Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have tried the other "environmentally sound" latex products; none work. This works. They did go more environmental but it still works but you will have to fill up your mtn bike tires 2-3 times a season rather than the 1 time a season with the older less environmental products. But this works when you get a nick, pinch, goat head, etc. The other brand I tried from Italy just shot out the tire until it was flat. Never again!

I have both the long finger and short finger versions. I have the med in long finger and wish I had gotten the large. The large fingerless version works well; the gel pads are nice. I don't like pure "no pad gloves" but prefer some padding which this provides. Nice color for cars to see you.

I typically buy my coffee a Pablos in Denver; they roast them local and typically get it fresh so my expectations for this coffee was pretty low as I suspected it would be "old" but it arrived fresh and this espresso blend brewed up nicely in my silvia ranchilio machine. Good creme on each pull so for the price its a no brainer to add to your order

Okay it may sound minor but wow! who was the brain child of the large and nearly impossible white sticker on the side of this bottle. I'm giving it a 2 only b/c of this sticker so if anyone is listening at the company then remove this from all future shipments and I'll order another bottle on my next order. If not I'lll pass. I had to rip small pieces off and that was just the surface of the sticker; I still have to try and remove the "sticky" part; soaked in water all night and still not easy. I'd be embarrassed if I purchased to give as a gift just b/c of this sticker. Sticker on shipment July 13th, 2015

That is the question I get all the time with this 2.4 tire on the front of my ibis mojo hd3 with ibis 741 wheels. Its huge. I'm sure the rims play a significant role but its ridiculous the size. Now the bad part is that its a bear to get onto that same ibis 741 rim. I do all my maintenance for years so I know how to put on a tire but this thing took me 30 mins of massaging it onto the tire and warming it with a hairdryer. Yes its that hard but the reward is sweet grip for days on a true MOTO tire. I don't need 27+ or 29+ when I have this tire on the ibis rims. Truly you don't need them as this tire is the perfect size.

I ride front range stuff in Denver and fruita/moab and it works great in all locations. Even some rain soaked moab and it was fine.

I have the 2.2 in back; much easier to mount but not nearly the same size but for the back tire it works great also.

Great hardback and light gravel tire. All conti's give up some with durability in really rough rocky areas but overall I'll take these everyday. Great grip and no pinch flats. Worked well on my magic crossmax with stans. Seems to run sl small for size compared to other 2.4's but not by much. Been on my bike for last few years and held up well.

Its an adequate glove. Its light weight; not winter gear. Good for me down to about 50's. Not 40's for me but I get cold easily. Min padding and runs tad small. Like the yellow for cars to see. Love most Giro stuff and these are good on sale but can't say great. I haven't tried in the heat in Denver yet. No wind blocking material but those types of gloves are going to more expensive and also really hot

Nice product for light enduro / trail type use. Not protective enough if you are a true downhiller. I started using more padding/protection over the last year; I didn't want anything excessive, heavy. I was looking for the trail version of everything armor and this fits that bill. I got medium as they run small. I didn't like the "tight" fit of the small. The medium fits nice; 145lb, 5'7". Took me some time to get use to the "football" look with the jersey but it breaths well in moab heat. You still sweat but the protection material has holes to breath.

If you like compression in your socks and like them high then you'll love these. They take both hands to put on b/c the compression is rather tight. You have to inch worm them up. They are light and thin and summer socks. The compression is just a tad too much and even though I like tall socks these are pushing it for my taste.

Got these for my 11 yo bmx'er son; will use in spring; much lighter than the FLY shoes he was using before. He loves the flashy colors. He also likes the fit. Construction looks good but can't comment yet on durability but bmx'ing will shred them up if they are no good and I'll leave update.
