As the weather shifts, the wind chills, and the leaves fall, we enter into the worst day of the year for some, as others excitedly scramble trying to remember where they…. or someone else put their light charger. In the mean time, we had everything from awesome to odd this week. Bike locks are simply not what they used to be and TiGr, Abus and Hiplock brought us their own take. Sufferfest and BKool create new ways to make emerging from the depths of your pain-cave harder than ever, and a new dropper….. err, stem from 3SFtech.
So sneak a handful of your kid’s trick-or-treat candy, (but don’t be these parents), and look to see what you missed this week….
All links open in a new tab or window so you can easily comeback here to go down the list. Enjoy!
