Only the Best for a Custom Build
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was doing a custom build last year so I decided to get a Thompson Stem and Seat Post , I'm glad I spent a little extra to get the best. Great Steam , Light Weight and Bomb Proof. It also has that classic style! Well Worth it!

Great UpGrade Wheels for Cheap
4 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The best way to make a bike from Good to Great is to upgrade the wheels, I put the Cross Ride on my Townie and it really makes for a great ride. The Light weight and stiffness of these wheels makes the bike roll with ease. Most people don't realize how much better a nice set of wheels improves their ride quality.

Awesome Crank Set
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This came stock on my Cycle Cross Bike , I love this Crank Set! Light weight , stiff and smooth. I have been really happy with the SL-K light , I have put over 5,000 miles on these guys and they are still going strong. I have worked in Bike shops over the years and from time to time we see folks that shear off their metal cranks or bend them. That is not an issue with these cranks , they are on sale now currently for a killer deal. They only weight 921 Grams and the stiff and smooth power of these cranks makes every pedal stoke effortless. They have a little minor wear on them , but are ready for an other 5,000 miles or more.

Quick and Nimble Bike
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

The Razha is a great bike , great ride quality, quick to accelerate and nimble handling. I ride a 54cm in a Specialized , in the Pinarello line up I ride a 52cm , they tend to have a higher bottom bracket and a little longer top tube. The Razha has a real snappy ride , it is quick and smooth. This bike come with Shimano 105 , great bike. Easy to rack up the miles on this one , smooth Carbon ride that accelerates quickly. Only think I would up grade down the road would be a carbon seatpost or handlebars. This bike is a great deal for the price, smooth ride with quality parts.

I've been really Happy with the Smith Vantage. The BOA system makes it easy to adjust for just the right fit. The Vents are easy to open or close while skiing, and it keeps my head safe and warm.

I will more than likely buy a 2nd one , as I have over 300 days skiing on mine and feel it's good to replace helmets from time to time.

This is a good boot , I have put mine through the wringer and it was great. They rode well and took the abuse that I dished out. I put in over 300 days on these boots and would have rode more but the liners were too pack out at that point.

The BOA system is great , I like the Double BOA System too.

Great Boot , I have over 200 Days on these bad boys. I've been really happy with them. I've been a fan of the BOA system for over 5 years, these were the first pair of boots I had with the double BOA system. It's great because you can make the top and the bottom of the boot tighter or looser than each other. I would recommend these boots. Performance , Comfort and Style all rolled into 1.

Pretty Cool Product , works well without restricting movement. It's great for low impact activities or learning how to throw that new snowboard/ski/skate trick. A Little extra cushion when you need it.

This is a fun all around ski , it's fast stable and holds an edge well. It's no wonder that Rossi has been getting lots of props for the Experience line. This Ski is good for someone that wants to ski the front side and venture into the back side from time to time.

I am really happy with the Burton Pipe Gloves, not only do they work well for most warmer days on the mountain, but they also allow me to photograph while skiing and riding. They are my go to glove when photographing winter events such as the X Games and Dew Tour. They are also great for mountain biking too, they have outstanding grip and are fairly rugged.
