This is a great pump for road rides, training, and the like. I just don’t trust my skills with one CO2 cartridge when in a pinch. Riders who complain about the pump taking 100s of strokes to achieve pressure are being unrealistic about the abilities of a small, light, pump the stashes easily in your jersey or tucks behind a bottle cage. It is great for what it is meant for…saving my ass flat after flat…

This faring does help reduce some of the noise caused by after market roof racks but certainly not all of it. The biggest reason it gets 3 stars is the way it attaches to Thule’s Aero rack system. Over all it is a pretty poor design resulting in the inability to use the faring at the same time as a ski rack. It isn’t a big deal during the summer when carting around bikes, but up here in New England it would be nice to use it for Ski season as well.

This bar package is sexy. This is easily the nicest looking aftermarket roof rack available. The only down side is that some of the Thule products require adapters or a little finagling on the consumers part to make bike racks, ski racks, etc. fit perfect on the Aero bars vs. the standard Thule bars. However, it is certainly not a reason to forgo Thule’s Aero system; these bars work great and look even better.

Thule makes great products you can trust and will last through many seasons of use and their customer service is great. I found these footings a little difficult to get on the car. A few of the plastic pieces had manufacturing inconsistencies in them that made it very difficult to correctly install without causing damage. I called Thule and explained the problem; they sent me replacement parts the next day. Once on the car this rack system is a dream, it works great and the aero aesthetics make it appear closer to a factory installation. It would have gotten more stars if it were easier to install, but is still a great product.

This is classic water bottle with a slightly updated design. It utilizes The New CamelBak® Jet Valve™, a revolutionary self-sealing valve. Fits nicely in any bottle holder I have tried. The Podium Bottle is the official bottle of the Garmin Slipstream Cycling Team (if that type of thing matters to you). It’s a very good water bottle. You will pay slightly more for the extra CamelBak® technology but I think it is worth it.

Great Peddals, Not Exactly Ultegra...
4 5

These are good pedals. Shimano lists them as part of the Ultegra line of products. However, unlike the picture here shows they do not say Ultegra anywhere on them. They provide a nice stable platform and have rock solid bomb proof construction. When you step into these there is no question whether or not you are “in”, even with the tension turned all the way down this is a stable strong set of pedals. Only reason for 4 stars is Realcyclist.com’s slightly inaccurate photo.

Comfortable. Extremely comfortable. I got 44.5 for my size 10.5 foot and it fits like a glove. I couldn’t be happier with the fit, appearance, and general quality of construction. Some times the ratcheting buckle on cycling shoes feels cheep and flimsy but I am impressed with the quality of this one. And with Reacyclist.com’s awesome exchange policy I had no concerns buying a shoe online.

This is a high quality shoe for an even better price. Give these a chance.
