We know this was a tough week for our readers. We left you hanging Monday through Thursday with nothing. But we hope we made it up to you on Friday with not one, but two new reviews! While we could tell you we lined that up just to keep you on your toes, this is merely the reality of having numerous products going through the review process. And the good news is that we already have more articles on tap for next week.
Also, happy Valentine’s Day to all of our readers! Hopefully your significant other surprised you with something shiny and aero to celebrate the day. Or maybe they just let you buy what you’ve had your eye on (we are looking at you Kristopher!)
For those visiting 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 @AeroGeeks, Facebook message us, or email us at info@AeroGeeks.com.

Lactate Threshold Testing with Coach Tommy
Lactate threshold testing is fast becoming one of the key benchmark methods in triathlon, as well as endurance sports in general. In his most recent video, Coach Tommy runs us through the basics of lactate threshold (look for a future Aeromail edition that gives us a deeper dive into the science behind it) and shows us what you can expect if you go through a test.
- Scott Carbon Tri Shoe – After a season of riding and racing, we are ready to share our thoughts. Stay tuned!
- Cannondale Slice Di2 – When we first looked at the Slice, we recognized Cannondale had built something different. No, it’s not built to be the fastest bike in transition. Instead, it was built to find a balance between fit, weight, comfort, and handling. After just a few weeks we are starting to realize that the bike is living up to that promise. Our First Ride is coming soon!
- Wahoo KICKR – Our time with the KICKR was short but sweet and we’re aiming to publish our review for this week.
- Garmin 920xt – The closer we get to the end of the review process, the sadder we get. This is a great product that we have no interest in returning – a true successor to the 910xt. One of the last aspects we are testing is how its step counting feature compares to other fitness trackers on the market, like the Fitbit.
