Review: Shimano PD-T400 Click'r Pedal
Ever since I got Bowen his SPD shoes and mounted cleats on it, we've been riding with him fully cleated. He loves it because his feet never come off the pedals, which is a hazard on the tandem because the pedals won't stop spinning just because your feet ca...

Review: Spigen Rugged Armor Moto G5 Plus Case
The Moto G5 Plus proved to be too slippery for me. Furthermore, the rear camera protrudes from the bottom, and sooner or later I'm going to leave the phone on the ground somewhere and end up scratching the lens, so I decided to buy a rubber case for it. The...

Independent Cycle Touring now available as a Kindle eBook
I tried several times over the years to put Independent Cycle Touring into the Kindle .mobi format, but it's always been an abysmal failure. Finally, Amazon finally released a tool that would preserve the formatting from the print book into the Kindle editi...

First Impressions: Samsung Galaxy S7
Much as I like my 2015 Moto G for it's price, features (especially waterproofing), and performance, on recent trips I've been forced to face its limitations. In particular, it was missing several bands, which made it less than useful in Japan , the BVI and ...

Review: CamelBak Kid's 2016 Mini MULE Hydration Pack
I visited REI with the intention of buying Bowen arm and leg warmers, and it turned out they didn't have any. So I ended up looking at hydration packs (he can't quite reach the water bottle cages while riding, and it's a chore to stop and unclip him so he c...
