Why big, tall, chubby, fluffy, heavyset, and fat athletes should wear cycling bib shorts during their spin workouts
February 26, 2019
Don’t be afraid of the very pervy-looking cycling bib. While it looks a lot like fetishwear, cycling bib shorts make these spin class godsends in 2XL. Personally, I did a lot of research and chose to order three pair of Pearl iZUMi Men’s Escape Quest Cycling Bib Shorts from Amazon; however, American-made Aero Tech Designs Big Men’s Top Shelf Padded Cycling Bib Shorts go up to 5XL.While they look bizarre, embarrassing, and grotesque on their own if you’re not a lithe cyclist, the built-in shoulder straps keep the bike shorts up no matter what. No plumber’s crack. No mid-ride or mid-spin class wardrobe malfunction.

Day One of Becoming a Spin Goddess at CycleBar
January 9, 2019
t was really good but I really chilled and didn’t do any of the upper-body workout stuff or any of the push-ups or the fore-aft, back-forth stuff. And I didn’t always get out of the seat when I was asked or sit down, either. But, I had fun and Natalie was cool with it and so was Marina, the studio owner.
My 7-year love affair with a Surly Steamroller
September 2, 2017
I have been riding fixies and single-speed bikes since before some baby hipsters were born. Single speed bikes used as city bikes isn’t a new idea. I have been living with my trusty Surly Steamroller since 2010. Now, she’s a three-speed. My Single Speeds: The Early Years My first single-speed bike was a 2000 Bianchi […]
