This is a great pump for road rides, training, and the like. I just dont 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
Volosong is correct. The mount works very well. I have never had a problem with the pump coming loose, rattling or falling out when attached to the frame via its included bracket. Neither has one of my friends that I ride with on a regular basis. Like all Lezyne products this is well engineered and designed.
Is this compatible with the 2009 Shimano Ultegra SL FC-6601/6650-G Crankset?
Durable. Cleans up easily. Protects the carpets/floors from sweat and bike junk during those long winter spins. Works a lot better then an old towel or cut open trash bag on the ground. Lost a star because it still seems a little expensive for what it is.
Works great and is very stable. (Drop the phone books) One riser provides multiple height options and is definitely necessary to get a level ride with a CycleOps trainer. Get a second (or even a third) to increase the options for those TrainRight Climbing workouts.
I have used Kurt Kinetic, OneUp USA, and now CycleOps. The Fluid 2 is as quiet as any trainer I have heard and as realistic a ride as a trainer can provide. The warranty cant be beat. All in all this is a very solid trainer.
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 Thules 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 isnt 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 Thules 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). Its a very good water bottle. You will pay slightly more for the extra CamelBak® technology but I think it is worth it.
Yes. Well it fits in my Toyota Matrix just fine.
If you arent a weight freak then these are the way to go. Not that they are heavy by any means, they just arent carbon fiber. It holds a water bottle, what more do you want it to do. Black goes with any color bike so that is always good too.
Due to its shape its hard to use on a lot things. (i.e. attatching bottle cages, etc.)
Like I said it was free...
I went from $40 shorts from Dick's to these awesome bib shorts from Gore. Comfort, durability, and construction are awesome. Extended trips on the bike are a breeze in these shorts, you wont be disappointed. I found the Gore sizing chart very accurate and like the fit very much.
I am very happy with this helmet. It provides pro comfort, pro ventilation, and pro adjustability / fit and for far less than a pro helmet normally costs.
You wont be disappointed with this helmet.
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.coms slightly inaccurate photo.
Comfortable. Extremely comfortable. I got 44.5 for my size 10.5 foot and it fits like a glove. I couldnt 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.coms 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.
