Guest Blog: Bamboo Through the Ages

by Drew Haugen

By Reese Ruland (@reeseruland) My childhood home, situated on a large corner lot, had your typical single family four-bedroom, three-bath layout.  And, as is the case with most suburban neighborhoods, there were likely ten or more similar houses scattered throughout the neighborhood.  But ours had one glaring difference from the rest: the yard. Off to the side of the house, … Read More »

The Alubooyah is no less legendary than the plant from which it … Read More »

Braap Nutrition Bars: How Do They Stack Up?

by Douglas Ansel

  It’s hard to forget those times earlier in my cycling career when I would head out the door for a long ride with four sports nutrition bars (no, I won’t name brand names here) in my jersey pockets. The first two, three hours of the ride were great: the sun was out, my legs were good, whatever flavors I … Read More »

Boo – Training Peaks takes on Cincy3

by Douglas Ansel

It was impossible to miss the giant black school bus with gold lettering on the side as I rolled up to the start/finish area to sign in for Friday afternoon’s race at Devou Park. It had a better parking spot than even the Rapha – Focus and Cannondale teams, within sight of the finish line and with a prime view … Read More »

Velo Buyer’s Guide spread on the Boo RS-X Disc!

by Nick Frey

This is huge for little Boo…we gave the editor of Velo, Chris Case, a sick Boo RS-X Disc to train on for a week in Boulder.  No obligations, no strings…just hope that he would dig it. Apparently he did, as did Brad Kaminski.  They shot her in Denver, described her talents, wrote eloquently of her beauty…if she was my girlfriend … Read More »

Pro Bike: Brad Cole’s rigid belt-drive Boo 29er

by Nick Frey

Just racing Burke’s new Crusher in the Tushar takes some serious cajones, or at least a momentary lapse in one’s sanity.   But to race for 80 miles, up over 10,000ft of vert, with just a single gear?  I was getting ready to call up Nurse Ratchet when Brad told me this plan.  Maybe some old-school therapy would help dissuade … Read More »
