80DUBBS's Bio

I like cereal and soup, not really into long walks on beach. I prefer just skipping stones. I'm not into pajamas, or flip flops.

Built to last. The kangaroo front pocket is double stitched to prevent ripping from snags. This kind of detail is what makes this hoodie worth the price.
When they say "double" they mean it, this hoodie is seriously warm and might be to heavy for everyday use. This isn't a hoodie for cake eaters with face mullets, this is a hoodie for the working man whom spends his day in the elements.

You get both, left and right socks and they are even labeled "Left" & "Right". I almost returned them, for I don't like to be bossed around by my footwear, but then I realized I could turn them inside out and wear them on the foot of my choosing(smarter than the average bear).
You can't just put these on like normal socks, you gotta' sneak up on em', grab em' by the mouth and shove those little piggies in there. The socks will fight you, but you have to go full on Croc Hunter and show em' who the boss is. Once they're on they ain't going no where(unless you snag them on something and then they completely disintegrate before your eyes).

Taking these monsters off is an adventure un-to-it'self. I got two black eyes from the first time I attempted to remove these constrictors(Side bonus I ran with the trash cat hoard that night). After eventually freeing myself from these socks, I noticed that the socks had mysteriously turned themselves right-side-out again. LEFT & RIGHT looking me in the eyes, and that's when I realized these socks are portal to an alternate universe. A universe of adventure and mystery. Don't let the inhabitants of this universe with their beards, man buns, and ironic sense of humor(which doesn't really qualify as a sense of humor) detour you.
These socks will take you to places you have never been before and to even more places you have been to more times than you can count. These socks require patience and attention to detail, but if you're up to the challenge they will reward you for your efforts.

What I ride: I spend a majority of my time riding down steep rocky terrain. I do theuphill stuff, but just not as often. 2016 Santa Cruz Heckler w/CC DBair CS, Pike 160

Sill level: Intermediate, but aggressive

Technical knowledge: Former jet/helicopter mechanic

My 1st ride and the 4 piston calipers paired up with 200 & 180mm rotors were great. The pistions modultated and gave precise breaking without locking up. 2nd ride same day I noticed that my break levers were touching my other 3 fingers while breaking even though I had the reach adjustment fully extended(away from the handle bars) I'm not talking about break fade due to heat caused by harsh breaking I mean levers toughing grips. I finished the run figuring the breaks need bleeding, so I bleed the breaks. I haven't stopped bleeding the breaks since. The ride starts out with break levers being somewhat firm and by the end of the ride the levers are soft. The calipers work properly, the issue is in the lever pull/throw. I took my bike in to the LBS and they agreed, there is an issue with the break levers/master cylinder. Currently the breaks are being overhauled/replaced under warranty .
I went on the MTB forums and found that I am not the only one experiencing this issue. That being said a friend of mine rides the Guide R and hasn't had a single complaint.
The long and short of it is when the breaks work properly they are amazeballs, that being said when/if they don't work they are truly garbage. Sidenote: I don't see spending the money on the contact point, I didn't realy feel like the adjustment did much, just another variable(eliminate variables increase performance).
Are the breaks worth the gamble? I'd say yes, but barely.

I'm 5'10" 160 lbs and I purchased a large and the size is perfect fit. the bike is 10 foot tall and bullet proof. Plenty of travel front and rear, easy to maintain. Pretty much an all mountain bike that eats up whatever you put in front of. I compared this bike to other bikes that cost $1K and for an extra grand were still on the same level as the Heckler R. The only addition I see myself making in the near future is a dropper post.
I understand their are better bikes out there(you pay through the nose for), but for the price point, performance, and quality/durability of this bike you can't go wrong. If loving this bike is wrong I don't wannabe right! On a +1 note the bike colors are even cool

I have the 2012-13 Contact Pro and I really like them, there were a few design flaws that I didn't like(namely how the heel ladder strap was attached and the toe strap ratchets were at times difficult to release). The 14-15 version eliminated all the design complaints I had, and improved on an already awesome binding. The new mini disc is a good idea, I think it makes the setup a bit easier and provides a bit more precise set up. I also believes it makes the board a more responsive,(when installing use one screw without the washer to attach the binding to the board, then install hardware as normal, work smarter not harder). All the adjustments are simple and straight forward. Highbacks are a good mix of firm and flexible, straps are comfy and have held up well. The EVA base reduces chatter significantly and kinda add to the surfy feel that I love. There are only two complaints that I can see people having with these bindings. 1: The adjustable gas pedal is gone, I know you adjust the heel loop to center your boot in the binding, it's just I like having the adjustment on the footbed. 2: This not my complaint, but one I've heard repeatedly and is a valid but splitting hairs. The paint easily flakes off. OH NO!!! Not the paint!!! What kind of world do we live in?
I don't see how you can go wrong with these bindings. You tear them up, you can rebuild them, the price point is $167.00 as of today. These bindings will last at the least a couple seasons of 50+ days on the mountain. Writing this review I've almost talked myself into buying another pair.
