Its spring/summer 2010 Pedal Collection will include more stylish shoes made with comfort, socks and commuter bags. The footwear manufacture has made a good impression on the cycling industry thus far, giving riders a stylish shoe specced for cycling. “KEEN knows that cycling is a key part of any HybridLife, which is why we’ve expanded our Pedal collection for SS10 . . . choosing to travel by two wheels doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style for comfort and performance”, said James Curleigh, CEO at KEEN Inc.

An old lock will do, but thieves are getting pretty crafty out there, bringing tools to cut locks. In high-traffic, urban areas such as college campuses, the Kryptonite New York 3000 U Lock will do you a lot of good. Its 16mm through-hardened KryptoniumTM steel shackle actually resists bolt cutters and other leverage attacks. The crossbar features a hardened steel sleeve for extra security, and a double deadbolt locking system makes sure the lock stays locked. It even comes with a lighted key for use in the dark. The Kryptonite New York 3000 U Lock can be purchased at Chain Reaction Cycles $102.01….
