Corgis are known to be stylish dogs…heck, the Queen has had over 30 of them. That is why Teddy is recommending this very cool bell from the Australian company Knog, the Oi Luxe. The new all-metal version of the Oi bell is much-improved over the old plastic one in strength and durability. It also sounds…

Hitch-type bike racks are easier to load and they allow the bikes to draft behind your vehicle improving fuel economy.

Unless you own an electric car, your bike is also being exposed to exhaust gasses which contain…

This week Teddy decided to talk about a helmet but really is more interested in the company Kali Protectives who makes it. This is the Lunati model from Kali and is part of their Enduro series of mountain bike helmets. Kali might not be a brand on your radar but is very innovative in the…

This week Teddy Choice is a product that is  a bit less sexy and exotic than high-performance carbon fibre full-suspension bikes from Yeti (though Teddy himself is looking pretty good these days don’t you think?).

Teddy is now 9 months old and if he had strong opinions about things before it is now doubly so. Now that he is a bit older his favourite activities include wrestling with his “sister” who is double his size, barking at passing dogs, cars, people…leaves…and short walks that take a long time. Patience isn’t…
