The Domestique Critique: RedWhite The Bib UPDATED REVIEW

In June, I reviewed a pair of bibshorts from RedWhite that I purchased myself. I liked them but found a few things like fit and chamois to be less than I expected. I also wrote about how responsive the brand’s found, Yuva, was when I emailed and asked about sizing. I was between a Medium and a Large and decided to buy a Large. Rarely am I a Medium in bibshorts and I feared the dreaded sausage leg. Yuva kindly offered to send me a Medium after my review and suggested that may be at the center of my issues with the bibshort. How could I not give it a try? Hey, a good return policy is a reason to be positive about a brand, as I’ve found out in this case. Continue reading

With These Thighs: a celebration of cyclists of all shapes and sizes | CyclingTips

Anne-Marije Rook of CyclingTips covers women who go unnoticed in the cycling community but make the world of women’s cycling go ’round. I constantly struggle with my body image and inundating myself with brands and images of “what a woman on a bike” should look like. Where are my role models? Where are the women that look like me? Are we not accepted in this world of cycling? Surely you don’t think I’m not worth making clothes for? Is my money not good enough?

Reading Rook’s interview with Marley Blonsky reminds me that I am not alone. And I am badass, and I AM WORTH IT.

The Domestique Critique: La Passione Hexagonal Summer Jersey

Long story long, this past winter I needed an updated pair of ankle length knickers and bought La Passione when they had a sale. It was a great deal and I figured I would Zwift more if they didn’t quite fit right for riding IRL. Turns out they were glorious. Stretchy and comfortable, with pro details like a yoga waistband and a thinner bit of material behind the knees and reflective tags around the ankles. When I saw they were releasing a new women’s collection for SS17, I had to have it. Continue reading

Yellow Gear is Here! (Guest Post)

Yellow Gear

We’re excited to announce our new label Yellow Gear!

After several months of hard work, we’re delighted (and relieved!) to announce the launch of our cycling apparel brand Yellow Gear. We couldn’t be more excited for this adventure!

How it all started


Women’s road cycling is growing. More and more women make the transition from other sports to the road. When we started to get serious about cycling a couple of years ago, we became increasingly frustrated by how difficult it was to find great clothes. Finally, we decided to take matters into our own hands. Our passion for cycling gave us the inspiration for Yellow Gear and the dedication we’ve put into every one of our desings. Continue reading
