Adam Jaber July 17, 2023

If you’re looking for a new trail running shoe, I’m here to help by breaking down two of Hoka’s most popular options, the Tecton X2 & the Speedgoat 5. Hoka Tecton X2 Price: $ 225 | Men’s Sizes: 7-14  […]

REVIEW: The 686 Magic Pant is Just That

Adam Jaber July 6, 2023

The 686 Magic Pant Price: $119 | Sizes: S, M, L, XL | Colors: Black, White   I’ve been known to be a bit of a 686 Everywhere pant stan. It’s a great pant and is extremely versatile for those of us that work a day job and need to look good but also want to get a good old-fashioned mess around in the after-hours. It is a traditional pant that can double as an active pant. The Magic Pant is the opposite. It’s an activity-centered pant that’s nice enough to show up to a formal dinner in. Features of […]

Adam Jaber April 14, 2023

A Price Point Mountain Bike You Can Actually Ride Finding your first real mountain bike is one of the hardest things about gear buying. Do you get something more expensive? Do you need a full suspension? Is it a good deal? So many questions that require answers, and most of those answers are entirely too subjective. First and foremost, I truly believe if everyone on earth was only allowed to own one bicycle for their entire life, it should be a front suspension mountain bike, AKA a hardtail. These bikes open up vast terrain, are relatively low maintenance, and are […]

Adam Jaber April 13, 2023
