Chase's Bio

I'm a Utah native. Mountain biking, climbing, and traveling are three of my passions that consume most of my time. Split boarding is becoming my winter obsession.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I really like this inflator. I've got a few other models and this is my preferred one to use. Plus it looks the coolest and probably was less expensive than my other purchases. Easy to use and hang on to and nothing but the bare essentials. Fits easily in my saddle bag and is a must-have on road rides, much better for me than dealing with a hand pump.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is the first running specific pack/vest I've ever purchased. I've got to say that it is a HUGE improvement from running with my MTB Camelbak. The vest fits very comfortably. The pockets are a good size and I can even add in a rain jacket with stretchy cable underneath the pocket. Perfect for water, fuel, and a few bad weather just-in-case clothing items. Get out there and run!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This lube does a great job cleaning all the grime out of my chain. Decent lubing properties. I find I need to re-apply on my mountain bike every 50 miles or sometimes less. The ease and price of the lube makes re-applications less troublesome. Should help my chain last a good long time.

I've enjoyed these shoes. They are comfortable and perform well. I'm not much or a racer but I do ride a lot of miles and these shoes have held up great. I run these with spd cleats and they seem plenty stiff to me. The shoes also work great for hiking through patches of snow when pushing the season in Utah. I broke the release lever on one of my shoes and Mavic was kind enough to send me a replacement. They latch securely and breathe well enough.

I think this is a nice bivy. All bivy sacks have breathability issues. The home alone comes with a warning printed on the tag that tells you the bivy isn't breathable and to not zip it up all the way. I like that it is more roomy than just a sack, it's nice to be able to keep some clothes dry with you inside the bivy.

Fit: True to size

I happily bought these as an alternative to the 5.10 canyoneers. The fit is good and the shoe itself seems solid enough. The neoprene bootie is nice but I'm worried the drawcord laces and zip up shell will get clogged with sand. I've only had them through one canyon and I was not impressed with the traction. The outsole fills up with sand much more so than the canyoneers. The shoe is also a little more boxy which makes edging/smearing more difficult. I'll keep testing them out but I think the canyoneers still reign supreme.

---Update, after a couple more uses these have really grown on me. I think the rubber needed to break in a little bit. Fit is still good and they have been quite durable.

I wear a Medium in Giro helmets and went with a medium with this helmet. I had to return it for the large. The helmet now fits great and has amazing ventilation. Light weight and good looking. The straps are comfortable and the dial at the back of the helmet is easy to tighten/loosen on the go even with gloves on. Have not had to test out the durability yet (and I hope not to do so) but it seems solid enough.

I think these are pretty decent tires at a decent price. They roll fast and have good traction. I'm running them on my new single speed bike and they are a huge improvement over the tires that came with the bike. Thinking about buying another set to throw on my other bike.
