As is my style with new products, I buy them and use them in order to speak about their pros and cons while talking to you, the bike shop, without using a bunch of BS or regurgitating stuff that’s easily found on the internet.
Continuing with this ethos, I have purchased a few goods from our new vendor, DZ Nuts. I procured the chamois cream, the embrocation and the shaving cream. Here are a few of my well thought out, well, thoughts on these items.
DZ Nuts Pro chamois cream: This is the flagship product of Dave Zabriskie’s undercarriage empire. I have used this prior to a number of rides and races and I must say I’m quite happy with the results. A little goes a long way and that’s always good when you’re spending money on something. The cream isn’t oily, so your ‘taint won’t feel like Prince William Sound (are you too young for that reference?) The action is great and you can count on it for long and short rides. It also washes off easily with a little soapy water, so your hands and junk are safe. The only oddity was, well, it’s a little spicy. Nothing that makes it uncomfortable, but it warms more than the, ahem, cockles of your heart.

I admit it, being the most recognizable member of the Cyclone Bicycle Supply, it is odd to test a sort of “get noticed” bike product with me. I live life in the limelight. I have to work hard not to get noticed. Don’t hate the player, hate the game. Anyways, I got tapped to try out the new MonkeyLectric M210 ten LED light. Player.
I had some misgivings at first, seriously. It seemed bulky and I wondered if it would even fit on my low flange Campagnolo C-Record hubs. Player. I also thought it would cramp my style a bit, player. My high profile relies not on how many pieces of flair I am working, but on what I would describe as an instantly recognizable inner fire that burns hot and fast. Player.
I am right now laughing at myself and hoping that you thought I was both serious and going to continue in that vein. I watched Office Space last night and basically wanted to use “flair” in as many ways as possible today. On to the review.
