Just got done with my first ride on the Road Machine and I'm glad I picked it up. Putting it together was simple, although I switched around the order of one of the instructions to make it easier. (throw me a comment if you need help) Once I got the bike on there it was very stable. I was using it in my attic, which likes to amplify noise to the rest of the house, but from downstairs it's just a very slight droning noise, not annoying or excessive at all. From on the bike, just the slight swooshing noise, but again, nothing bad at all.
This is my first trainer, so I have nothing to base it on, but I'm glad I went with this over the Cycleops as I saved about $80 at REI when it was on sale. (right now it's even cheaper on here)

This review is only for the lemon Builders bar, but judging by that I'd say the other flavors are good as well. The lemon isn't as thick and strong of a taste as other protein bars I've had, and is a good switch from the regular forms. It has a different feel when you're eating it, not a bad feel, just different, but I like keeping a box of the lemon around to mix up the typical protein bar experience.

At about 400 calories or so, this bar does the job filling you up. Being in college hitting the cafeteria isn't always an option and this is my go to alternative. I wouldn't call it meal replacement, but if you need something to get good quality stuff in your stomach that isn't fast food or salty chips etc, you can't go wrong with this. Taste isn't very kettle corn like, but it is still a great taste.

As everyone else has said, these are a fantastic gel alternative, and I've taken this with me along with gel just to switch things up. Its a fun little game, reach in my jersey pocket and see what I grab first. I've only had strawberry, but the taste of those are great. My girlfriend has had the black cherry and said its fantastic as well. Consistency is a good chewiness, but you do need a bit of water to get it down without a few coughs. No more than required by gel though.

I have had these glasses for 7 years, and between lifeguarding, running, biking, hanging out on the beach, anywhere you go these things are good. They also have a frame that is super lightweight, but strong as can be. They've fallen from being held in my helmet a few times while mountain biking and I ran over them, not a thing wrong with them. I also really like how there are no metal hinges to allow for any rust to ruin them. These things have been all over the place with me and haven't skipped a beat.

Sure, the energy part gives you a kick, but when you first try the Honey Stinger gel (gold flavor) for the first time, if you've been raised on the typical gels, this stuff is surprising. Its a little thicker than others I've used such as Gu an PowerGel, but its flavor is a welcome relief. The Gold flavor tastes just like pure honey.

White lightning makes a 3 different types of lube, Clean ride, Epic ride, and I think Wet ride, all with difference characteristics. Sadly RealCyclist only carries Clean ride, but at places like REI you can get all 3. On the back of the bottles they state what lube is best for what.
Edit: I picked up the Clean ride wax based lube a few weeks ago, and I really like it. The wax aspect to it do a good job of preventing too much crap from getting on your drivetrain, and then when its time to clean it off, most gunk is stuck to the waxy part and comes right off with a brush.

I'm a huge fan of bibs, but these normal tights are great. It has the Pearl Izumi Elite chamois in it which is spectacularly comfortable. Very warm as well, the fleecy type inside of the tights are sure to keep the cold out, and the zipper bottoms really help get them off, or just for a slight bit of venting post-ride.

I can't really explain how particularly well the helmet works, as I've kept myself upright on the bike, but the fit is just fine, and the vents keep my head cool. Only issue is the tightening mech on the back seemed to get stuck, I never adjust it, so it's not really a problem, but I feel like it could get much more annoying if I had to.

These were my second pair of clipless (still getting used to the naming scheme of pedals) and these were a fantastic upgrade. I moved up from Crank Bros. candy, and the larger platform makes things just seem more substantial, from when I decide to stand up and hammer it, or just clipping in. I would definitely suggest these.

First thing I noticed when putting this bib on was the different fit of the straps. They're very wide set, and the top of the short is quite low which I was worried about for when I actually go on the bike. I had no issues with it digging into me, or the top attachment feeling weird, and I absolutely loved the Chamois. It was quite stiff feeling compared to my Pearl Izumi, but is awesome during rides.

Size wise i'm 5'10 175lbs wear a 32/32, I ordered a large

These were my first pair of bibs, and these have made me never want to go back to just shorts. The chamois is wonderful, even on the longest of rides, and I've had no issues with chafing with the suspenders. Size wise, I purchased a M and I'm 5'10 175lbs and I wear a 32/32. Fits perfectly even with what my girlfriend calls "Linebacker legs".

Edit: After a good 6 months or so of use, the chamois still smells new after washing and has retained no stink whatsoever. Sadly my Castelli bibs can't say the same.
