Cooper's Bio

I'm a graphic designer by day and dusk-ninja/weekend warrior the rest of the time. I ride XC Mountain Bikes. Camp and Backpack lots. And I love quality long lasting products and hate wasteful consumer driven production of garbage anything.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a great bb that's super affordable. If you aren't bound by having the most expensive parts on your bike there really isn't that any weight difference between this and the blackbox xx version. Your biggest difference is your bearings, but I have this on three of my bikes and my spouses and they are bullet proof. Never had any issues or complaints. I like the darker anodized look too.

I own the 17 too and have purchased many of the original CB bike tools as gifts to family members and biking pals. I have seen some of them get loose but that's just a quick tighten to fix and you're good. I would love to see some pics of the actual tool open with attention to the details and make some judgment calls from there. Show me the goods!

I've had fork mount racks for years and finally made the switch to this and couldn't be more happy. So convenient and I really like the new updated security features of the lock cables for each bike and the locking hitch. I also really appreciate not needing to take a wheel off or lift it over my head because I am a lazy weakling.

I ordered a medium for my 29er and it was huge. I think the sizing refers to how big of a chainstay it fits and not the length, which i based my size off the length because of a review below. I would order a small for 75% of the bikes out there and if you have a huge chain stay on a downhill bike then maybe go with the med or large. Looks sexier than the lizzard skins for sure!

Best GXP/BSA External PF30 Adapter
5 5

I used this on a new bike I got with a PF30 type BB so I could keep using my GXP/BSA Cranks until I could afford some BB30 cranks. There are a few out there but this one is legit, composite material, works perfectly. In my photo you can see how it basically just sits/looks like a bb spacer. If you need to use spacers with your cranks just use them the same way you would on your regular BSA English threaded bbs shell.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are great for in the glove or mitt. I use these with my Burton AK Yeti Mitt's and they work great. On super cold days I would recommend something a little warmer but the touch screen feature is nice when I can get it to work, but better than now touch screen. I would get these and get something a little warmer to have a couple options throughout the season. These are not a waterproof glove to those who are wondering, they are a jersey knit tight weave liner.

I have a few different hydration packs that have served me well but nothing like the M.U.L.E. With the version of the Camelbak bladder and the wide range of adjustments this pack offers, it might just be my favorite pack. Its small enough to use when I go Mountain Biking, but adjusts to be able to carry a big load when I go on a day hike...it's like a trusty little load toting mule that wraps itself on my back holding all my valuables safely.

The thing I like the most about this pack and what differentiates it from the others I have had is that its comfortable under load, has loads of features, straps, adjusting, and has cool removable hip straps if you don't want them dangling down and it doesn't have any harsh edges that dig into your back as you pedal or hike.

Get yer hike on!

No matter how much we cleaned and drained our hydration packs, over time they started to get grimy and this thing was a lifesaver. I read reviews on the cheaper version of this and after using it realized why it is necessary to have the longer handle. It also works perfectly with our hydration packs that aren't camelbak too!

Bottom line...don't skimp, stay fresh and algae free!
