Topeak Morph Pump

This morning I got a flat tire on the way in to work. Luckily it was a gorgeous morning, birds chirping, and I was in a nicer section of my commute. Having my Topeak Mini-Morph pump definitely makes a huge difference. Mine is now probably five or six years old, but still working well. It is a mini pump that acts like a floor pump with its fold out foot pad, flexible hose and T-handle. Now Topeak even sells a newer model that has a flip out gauge, which would be a nice feature to have if it doesn't add too much bulk.

Quarter Turn Mount

For my birthday I was given  K-Edge CNC quarter turn mount that I am going to use for my Wahoo RFLKT. Looks secure, and I like how I can easily remove  it when I lock up my bike outside.

19° wind chill 9°

-O2 jacket
-polar fleece vest
-wind proof pants
-wool socks
-32degrees longsleeved thermal undershirt
-skull cap
-snowboarding gloves

Was warm and comfortable. My feet were the only things that got cold about 4 miles into the ride. Part of it may be do to the fact that my shoes are very old, and leak air pretty bad. My water bottle started to form ice inside of it by the end of the 10 miles.

Cycling Glove Review

I came across a pretty good review of bike gloves (ways of keeping your hands warm) when riding in colder temps.

Planet Bike Borealis Winter Cycling Gloves with removable fleece liner and windproof fabric

20.8°, wind chill 18°

-O2 Jacket
-polor tech fleece vest
-Champion Duo Dry tshirt
-wind proof Novara pants
-wool socks
-Cannondale bike shoes
-balaclava face mask
-wrist warmers
-Craft Hybrid Weather Gloves
-thick cotton skull cap

Was comfortable. My thumbs did get cold and hurt until I was in my office for a while. My toes were also cold, but overall was comfortable other than in those two areas. Even unzipped the side vents on my jacket to keep my torso from over heating.
