Fit: Runs small
Height: 5' 9"
Weight: 165 lbs
Size Purchased: 42.5

I love Sidi shoes. my prior pair was the genius 6 (wide) and put > 10K miles on them. I recently "upgraded" to the wire push and the overall quality is true to the Sidi name. 2 small gripes about fit bring 5-stars down to 4-stars. Of the 2 gripes, the narrow toe box is by far the most important. my toes are not "angled", they are pretty strait across the end of my foot. the toe box on these shoes is not compatible with square toes, with noticeable rubbing on the pinky toe. the 2nd gripe is really just preference. the shoes don't open terribly wide when the cable is fully extended (i'm just being picky on this one, it doesn't impact performance of the shoe). I wear an 8-8.5 in US sizing and purchased the 42.5

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I love the idea of having individual leg power monitoring (and location of power during rotation), but this head-unit is clunky at best and the touchscreen menus are really difficult to use. resolution of the screen is below average as well. i didn't put it through the wringer, so can't comment on durability, I just didn't like the menu structure or the touchscreen. I'm sticking with my Wahoo Elemnt & Bolt

Craft got it right with this base layer. it is surprisingly warm while being thin/light/comfortable. I purchased it on sale with somewhat low expectations, but I am very pleased with it (my favorite base layer now for cool mornings). packs away incredibly easy, but breathes well enough to keep it on when the day warms up a bit. fits true to size (i'm 5/9" and weigh 160-lbs and I bought the medium).

I haven't been this excited about a new pair of shoes since the 2nd grade. my last pair was mavic, which were comfortable and durable, especially for the $120 price point.

these shoes offer great stiffness in the soles, plenty of comfort without extra padding/weight/bulk, and the toe box is wider than average, which allows for a snug fit at pressure points without making your foot feel claustrophobic. while expensive (even when on sale) for most riders, I think these shoes are definitely worth it given superior comfort/performance.

I bought these shoes about a year ago and after 4,500 miles they are holding up great. stiffness is solid, interior is comfortable but not plush, and the materials are holding up well (no excessive wear/tear inside or out despite outdoor punishment). in my opinion they are a very solid shoe for the money, and a no-brainer at the sale price. I wear an 8.5 US, and the 42's fit me perfectly (very snug with only a little room in the toes). My feet are on the narrow side, so if your feet are wide you may need to size up 0.5.

running this PF30 on my Pin Dogma XC with conversion kit #2 for XT 2x crankset. installation was a breeze, even with internal cable routing. conversion kit is simple to fit. BB is silent with very smooth action. this is my first PF30 build, so not sure if alternatives at lower prices are a good option or not. i'm happy with this one for sure, and "if" it ever wears out, maybe i'll try another brand. hopefully i never have to find out.

lemons and limes daily hydration/electrolyte replacement is fantastic. i rarely rave about the taste of mix, but this one is extremely good. it dissolves pretty easily in cold water. riding 4-5 times per week was draining my system, with water and regular diet not replenishing effectively. this mix helps a lot. i alternate between mixture and regular water during the day at work and saw a noticeable difference in the first week of use.

solid pump that does the job well. gauge is decent quality so you know the tire pressure is pretty accurate. compact size is definitely a bonus. only gripe is that there is no clamp to hold the hose to the pump (for storage) when the presta adapter is connected to the end of the hose (the hose screws into the handle which is nifty, but only when the presta adapter is removed). a small gripe i know, but definitely a design oversight. for the money and size, a solid pump.

grabbed these on sale and the value is incredible. i am a huge fan of the sugoi chamois, very comfortable and fits my body well. the material feels solid in this bib, compression without binding, even in the upper portion of the bib the stretch is comfortable. i'm 5'9" with 30" inseam and weigh 165-lbs and the large fits perfectly (consistent with other sugoi bibs i've ordered). i have an older pair of the RPM bibs that cost about the same as the RS pro's, but the quality of the material is night and day different. the RS pro is the way to go for sure.

solid carbon seatpost
4 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Easton comes through with a solid carbon seatpost that does the job well while being tight on weight. the only gripe i have is a small one (worth 1 star), and that is adjusting the seat angle could be a little easier given the positioning of the tension screws (wrench binds against post while trying to tighten/loosen the bolts). overall, a solid post with little weight which makes it a good buy.

Solid, expensive for weight

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Thomson x4 stem is very solid, great materials, great construction, looks good, and has +/-10 which fit my needs perfectly. my only gripe would be that the stem is a little on the heavy side given the price point. there are many alternatives to the Thomson x4 stem that cost 1/2 the price and accomplish the same task, so you are definitely paying extra for the Thomson brand. most of the time I would be bothered by that, but not as much here, given that this stem definitely delivers on its quality focus and offers the steeper angle (-10) that many others don't.

solid fork, trail adjust could be better
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This fork has great compression/feel and does a good job with soaking up the bumps on average XC trail rides. the trail assist is somewhat crude, with bar mounted lever being a bit clumsy to use. friction style shifter would make fine tuning the compression in the fork much easier/achievable while on the trail. overall, I love the feel of the fork, just wish the control was more functional/effective.

these brakes are excellent
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

great value in high-performance brakes. easy bleed procedure makes adjustment a breeze (trimmed front & rear lined for better fit on install), removing any angst from owning hydraulics. stopping power is rock solid. easy set-up and maintenance make these brakes a very solid performance/price solution.

easy set-up and smooth shifting
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

shadow+ is worth every penny. reduced chain slap makes a huge difference. shifting is smooth/effortless, almost as good as Di2. paired with XTR shifters, very little install effort, very little fine tuning (just needed to adjust the distance from the cassette).
