You know when you wake up on Saturday morning and realize you have nothing planned?  Oh...you don't know?  To be fair, I'd never experienced that glorious feeling until this past weekend, when I woke up only to realize that I had absolutely.nothing.to.do.

You didn't think I forgot about those special ladies out there, right?  Here's my selections for great gifts for that female in your life, whether it be your mom, your girlfriend, your wife, your daughter, or even yourself!

With holiday season in full swing, I thought it'd be nice to share my picks for great gifts for those men in your lives. The gifts range from about $11 to $499, so you're bound to find something right in your price point, whatever it may be!

Black Friday has come and gone, but have no fear!  It’s time for BF’s little sibling to do its thang…that’s right, folks, it’s Cyber Monday.

That’s right, y’all, that magical day of magnificent deals is finally here, good ol’ Black Friday.

Oh, what was that?  You were looking for some sweet sales to help with those post turkey blues?  Well, you’re in luck, ‘cause we have a whole cornucopia of discounts that are going to knock the stuffing right out of ya…check it!

Gather round, pilgrims!  It's almost that magical time of the year when the sales ripen and the heft of their savings bends the boughs of price within reach.  That fantastic Friday when, fat on turkey and drunk on deals, we harvest our holiday bounty.  That magical Monday when we scour cyberspace for the trinkets, trappings, and treasures that will carry us joyously into the new year and beyond.

For my blog post this week, I thought I’d continue my top 5 streak and share my favorite bicycle accessory selections. 

As I was doing my research, I learned that there are nearly endless awesome bicycle accessories out there.  Really though, you should’ve seen how long my list was before I edited...then edited a little more...and finally edited a lot more to get down to my top 5:

I’ve been riding for a while now and heard the word Keirin thrown around a good deal, and yet, for one reason or another, it never really went further than that. I mean, I’d seen some pictures of people in bright clothes with big round helmets…but that was all.

Whether you're giving your ride a style upgrade, swapping a worn chain for a fresh one, or stripping your frame to paint it, at some point you're going to want to remove/replace your chain.

Is there anything worse than a flat tire when you're all geared up and ready to ride?  Yes, bike thieves.  They're the worst thing since unsliced bread and stand alone as a testament to the depths of depravity capable in mankind.  But the second worst thing is definitely a flat tire.

We're excited to announce we've partnered with TOMS! With the release of their brand new Marketplace, our Uniform is a featured product that helps raise money for our friends at charity: water. We could not be more thrilled to be a part of the TOMS family. Besides our Uniform, they have some amazing products from our friends at Apolis, LSTN & more.

A few nights ago, I was Skyping with a good friend of mine—hi Alicia!—who moved to Shanghai this past summer.  We caught up about everything from her Mandarin class to our Halloween costumes, but perhaps one of the most interesting discussion points was Shanghai bike culture.  Because it really was that interesting, I decided to share it with you all through, you guessed it, this blog post! 

Guys, it’s Wednesday!  Why am I excited?  Because Michael had convinced me it was Tuesday, not nearly as good as Wednesday.  So, to celebrate my new found love of toda...

Over here at Pure Fix, we love basketball almost as much as we love bikes, and with the NBA season kicking off, we're getting that itch to shoot some hoops ourselves

We've always had a pretty state of the art basketball center here at HQ, but we're finally outgrowing it, so we're going to test the waters with some organized ball.

Great news, everyone! (Nope, not a guest post by Professor Farnsworth) Hiplok's are in stock so now you can rock out with your lock out!   These things are seriously s...

It’s that time of the week!  That time where no one else has any really good ideas for the blog so they let me take over for the day and talk about streets.  And this week, I packed up my imaginary panniers and rode my city bike up north to the cold, cold, coldness that is Wisconsin.
