There may be more expensive and "better" wheelsets out there, but I have yet to find anything available that compares to the quality and value of these Stans Arch MK3. The 26mm internal width gives a great tire profile to most tires that aren't of the "plus" variety. The new Neo Hubs are a great improvement over there previous hub design. I would definitely recomend this wheelset for anyone looking to upgrade from there stock wheels while not breaking the bank.
Reliable breaks in all terrain and all weather.
These are the perfect size snack for bike ride or a ski tour. The size fits nicely into a pocket therefore making them easy to access on the go. They offer the perfect amount of sweet and give energy to power through the rest of the adventure.
These were a gift for my daughter and this is what she said about them, "This is the first time i've tried this style and they have disappointed. They are comfortable, supportive, and stylish. I can get away with wearing these to work, I'm a teacher and am on my feet all day, and most shoes are too painful to stand on all day. At the end of the day my feet do not ache and I still get plenty of compliments on style. "
I can't get enough of Birkenstocks in the summertime. I wear mine all the time and my feet couldn't be happier. This particular style takes about a week before they break in, during this process they can feel uncomfortable but it is worth the wait. Once they are broken in the feel like slippers. I recommend buying the cork protector.

This is my third Lezyne floor pump and by far the best that I have gotten. Large volume, I can seat tubeless tires with ease, accurate gauge, it is consistent and doesn't jump around at all, and the ABS 2 chuck is super simple and quick to use. My only complaint is that while the 3" gauge is large and easy to read, it can be tough to dial in air pressures in the mid twenty range. The gauge would be awesome for roadies, not so much for the MTN folk.
Only two years old and on her first hour could balance and steer with ease. A lot of fun and good times coming her way.
I've been looking for the perfect pair of black slip ons for quite sometime. I have really bad bunions and it makes it hard to buy shoes. The typical sneaker wears out in the bunion spot after a couple of wears, these shoes are an exception. They mold to my foot without wearing and look supper cute with a pair of rolled jeans. The back of the shoe allows you to slip them on with wearing out the heel, personally this is what sold me on these shoes. If you're looking for a slip on look no more.
This sweater is the perfect go to outfit. It is comfortable, but flattering. It pairs well with jeans and leggings. The sweater is long enough to cover my mid-section with leggings, but short enough to tucker truck with a pair of skinny jeans. Free People can be difficult to buy online, often their xs is too big and shows too much of my bra to get away with wearing it to work, but this sweater covers and fits perfectly.
This bike is the real deal. When riding it, I often think of my favorite ski, the Moment Bibby. Stay with me here for a second and I'll come back to the bike. The Bibby has developed a somewhat of a cult like following for its ability to charge all over the mountain, while still maintaining a playful feel for every little stash you can find. When riding the 5.5 all that I can think about is that this is "The Bibby of Bikes!" She likes to be ridden hard, but when you do you are rewarded with amazing speed while still being playful off of every trail feature.
I was a bit concerned going with the carbon version vs the Turq build, specifically the Fox performance suspension vs the factory suspension. Thus far I have had no complaints with the performance suspension. I may end up adding a few volume spacers in the rear shock, but that would be the case regardless of the performance/factory.
I also had some concerns with the wheelset that the Carbon comes with. So far the wheelset has held up well: solid, durable and stiff with the boost rear hubs. My only complaint is the lack of engagement in the rear hub, but that is to be expected with a wheelset in this price range.
Overall I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I can't think of any bike that would suit my style of riding. From all day epics, to techy downhills. This thing is a do it all bike.
I purchase a pair of Salomon hiking boots for my wife and she loves the fit and comfort. Can't wait to break them in.
The Acu Dial is most impressive and works extremely well for a great fit. He loves the color and I love the protection.
I have several pairs of the Kavu leggings and I am never disappointed. The material is thick enough to keep me warm, yet "stretchy" enough to be active in. The leggings look professional, but allow me to be on the move and comfortable. They are also a great weekend travel choice as they don't wrinkle in the a bag, or when sitting in a car. I can wear a small or medium, but prefer the small due to length.
This skirt is full of color and a go to during the long grey days of winter. I pair it with a pair of leggings, a sweater, and winter boots and i'm out the door. The skirt is a perfect fit, not to short or too tight. The variety of colors makes it easy to match with. I've worn it to work and on date night.
The hat is super cute, and the purple color goes with all my jackets, making it a go to choice when i'm heading out the door. The hat does not fit too tight, and it does not itch, however the picture make it look like the hat folds over while sometimes i feel like it stands a bit awkwardly on top. With a little folding this is easily avoidable.
Smart wool socks are the perfect companion for my ski boots, they keep my feet warm while allowing a small amount of material in my ski boot. I haven't found a sock that feels better while on the slopes. Their style also makes them fun to wear under my Sorrels during the day or for apres.
