Hello wooden bicycles

You'll definitely need padded shorts if the saddle is wood, you'll also need a metric tonne of patience and ingenuity to build one.Wooden bicycles are not likely to become a commodity item, but man oh man it would be epic to see more of them rolling around the place...Nothing like a little dreaming for a moment. I'm heading back to reality now, se

About two years ago my brother purchased a device called a Back Buddy for me, knowing how much physical exercise I did and how sore my muscles often were.

I have loved and used this product so much that when I was in the US last year with my girlfriend Cecilia Blakeley I purchased a travel size one so I could use it while overseas and also fit it in my bag.

It's basically a personal massage device; it's shaped so that using your hands you can target almost all the pressure points on your body, no matter where they are.

I can highly recommend one of these for anyone that pushes and demands a lot from their body. It will help you in many ways in including reducing future injuries. I still go and get massages, but as long as I am using this for at least 5 minutes each day, I don't need to go at anywhere near the rate I used to.

Opinion: Nike Air Tailwind โ€™79

Nike has pulled the dust cover off its classic Tailwind 78 silhouette, thankfully. A retro runner that looks as good today as it did back then. Dropping a box full of colourful updates, the makeover is sure to delight any sneakerhead, let's discuss. Say aloha to a racing goddess. Making her debut and first striking the pavement some 32

We can't compare apples to apples anymore. When it comes to commerce, 'business as usual' isn't nearly going to cut it in the transparent world we exist.

Opinion: Chasing No One

Running has been described as the world's most accessible sport. It's free, fun and good for you, there's a lot to love about something so simple. Booming in the US in the 1970s, road running has come along way since millions, including the 39th U.S. President, Jimmy Carter who took to the sport. Running spread far and wide, fast becoming par
