The 111th edition of Paris-Roubaix runs this weekend, April 7th. Fabian Cancellara looks to be in unstoppable form in his quest for a third victory at the iconic race. Show your support with a 2013 Radioshack Leopard Trek Replica Jersey, and go win your own classic.
Another interesting factor of the race will be Team Omega Pharma-QuickStep’s attempt to salvage their 2013 classics campaign with a win by Sylvain Chavanel. Even though Tom Boonen won’t win Paris-Roubaix this year, you can still wear Boonen’s Omega Pharma Quick Step Belgian Champ Jersey.
Now to the dirt…
All trends seem to be pointing to a rather large outpouring of 650b/27.5″ wheel-themed products for 2014. If you are already sold on the benefits of the not-quite-twenty-six size, here’s a chance you can’t pass up. The Stan’s No Tubes Flow EX 650b Wheelset is strong, wide, and light, and ready to ride.
Another trend set to break into the mainstream is 1X10 drivetrains. Until eleven-speed systems come down into the realm of even semi-affordability, a 1X10 allows you to enjoy the benefits of a single front ring. A North Shore Billet 1 X 10 GXP Direct Mount Chainring takes the place of both your crank’s spider and chainring thanks to it’s innovative interface.
