Can't take the sole!
3 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've been wearing Sidi's for years and really like them. When I stepped up to these though, the soles were just too stuff and hot spots were really apparent. I also discover a few alignment issues I had after the fact but due to the stiffness, that didn't help. I went back to Genius 5.5 but with some shims and a wedge on one foot. For me, this was the best balance.

Popular for a reason.

I've been using Look pedals for over 15 years. I've never had an issue with them in terms of functional. The only issues I've had with them is the float I needed as I add on the miles. Currently have 2 pairs , Look Keo Max and Keo Max2. I swapped out the spindles on my Keo Max2 and dropped 20 grams each or 40 total.

The red cleats feel great for me now. After my marathon, I really notice I needed more float. Perhaps alignment changes from running.

This is a key piece when you need it and having a quality one is key. I bought several cheapy one before and it almost left me stranded if not for a manual pump! The punction tip is key as my last one broke! The nozzle is also and must offer an easy control and this one has it. I've only used this 2x but so far so good. I'll love it when I hit 4 or more saves..

Oh and besure to have the right Co2 size cartridge for your tire.. 16oz is minimal.

I ridden a lot of Sella and this falls right in line with all of them. Slightly larger and softer than SLR but same shape. I can ride either the SLR or this saddle comfortably. I put a lot more miles on my SLR than this due to SLR is on my road bike. At the same time, those are different kind of miles and in different position.

YES! "RACE WITH WHAT YOU TRAIN WITH"
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I've only taken these on 2 ride but already impressed. I would have thought that the difference in wattage were so small, its negligible, but my dyno tells me otherwise. Aero is just area I feel these wheel are impressive, the others are how smooth they roll and traction due to wider rim. Without really trying, I got my 2nd best time on a downhill section of road I know pretty well. Since this was my first ride on these wheels, I was just feeling them out to test out the limits. Traction was clearly improved and I was very confident on them. Can't wait to ride them more. The quality of these wheels are clearly top notch, the fit, finish is wow...

I read some fitment issues with Sl4 due to the width and the narrow chainstays. It's close on my SL3 but clears so far.

Trainers have come a long way and the fluid resistance unit is key area to why they have improved so much. The wattage and speed charts Kinetic provides is a great reference to have. I always know how out of shape I am! Much quieter than my old magnetic trainer too.. family appreciates that!

I just go this and so far so good. I'm just getting my mount systems squared away so I can record some fun. So far, my mounts and memory cards have been the issues NOT the camera. The battery life seems to be the limiting factor. I think it's hovers around 2 hours plan around that.

The Wifi link to app makes it most helpful to aim, setup and start the camea. So far, I have mounted it on my daughter's bike, my road bike and motorcycle for some test. Great results and ready to use it in some serious action! Will post updates later.

It just works!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Reliable, easy to install and solid modulation. What else can you ask for at this price point? The gun metal anodizing is pretty nice too!
I used these on my 2nd bike, My set of brakes has about 3k miles them and zero issues. I would say, I neglect them more than my main ride so the durable finish is appreciated!

Only minor qualm, the chisel look was unique at first but now it's not so hot.

Simple and works great!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Though design is simple, it's works great and aesthetically pleasing. I've had this cage for 7 years now and I don't recall that it dropped a bottle once(road)! It's also very easy to pull bottle out of the cage as well. Compared to my Specialized carbon cage, these are easier to slide the bottle in and out.

Great post when you need a lot of angle.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use this on a, now ancient, Maverick Matic. The monolink design requires the seat post angle to be very aggressive so the seat post has to compensate for it. Though it's at the limits with the stock bolts, it works out fine. No issue are creaking. Fantastic high quality seat post. With about 2 dozen rides on it, zero issues.

I have a set of these for a few years now and they function fine. Until I tried a pair of Pedro's levers which are even stiffer, I found that these are a little bit on the soft side. Especially when mounting or dismounting a pair of newer GP4000S, I found these a little bit on the soft side.

My go to tire for years now
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Since I switch over to these from Michelins years back, I have never had to look for a replacement. Compared to the numerous Michelins I've tried, Pro's I and II's, Lithions, the GP4000S are better in every way. Every category, rolling, comfort, traction and wear, the GP4k's are better. I've train and race on these without issue. I get about 2k to 3k miles out of them. I am sure YMMV depending on use but do make sure you rotate them. Time does seem to affect these as I notice they dry out. I put only 6k miles on a few sets and very happy.

Issues I've had are the following;
As with any tire, as they get worn, they are prone to puncture.
The sidewall and rubber does get dry around 2k miles.(YMMV)
Sidewall does seem to be the weak area but at around 220 grams, can't have it all.

This replaced a pair of 3T Ergosums. The main difference between these 2 bars are top where the Ergosums are round and these are ovalized with a sweep. I prefer a compact bar since I am not very limber.

I also have a pair of Ritchey Evo bars which are similar to this bar accept the drops are ergonomic and it's slightly deeper.

The finish is very nice and weight very close to spec. My pair weighed in at 228 grams.

The graphics are very small and seemed like an afterthought squeezing it in that small section.

I have about 4k miles on these now and no issues.

Better than Red!

7k+ miles and still going strong. I swapped this out on my Sram Red Group. This cage didn't crack like my Red one did(weld joint).

I did get a warranty replacement for the Red though and it so far it's been good. The weld looks slightly beefier. I have about 1k mikes on the replacement.
