This tire works really well for my riding style and conditions. I'm a fairly aggressive rider that tends to carry to much speed into corners. I've ridden this tire in Northern Colorado and Souther Wyoming on all sorts of trail from loose shale to hard pack to gravel over hard pack and it has served me well. I run them tubeless with Stan's tire Sealant, which WTB doesn't recommend but I haven't had any issues and only one flat.

I love this jacket, it sheds water like a greased duck and it vents well. The stretch cuffs are a little weird, but easily removable. It fits amazing on the bike, the front is short enough to not bunch and the tail keeps my whole butt covered. The hoods fits around a helmet and is super adjustable. I'm 6ft and 200lbs and the large is big enough to wear a thin layer underneath. This jacket is possibly the best rain jacket I've ever worn.

The greatest pedal ever. Light, strong, serviceable and adjustable. I do not condone riding muddy trails, but if you're going to, these will clear mud like you wouldn't believe. Fantastic for cross, commuting or mountain biking. Time pedals have replaced all of my shimano spd and crank bros pedals. I have ATACs on my XC and FS trail bike, and the cheaper Alums on my commuter. I broke a Time Alum by smashing it really hard into a rock a couple of times over a couple of years, and Time sent me a brand new pedal. I love them.

Let me be clear in saying I don't wear these if I'm going to seriously hit the trails. They're perfect for the ride to work/school/bar, great for a quick trail hit afterwards, jim-dandy a for session at the jumps/pump track, and I love 'em for daily wearing. They fit me great, a little baggier than the humvee or singletrack. They're made of nylon but it's been brushed really heavy so it feels like light canvas. I don't carry a lot in my pockets, so the lack of belt loops doesn't bother me, and the adjustable tabs hold them up just fine.
I normally wear 35-36 inch pants and the large fits great.

The replaceable plates sound like a good idea, until they decide to replace themselves in the middle of a trail. The bearings are horrible and horrible to try and overhaul if you don't strip the spindle in the first place. Over a decade in shops and these are in top of the worst pedals I've ever seen. Go buy some Atomlabs or DMRs instead.

I like this jacket, but don't really. The fit isn't bad, but will emphasize the gut. The pockets are roomy, but you can't comfortably put your hands in them. The butt coverage is great, but the front is too long. It's warm, but not super breathable. The tag is gigantic and will stick out of the collar at any chance. It's fantastically weather proof. I've worn it for snowshoeing and skiing too. The knit sleeve cuff is weirdly large. With all the whining about the jacket, as soon as it's snowing, it's on my back, and it makes winter bike commuting much more comfortable.
And no, it doesn't have underarm zips or a removable hood.

It looks pretty good, though has been referred to as my Micheal Jackson Jacket. Not as wind resistant as my Marmot soft shell, but fits a ton better on the bike. I got it on chainlove so the price was amazing. The hood is great and fits well. Wore it with a wool jersey underneath at 15F and was plenty warm. The lack of pit zips is disappointing, and the sleeve extensions were sewn a little off so the sleeve twists with my thumbs in the thumb holes.
