Fill your tires with a couple ounces of this stuff, and you'll be running tubeless in no time at all- just make sure you've got your rims taped!

Less weight, less flats, why would you not want to convert?!

The first couple times of using Stan's, be prepared to get a bit nasty; after that, it's all smooth sailing. Word of advice, spring for the syringe & core remover, as it makes filling/refilling waaaaaaaay easier and cleaner than the pour cup method.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Fit: Runs large

I've been rockin' the slip-on's since I was a wee little lad. Their classic design never lets them go out of style. Just slip'em on, and go! I must say, I do enjoy Era's too, but sometimes I get lazy and don't always feel like messing with laces.

If you've never owned a pair of Vans slip-on's before, they tend to run about a half to full size bigger than other brands, so keep that in mind.

The Flow's have a vent on the top of lenses (see that little slit), the Lo's don't. The Flow's also have anti-fog and Ripel treatments to help keep fog, dirt and grime off the lenses.

When it comes to road tripping, we've got this buddy ridding shotgun with us at all times. Hot or cold, it keeps things a constant temperature (5'ish hours for the longest haul thus far) and it was still steamin' hot when it poured out. Need something to stay cold, it'll do that too, just add ice!

If you're having probs trying to get the pin you just took out of your chain back into the chain, stop right there! Instead, use these break-away pins for eeeease of installation! The push through bit holds your chain together for you... a few turns with the chain tool, a snap with a pair of pliers, you're good to go!

Lake Time!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I received this as a b-day gift and it could not have been better timing! We've drifted into total lake bum mode this summer, so this thing has been seeing a ton of usage from both lake side loungin' and boating.

Stealthy built in bottle opener?! Yeah, it's pretty sweet, shoot, even the strap is cool too. The strap is where it's at when you're hauling a ton of other stuff, as it's one less thing to hold on to and lug.

Cooler benchmarking, drinks have remained cold with ice for around 5 hours or so, and I am sure they woulda stayed cold for even longer, but we were done for the day.

I've got a few other Dakine duffs that I use for snowboarding and biking excursions, and they've all been pretty solid. Here's to hoping this one will be no different!

I wish these came in the old 3 or even 5 piece packs. Ahh well, 2 is fine I suppose. These work great, until you've got that one pin that doesn't want to move. Bend and snap, it's time to replace. If you use your Shimano/Sram "connector" pin when putting a chain back together, you'll cut down on your CT pin snappage.

I've got a couple of these with me in my pack at all times when I am out mountain biking. I've got a 9spd and a 10spd just in case we've got a chain casualty. Nothing beats fixin' a chain on the fly. Now that those 1x11 setups are becoming all the rage, I might as well grab one of those too.
