I've been a loyal Cycleops Power Meter customer for years. I bought this new Joule computer because I thought it would provide the same type of data fields and functionality that the former Joule 2.0 did - not the case. This thing is vastly inferior to just about any power meter head unit I've ever used. The configuration capabilities are very limited. The display is insanely confusing with data elements that are all different sizes and fonts making it very hard to read and understand. I returned this item and bought the Joule GPS which is similar to the Joule 2.0...although it's a pretty expensive upgrade. I'd recommend the Joule GPS or Garmin 500.
The Conti Race 700 Light tube is one of the most reliable lightweight tubes available. You can train and race on them with confidence. And this is a great price from Realcyclist.
During five years of training for Ironman triathlon races I've used dozens of gels, sports drinks and other fueling products. EFS Liquid Shot is probably the best I've have ever used. It's technically NOT a gel. The consistency is thinner which helps it be consumed and absorbed faster. The Vanilla taste is great and it's packed with tons of calories and electrolytes to help you keep moving. I use EFS Liquid Shot during all of my long training sessions as well as during 70.3 and Ironman triathlon races. It's easy to carry, the flask is efficient and quick to open and it tastes better than any liquid fuel on the market.
I was advised by several BC.com "experts" to get this ski. I haven't skied much on fatter skis before and was assured by them that this would be a good transition ski and would work well All Mountain. I found them sluggish, slow and not very responsive to quick maneuvers. I took them through some stashes of powder here and there and thought they floated well but again felt like they were hard to turn and somewhat unresponsive. I was bummed because I really wanted to like this ski. In the end BC.com took care of me and made it right. I give two stars for the cool graphics and the outstanding customer service from BC.com. But the actual product itself was really disappointing.
I have average size feet and these boots were very tight and cramped in the toe box. Very uncomfortable. Super narrow. The look is weak too. Feet were cold too. Took them back.
22 or 25? I am a male, 6'0" and 160 lbs. I like to run the descents and on the flats. Terrain will vary some but for the majority of my trekking I'll be on the trail. Which size?
This is a great piece esp if you are an athletic/triathlete build like me. I am 6 feet and 160 lbs with longer than average arms. A Medium was spot on with the arm length. Just right. The torso length and fit around the middle is also perfect. Not too long and not too loose.
