B-Man 518's Bio

I currently reside in Pueblo Colorado, just a few miles away from the Front Range Rocky Mountain Range. I live for bike riding and ride every chance I get.

When I was first looking at these shorts I was thinking they're really expensive they better be really nice. Turns out they're absolutely amazing riding shorts! As an added bonus the inner compression / padded shorts are removable so you can wear them with any other shorts or pants you like. The Altitude shorts themselves are a kind of stretchy fabric as so they're not restrictive in any way. I've used these shorts riding everything from downhill to XC trails and they work equally great for both, absolutely no restrictions when pedaling up the hills or ripping it down the hills. I don't recall if it's mentioned anywhere in the description, but they also have two Velcro adjustments for waist to make sure they fit just right. Probably my new favorite shorts in my closet, even over my Fox Demo shorts which I used to wear all the time, I'll probably pick up another pair when they go on sale again!

If you're looking at these CO2 canisters wondering if they'll work in your threaded CO2 tire inflator the answer is yes they do! Even though they're advertised for beverages, I've had zero issues using them on the trail to repair a flat tire, and best of all they're a little cheaper than the canisters marketed for trail use.

Great rotor!

I bought these to replace the worn out and bent factory Formula rotors my bike came with stock. I've got these rotors paired with EBC's green formula pads and I noticed a huge difference in stopping power over my old rotors the first lever pull! I assume they stay cool enough, I've never bothered to bail off the bike and touch the rotor or bad to see how warm they really are after a long descent, but I've never had brake fade issues with these rotors.

I love these jerseys, I have 2 of them, and since I've purchased them I'm wearing one when I go for a ride. They're lightweight and plenty breathable for my preferences, even on the warmer days. As with any clothing, the black does get warm in the direct sun so keep that in mind. I've seen a lot of reviews about the neck hole being too small to get over one's head, and I've experienced no such problems with either of my jerseys. I'm giving Fox 2 thumbs up on these!

Make sure you pay attention to what the Yakima website recommends for your vehicle or you'll end up ordering the wrong thing like I did. I messed up and ordered the 1B, because it's 1/2 the price of the 2B, and shows 2 racks in the picture. I now know the 1B means there's only 1 bar in the box... So after ordering the 2nd bar, got it all hooked up and I couldn't be happier! Mounted right up to the preexisting roof mount holes in my Subaru Forester (with the footprint kit that's sold separately). It holds our two mountain bikes with no problems, and doesn't make any popping or clunking noises going around corners like I've experienced with other brand racks. The only wind noise I've noticed from the racks is when there is a nasty crosswind, but I honestly think the wind noise comes more from my Yakima Fork Lifts rather than the Whispbars. I'd highly recommend these to anyone who hauls anything on their roof!

I've been wearing DCs for the last 8 years, everything from phases to Serums. After my last pair of Serums wore out on me I decided to try out some Thirtytwos, and I'm glad I did! These boots feel like you've put on your favorite pair of house slippers to go shred in, but they connect you to the board like it was part of your body. I've never felt a boot that has the feel and board response of these boots. I ride everything from pipe and park to back country heli trips, and I can honestly say that after riding first chair to last call, my feet are glad I'm wearing these boots!

This is my 2nd pair of K2 bindings, I previously owned the Cinch CTS bindings which are totally awesome by the way! I was looking for a pair for a new board I got and wanted a traditional binding. I use these on my back country board and LOVE THEM! Super comfortable, the straps don't make your foot feel funny, or have any chance of breaking due to stupid screws that hold the straps together and break after 3 runs like others tend to do. Very solid construction, super lightweight and it DOES have the adjustable toe plate. I'll never buy another Burton product again, K2 all the way for me!

I got the 175cm Bag. I have 2 boards and they'll both fit just fine if I take the bindings off one. Plenty of room to stash pants, jackets, small people, goggles, food, and anything else you might want to take with you. The only thing I was bummed out about is I have a size 13 boot and they don't fit too well in the "boot pockets". They'll fit in there but the zipper won't zip all the way. If you happen to have the same big foot problem I do the pockets work well for jackets, pants, and thermal underwear. Good solid construction and has plenty of padding. I haven't gone on an airplane with it, but I don't think it would create any problems. On a side note the picture of the red shotgun doesn't do it justice. it's freaking cool!
