Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: Runs small

I have always dreaded gloves, but I know if I go down, I don't want to be picking road grit out of my hands. Part of the problem with most gloves is the padding, which is always in the wrong place. These don't have padding, which is great. The are slightly tight, but I don't know if I would say they run too small. They do run up on the wrist some. This does not bother me, but something to be aware of. The quality and durability seem to be there.

Bottom line: If you hate padding, buy these gloves. You will not be disappointed.

If you have the hold-up base, then you know what you are buying - room for two more bikes. It does come with lights and a flag. You know, for safety. I have the older version of the hold-up, which comes in gray and the newer add on is compatible. Just a different color. The ability to move the position of the individual bikes side-to-side is a great upgrade and incredibly helpful.

Given that it is Craft, these gloves were probably designed for skiing and they work great for skiing. They were my primary glove this year, good to temps into at least the upper single digits (F). On a bike, however, you don't get the same circulation to your hands so I would not suggest using these when the temps dip well below freezing, but I have had good success with temps just above freeze and up to mid 40s (F). Definitely water resistant, but I am not sure to what extend. I have ridden with them in a decent rain but the rest of me was more wet than my hands. These gloves have been well used and abused this winter and still look like new. Great purchase.

This helmet fits similarly to the ski helmets Smith makes and is just as comfortable. The honeycomb stuff seems weird at first blush but once it is on your head you won't be able to tell. I do with that it was more compatible with Lyzene lights, but I don't do much night riding so it isn't too much of a problem. I have a pair of Pivlock V2 max's that fit perfectly with this helmet, which is a nice bonus.

Hard to say you have put a helmet through the wringer when you have not actually crashed in it, but so far so good.

I cannot say enough good things about these socks. They are durable, comfortable, and classy. They have a very sturdy feel to them and your entire foot and ankle feel supported.

Most socks feel like, well, socks. They may make them out of merino wool or some other fancy material, but the technology feels so far behind other important garments that you wear, like a jersey, and your feet feel like they missing out on the high performance apparel party. These Swiftwick socks feel like a top of the line jersey designed for your feet. You will not be disappointed.

I have ridden an Arione for a few years. I thought I loved it. I could ride all day and not complain too much. I figured it was all part of riding a bike. The Fizik website told me the Arione was right and I did not question it.

Earlier this year, I switched bikes with a friend who had this saddle. I loved it. I was comfortable. I didn't even think about the saddle. As soon as I got home I purchased one. Best decision I have ever made.

The saddle does not allow for you to slide up an down to try and find a comfy position like the Arione, but you don't need to. This saddle cups your sitting region and allows for a large area to disperse your weight eliminating hot spots. It is not so wide that it encourages chub rub (the rubbing of thighs on saddle or other parts of the bike).

If you are like me and think the Arione is good, but you still think about your saddle on longer rides, then the Aliante is worth a try.

these shoes are awesome. ive tried other running shoes, but these are the perfect fit for me. i put well over 350 miles on my first two pairs and had to retire them due to my 200 pounds squishing the crap out of them...and they dry extremely quick. i have run 2 50k bighorn runs in them and splashed through every stream i saw cause it was fun and i didnt even have to worry about my feet
