Former professional U.S. Postal Service cyclist Chad Gerlach has recently relapsed. The cyclist gained popularity for his appearance on A&E’s “Intervention” for a 5-year addiction he had to crack-cocaine and alcohol.

Gerlach spent several years panhandling the downtown Sacramento area streets, where he resided as a homeless for several years prior to his appearance on A&E’s “Intervention”. The transition from pro cyclist to homeless crack addict sparked after being booted off the U.S. Postal Service team for issues involving Gerlach and a team member, Lance Armstrong.

With a support base of family, friends, and TV network A&E, Gerlach rebounded from his addiction and went on to sign with the Amore&Vita pro cycling team.

The Colnago CLX 2.0 road bike, a bike for riders who appreciate a carbon road bike but not the price it’s often associated with, is an Italian masterpiece made possible through extensive research and development. The CLX 2.0 frame has a monocoque front triangle where the rear triangle is lugged. Towards the rear of the frame, lugged and bonded seat and chainstays were implemented to increase the frame’s overall strength. To make for a stiffer ride, the top and down tube host ribs. The seatstay on Colnago’s CLX 2.0 features a curvature, which helps with control during a sudden stop. When compared to the CLX, which made its debut several years ago, the Colnago CLX 2.0 is lighter, stiffer, and a safer ride. Colnago is offering the CLX 2.0 with a Shimano Ultegra option for $3,699 or a Campagnolo Athena/Chorus for $4,059.

The Nike Air Zoom Tiempo, originally designed for soccer and now part of the LIVESTRONG collection, has just been revamped for the inner city cyclist some time ago and has re-released yesterday. A total of eight riders helped Nike transform the soccer shoe into a shoe tailored especially for the urban cyclist. Each color way corresponds to the hometown of its influential rider. The eight riders consisted of Kyle Demers from New York City, Jupiter Desphy from Los Angeles, Superted from London, Takaharu Okada from Tokyo, Yorgo Tloupas from Paris, Henrik Kuerschner from Berlin, Massan from San Francisco, and Lance Armstrong coming out of Austin. Together they re-designed the sneaker with a stiffer sole, which makes for an easier pedaling experience.
