The DZR Mechanic Fills the Gap Between Work and Ride

DZR Mechanic Bike ShoeBuilding a shoe that can effortlessly cross from commuting duty to office duty is a difficult task. You have polar opposite interests competing for inclusion. On the one hand, you need the shoes to be stiff to transfer energy to the cranks. On the other, you want shoes that provide all-day comfort and look stylish in an office setting. At Engearment, we toss another wrench in there by using standing desks. So, not only do shoes have to be comfortable enough to wear all day - you have to be able to stand in them all day, too. Enter the DZR Mechanic.

Flipcrown – Slim your Bike for Storage

Flipcrown wall mountWe love bikes at Engearment. We tend to collect them. In fact, among our skeleton staff of two, we have over 10 bikes. We're also lucky enough to have garages to store them in. But, we recognize that not everyone is as lucky as we are. Belgian cyclists-slash-designers Patrick Jacquet and Rob De Schutter recognize that as well, so they designed a system to help reduce the storage space needed to keep your bike. They call it the Flipcrown.

Tannus Tire Aither 1.1 – No More Flat Tires

Tannus Tire Aither 1.1 packageOne of the reasons we like tubeless mountain bike tires at Engearment is the inherent flat-proofing that comes with it. With some liquid sealant inside, the tire will self-seal most thorns or cactus needle punctures. Road tubeless is coming along as well, but has some engineering issues that come with the much higher pressures and forces of road biking that manufacturers are still working to overcome. In the meantime, the Tannus Tire Aither 1.1 fills in a gap.
