Chris Sangerwrote a review of DAKINE Trophy Pick-Up Pad on October 1, 2015
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
He'd have this pick up pad.
I moved to SLC this fall after trying to purposefully miss my flight home last winter Fall 2010. Leaving the bird was torture. Especially to go back to Minnesota.
I'm from Milwaukee, I love cycling, beer, paragliding, mountain biking and snowboarding. Hit me up for questions re any of that. What I really love is travel. I don't backpack, instead I scheme to earn airline miles and fly first class around the world, usually the long way. I'm the smelly guy in the first class terminal at Frankfurt.

This thing is a complete blast to ride. Just slack enough to be super confidence inspiring without hampering the ability to climb... too much. Techy climbs won't favor this bike, but I don't favor techy climbs. Point it down hill and grin like an idiot. If I needed to have a one bike quiver (thank god I don't) this would be the one.
Returned it because it runs huge. No size available for the tall lanky guys.
Really liked the cut of this, but the shirt is really tight in the elbows. had to return it before I ripped them open.
was surprised at how cool these are considering the amount of material. great grip, really comfortable.
love it. not too sweet. caffeine and hydration to keep you going.
This stem ends up on every mountain bike I own. It's brilliant. Stiff and light, doesn't slip.
really comfortable, really cool. My new go to for running.
really thin, great for early fall.
They covered my feet and didn't annoy me. Good socks.
" are easily charged with both DC or 12V inputs." Should read " are easily powered with both DC or 12V inputs." You need to plug these lights into *something* for them to work.
The neck was really small for me, I guess I have a big neck? Other than that the jersey is really nice material and fits well.
its comfortable. it's grey. it has a pocket. It's brilliant
"Woah, this guy is classy, and he likes to do mountainy things. What a catch."
Now I don't have to choose which personality I want to present. Brilliant.
It keeps my head warm and tells the world that I ride bikes. That's cool.
great fit, very comfortable and warm. Looks great. A lady at a bar told me so.
Easily digested, though the chocolate flavor is meh. Not offensive but not something I crave. Then again, it's a protein drink so, who cares?
This bike is a rocket. So fast, but still comfortable for the distance. I was hesitant due to the ISP but I accredit it for some of the long distance comfort. The BB shell on this thing is massive and along with the asymmetric chain stays you end up with crazy power transfer. I think the Ferrari comparison is rather apt, especially if you're a fan of top gear- This bike demands to be ridden and is extremely responsive- it's not twitchy but you'll definitely want to pay attention when you're at speed. Plus when you pull up at a stop light everyone in the group ride gets a little jealous. I also love that you don't see this bike very often. Definitely some pride in ownership
