Familiarity: I've used it several times

A solid lock with hardened steel links has kept my bike safe so far. My favorite feature is the 32" circumference that fits perfectly around my waist with no bounce... as long as I don't loose the key.

Adding this review to subsidize the pictures below and add a rating to offset the negative reviews below. This is a large case which keeps the bike safe and makes it easy to pack. Its weight is lighter than your average case, but still in the 25 lb range. Add a 25 lb bike and you're right at most airline weight limits- which is pretty normal for a hard case. Personally I prefer a soft case, but this is my favorite hard case I've seen.

Some Photos

This case is fairly large, but one of the most secure and probably the easiest I've seen to pack. Mount the fork, attach the bottom bracket, put the wheels in bags, and then remove the handlebar. Very easy with plenty of space. Pictures below are with a Small 29er MTB but as you can see there's plenty of room for much more bike.

If you have any more questions you can reach me at 801-736-6396 ext 5630 or adewitt@backcountry.com

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I picked this Jersey up for Hot summers here in Utah and couldn't be happier. Its one of the thinnest, lightest, and most breathable jerseys I've ever felt. Compared to some of the other De Marchi jerseys, its a bit more stretchy and less compressive than the others, mainly because of the super thin materials- Most likely the reason for the review/comment below. As far as quality, i prefer the Demarchi tops over even Assos. Fit is normal, not Euro.

Bottom Line- If its hot out, there's not a better choice.

medium frame - 2.42lb (1,102g)

This is still one of the best/fastest frames I've ever ridden. Its as smooth and nimble as a hardtail 29er can get. I've owned superflys, Niners, and a number of FS bikes and I have to say this is a race winning machine on most courses. If you have any questions or would like help with a build I'd be happy to help. adewitt@competitivecyclist.com or 801-736-6396 ext 5630

Tim,

The only real difference in womens bikes is the color and size of grips. Some companies poorly designed smaller bikes so had to redesign for smaller riders and typically call these women's bikes. Lots of study on body proportions have shown 0 difference in male vs female so your daughter should be fine if we pick out the right size for her.
