Project 24.2 Review: CamelBak’s low-slung Charge LR hydration pack

See all of our Project 24.2 posts here! With last year’s superlight adventure racing-oriented Octane LR pack, CamelBak turned their long-time hydration pack design on its side.  With a dedicated 70oz (2L) Antidote sitting across the wearer’s hips, the heaviest part of the wearer’s load could be carried low, relieving the shoulders and lowering the […]

Project 24.2 Review: Magura’s great feeling MT6 disc brakes

See all of our Project 24.2 reviews here! When they were announced last summer, Magura’s MT disc brake line grabbed a lot of attention.  With strikingly light weights and what was claimed to be the industry’s first carbon fiber master cylinder, gram freaks everywhere were at attention.  While the $400/wheel MT8s got most of the […]

See all of our Project 24.2 reviews here! The week before the our last big pre-24 hour race ride, a slick looking WTB Valcon Carbon saddle with carbon rails floated into the Bikerumor workshop for testing. Not many of us are dumb enough to put a brand new saddle on our bikes before we venture […]

Project 24.2 Review: Louis Garneau’s barely there Carbon Lazer Shorts

See all of our Project 24.2 posts here! Though the brand doesn’t seem to get the respect that its high-end products deserve, I’ve long been a fan of Louis Garneau’s shorts. Always well made and in my opinion quite comfortable, Garneau’s shorts show excellent attention to detail. A 12 panel short (also available in a […]

Project 24.2 Initial Review: Giro Ambient 2 cool weather gloves

See all of our Project 24.2 posts here! Looking for some gloves that I could leave in my mountain pack (and to save my white Castelli Chiro WS gloves from the indignities of off-road use), this winter I set out to find a new pair of cold weather mountain bike gloves. At my local REI, […]

Bikerumor Project 24.2 Review: DannyShane Tartan Race jerseys

See all of our Project 24.2 reviews here! Given our intention to take our 24 Hours in the Old Pueblo training and racing a bit more seriously this year, it was only appropriate that Alex and I come up with a team kit.  Balancing the ability to stand out on the race course with the […]

Project 24.2 Review: Rocky Mountain’s Element 70 MSL: the ultimate stage racer?

Check out all of our Project 24.2 posts here! When Rocky Mountain offered to send an Element 70 MSL frame over the border for our Project 24.2 24 hour race frame, I was excited.  Who wouldn’t be excited by the opportunity to spend several months on a full carbon 120mm XC frame designed and tuned […]
