I've had a difficult time fitting snow/ski helmets and have tried on many different brands. I have a round profile head (if that helps) and the other brands I tried on were either too large fore/aft while being too tight side/side or they were too short fore/aft and too large side/side.
The Salomon Prophet Air fit nicely all around and has performed well in the park and out of bounds. I paired them with an Oakley Airbrake goggle and have no issues. The padding is soft and comfortable and the air pump system is easy to use.
I purchased the white/grey color and the only issue I've seen is that the shell yellows in color a little bit over time.
The sizing and fit is basically identical to Sidi shoes. The Mavic's are really light weight and don't feel like you're wearing much. Too bad they don't offer a "Mega" width size like Sidi. Hope this helps.
I got this to charge my Garmin Edge GPS for my bike. It barely even added any charge to my gps unit and then wasn't even mildly charged after a day in the sun. I needed to recharge my gps since I was riding in a different country and it failed me.
Sent mine back and think that I'll wait a few years until someone gets it dialed.
Yes, the chain is compatible. The CN 7900 is nickel plated and stronger than the CN-5600.
In the States contact Veltec Boyer Sports for your Sidi needs:
The lock on clamps will prevent your grips from spinning in wet weather. As far as the actual rubber compound that would depend on the temperature, your gloves, and how cold, numb, and wet you are.....and if you can still hold on to the bars.
Yes, a 2.1 will work. You can use almost any width tire if you have the frame clearance.
The Low Normal (RD-M970 SGS) is the "Rapid Ride rear derailleur.
Here is a sizing chart (this is for their jerseys but should be the same for the vests). Hope this helps.
Mavic Jersey Sizing
The Shimano calipers and Avid levers are not compatible.
These are the same shape as the XTRs but a little heavier and less coin. They have adjustments on the levers and the blade has a good shape to it that fits your fingers just right. Easy to bleed too.
This is the most comfortable child carrier backpack I've worn. It has a lot of adjustments to get the fit just right. The seat for the child is nice because it is a seat instead of a hole you drop your child into. Plenty of room to bundle your little one up and still fit (took ours snoeshoeing).
They are the lightest but they sure know how to keep a wheel on your bike. Smooth lever action and easy to use.
Great rear derailleur. Shifts are concise and positive. The spring is harder than Shimano's standard rear derailleurs so it's crisp. Durable too! I can't tell any difference between the XTR and XT shadows on my bikes (other than price and weight).
Love these wheels! It's a toss up between these and the Mavic Crossmax SLRs. These wheels are a little lower profile since they aren't as flashy. Also they are more vertically compliant than the SLRs. Just as stiff though when you're cranking out of the saddle. I chose these over the SLRs for the BC Bike race and was not dissapointed since they were super comfy over the duration of the week.
When I was using dual control I used these. They were flawless in performance and I liked that it didn't take up the entire handlebar to mount everything. Every now and then I would hit my knee on the disc brake res on the underside when my rear wheel would spin on steep climbs out of the saddle. If you like dual control, these are the best.
