There’s a massive sales on smart cycling trainers right now, plus plenty other sports tech. There’s 20% off the Wahoo KICKR, KICKR CORE, CLIMB, Headwind, 20% off the Tacx NEO 2T, Flux 2, and Flux S, 20% off Saris Hammer 3 trainer and Saris MP1 Motion Platform. Plus also 20% off the Elite Direto X and Suito too, even the new Sterzo. Plus even steeper deals including with the Kinetic trainers at 30% off.
For Tuesday I’m going to go with something a little bit different than a normal post. Last week The Girl and I participated in a bit of an experiment…with our bikes. This experiment took quite a bit of time actually to carry out, but it helps pave the way for future activities as a result. It involved some dismantling, re-mantling, some twisting, some looking at it funny to see if we got it right, and then a bit more modification of the situation. Thankfully, no animals were harmed in the experiment.
But I’m going to cut to the chase, in what will probably be my shortest post evah! (You can stop celebrating now…no really…now is good).
So here’s the deal – identify details in/about this picture and you as a result win…well…nothing. Yes, I know – some folks have fancy contests with all sorts of great prizes. At the moment, I lack such features. Maybe in the future I’ll be able to up the prize ante to something like semi-stale gel packets.
As for your quest, again, it’s simple – identify as much as possible about this picture outside of the bikes themselves (meaning, listing the tire name or bike brand doesn’t count):
Ye with the most correct details about what these bikes are doing wins the bragging rights. As a side note, I’m also not above people telling me how awesome I am (or The Girl is), counting as a “correct detail”. Nor am I against cookies and other baked goods being sent to count as correct details.
However, for those peeps ‘in the know’ (you know who you are), you don’t count. But you usually get things like cupcakes anyway.
The only hint I’ll give you is if you do enough reading in my post archives for the year 2008, you might just find the answer. But after I clicked on that link I realized it’s kinda addicting to read the posts backwards starting from December 31st…and soon I was fully distracted. You might get that way too.
Tomorrow (Wednesday) at roughly this time, I’ll post the full back story. In the meantime, post your best guess! Good luck!
I swim, bike and run. Then, I come here and write about my adventures. It’s as simple as that. Most of the time. If you’re new around these parts, here’s the long version of my story.

You probably stumbled upon here looking for a review of a sports gadget. If you’re trying to decide which unit to buy – check out my in-depth reviews section. Some reviews are over 60 pages long when printed out, with hundreds of photos! I aim to leave no stone unturned.
I travel a fair bit, both for work and for fun. Here’s a bunch of random trip reports and daily trip-logs that I’ve put together and posted. I’ve sorted it all by world geography, in an attempt to make it easy to figure out where I’ve been.
The most common question I receive outside of the “what’s the best GPS watch for me” variant, are photography-esq based. So in efforts to combat the amount of emails I need to sort through on a daily basis, I’ve complied this “My Photography Gear” post for your curious minds! It’s a nice break from the day to day sports-tech talk, and I hope you get something out of it!
Many readers stumble into my website in search of information on the latest and greatest sports tech products. But at the end of the day, you might just be wondering “What does Ray use when not testing new products?”. So here is the most up to date list of products I like and fit the bill for me and my training needs best! DC Rainmaker 2019 swim, bike, run, and general gear list. But wait, are you a female and feel like these things might not apply to you? If that’s the case (but certainly not saying my choices aren’t good for women), and you just want to see a different gear junkies “picks”, check out The Girl’s 2018 Gear Guide too.
