When Strava was launched it was clear we had a completely new way of competing against other people who were riding the same routes we did. And even better, wherever you would ride you could measure your performance against others. As the amount of Strava users exploded it really became harder and harder to achieve top positions on those virtual Strava segment leaderboards. Many became KOM hunters in this process. Now there's a completely new way of targeting Strava segments. The Segments Live app introduces a new era in beating yourself and others.
Custom hand built wheels, is there any sense in paying lots and lots for that if you're not competing on the elite level? What if you could get a pair of custom hand built wheels for a reasonable price? What if you could even have custom hand built wheels especially made for you, according to your needs, lighter, stiffer and more comfortable than many high-end factory made wheels for a similar price? Kanata Wheel Works is a single-man company located in Rauma, Finland, doing exactly as the company name says, building wheels. I had the possibility to test a pair of Kanata Wheel Works Custom SL 23 Aluminium wheels.
