For the past year-and-a-half, the brands identified below have become all too familiar to me. It began with the purchase of the Giant AnyRoad 1 bicycle. Soon, living and riding in the city necessitated the purchase of everything else: front and rear lights by PDW, helmet by GIRO, panniers by ORTLIEB, phone mount by TOPEAK.

And this summer I incorporated commuting to work as part of my marathon cross-training. So the purchase of clip-less pedals by EXUSTAR, shoes by SPECIALIZED, and a mechanic stand by FEEDBACK SPORTS ensued.  After long rides, typically occurring over the weekend, my post-ride drink  is a nice cold beer by OMMEGANG, my favorite brewery!
