Hartford Riverfront Cyclocross / Skatepark Riding

I'd best describe the Hartford Riverfront Cyclocross race as 'unique'. Even in the midst of grass crit season the course was surprisingly non-technical and a huge contrast from the "Wood Shed" at Silk City CX the day prior.

Team Health Warrior Review: Garneau's Course Superleggera Jersey

For the past few weeks here in NYC it's been Jakarta hot out. We've found ourselves breaking into a sweat like Mel Gibson in "The Year of Living Dangerously" just thinking about riding our bikes. In such conditions, we put a premium on any piece of kit that is super light and super breathable. Fortunately, this year we expanded our kit order to include LG’s Course Supperleggera (Italian for “super light”) jersey. Being put into such heavy rotation recently by many of the guys on the team recently, the timing is right to share our impressions.

ACME Bicycle Co Wednesday Coffee Rides

Earlier this year we interviewed Jonathan and Colin from ACME Bicycle Co on the art and science of fitting. Now with summer weather (finally) approaching ACME is kicking off weekly coffee rides. Every Wednesday meet at 8:30AM at Grand Army Plaza for a chill, no-drop pace for 1 hour. Then head back to the shop at 9:30 for bagels and coffee. All are welcome!

The Interview: ACME Bicycle Co

During the latter stretch of the 2015 racing season a number of Team Health Warrior racers dropped by ACME Bicycle Co for fits and experienced first hand the dramatic improvement in performance and comfort derived from the ACME fit. This positive feedback blossomed into a formal partnership for the 2016 season season as ACME Bicycle Co became THW's official fit partner. More recently we had the opportunity for a bit of Q&A with ACME founder Jonathan Blyer and his partner, THW racer Colin Tanner to touch on the technology and philosophy behind bicycle fits and what makes ACME different from their peers.
