NOLACyclist's Bio

Not much to say, really. I am constantly out and about in New Orleans, the greatest city on Earth. When not in the city, Im out roaming the swamps locally or mountains and forests in The Ozarks, WY, MT, and ME.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Worn mine since Oct 2016 almost daily. It is a great helmet. Breathes well. Light enough to not be aware of it. great retention system. Only issue is that the little honeycomb things are a pain to clean muddy road muck out of after rain rides. (Mine is the black matte one, so the dirt is super obvious if I don't clean it)

I bought size Medium bc that's what I run for warm weather gloves. They seem a little snug. I live in New Orleans, so cold weather gear isn't my forte. But, I am a cold weather wuss. We New Orleaneans are a tropical people. So, it went went 40* and below, I wore these this past winter all total for all probably 24 days that we got that cold. They kept my hands toasty. But, sweaty. I don't think its lack or breathability. I think its that these are just made for folks a little farther up north. I'll keep using them though. Id rather sweat than freeze.

I use mine with an Enve 120mm road stem and a set of their aero bars to hold my Garmin 820. No rotation, no rattle, nothing. Fits the Garmin 820 with silicone case perfectly at the bottom so it is inline with the rest of the cockpit.

stiff as can be and great shoes. but, as others have said they are heavy. (But, for a cyclist, so am I, so...) And, I think theyre a bit big. Not in length, but around. I have to cinch them all the way down til the ratchet strap has no more clicks to go, or I have to wear two pair of socks.

great glove. but, they have a ton of gel in them. a bit too much even. Louisiana roads suck, but its not the Paris Roubaix cobbles. I feel like I could get away with less gel. But, they work as they are supposed to. My first pair had a rip in the stitching. One call to Giro, and they sent out a new pair that arrived in a few days. Great customer service.

Ive got a few hundred miles in these now and LOVE them. They came with a few different arch inserts, so that helped customize them to my feet. Low stack height. Easy to walk in with Keo cleats. Very comfortable. Sizing is spot on. Easy to adjust to your feet, even on the bike as the ride goes on. Cant say enough good about these shoes.

great bag! Has mesh compartments of one long side and one end on the inside. has some open pockets on the other long side and a zipper compartment too. shoe compartment is ventilated, but could use some more venting. big enough for all your race stuff, tools, nutrition, helmet, a jacket, and your kit.

I changed out of traditional cork to this stuff about a month ago. I ride daily. Over the last 30 days, Ive gone from complaining about the price to wondering how I got along without it. Super tacky feel, grips well even in rain. Cushy as heck. Very comfortable ride. Dampens some road vibration at the bars. Overall, a great product.
