Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I wore this helmet for both road and trail. It always kept my head nice and cool when going hard. I believed it saved my life after being hit by a car while traveling at 30mph. Helmet is toast, but my brains are still in my head. I plan to get another one once I'm up and riding again.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I initially gave this product 2 stars. After dealing with the outstanding customer service at Light & Motion, I decided to take it its current rating of 4. After a few emails and sending a video of the light flickering, they were quick to send me a new light free of charge being that it was still under warranty.

First issue I had with this light was the charger. Upon removing the charger from the wall outlet, it broke and almost ripped the wiring apart. I will need a new charger.

Second issue, after riding for about an hour and 30 minutes, pretty serious, rocky downhill, the light began flickering. The battery had been fully charged prior to my ride, and was used on the high setting for maybe 30 minutes. The flickering progressively got worse to where the light no longer worked. The flickering was a lot like a dying strobe light.

Other than the 2 issues I had, when the light was functioning properly, it did illuminate the trail enough for super technical, high speed descents. I never once felt as if I needed more light.

I'm only getting around 600 miles per cassette here in Pisgah National Forest. I've tried replacing chains and chainring after about 300 miles, but doesn't save the cassette. I've figured the cost to run the X01 is just shy of a dollar a mile. Do what you can to stay out of those granny gears, maybe you'll get a little more life out of it.

The 10-42 is about the same range as you get with a 2x10.

It's a great set up, love it, but expensive.

This rack is very easy to install onto my vehicle, also incredibly simple to mount bikes to or remove from.

I was hit by a Mercedes with the rack on. It was at lower speeds, but her vehicle impacted the rack and didn't even come close to my new truck. Her Mercedes barely scuffed the rack but tore her front end up pretty bad. The rack is sold and simple, also protects you from texting motorists that rear end you at red lights.

These shoes have held up much longer than most MTB shoes. They got great traction for the wet rocks and roots you'll encounter in Pisgah North Carolina. They've also got these little inserts you can use if you need more arch support, which seems to help a lot with my plantar fasciitis. On the real steep hike a bike grades though, they will tear your heels up. Love the shoes for riding, but they suck on the steep hike a bike areas.
