My full-suspension mountain bike frame is too small to fit a water bottle cage. So, every time I ride, I strap a hydration pack to my back. What this means is over time, I’ve amassed an unusually large collection. And, for whatever reason, I’ve found that most of the packs I own fall into one of two categories: room for a bladder and little else, or room for a bladder and anything I could possibly want to bring with me.
That is until I started using the women-specific Osprey Raven 10, which I find to be a happy medium between the two aforementioned categories.
Didn’t make it out to the largest bicycling trade show in North America? You aren’t alone. Luckily reading about the latest and greatest cycling products is (almost) just as fun. About.com caught up with some of the manufacturers who made a splash at the show. Find out what Yakima, Osprey and Sharkies have been working on for 2014.
