Welcome to TARMACANDIRT. My intention is to provide a reliable source of objective, fact based information, and product assessments based on accumulated knowledge from more than 30 years of broad experience in the cycling industry. I know of no other resource with such extensive knowledge that is unencumbered by an obligation to a media organization or industry corporation. I am not on anyone’s payroll, and I do not accept financial support from any of the companies or individuals I write about to promote their products or agendas.
