I actually own another stand, but my brother-in-law has this one. Mine is also a portable stand that has tripod legs. However mine has the traditional clamp that you would clamp on a seat post. When we built my wife's cervelo slc sl, it has an aero seat post which forced me to clamp onto the carbon frame. I was nervous that I was going to put too much pressure on the frame and have it break. The PRS 20 eliminates that problem by not clamping at all. It just sits on the bottom bracket and clamps in on the front fork. No worrying about crushing carbon. Genius.

I bought a bunch of these for a week long ride I did down the pacific coast. The bonktown price couldn't be beat. They work well but I wish that the valves were threaded. That way you use that little screw like they have on the specialized tubes to help get the pump on and prevent pinch flats while pumping. I have Mavic Ksyriums and when the tires are all the way flat it is a little hard to get the pump onto the valve. But I rode from Portland to San Fransisco with a pair of these tubes without a single flat. 4/5 stars from me.

I got this vest as a Christmas gift really like it. I was on a group ride in southern Utah and a storm blew in when we were far from home. We had no choice but to ride back in a down poor. I slipped this baby on and was the only one without a red mud streak up my back. My vest just washed right off. (if only it could have covered my bibs). It is light weight and stows in your jersey pocket without any trouble. I am 6'0" and 175 and my large fits me well. Castelli sizes are a bit weird. I usually wear a medium jersey but got the vest a size larger to fit over a base layer and jersey...glad I did.

I am a fan of the Fi'zi:k bar tape. I have had the black cork stuff as long as I can remember and decided to switch to white. I tried a white cork but it got dirty too fast. This tape has stayed clean much longer. It doesn't have the padding that cork does but it makes up for it in style. I have gotten used to it anyway and don't really wear gloves either. Since my initial purchase I have put this tape on many of my friends bikes and on my commuter. I am sold.

I am a fan of the Tau pullover. I got the bean green and the color is even better than on computer. I am 6'0" and 175 lbs and the medium fits me just right. Not tight or loose. I am suprised how wind proof and warm it is while still being soft. It works great as a mid-layer. Not water proof at all, just fleece. If I could go back I think i would pay the extra $25 and get the tau jacket with the full zip instead of just the pullover. Still I give it 5 stars and am very pleased with it.

These arm warmers are sweet. I have had a pair of santini arm warmers. The pearl izumi warmers are much warmer and cost less. Plus the visible seams look sexy. I am 6'0" and 175 lbs and ordered the mediums and they fit nice (although I do has skinny arms). This are small enough to stuff in your jersey pocket and keep you ready for any weather without weighing you down. I don't know how I lived without warmers.

I loved the Chalk Pod when I first got it. It was the envy of all my friends at the climbing gym. With the zipper top and internal draw string my hands were nice and dry but i didn't feel like I was inhaling as many lung damaging particulates as a window washer in down town LA. It folds down nice and small for storage and transport in my gym bag and doesn't leek chalk all over my other gear. I loved it so much I started buying them for my bouldering buddies for their birthdays. I was a hero...until they started falling apart. The zipper broke on one, the stitching on mine came undone after only a few months... Of the four that we had in our climbing group, only one is still intact and it hasn't even been a year yet. I am still giving it 3 stars because most on these torn seams and broken zipper doesn't make them useless and they are well designed.

I bought these shades after loosing my pair of spys. After getting my Jawbones I wish I would have lost them earlier. I use this all the time but bought them specifically for cycling. I would say my face size is on the small end of the medium category and have a hard time finding glasses that fit well. I normally buy Spy because the scoops tend to fit the best. But I like these WAY better. They fit my face and prevent the wind from drying out my contacts while riding. The interchangeable lens work amazing and allows me to quickly change to a lighter lens for early morning rides without having to tug them out and leave fingerprints all over them. I haven't had any problems with them fogging up. Awesome...and for that price they should be.

This shirt is great! The fabric is super soft and really light. I am 6'0" and 175 lbs and a medium fits me well. The shirt is long as stated in another review, but not too long. Just long enough to not show your crack when riding a road bike to work. I do wish the shirt was a bit more fitted. But am still buying one in another color. I heart Prana!
