New wallets on there way. 

Monument wallets have been known for their sleek design and comfort. As a cyclist you never realize how bulky your wallet is until you stuff it in your jersey pocket. This wallet is designed to only carry what your really need, and leave out any unwanted cards, recipes and random papers out of your wallet.


Review: Empire Giro ACC

The “Not So Pro” review of:

The Giro Empire ACC, for the cyclist looking to upgrade yet another, and very vital, point of contact. Expect ZERO hotspots, ultimate shock absorption from the Easton® EC90™ ACC full carbon sole, as well as maximum stability felt both in pushing and in pulling on your pedals.

Out on my first ride and the shoe felt incredibly stiff. I was amazed by the power transfer I felt and didn’t mind the slight cramped toes as I was expecting the shoe to give and stretch a bit as it broke in. After my second ride in the Empires I felt the shoe conform to my feet better while not sacrificing security and stiffness in my pedal strokes whether, climbing, cruising, or powering through a sprint.

Price Point:
Retailing at $275 plus tax and shipping, this shoe is not for the novice rider. Unless you’re a loaded novice well then help yourself!

Pluses – Maximum Support, Reliability and Performance, Comfort, and Styling to make Non – Podium Placers (Me!) look pro!
Minuses – Now I am broke…
