We've got DesFit onboard to give us an in-depth review and tutorial of the new Elite Sterzo and Sterzo Smart steering blocks. Adding either of these to your indoor riding studio will make those trainer sessions just a tad better. I didn't know I needed one of these until this morning.

We're very happy to have Des back this week with his in-depth review of the Garmin Varia RVR315 and RTL515 tail light and tail light radar. These seem like they'd be especially beneficial when the NoCo winds howl, making it difficult to hear approaching cars.

If you're considering buying a smart trainer to beat the heat, the Elite Suito might be the one to get. It comes in at a great price point (relatively speaking for a bike trainer) has all the usual features and even comes with a cassette and riser. At $799.00 this trainer is a particularly good buy if you're looking to save space as it folds up very compactly. 

DesFit gives his first impressions below.

This week our own DesFit takes a long term look at the Elite Direto direct drive smart trainer.  I may be late to the party but I'd never heard of Direto before. Sounds like its worth checking out.

If you see a guy bombing around on an orange RKT talking to himself, that's probably DesFit working on his next gear review, think nothing of it. His latest review of the 2018 Niner RKT 9 is phenomenal. His ability to narrate white riding is impressive.  He also does a great job of showcasing/discussing many of our favorite trails; Max, Shoreline, Res Ridge, Timber, Kimmons, the Valley trails. It's fun to watch his line selection. I bet you a shinny nickel that you'll want to go for an mtb ride after watching it.
