Many of you have probably heard of Yorkshire based company Fat Lad at the Back. First appearing on my radar on Dragons Den and being highly visible at trade shows it's a brand I've been interested in and followed from afar. I was helping out at a sportive last year and a colleague pointed out someone wearing a FLAB kit. Looking around I noticed a lot riders were wearing similar kit and it looked half decent on all shapes and sizes so when I was offered a chance to test a bit of it I was interested in seeing how it suited a skinny guy like me,

Bolle Aeromax: Tested and Reviewed

I've managed to get a few rides in this summer. Unlike a lot of people I actually adore the heat. I think I'm actually part lizard and out on the bike the feeling of the sum on my skin is pretty close to my idea of heaven. Of course with all this sun it's been the perfect chance to test out some sunglasses including the striking Aeromax from French company Bolle.

There's an age old debate amongst road cyclists about sartorial elegance. Should kit match? Obviously one doesn't want to mix up colours and cause a clash thus looking a fool, but should brands be mixed? A lot of cyclists don't believe they should and I've started to come around to the idea especially when the Craft Monument MSR set landed on my doorstep.

Smith Attack Max : Tested and Reviewed

Sunglasses are important. In one of my former incarnations as a wannabe rock singer I put my failure to make the big time down to a lack of decent shades. It had nothing to do with the rise of grunge or a lack of talent but my sunglasses. Amazingly these days as a cyclist I rediscovered the importance of the correct eyewear and not just for looking good but also to protect the eyes. Who knew? Anyway over the years I've been through a few pairs until about 5 years ago whilst flush with the redundancy payout of a different incarnation I purchased a premium pair which were just about perfect I thought so when the Smith Optics Attack Max arrived for test they had a lot to be compared to.
