Happy Birthday to AeroGeeks! A year ago we launched AeroGeeks with the intention of creating a triathlon tech site our own way. 100,000 visitors and almost 350,000 views later we are going to call our first year a huge success and we have our readers to thank!


Over the past year we have had the opportunity to share both breaking news and reviews of the latest products. For those that are curious our top five most viewed articles are listed below.

Thank you for all of our success and as always make sure to let us know what you want to see. We have quite a few ongoing reviews but are always looking for what’s next.

For those visiting us for the first time—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 @AeroGeeksFacebook message us, or email us at info@AeroGeeks.com.

Hoo Ha Ride Glide skin & chamois cream for women

For those among us that have ever experienced a saddle sore, you know how important selecting the right chamois cream can be. That’s why Reflect Sports created a skin and chamois cream formulated just for women. Hoo Ha Ride Glide is meant to protect, well…your hoo ha…from saddle sores, chafing, friction burns, irritation, and inflammation. Hoo Ha Ride Glide is also antibacterial and enriched with essential oils like tea tree and peppermint. Overall, we found this chamois cream to be very effective. So far we have yet to experience any chafing or soreness—even during rides up to 4 hours in length.

Friday: Vision Metron Aero Brake Lever – Review

Current Reviews:

  1. Reynolds 72/90 –We’re finally starting to think about finishing this review but the problem is that we really do not want to give the wheels back. One of the best wheelsets we have ridden. Reynolds 72/90 – First Ride
  2. Wheelbuilder.com PowerTap-Equiped Reynolds Aero 72 – The PowerTap started working again after the issues we had last week. We suspect this may have been an issue with the Garmin not correctly reading the signal but we will have to see if it crops back up. WheelBuilder Reynolds Aero PowerTap Package – First Ride
  3. Dash Cycles TT.9 – Final Thoughts coming this week. Dash Cycles TT.9 – First ride
  4. Vision TriMax Carbon Base Bar and Metron Brake Levers– We shared our thoughts on the Aero Brake Levers this past week – check them out. Vision TriMax Carbon Base Bar – First Ride, Vision Metron Aero Brake Lever – Review
  5. Bontrager Aeolus 3 D3 Clinchers – Another wheelset that we are starting to wrap up. Look out for final thoughts in a few more weeks. Bontrager Aeolus 3 D3 Clinchers – First Ride
  6. Profile Design TwentyFour Series – Mike should be getting his turn on the TwentyFour series in another week. After spending so much time recently with the Reynolds it should make for an interesting comparison. Profile Design TwentyFour Series – First Ride
  7. XLAB Torpedo System 100/400 – We spent most of our initial time with the 100. Now it is time to check out the 400. XLAB Torpedo System – First Ride
  8. Bontrager XXX Aero – Devon spent the week on the Felt and Cervelo this week and did not get a chance to ride the LaPierre with the XXX. But knowing that Mike is getting the S5 starting Monday he should have plenty of time to spend with the XXX.  Bontrager XXX Aero – First Ride
  9. Cervelo S5 – Mike’s time with the S5 starts Monday. Look for our First thoughts in another few weeks.
  10. Speedfil Z4/R3 – The QR had the SpeedFil Z4 and R3 installed on it last week and while it is too early to give any sort of opinion we can already say that the Tube Clip that comes with the Z4 is simply brilliant. It is one of those details that the guys at SpeedFil got absolutely right.
  11. Rudy Project Agon – Rudy Project sent over their newest frames – the Agons. Designed with Cycling in mind they sport a built in ventilation system meant to eliminate fogging. We will let you know how this claim stands up to the test.

As always, thanks for reading AeroGeeks and helping build the AG community. Remember that our favorite reviews are the ones that you suggest. Let us know what you would like to see on our pages!
