These pedals give the perfect combination of light-weight and power transfer. The platform is wide enough that any more would feel bulky but light enough that you don't even notice them. I ride the 'Ulteam' version with the Ti axle but for those not looking to shave every gram these are a good compromise. Time supposedly had pedal issues a few years back but even after trying to recreate those results and break these I haven't had any luck (thankfully)

I upgraded to this bottom bracket when my 7900 was on its last legs and was amazed at the difference. One note: be VERY careful which one you order, the 8000 is compatible with Shimano systems and FSA NON-'light' systems. Get the 8200 for the FSA-light series. That being said, I noticed a significant difference between the two and noticed that when on the stand the pedals continued to turn after 'coasting'. Great product but expensive

These are by far the lightest bars I've used and the ones I've been the happiest with. True, they are expensive and if you crash them they're dunzo but they provide an incredibly comfortable ride. The curve of the bar was the perfect mix between ergo and classic and I really liked the way I wasn't always committed to one hand position. The only reason for the 4/5 rating is the stiffness. In my opinion, Easton's Intelligent Flex is just an excuse for sacrificing stiffness for weight. If you're a sprinter, not you're bar; climbers like me: perfect

Seriously, you can't beat this seatpost without paying another $200 for some boutique POS. True, it's not carbon so you don't get the look-factor but this is lighter (and much stronger and stiffer) than any of the other carbon posts I've used (FSA, Alpha Q, Specialized). There's absolutely no flex and the micro-adjust head is incredible when it comes to getting the saddle angle just perfect. Oh, and because we're always worried about weight, it came in at over 80 grams lighter than my FSA SLK-Light post
