Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Though these babies aren't light weight and don't like to go up hill very much, they make up for it on the down. All of a sudden you jsut can't get the front to let go. Just imagine the joy you'll experience while your tire is saying "I can't quit you" to the dirt. Its a wonderful experience. Even better, you don't have to worry about ripping this tire off your rim, its on there and isn't going anywhere.

Fit: True to size

From what I've heard from friends in the nursing profession the most common ER visit from mountain biking is for lacerations on the elbow. These are a great answer to that problem. The pads are breathable and don't restrict movement while wearing them. I've found myself even wearing the pads while pedaling up since the fabric and even the padded area breathes well. They can also take an impact well, I went down in a rock garden first thing with them and they not only protected my skin, but they came out looking pretty as well.

The highlight of these wheels is the width of the rim. With the 29mm internal width these help get tires to sit with a nice wide profile and increase the performance of the tires allowing you to run a slightly lower pressure and increase your grip. More rubber down is just better. The Hubs aren't anything special, but you're buying a sub $1000 wheels set so you can't expect perfection all the way around. So far the hubs have performed adequately and the maintenance appears to be pretty standard. I'd recommend these to others looking to get performance on a budget.

After many months of using my old cleats and wearing them down from clicking in, hiking around to scout lines, or jsut hanging in the parking lot it was time to replace my old cleats. These things happen, luckily some bike parts aren't as expensive as others. I also like to keep an entire cleat/bolt/slider set up in my pack on rides, if you lose a bolt it can end a ride in a really unfortunate yet preventable way.

These pads are awesome for rough trail riding. Easy to pedal in if you so choose and they breathe remarkably well for a set of knee pads. Having taken a couple falls on them I've been pleased with their function in easing the damage and their durability. Highly recommend for those riding trail bikes. Not a great downhill pad, but that's not what they were made for.
