Sarah Edwards's Bio

Growing up in outdoor heaven aka Bend, OR, I was thrown into the world of playing outside at a very young age. I have a big passion for everything from pedaling fast down hills to hiking to mountain tops. You can probably find me at the nearest coffee shop pounding cold brew before heading out to the next adventure!

Wore these tights for the first time yesterday in 38* temps and they were super toasty warm! The inner lining is a nice red fleece that *kind of* shows through while pedaling? It just stretches the fabric a little and then appears to be more red on your legs. Nothing crazy just worth noting. Chamois and comfort are excellent!!!! This chamois is among the most comfortable I have worn. Held up to a 3 hour ride in temps under 40* and was quite warm at the end.

I wear a size medium in these bibs.
I have a 27 in waist, 35 chest, 33.5in inseam. Fit is great! I wear medium in giordana, assos and castelli and a small in pearl izumi, louis garneau and santini.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Wore these bad boys for the first time yesterday riding in 38* dry temps. I have perpetually cold feet and this was the first time I have done a whole three hour ride and felt no chill on my toes! Seriously rad shoe covers. Fleece lining aids to nice extra warmth and the DWR coating will be great to try out in rain/ snow. Only qualm about these shoe covers is that I wish I got a size smaller. I wear a size 42 so based on the size chart, ordered a size large. They are slightly baggy around my foot, nothing to big that I need to return them, but should I buy again, I would get a medium for a more tight, streamlined fit.

Overall seriously love these and looking forward to many winter rides with them.

I haven't owned many trainers or ever preferred to workout indoords but this trainer certainly makes indoor miles a lot more desirable. If you plan to train indoors through the winter or just want a controlled workout, I would suggest nothing less than the kickr.

Pros:
-Very quite until about 115 RM then it starts buzzing/vibrating fairly loud.
-Very smooth ride compared to wheel mount trainers
-Easy set-up / connectivity
-custom workouts when paired with Zwift or with Wahoo trainer app
-Direct drive is awesome and minimal wear and tear on your bike
-trainer comes with an 11-26 cassette
-When paired with zwift, trainer road or third party apps the workout possibilities are endless and riding inside becomes, dare I say it, fun!
-Resistance adjustments and real time power, speed, cadence, distance, RPM and more can be easily viewed and controlled via the Wahoo Trainer app.

Cons:
-Will need an ANT + adapter to connect your HR to app or computer
-Trainer needs to be plugged into electrical outlet to run
-Super heavy but also very stable (this is kind of a pro and a con)
-Power meter on trainer and Stages power meter on bike sometimes give me different readings.

Overall:
Expensive trainer but a great investment if you are looking to be serious about training through the winter. Easy set up and fun to ride. I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

For a tire this heavy and low TPI, I was expecting to get a lot of life out of these guys. This was not the case. They are completely worn and falling apart after just a couple months of riding (about 1200 miles). They were pretty solid tires while they lived but I was not super impressed with neither the rolling resistance nor the longevity of these tires.

I've used this vest for years in light drizzle and slightly chilly temps. Some features I like is that the vest has one big rear pocket, which most vest do not. I also like the high neck line which keeps you protected from having wind shoot down your chest while riding.

Not a huge fan of the cut, it flaps a lot in the wind on my shoulders but is tight across my chest. This jacket is also not super packable. It doesn't stuff into a jersey pocket super well (although I've done it). I wish it packed down a little smaller.

Other than that, pretty solid vest for a descent price.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

My measurements pretty much line up with the "medium" on the size chart directly (honestly the medium, based on the size chart, should be a little big). But all said and done, this shirt is seemingly sized for an infant child. INCREDIBLY small. Like woah I would barely fit my head in the head hole. I consistently wear a medium in all other shirts and a small or medium castelli jersey depending on the cut, and this shirt was just way too small. Size up, size up, size up!

Tried to put this rack on my dads car which has older Yakima rounds bars and while thule claims that this rack will work with round bars, it does not! The clamp is not big enough to fit all the way around the round bars. You have been warned! If you are looking for a rack that works great on round bars, check this one out:

I have cliff bars stored in every backpack, purse, car and drawer in my life. Never know when you are gonna need a little refuel! Best on long rides or a quick snack before an after work shred sesh. Easy on the belly and organic ingredients makes them even better. Definitely a must have. New peanut butter, banana, dark chocolate flavor is to die for, try it!

I normally wear a medium across the board in Castelli product because it runs notoriously small. This jersey does not fall under the same smallness. It for sure runs larger than any castelli product I've worn so I sized down to a small. That all being said, I really dig this jersey and its lightweight, stretchy and breathable fabric. Sleeves are longer than most other jerseys I have (which i love!!) and it has nice grippers on the back of the jersey and arms to keep everything in place while riding. Great jersey for the price but for sure wear your normal size instead of sizing up for this Castelli item!
