Hey Lance, I hear you! I just didn’t want to say anything, or insult you, about changing your design for my ideal EDC.
I know man, I was just trying to be a funny guy. :rolleyes: :p

Re: Endurance training, hydration and nutrition.

From what I have heard and experienced, you cant get behind the ball on hydration. You need to be hydrated days before excess activity, and then stay hydrated leading up to and during. Training for a triathlon. How is your swimming? What I mean is, have you ever actually done or trained for distanc...

Endurance training, hydration and nutrition.

I wanted to see how some of you guys handled these issues. I think I am fairly active for a 50 year old, mainly because of the amount of time I spend kayak fishing, but I don’t think I’m being very smart about hydration and I think it is negatively affecting my performance. I recently checked out Vi...

Maybe some time after COVID19 I can fly down there and do a bike tour. We can hit up some local trails. Have fun on the new ride and make sure to post some pictures!
Give me a few months to get trained up and I’ll do some of the tour with you.

Re: Any cyclists? Vivi? Looking to get a nice bicycle for road training

Just pulled the trigger. Tough finding bikes in stock right now but I located a 2021 Specialized Diverge. Aluminum frame with their “future shock 1.5” system and Shimano 1x drivetrain. I was looking at straight road bikes but after a lot of thought and some of the advice and warnings here I decided ...

Re: Spyderco Face Mask

Personally, I wouldn't buy one. This face mask thing won't last forever and I for one will be glad when it's over. I’m with you on this one. It seems like the face mask is quickly becoming a controversial and divisive symbol. Plenty of companies are going to make some $$ selling them but if my comp...

Re: Vacation Knives

Nice choices ATV. The Siren was designed to be a “do everything” knife that could handle whatever you might encounter in a harsh outdoor environment. One of the ideas I had when designing both the Siren and the Waterway was a knife that I could stick in my waistband and take off down the coast campi...

Re: Siren

I want to leave some feedback here after using my Siren everyday for months. I have noticed that one thing that has been a bit polarizing about the design is the heavier g10 texture. Some folks love it and others are scared it will be a “pocket shredder”. The texture was indeed chosen to provide bet...

Re: Siren

Hey Vivi, you have large hands if I’m not mistaken? Your full four fingers will probably not completely fit writhin the red marks but I think the handle will still be comfortable for you. I made prototypes in many different sizes and that handle shape is still quite comfortable even when the pinkie ...

Re: Any cyclists? Vivi? Looking to get a nice bicycle for road training

The Lightspeed T5 looks interesting. I wish you nothing but the best! Don't loose sight of the LIGHTS, front and rear, for safety, and a good helmet. I don't want to be a downer but when I trained with the Western Wheelman out of Glen Ellyn, Illinois, one of the guys was hit while crossing an inter...

Re: Any cyclists? Vivi? Looking to get a nice bicycle for road training

So I got on the phone with Litespeed today. They were very nice and helpful. I’m considering a T5 or a Cherohala. There’s about a $1000 price difference between the two though...yikes! The main differences I see between the two are disk brakes and tire clearance. I’m having a hard look at the T5. Is...

And yes, Vivi, I have been looking at the whole “Bike-packing” thing and that look pretty awesome. As it is though, I’m just starting to get into “Kay-packing” haha. We are actually going to be doing a big multi-day trip this summer and I’ll try to make a nice video. Point is, I like the bike packin...

Re: Any cyclists? Vivi? Looking to get a nice bicycle for road training

Regarding buying locally, that’s probably the best way to get the right bike but everything is imported here so prices are higher. I probably need to just suck it up and pay the premium though for the ability to go into the shop and make sure I’m comfortable with what I’m getting. Unfortunately, I’m...

Hey all, I’ve been on the hunt for awhile now looking at bicycles. I have some beautiful spots to ride in my area and I am always looking for healthy activities. I currently ride a bike everyday as a short distance commuter/“go to the store” ride but I’m thinking to get into some more serious cyclin...
