We’re a little late with the WiR today since we spent the better part of this morning watching the IM 70.3 World Championships. We hope that some of our readers were able to take advantage of the live feed link we shared via Facebook and Twitter.
We’re very proud to announce that we reached 200,000 views this week—thanks to all of our readers for helping us to reach this milestone!
Finally, two members of the AG staff will be attending Interbike in less than two weeks. We’re planning to share plenty of pictures and updates from the show floor. What would you like to see or hear about?
For all of our new followers—welcome! One of our favorite ways to showcase our readers is our Readers’ Rides album on Facebook. You can check it out at http://on.fb.me/12jEqE3. If you would like to have your bike featured in our album just tweet us at @AeroGeeks, Facebook message us, or email us at info@AeroGeeks.com.
A Little Something Extra
If you’re like any of our AG team members, you likely hear frequent complaints from your significant other about your athletic footwear. Then again, who really likes damp, smelly shoes hanging out in your closet or hallway? We were recently introduced to a product that promises to fix that—Stuffits For Shoes. These neat foot shaped inserts fit right into your running shoes or cycling cleats and fight odor and wetness with reusable cedar inserts. Stuffits are made with Micro-poly wicking fabric infused with Microban antimicrobial protection to help prevent odor causing bacteria on the fabric insert. And when it’s time to run these through the wash, the cedar inserts are removable so you can easily clean the outer fabric cover. And at just about $24, we think that’s a small price to pay to avoid offending your family and friends with smelly shoes.
