Testing MTB Gear on the Road this Summer: Jamis 650b, Yakima Doubledown, Pearl Izumi Gear, and More

As anyone who has ridden with me knows: I am not easy on my bike
gear. It’s not that I’m abusive or anything… I try to take care of what I
own so that it will last as long as possible. However, I actually use my gear–and on a regular basis… and for extended periods of time. I expect it to perform, and perform well.

So what’s even more demanding than testing gear on my average weekly
rides? Answer: heading out on the road and riding in the Rocky Mountains
for two months–day in and day out–that’s what! Without further ado,
here are a few of the pieces of gear that I have in for review that are
fixing to be royally punished as I travel the nation and ride hundreds
of miles (if not well over a thousand–we’ll see how much my legs
protest) of challenging singletrack this summer.
