Revisiting Our Product Reviews

Pretty much every product review we’ve done has went up on the site after only trying the item out very briefly….so I’m back again to revisit some of these reviews and provide my feedback now that I’ve been able to give them a more thorough trial.

Shot Roks – Review Done on May 28, 2010

My post about Shot Roks from Clif Bar was one of the first reviews I did here at Loving the Bike.  It was an unsolicited review meaning that they didn’t send me free samples to try out.  I posted the review because I simply believed in the product and wanted to get the word out to my fellow cyclists.  It was an open-hearted and honest review and I’ve kept that same attitude throughout all the reviews done since then.

What’s cool about this review is that it caught the attention of the guys from Clif Bar and in turn created the opportunity for me to become an ambassador for their company.  So although I purchased the product for that first review, I now receive all the product I could ever want.  I enjoy getting the chance to promote a company that provides great products to cyclists and athletes and am a proud supporter of all they do.

Pearl Izumi Road Race Shoe - Review Done on August 10, 2011

It was the nice shipment from the folks at Pearl Izumi that provided me with my first complementary package of cycling sweetness.  They sent a couple kits along with a hot pair of cycling shoes.  Right away I could tell that the shoes were great, but the review went up after only wearing them a few times.

I’ve had them now for over a year, and can honestly say that they’re still the best pair of cycling shoes I’ve ever owned.  Add in the custom Footbalance insoles that I received last year and my feet are in heaven on each ride.

iBert Safe-T-Seat – Review Done on January 13, 2012

I was a little skeptical of this child seat when I first received the iBert, but because it looked so cool and was something my Son was so excited about…I just had to give it a chance.  It was great to be able to ride around with my Baby Boy right there in front of me, but the more I used it the more I got the feeling that it just wasn’t all that safe.
