Familiarity: I've used it several times

Currently running Racing Ralph or Rocket Ron on the back of an Air 9 Carbon depending on the conditions. It is a race/race prep only bike so I was running the Lite Skin. Great grip. Very confidence inspiring until the 2 hour walk out of the dark woods because of a side wall cut that could not be repaired (and of course everything was hosed down with sealant). Switching to the Snake Skin on the unsprung rear where it takes more of a beating. Just too easy to cut the Lite Skin. Keeping the Lite Skin on the front.

As a long time user of Specialized saddles on all of my bikes regardless of make, I had intended to put a Phenom on a new Niner XC build. Because of price and good reviews I decided to try the Ergon. Glad I did. I have a new favorite. Very comfortable and very light for the price. Helped me achieve my price/weight target for the build.

This is my second set of eggbeater pedals for a second MTB bike. Excellent all around pedal and good value for weight savings. Easy to clip into and out of. Have tried the Candy pedals on a rental bike and did not like them. Found them hard to clip in. Can't imagine going with another MTB pedal.

Fit: True to size
Height: 5' 10"
Weight: 155 lbs
Size Purchased: Medium

Ordered to use as a cool weather jersey. I wear a medium in all jerseys I have ever tried and this was no different. As I believe the description says it is slightly loose for layering, but it is not baggy by any means. Not wind proof, but does add warmth even in wind. Comfortable. Well made. Goes on sale again and I will buy another.

I have owned a number of bike helmets having used one for 25 years or so. My current road helmet is a very nice Specialized and my previous MTB helmet was the same. I needed to replace it after I cracked it in an accident (did its job) so I ordered a well reviewed helmet, which was unfortunately painful to wear. I had read reviews of the Troy Lee helmet and one said "Don't put it on unless you are willing to pay the high price." I decided to try one. The review was right. I have never seen such a well made, well fitting helmet. The comfort and fit is well beyond any helmet I have ever worn. My head and comfort is worth the price. I can't see ever buying anything other than a Troy Lee.

Well made considering the price. Designed well for protection. Unfortunately, painful on my head. Did not fit my head shape and caused painful pressure points, especially one in top back. This could be due to a manufacturing defect in that area. Have not had this problem with any other helmet.
