These are my favorite casual bike shoe. The best parts: SPD compatibility, wide toe box, style that doesn't scream 'LOOK AT ME I'M A BIKE SHOE'.

The sole isn't very lugged/agressive so I wouldn't recommend these for trail shoes, but if you want something that you can walk around in after the ride then these are an excellent choice.

The exterior has held up well to weather and some trail usage, they seems to breath well and I've comfortably worn them all summer in to the shoulder season's upper 30's (with good socks). There are nice little features like elastic straps to hold the laces that really make this a great shoe.

These are great for cool and wet riding. The design and material does a good job keeping out moisture and the Vibram sole has nice grip. While I wouldn't suggest using them much below the mid 20's without some serious sock or toe warmer game they're great shoes for the shoulder seasons or mild winter weather. I did find the sizing to run just a little small, even compared to other Giros. SPD compatibility is good and has generous channels, though they can get a little clogged up in serious snow or mud.

I've used this remote on a variety of dropper posts; KS, Giant, Fox, random no name chinese OEM. This makes every post better. The ergonomics are spot on, the adjustability is superb, and the different mounting options handy. This lever is super smooth and really improves the feel and ease of actuation for any dropper.

This tool isn't that complicated, you have a threaded rod and some stepped end pieces with all the common bike axle diameters, but the fit an finish is excellent. I use this to help build and true a variety of wheels without having to track down the specific axle for each hub or having to mess with clamping and scratching the various hub end caps.

One thing to note is that the adapter adds more width than just using the axles out of a frame. If you're using this tool in an older Park Tools TS2 or similar stand you might run into size issues for fatbike and boost hubs, but this can be remedied using something like Park's TS-2EXT.2. This isn't a fault of the tool, so no stars off what's an otherwise simple functional design.
