US retailer Competitive Cyclist is kindly supporting the blog. I’m grateful for the support and want to say thanks in public.
As usual, anyone generous enough to sponsor this blog gets a shout. This might look like one of those “you would say that, wouldn’t you” moments but a few points about Competitive Cyclist:
- They blog too. They have several contributions and the “What’s New” section is an interesting take on the sport and cycle trade.
- In fact they named The Inner Ring as “blog of the year”. I read somewhere that my friends at the Pavé blog were pleased to be named amongst the top blogs and so I went over to a review of 2010 to see who else was named (in no way was I expecting to feature). Reading through the pieces, I nodded at the recommendations… and then almost fell of my chair when I read this place was the top blog. It brought plenty more US readers.
- Many products have reviews and relevant information like weight and size guides.
- Similarly there’s also an online bike build application on the website. Choose your frame or groupset and from drop down menus you can build an entire bike part by part. Even if you don’t click “buy”, you get the total weight for the bike.
Other retailers no doubt have good websites and helpful reviews. But Competitive Cyclist is backing the Inner Ring so once again, many thanks to the team there.
