Review – Zeny Bike Mechanic Repair Stand and clones

This review is for the Zeny Bike Mechanic Repair Stand, which is also sold under other brands like LEMY, Sportneer, Yaheetech, Bikehand, etc.  These are all exactly the same bike stand, just with different branding.  There are also a few that have different colored knobs and such, but again –…

This is a review of the Scosche Rhythm Bluetooth Speed/Cadence Sensor but you’ll find some useful info (and mini-review I suppose) on the Wahoo Fitness app here too. After I decided to get myself a bike trainer (see my review of the Magnet Steel bike trainer here) I found that the biggest…

Review – Brooks PureConnect 2 Lightweight Running Shoes

I don’t run very often.  Once or twice a week is it.  I don’t like it that well and I find it somewhat boring, but it’s great exercise (though high impact).  And I regularly get the itch to run if it’s been awhile.  Don’t get me wrong, sometimes I do…
