I survived my New Years Resolution.  You know the one. The one where I committed to commute to work for a month. The real question now is, will I ever commute again? At first I thought I’d be so relieved that my month of commuting was finally over, but it's been three days since my last commute and I’m starting to miss the routine of hopping on the bike every morning. The satisfaction of making it safely to work and rewarding myself with a hot cup of coffee.  Most rides I felt like I was traveling through the Arctic, so...

The Kali Bosses, Charlotte Fedane and Brad Waldron, recently packed their bags and headed South to visit our distributors in Ecuador and Chile. It was "work," so we made them share their experience with us. Below we got them to answer our questions about their visit to Ecuador.   You are in the middle of your first trip to Ecuador, is this your first adventure to this part of world? I was in Costa Rica a few years ago, but we've never been as far south as Ecuador before. When our friends at Kao Sports invited us to come for a visit and offered us a...

Or in simpler terms: fat tire heaven. It’s also home to great social events, a fleet of fat tire rental bikes and hours upon hours of cardiovascular goodness. Prévost is fortunate because it is only...

It turns out I didn’t have to make a New Years resolution. My boss already made one for me. I’ll be commuting to work for a whole damn month. At first I couldn't tell if I was excited or nervous, but really I’m nervous. I don’t really ride bikes. I am a skateboarder wishing I could do something more in my element like going to the skateparks around the Bay Area. But that wouldn’t be much of a challenge given that I've been to most of them already, so now I find myself thrown into the world of bicycle commuting....

This week we found ourselves in the Mile High City for the Frostbike Expo, the annual Winter Bicycle Celebration.    We were superstoked to get the invite from Quality Bicycle Products.   The event gave us the opportunity to share Kali story with a pack of bike shop folk and reconnect with a whole bunch of our friends in the industry.   Nothing like a little time in the dead of winter to talk bikes and drool over bicycle bits and bobs. The show floor was filled with plenty of lights and tires and bikes and trainers and kits and wheels and saddles and lubes...
