Final Update High Sierra Tokopah 6.0

high sierra tokopa 6.0 The High Sierra Tokopah has been a faithful companion on all my bike rides save my recumbent which has a seat that wouldn’t allow me to wear the hydration pack.  So, I only rode the recumbent twice all summer. But that’s neither here nor there as far as how the test went.  To read the report including my final thoughts please click here.

Update: Ottolock bike lock

ottolock coy I have not had many opportunities to use the Ottolock, partly due to a busy schedule that has limited my riding opportunities, but also because when I did squeeze in an hour ride here and there I didn’t need to lock my bike.  I did manage to use the lock three times.  You can read my findings here.

CreekKooler

Hey, I don’t see anyone paddling the mini-kayak that’s following you… Oh, now I see the lid on it, so its not actually a kayak, just a place for gear storage?   Ah, so it’s a cooler, how cool is that (pun intended…) But seriously, I’ll be testing the CreekKooler for the next few months.   You can read my initial thought’s here.

Ottolock bike lock

Ottolock bike lock Unfortunately, bike locks are needed in this day and age.  Perhaps they were needed early on in the history of bikes but were not readily available.   The only problem, most bike locks are either heavy and bulky or small but not very effective.  Which is where the Ottolock enters the game.  A lock designed by cyclists who demand a lightweight but effective theft deterrent.  I’ll be testing one for the next few months.  To read my initial thoughts please click here.

Final Update: Coros Linx smart cycling helmet

I was hoping to have a lot more miles under my belt (0r lid) before submitting my final update but alas, I discovered I am a fair weather rider. I did not ride any in December and since then I’ve only managed 6 rides. However, I continue to be impressed with the Coros Linx smart cycling helmet.  To read the rest of my final update please click here.

High Sierra Tokopah 6.0 hydration pack

High Sierra Tokopah 6.0 I will be reviewing the High Sierra Tokopah 6.0 hydrationpack for the next few months.  It features a 2 L reservoir and a handy place to store a helmet.  There is enough room in the pack for a rain jacket and other essential gear I might need on a bike ride or day hike.
