Ergon GP2 Grip Review

Hi, A quick introduction, my names Stuart McGregor and I’ve fairly recently got into cycling/Mountain Biking (Later summer 2011) Initially I borrowed a mates Cove Stiffee, he wouldn’t sell it for £200 (!) so I bought an old but decent condition Mongoose Rockadile, this did me fine until I actually started going properly off road, so I managed to […]

Endura Singletrack Shorts Review

Endura Singletrack Shorts – A Review

I was bought a pair of Singletrack MTB Shorts by Endura for my birthday in October, and since then they’ve been my go-to shorts. I wanted to make sure I’d given them a good battering before posting a review, so now it’s here! Why Endura Singletrack MTB Shorts? I’ve read a few reviews of these shorts […]

ProductX POV iPhone Camera Case for Video and Photos – A Review

A few weeks ago, I received an email from the guys at ProductX asking whether I’d like to review their new iPhone Point Of View (POV) Camera Case. I hadn’t considered making video before, although I do enjoy watching other people’s POV Mountain Biking videos. I gladly took the opportunity though, as the chance to try […]


Endura MT500 Burner MTB Jersey Review

If You Needed A Mountain Bike Specific Cycling Jersey… … how would you decide which one to buy? I’ve read reviews in magazines and the Endura MT500 consistently scores highly for value, design, looks and feel on the bike. That’s how it ended up on my shortlist. I’ve mainly worn “traditional”-looking cycling jerseys up to […]


Nuun vs High5 Electrolyte Tablets – No Sugar Hydration Comparison (for Cyclists, and Diabetics too)

I’ve been delighted with the recent trend towards no-sugar electrolyte replacement drinks – I have diabetes, so most isotonic drinks were off the menu thanks to their alarming sugar content. A free sample of High5 Zero was taped to the front of a magazine recently, and I saw Nuun tabs for sale in Leisure Lakes […]


How Do You Keep Your Head Cool Whilst Cycling?

Airhead Cool Spray – Review I know a guy who has a lot of good ideas.  He’s got connections to some leading trichologists and, between them, they’ve developed some ingenious solutions to common problems.  One such solution is Airhead Cool Spray. A little while ago I was asked to review this product as my friend […]


Importing Cyclemeter Rides Into Strava (kml to gpx)

Cyclemeter I use Cyclemeter to track my rides, and I like it.  The iPhone app works really well, doesn’t suck the life out of my battery (as long as the backlight’s switched off) and reliably posts my rides to Twitter, Facebook and the DailyMile site, which has some excellent display and reporting. So, I wasn’t looking […]


Fox Tahoe MTB Gloves Review

A few weeks ago I decided I should invest in some new gloves for warmer weather.  Previously I’d been wearing a pair of fingerless gloves from Decathlon and, whilst they’re ok, the padding on the palm has become a problem for me, making me a little uncomfortable on longer jaunts. Based on a few factors, […]


Tigra iPhone Handlebar Bike Mount Review

You might like to take your smartphone along with you if, like me, you: Use GPS maps to follow a trail or to work out exactly where you are. Track your rides, for training or motivation. I know that specific GPS devices like the Garmins do this job beautifully, but to avoid spending £150-£300 on […]


661 Recon Mountain Bike Helmet – Review

If you’ve seen the Urge Enduromatic helmet review here on Mountain Biking Resources, you’ll know that I’m not cool or “yoof” enough to get away with one of those helmets, in my own opinion. (if you haven’t seen it, the review is here). As a typical member of the Mountain Biking demographic, my middle-age-approaching, middle-class […]
