Survival Bros takes off on The Gambler 500 Rally. It’s the World’s Largest Trail Cleanup. Think our $300 Surbaru Legacy Wagon LX will make the trip? This car is primed for disaster!

Survival Bros brings you another great product review in HD video.  The ElliptiGO 11R is excellent for climbing mountains, and can go where any road bike can travel.  I was lucky enough to catch a professional competitor at the RV park to review the outdoor racing elliptical cycle.  Special thanks to the veteran that made time to share his experience with us all.  I’d love to hear what you have to say on this product.  Please comment if you own and ElliptiGO, or why you want one.  At $3,500 for the racing model, I don’t know that I’ll be getting an elliptical cycle, but one can dream.  Personally, I think this would be an excellent full body workout, and perfect for rehabilitation from an injury.  It’s comfortable, smooth, but kind of heavy at 39 pounds.  I will have to schedule a test ride at a dealer near me soon.  Watch out Portland!

I can’t believe what I discovered at Goodwill today. At the thrift store I scored a super rare vintage Specialized Allez Sport racing bicycle! Winning. It took all my hustling skills to acquire it.

I walked around looking for treasure, but couldn’t find anything on the shelves, or in the glass displays. I’m always looking for things to flip. Right when I almost called off the hunt, I went to the back and peered through the doors marked employees only. All I could see were bins, and the bike of my dreams. I’ve been wanting a road bike so I can cruise down the Oregon Coast to hike and camp.

I found an employee, and she said the bike won’t be available until they price it tomorrow. I didn’t accept that. I told her I really need a bike, and I’d like to talk to the manager. He came over, and I said I’d be very grateful if he could sell it to me. So he brought it out, and said I can have it for $24.95! Unbelievable. It’s super clean, and loaded with custom parts. I said deal, and paid the man cash. It was even cheaper because I was in Washington, but showed my Oregon I.D., so I didn’t have to pay sales tax. I rode off into the sunset. I can’t find anything on this ride. If you know something about it, please share. I don’t know the year. If you want it, I can make you a deal.

Update: My local Specialized dealer informed me this is a 1994 Allez Sport. It retailed for $650 new.
