Hello there and welcome!

Hi, I’m Chad!

My love of cycling started many years ago when ABC’s wide world of sports began broadcasting highlights of the Tour De France. It’s amazing to think back how little coverage there was of the TdF back then.

I would sit glued to the TV, amazed at the incredible scenery and mystique surrounding the sport. As an added bonus, I was lucky enough to have Greg Lemond as a neighbor – sort of! He lived in the next town over.

Fast forward and after an extended break from the sport, I discovered Gran Fondo races. They’re a perfect match for the type of riding I love. Long distance endurance events with a competitive vibe.

As I got more deeply invested in the sport, I was looking for ways to improve my performance and my first priority was to upgrade my wheels. I learned a lot along the way and the origins of this site was to provide a helpful resource for other riders looking to find new wheels.  

I’ve since expanded the site to cover a wide variety of cycling topics with information and insights to help you get the most out of your riding and deepen your connection to the sport and the cycling community.

If you any questions about wheels or anything else, feel free to get in touch

P.S. If you are in the Washington DC area and are looking for ideas for a great route or want to get out for a ride, shoot me an email!
