Topeak MTX Trunk Bag DXP TT9635B

I own four Topeak MTX Trunk Bags and I love them. I have been using Topeak bags for eleven years and they are great for everyday use. I have used them for commuting, touring and grocery shopping. They are durable and with Topeaks MTX system, they are easy to remove as needed. When I get to work, I just slide the bag with my lunch in it out of the rack and take it to the break room with me.

Solarstorm Bicycle Light 12000LM CRED XM-L LED Bike Bicycle HeadLight Flashlight

Bicycle headlight

This is without a doubt the best bicycle headlight for the money. At 12000 lumen, it is as bright as a car headlight.

The down side to it is that on full brightness, it last about a hour and half. Also the mount that it comes with allows it to move fairly easily when you hit a hard bump.

The up side is that I see well enough with it to see in any weather and be seen as well. They have three brightness modes and a flash mode. They work as well as the three Cygolites that I have owned. Just the batteries do not last as long and they do not have as many flash modes.

Cycliq Fly12


I have been using the Fly12 for two years. It always records a great video and has a great battery life. With the light flashing, I usually get about fours of battery life. Up to seven hours when I do not use the light.

Wasson Way Trail

Madison Trail Head - Wasson Way Trail

I ride Wasson Way on almost a daily basis. It's a great new rail-trail that connects Hyde Park with Norwood-Evanston here in Cincinnati. The trail is intended for walkers, bicyclist and Runners as a means for exercise, getting outdoors and making the city more connected with out the use of a car.

Bobgear Ibex - One Tough Trailer

Bobgear Ibex

I have owned this trailer since 2008. It is one tough unit and well worth the $400 that I paid for it.

I originally purchased it for my trip to the Florida Everglades and other excursions, but I have used it for so much more. Recently during my move, I used it to move anything that wasn't to big to fit on it. Including my computer, clothing, camping gear and all of my cycling gear.

I have also used it in everyday needs. Such as weekly trips to the grocery store and the laundromat.
