I ordered a large (5' 10" 170lbs) at the beginning of the season and had to take the sweater off the first day. Partnered with a shell, a base layer and a t-shirt this thing has kept me warm down to -15 degrees. Even chilling on the lift.I like the style of the sweater, but I would mainly use it for layering. Go with a Luft Down Puffy if you want to look cool on Main St. For a synthetic layer, the Luft synthetic is great quality and hard to beat for the price. Just remember that Stoic gear fits a little snug, so size up.

I've been rocking Shimano SPD cleats since I bought my very first pair of m747 pedals. I just bought my 6th pair of these cleats and they still rock. I mostly ride XC and I use the SH56 because I like the ability to quickly pop the cleat out by pulling my heel up and out. The cleats last forever, clip in easily even when jammed with a lot of mud and are super easy to adjust. I do recommend that anyone buying these try to keep the bolts cleaned out fairly regularly. If they get packed with pebbles and dirt they can be really hard to remove.

After running across several riders with broken chains in the last few weeks I decided that I needed to carry a chain tool with me, but I didn't want the bulk of a stand alone pin pusher. So I replaced my old Topeak Hummer tool (had lost half the chain tool) with the Crank Bros Multi 17 and I love it. It's the price is right, it's compact and all the allen keys are the right length to reach the bolts I usually need to mess with on rides.

I ordered this tire because I shredded my front throwing my bike across a stream and needed a new one in short order. I was a little bit leery of the weight, but the 2.2 is a lot lighter than the 2.4 and not too much heavier than the Crossmark I shredded. Once I got the tire I noticed a few things right away. First, there's no way the 2.2 is actually a 2.2. In comparison to the 2.1 Maxxis Crossmark on my back wheel it looks more like a 2.0 or even a 1.95. Thus the weight difference. Secondly, it doesn't have great air volume. So if you're running rigid or tubeless, think again. Finally, you won't seat this thing tubeless without an air compressor. I wasted 30 minutes of my life trying so that you wouldn't have to. Because that's just the kind of guy I am. Make plans to have access to a compressor when it arrives.

However, on the trail it was a whole different story. I was really impressed with the performance of the tire on dry, rocks, sand and a few soft spots. It doesn't feel overly heavy, and the big knobs don't seem to be slowing it down. As soon as I went around the first sandy corner I had instant confidence in this tire's cornering abilities. So despite the shortcomings of Continental's sizing department, I was really pleased with the overall performance of the tire and I highly recommend it for your big wheels. Just buy the 2.4.

First of all, these aren't really shoe covers, at least not until you cut a big hole in the bottom for your cleats. I my feet still got really cold on the first ride and it didn't feel like they stopped the wind at all. As a second sock layer (which Capo says they also are) they weren't much better. I'd spend the extra dollars to get the PI Cyclones if you plan to ride in cold weather.

I love the adjustment on this post. Installation was a breeze compared to the U.S.E. post I was running before. The only weird thing was that the clamp doesn't completely surround the oval rails on my Selle saddle. However, I clamped it down pretty tight and I didn't have any slippage or movement. Great post and a decent weight for the money.
