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. The downside is that your bike is being continuously doused in dust, dirt and, if it’s raining moisture. Unless you own an electric car, your bike is also being exposed to exhaust gasses which contain…

As you can see from the photo, Teddy has been way too busy this month and so decided not to focus on a particular product or review. Instead he just wanted to say Happy 2019 and thanks for all of the support last year.  Once he gets caught up on his To-Do list for 2019…

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?). In fact his choice this week is a humble water bottle cage. But just as for want of a nail…

Teddy’s Choice #10

Today Teddy our Shop Corgi hits a milestone with his 10th installment of product recommendations. Like many models, Teddy can be a bit temperamental. For this photo shoot he did a fair amount of complaining and kept trying to leave. A quick lunch break sorted him out though (lunch for actual models: cigarettes and water,…

Continuing in our series of product recommendations by our shop dog Teddy, this week it’s a bike. And not just any bike; it’s one of the best mountain bikes available; Yeti’s SB100. If Teddy’s legs were actually long enough to reach the pedals this is the bike he would choose. Why? 1) It’s short-travel with…

Teddy’s Choice #8

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…

Chain Checker It’s a little known fact that Corgi’s were bred to herd cattle and like other herding dogs tend to want to do that with people as well. You can tell they are constantly doing a head count. Due to the Spring rush at the Shop Teddy hasn’t posted for a while since he has…
