We all know how fast a thorn can halt a great ride, and it seems they pop up at the most inopportune moments. Some of us go out and buy high end tires with kevlar beads, and other features in hopes that thorns will learn their place, but even the best tires are still susceptible. The Slime company knows this all too well, and decided to do something about it. Slime is the biggest name in tire sealants, and has been savings countless riders in over 80 countries from frustration for years.
Whether you get pre-slimed tubes, or seal your own, this stuff really works. These tubes can seal punctures up to 3mm for up to two years. That means your days of pulling a tiny thorn out of a flat tire are all but over for good. The best thing is, you don't even need to buy new tubes, just get a bottle of the sealant and get started on your flat free road today!

The problem is, most cycling computers are $100s and so confusing you need to read a dictionary size manual to understand how to use it.

The more we ride, while logging mile after mile on our bikes, the more we get concerned with speed and efficiency. When most riders start out they use traditional platform pedals or the cumbersome and annoying toe clip pedals, only to find they are not getting the performance and speed they crave. For riders looking to get more out of every pedal stroke, clipless is really the only option. Those of us who have been introduced to this game changer have never looked back, and with good reason. Not only do clipless pedals increase speed, control, efficiency, and overall awesomeness, they also give your legs a more rounded workout, which will increase your endurance.
A lot of new riders are scared to make the switch unfortunately, and are missing out of a better ride. Some riders who haven't made the switch are nervous about being clipped into the bike, and others are worried about the added cost of pedals and shoes. Luckily the the Shimano R550 has taken care of both of these concerns. With an easily adjustable tension setting, allowing riders to make it easier than ever to clip in and out, and an unbeatable price point for the technology, there has never been a better time to go clipless.
We are taking 30% off this incredible pedal set all week long, making it an unbelievable $69.99! The R550 weighs in at a mere 330 grams for the pair, and features top level technologies at a fraction of the cost of Ultegra and Dura Ace.
