thanks for the answer - are these going to help for the in-between steep terrain - i.e. where it gets a little steep for skinning, but using actual crampons adds a bit of time and effort I'd rather skip if possible? Or if it's too steep for skinning, it's probably too steep for these? I'm trying to figure if these are worth it for the couple of times a year I encounter that kind of terrain where I am (the east).

What's the downside of going really wide with these? I've never used ski crampons but have been a few places lately where they seemed like the would have helped. Current skis are around 88mm waist, but I would like to get some fatter skis in the future. What's the downside of using the 130mm crampon on 88mm skis for the present time?

I have no idea if I can actually tell the difference with any of my seatposts, but this one looks really sweet and is american made, which I really like. It seems light but solid.

Also, I was pleased to discover that the bag it comes in is pretty much perfect for a carrying an avalanche probe, which is kind of handy and makes stuffing it in my backpack a little easier. Obviously that has nothing to do with cycling, but thought I'd share it if anyone was wondering what to do with that little bag.

I just went through this myself. Assuming I got it right (with the help of the folks here - worth calling to figure this stuff out) it's a 1 1/8 integrated headset. The complete build they offered for awhile was specced with an FSA Orbit IS-2. I just got a Cane Creek 110 integrated tall rise (110.IS41 Tall Cover Complete) - the cheaper Cane Creek 40 integrated looks like it would work too - (40.IS38 Tall Cover Complete). Ritchey WCS Logic Zero Carbon Fiber Drop-In Headset available here should work too. Get a problem solvers cantilever cable hanger too (or at least that's what I was told). Hope this info isn't wrong or useless. Wouldn't be the first time.

I haven't built this up yet, so this 'review'" is obviously preliminary, but this frame looks better in person than it does on the website photos. It just has the look of a quality bike - everything is finished nicely, and I have to say the lack of graphics looks pretty awesome. It just feels like a nice bike. The folks at realcyclist, particularly Zach, have been very helpful in putting together the rest of the parts I needed for this. I can't wait to ride this.

What's the difference between these and the TLT Vertical ST? I'm trying to figure out if it's worth dropping the extra cash for these. I've been using Fritschis for the last five years, but have finally accepted that most of my touring involves long slogs for short rides so want to go to a much lighter set-up with some softer boots (currently older dark grey Scarpa Tornados). Any suggestions on these bindings or boots is appreciated. Thanks

I'm 6ft, 185lbs - the large is a perfect fit for cycling. Event is great - I'd just recommend being very careful if you try to iron it to restore water repellency - I melted some event pants that way. Jacket is a nice design, though, and the pocket is great because there's no worry about anything bouncing out of it since it zips. If you care about being seen by cars, the color is pretty muted, but if you're ok with the color the jacket is totally great.
