It’s that time of the year to think about upgrading the cycling quiver. But where best to put your money? We are asked constantly about different pieces of gear, what’s the best bang for your buck, what kind of cycling computer to buy, which tires to use for X race, etc. With the cycling season in full swing, we decided to stop by Excel Sports, our local cycling superstore to record a podcast walking through our favorite items at the $50, $100, $250, $500, and $1,000 price points.

The whole purpose is to share our recommendations as cycling coaches for products that have a very tangible and practical application for your training and performance, in order to ride faster and perform better. For this reason, we didn’t discuss carbon wheels or frames, pedals or shoes, but instead focused on the “little” things that you might not think about as essential items for cycling success.

For all your cycling gear needs, definitely check out Excel Sports and remember your FasCat Team Discount for being a part of our community.
