After checking out the dining hall, gym, and dorms we headed down into the little neighborhood that is part of the base.

Who will win these? My money’s on at least one of them going to Christina Peck, who is widely considered to be the best router at these style of races, the other? I’d say Austin is a good bet.

We’ll have to wait and see.

The Knog Party Combo. Because you need an excuse.

by Saisha on August 26, 2014

Party girl here, reporting for Bike Jerks and the new Knog Party Combo lock.
If you like to have a good time, and you know I do, this lil lock is your new best bud. You can bomb around town all day long and get in and out like a champ.
The first and most obvious thing that is great about the Party Combo is NO KEYS. You won’t be toting some over-loaded ring like a creepy janitor.
And the second: it’s light and flexy. You can wrap it on your top tube and rock out. 300g (that’s less than a pound for you US bitches.) The PC has a 3/10 security rating, so you definitely want to be jumping around vs. tying up for the night.
Setup is pretty easy, though the packaging is hard to get into. I tore up the instructions in the process. Make sure your combo is aligned with the correct dots before you set. I also made that mistake. It’s a little fussy at first to close and release, but once you pop it on and off a few times, it becomes second nature.
Not to disregard style, the combo numbers are in that cool Knoggy font, and it comes in, holy shit, like 8 different colors!
So go grab one that matches your cool sunglasses and party on. But don’t get too lit or you’ll be forced to leave your sweet ride to the mercy of the cruel streets.

Peace.
