with another cup of coffee.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

"Supple" is thrown around way too much in the industry to describe tires. But it actually applies here. These tires feel like butter on the road—I've never ridden tires that are so—for lack of a better word—delicious. No notes on durability yet as I've only put a few dozen miles on them, but surely they'll wear out faster than 4000s or the like. They're just too damn smooth not to. Still, for racing or pure luxury rides, I can't think of a better clincher.

With Base Bar in hand, rise defiantly against the paternalistic echoes in your head. Cookies CAN be for breakfast. What's more, cookie DOUGH can be for breakfast. Cookie dough IS for breakfast. It is.

These are goddamn delicious. Most protein bars taste like dog food or have enough sugar to put a toddler into a coma but these are the exception. Enjoy your cookie dough.
