You need only one bike. Period.

You need only one mountain bike. You need this bike. I've raced competitively for 12 years. I've ridden for sponsors and have been unsponsored. XC, Short Track, Enduro and Marathon. These days, I own a single bike, and this is it. A recent weekend looked like this:
Friday - Race the Pro fat tire crit, all on city streets, at the Grand Junction Off-Road in Colorado.
Sunday - Race Pro 40 mile XC, on arguably the most technical XC in America at that same race.
Monday - Do lift-access runs for hours at Deer Valley, UT on "Expert only, downhill bike required" trails.

During those three days, I never changed a single thing on the bike aside from dropping the seatpost four inches on Sunday. I ride Enve M60 wheels, Continental X-King 2.4 tires, and XT brakes. The bike weighs in at 24 pounds.

I work at Competitive Cyclist, I race the fast races and I do the fun rides. I could have several bikes and I could have any bike, but this is the one and only.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've had several Rapha bibs in the past. I heard that in the early days (still?) DeMarchi and Rapha were produced in the same factory by the same people. I'd believe it, these are great bibs. Clean, crisp design, quality ditching and materials and the price is amazing. Stock up and go tick off some KOMs.

Fit: True to size

The Bronson pant is at home on the rock, around the camp fire or in the office...any office you'd want to work in at least. Fit is true and construction is great. You see the details inside the pant seams, closures and pockets.

Fit: Runs small

These will get you from plane/train/automobile to the crag, then to the bar without looking out of plus or letting you down. Think of them as Toms that took a lot of creatine. They are sturdy but not bulky or heavy. They look great with paints and shorts. And yes, they are grippy as hell.

They do run small, I typically wear a 9 or 9.5 and in these I kept the 10.0.

Hey Bill, I know Andrew already answered...

Hey Bill, I know Andrew already answered your question, but I just wanted to second it. I own a Hakkalugi disc and have these wheels on it. They are super light, and bomb-proof. I wouldn't get anything else. Most importantly, they look badass and you can run them tubeless

I first thought lace up cycling shoes were a gimmick. And then I tried them, first on the road with the Giro Empire. The fit is far better than anything I've ever had with buckles. Buckles tend to leave a hot spot, even if you don't realize it until after you've tried something else. Full velcro will wear out over time and come loose. Laces are king. No, the laces do not come loose and no they will not get caught in your chain. There is an elastic loop for them on the tongue.

You spent $500 on your jacket, not spend another few to keep it worth that. One 10oz bottle will do about two washing when used as prescribed with a load of 3-4 articles each. It won't get as clean as your Oxy Clean will, but it will make your gear last much longer and behave as it should.

Miir does something good for society, that is the most important thing here. You pay a fair price for a high-quality coffee cup and it helps others, simple as that. The cup is well insulated for both hot and cold drinks. This is my go-to for traveling and camping because it looks and works just like a pint glass. Your coffee stays hot and in the cup with a tightly fit lid, and then when beer:30 rolls around you just leave the top of and you don't look like your drinking beer from a coffee mug. As a bonus it stays cold longer.

- My one con of the mug is that the air hole in the lid is very small, so while it doesn't leak it can easily clog with dry coffee residue and become blocked. Once that happens the java doesn't flow out as easily through the mouth piece. To remedy it, just blow through the hole and you're good to go.

The XLM being re-birthed as a 29er, along with updated geometry and specs, makes me a happy man. I was lucky enough to race this bike recently, along with some high country rides. I came from a Santa Cruz Highball Carbon, so the bar was high. This bike is smooth as silk, typical of Ti but once again proven here. The oversized head tube brings it in touch with the modern era. The bike actually climbs better than my Highball, and is nearly on par on the descents. All around, it's sexy and it performs.

My one complaint is that there was some seat post slippage with both an Easton Carbon and Thomson aluminum post. I hope this can be dialed in, otherwise it's a lovely machine.
