I run a size 9 in 5.10 freerider but runs a bit small. If I were to get another pair of freeriders, I'd get a 9.5 - which size links would fit my feet?
What's the loop and clasp thingie on the back pocket for?
Very nice helmet for the money. Has saved my teeth/face on more than one occasion. Also mates up with Oakley O-Frames very nicely. Half-Jacket sunglasses, not so much. Doesn't obstruct breathing, but a bit warm to wear while climbing. The only complaint is the jack-in-the-box profile it can give you but, then again, it's not a $300+ TLD helmet.
Whether I've got my XC lid or full face on, I grab these pads. Initially, they chafed the back of my knees a tad, but the neoprene stretched where they needed to and now I don't feel a thing. I tend to forget to take them off when I go to get that post-ride burrito.
Last spill I took, they slid down a tad so I might have to tighten up the Velcro straps a bit but I've yet to have any kind of failure. They've protected me exactly as I've expected. When they finally fall apart, I'll be getting another pair or looking at something with d3o.
I actually went ahead and grabbed this pack - my 20D and 28-80mm lens fit comfortably in the pack WITH a full 2L bladder of water. I'll probably have to make some concessions on what else I carry with me (No extra jacket/layer?) but I can definately fit the essentials and my DSLR, although I'll have to fix the lens every time I take it out to shoot.
Good call Angus
Anyone know if you'd be able to fit a smallish DSLR with a kit zoom in here? I'm talking about a 20d with a 28-80mm lens.
I stay nice & dry in this thing. Only complaint is that I wish they had used elastic/lycra for the sleeve cuffs - pushing up the sleeves to cool off a bit can be a bit annoying without any stretch.
