Brendan's Bio

I ski in the winter and trail run and mountain bike between times to make the time go past faster.

I've been skiing for about twenty years in Australia, New Zealand, Austria, France, Switzerland, Italy, Chile, and of course the USA. Mostly fixed, but have recently started to tele as well.

These gloves look good. They look burly and look likely to stay together longer than the Black Diamond Prodigy glove.

I wore them on a warm touring day and my hands did not overheat on the climb. No problems on the down either. My hands were comfortable throughout.

There is some stupid writing on the gloves, but they have helpfully included zippers that cover that up.

These tires have a very low rolling resistance, so are excellent for flying along flat trails.

Just be warned that low rolling resistance translates in to low grip, especially when on loose dirt up and downhill.

I have had no problems cornering, just some slippage when the trail gets a little steeper.

I took this jacket out almost every time I went into the backcountry for skiing last season. Takes next to no room in the pack, and is warm when combined with another layer. Probably best not to wear this as the outer layer when skiing through the Scourge of the Wasatch - Gambel Oak - it will rip. Not that that is a bad thing - gave me an opportunity to add some duct tape for coreness.

I bought these to do a Grand Canyon R2R2R. I tried them out a couple of times in training first, but was still wary of getting sick of the taste during the run. So wary that I took another bottle of clear water in case I needed to wash my mouth out. I carried that bottle of clear water the whole way without drinking it. I never got sick of the Nuun taste.

Oh, and I didn't get dehydrated either.

I already had one of these on my other bike, so when I got my new bike - I got this one. I like the weight, and the fact that it has a pressure gauge as part of it.

The only issue I have with it is that you have to thread the strap through a thin slit to reattach the pump after using it, and that can be a little tricky when you're pumped.
