Mike Newberry's Bio

I have a kick ass job with Competitive Cyclist and work with a bunch of great guys....

Been here (SLC) since '94 and just can't quite leave....can't quite put my finger on why.

Vittoria...say no more. The AKA is a great, dry trail tire...much like the Saguaro, it is predictable in corners, rolls fast and is durable. I run it TL at around 18-20psi on Enve 50/50 hoops and ride in the PC/SLC trail system and beyond (Sun Valley, etc).

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Just bought these...love the Velcro (hate slipons), my hands aren't that big (ski glove size 8) but had to buy the large....hope the bright green helps me be more visible to oncoming riders.

Update: love these...the fit is perfect, they're light and offer great grip.

I picked these up last minute, knew of Rab through other products and didn't think too hard once I started looking. I needed something quick (and inexpensive) to fit the bill for a hunting trip on Stansbury Island as I knew there might be snow involved. Bottom line, these worked great.

I bought the Medium and they fit just below my knee (small would have been too short). The velcro cuff is a no brainer and the loop around the bottom of the boot works fine and is adjustable via velcro on the inside of the gaiter. The lace hook is 'backward' as it were and stays in place perfectly.

My only 'complaint' is that the gaiter didn't stay up (above the calf) all that well but that may have been a function of the pants I was wearing vs. any real problem.
