Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This bike has been amazing. While it was spendy, and people tend to give anything they spend that amount of money glowing reviews, this bike deserves it. While not a climbing goat, pun intended, if you are worried about your time getting up this was not the right bike for you in the first place. However, if you want to ride your bike everywhere, and are concerned with how big your smile is after the ride, especially the descents, this may be the bike for you. I am 6?4? and the XL fits great, comfortable to climb, yet nimble on the descents. The 27.5 wheels do feel the ideal blend, great rolling over behavior, but super quick and agile on the descents, technical or flowy with features. I ride it mostly in Park City, and would be more than happy with this bike anyplace in town, long XC rides to bike parks(moderate)

I have been very happy with this rack, the ease to get several bikes of varying wheel size on the rack is great. Large 29ers to kids bikes all mount equally as quick with no adjustments needed. While quite large on the back of a vehicle when set-up for 4 bikes, the ease of use is far superior to the hang style racks, where small bikes and odd geometry?s are a huge hassle. No wrestling bikes to the roof, or rubic?s cubic puzzles to get 4 bikes on a 4 bike rack. Would definitely recommend this style of rack to anyone in the market for a bike rack.

Box has been great. The open on both sides feature is really handy, especially if you have a smaller car. Not as big of a deal on a larger SUV where you can only reach one side. The feature that holds the key in place when the box is open is really helpful to not misplace the key, we have all done that. Had the older style Yakima box in the past, the new clamp jaw style mount is much quicker and easier than the old clamp from both ends. Overall very happy with this box

This are a great all-around ski. Enough side cut to carve great turns on groomers, yet wide enough for all but the deepest powder days, all in a light weight package for BC days. Use them 50/50 resort/BC as they are my only alpine setup and they work great in both. Scarpa Pegasus Boots: A great BC boot at a price that does not break the bank. Good width in the boot, as I have at least 13EE sized feet and these have been comfortable without and extra boot work(heat molding/blowing out any areas). Not super stiff so very comfortable all day, but not going to make any world cup carves on the groomers however. Overall I have been very happy with these boots. Marker F12 Bindings: Very happy with this binding set-up, used on my only alpine set-up that sees 50/50 BC and resort use. They have been plenty strong in bounds(6?4? 210lbs) yet a very versatile light BC setup .
