Phillip, the limit on most co2 dispensers is typically dependent on the CO2 cartridge and not the actual system. According to the Lezyne website (http://www.lezyne.com/co2-systems#panel-5) even a 25g cartridge will only inflate a mountain bike tire to 40psi or 2.8 bar. This would be plenty for a mountain bike tire, 60lbs is way too much for most riding.
Hey Nick, I don't own the mission 75 but I do have an epic 45 and I believe the install is the same. Just thread the straps through from the additional fabric piece as shown in my picture in skiandrock's question above. As far as your inquiry regarding "back support", I can't picture what you are meaning but the suspension system is state of the art and would be most beneficial if left as is. Happy trails!
Thanks for the help Dakka!
Hi Ryan, I too am from IL so I feel your pain. I just moved out to Colorado towards the end of December and anticipate climbing many 14ers this summer. I've tried on both the Expert Gvs and the Trango S Evo and I feel like this is a much superior boot. If you have a chance though try these guys on in a store. I'm normally a size 11 (44.5) but the 45 ended up fitting better for some reason. Although the color scheme is a little crazy, you just can't beat it's flexibility and for climbing 14ers, I don't think you can find a better boot on the market. See you on the trails!
Hey Offyatree, I'd say it's true to size. I wear smalls in everything Arcteryx and it remains true for this jacket. This is my favorite piece in my arsenal and either size you're sure to love it. Think about your uses though, are you going to be climbing with it? If so do you have enough room in the sleeves with the small? If you're going to wear a hoodie with the small, it would make sense to wear the hoodie and go try it on one more time to see if you're still comfortable with the small and the sleeves don't feel bunched. It also wouldn't hurt to bring your shell and see how the whole system feels together. Good luck to you!
I checked with the bc.com gear experts and they confirmed that none are currently on order and they do not have any estimate on when one may come into stock. I also checked the Arc'teryx website and it showed that it could not locate a Teak XXL in any of their online dealers inventories. I'd suggest running a google product search and checking from time to time if you're dead set on the color Teak, otherwise you can get that size in every other color now. Good luck!
I absolutely love these shoes. They breathe well, waterproofing is bomber, and they super comfortable however the sizing chart was a little off. I wear a US men's size 11 so (according to the chart) I ordered a euro 44.5. After wearing them around for a bit I quickly realized they fit much more like US size 10.5. Be careful when you are ordering!
Here's a picture of the bars on my bike.
These handlebars are awesome! K-Force is the name applied to all of FSA's top-end carbon components, and with the K-Force Riser weighing just 188g, it is certainly light. It's made from a mixture of carbon and Kevlar to cope with the demands a handlebar gets put through. The area where the stem clamps in place is reinforced, with a textured finish at the stem and lever clamping areas, to prevent everything rotating when you're dropping into that steep bombhole. Install was easy as pie just check your current stem diameter and don't forget to pick up some FSA installation compound to prevent wear and protect your bars.
This picture gives a size reference for the tool.
This tool is really nice and great for the price. I was looking for something light I could throw in my camelbak and use when issues come along on the trail and this fits the bill. It is only 39g (1.4oz) heavier than the Lezyne CF multi 5 tool and costs $67 less... My only complaint is that the smallest hex did not fit the bolts in my hand grips by a hair but I suppose I could be the one to blame for not buying a tool with more sizes. Good buy!
I ordered the FSA K-force XC handle bars and didn't want the clamp force to be any greater than necessary and this stuff fits the bill. As stated on the packaging, it reduces torque up to 30%, protects from corrosion, and eliminates creaking noises. The compound itself is a red color and looks like strawberry jelly (don't eat it). I had enough to coat all the way around the stem with about 1/4th of a package remaining.
This picture gives you a size reference for the levers and shows you the cover they come with.
These levers are top of the line. They are smaller than the last pair that I had (and broke) and much lighter yet stronger. They come with a neoprene cover to keep them together and work great on stubborn beads. Expensive levers, but they should last forever!
This is a picture of the back of the helmet since I didn't see one posted.
I took a hard spill and broke my last helmet which gave me a great excuse to shell out for this bad boy. I looked at a few Giros but none of them seemed to be reviewed as highly as the Fox Flux so I went ahead and ordered one. After a few days of riding, I can safely say it is a GREAT helmet. The fit, ventilation, head cover, weight, and style are all bomber. My only concern is that while the adjustment in the back looks great, it feels a little sketchy. I'll post a picture of it as you can't see it in any of the product pix. Only time will tell how the helmet holds up but knowing fox's reputation, I'm sure it will be fine. $100 for a great helmet you hardly notice beats the heck out of a few thousand dollars spent on a hospital bill!
These work awesome as a front or rear tire. The other great thing is that not only do they have different widths, but different rubber densities for tweakability. I'm running a 2.35 up front and a 2.1 in the rear with a slightly harder compound. 2.1 sheds mud really well but mind you it is a SMALL 2.1 if not a 1.9-2.0. Still if you're riding a soft-tail, just run a high pressure and the pinching won't be an issue. I haven't yet found a condition that doesn't suit these. I can climb out of saddle on slick hardpack and she still hooks up. A heavier tire that's worth every penny!
Hi there June! Sorry about the late response but I was just reading over and thought I'd still try and help. It appears to be a typo on bc's list as the manufacturers site says 147cm which is roughly 58 inches in circumference(regular)for the hips. All of the 2008 models now have a full zip and the half zip is no longer offered. Happy trails :)
I know you asked for someone who owned it (which I am not) but I did buy one and it's on the way. Personally I'd size down because even if your head will fit in the smaller size it will be nice to ratchet down for fast downhills and such but if it is too loose on your head with the L/XL, you can't do anything about it and it will annoy you. If it doesn't work out for you, huck and roll does offer a 30 day unconditional return policy. Can't beat that! Safe riding!
