Size Purchased: Medium

Finding socks that keep our feet dry, comfortable, and happy can be quite challenging with all the socks on the market today. That said, these socks are simply amazing and my new go-to standard! I have worn socks from Capo, Swiftwick, Castellig and more. These socks are as good and better than many of the socks I have worn in the past. I love how I don't feel the seem, don't feel like I'm pulling on a recovery sock, and have kept my feet dry in the dry Utah heat.
If you're looking to try some new socks, get them and share your thoughts with the rest of us.
For size reference, I wear a 43.5 in Sidi shoes and a 10.5 in normal running shoes and purchased a medium size sock.

I love carbon bars! But... they are expensive to replace in the event of an accident.
Enter the 3T Ergosum for my son's new road bike. I sure would love to save another 50g for him, but at this time it is more important to me financially to get him a great bar that he can ride with till he is 18 or saves his own hard earned cash for a set of carbon bars.
As Jonny said below, 3T has been making bars for years, and I recall installing them as a kid in the shop back in the late 80s. I've always been a huge fan, and the fit and finish is second to none.
The only thing I wish these bars had was a channel to help mold the cables into the handlebar. Other than that, the markings on the bar to align the height of the brakes/shifters is accurate and well thought out.
I also prefer the shorter drop for him as he's not super big in the shoulders and doesn't require a deeper drop, as someone who needs more room for sprinting.
If you have questions on these 3T bars or other gear please reach out to me.

This is an easy no brainer when comparing to a stock Shimano BB. This BB is worth the extra $50 to upgrade, and you can thank me later.
I installed this in my Storck Aernario Platinum and was happy with how easy it went it, and the fact that it wasn't a PF style BB (prone to creaking). The threaded option of this BB keeps the creaking out of my mind, that is notorious with pressfit style frames. If you're tired of hearing the groaning and creaking, this is what you want!
Everything is pretty much sealed off from the elements and the ABEC-3 bearings are a nice upgrade over stock Shimano and SRAM bb choices. Toss in the lifetime-warranty and it is money well spent!
Question on this BB or others, feel free to reach out.

Picked these tires up for my son to use for spring seasonal training and these tires are awesome! I wasn't as concerned about durability as he's around 135lbs, but more about the performance of the tire. Normally he is on the Vittoria Corsa G Plus tire, but this tire provides a little more durability, while still maintaining the great feel of the Corsa G Plus.
If you haven't tried the new Vittoria Tires with graphene compound, the ride is amazingly supple and the grip inspires confidence on all ability levels.
Feel free to reach out to me if you have questions about Vittoria tires or other.

All I use is Lizard Skin DSP tape, as it keeps my hands on the bar in the sun and rain. Doesn't matter if my hands get sweaty or I am caught in a rain storm. This tape works and the colors are awesome!
I got this particular tape for my son's road bike for racing, as normally I go with the 2.5mm tape for a little added comfort.
Get some. Your hands will thank you!

I was a bit skeptical of leaving my tried and true Elite cages, but after having installed and used these new beauties, those concerns are no more!
The cages do an excellent job of keeping the bottle where it needs to be (not ejecting over railroad tracks), and sliding the bottle back in is a breeze!
I appreciate the finish of these cages in the flat black and gloss sections as it gives the cage some character.
If you have questions on these cages or other Black Inc. gear please reach out to me directly anytime.

Picked this TNF hoodie to add to the ever growing collection and I am glad I did. It's not as heavy as others, but when lounging around or looking for something to wear during the fall and late winter, this is a great hoodie for temps in the 40s and 50s. The fit on this is true to size and maybe even a touch on the larger side, but allows for a t-shirt underneath if needed.

I was a bit skeptical buying such an expensive hoodie, but again the old saying rings true, you get what you pay for!
This is now my favorite hoodie and resides at the top of my hoodie drawer. The quality of the fabric is second to none, the fit is on point, and the color looks amazing! I can't stop raving about this with my friends, who have also now picked up a few for themselves. It's nice not always having to put a jacket on to go outside in the winter, and this has kept me warm even with temps in the 30s.
Do yourself a favor, get this and pull it over!

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I got a pair of these bibs for my son, and really like the overall construction and quality of material used in these shorts. Unfortunately I had to return them as they didn't quite fit my son. I purchased a size small as that is what he normally wears, as he is 5'9" and 135lbs, but the shoulders straps are really designed for someone around 5'6" and there was no way he'd be comfortable wearing them as they were stretched to the max.
Will update once I get some mediums for him, just hope they aren't too loose on the lower half.

I got this jacket as a gift for my father, and he's already told me how happy he is with this jacket. He has used it a handful of times and tells me that he doesn't need to layer up as much now with this insulated jacket. I got him a size large, and he's 5'10" and around 170lbs. He could get away with a medium, but it may be more restrictive in the shoulders/chest area if wearing anything thicker than a t-shirt.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been running ESI grips for years, and they are my go to grips for my bikes and my boys bikes. Every time I get to install a new set, I am reminded at how great they look, but just how happy I am to wrap my hands around them. I like how they offer three sizes, and I've used each and every one of them and will continue to do so for many years to come.
As for installation, just be liberal with the IPA and use gloves or a towel to assist slide them on.
Grab a pair or three and add some color to your bike and comfort for your hands.
Questions on ESI grips or other accessories, components please reach out.

This riser block from Cycleops is hands down my favorite block to use to help stabilize the bike, or add more resistance to my workout. I like how these blocks can be stacked to increase the resistance and change the complexity of the ride.
The three sides offer varying degrees of resistance, or you can add a second block to really make things interesting!
If you have questions on this block, trainers or other accessories, please feel free to reach out to me.

I bought a few pairs of Stance socks a few weeks ago and since then have decided to buy more and add variety to my sock collect. You can't go wrong with any of the Stance socks, they are fit and feel amazing! Don't buy just one pair, take it from me and buy many!

ENVE All Day!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been riding these wheels for the past 6 months on my Santa Cruz Hightower, and could not be any happier!
The wheels have done everything I have asked of them, and have yet to flinch! I have used them when riding the lifts at Deer Valley and all-around XC riding. I keep them air up to 22-24lbs front and 24-25lbs in the rear, and no pinch flats, no rim dings, or burps after a full-season of riding.
The only issue I had was the rim tape pre-installed from ENVE wasn't allowing the tire to maintain air pressure. I ended having to rip off that tape and replace it with some Stan's tape to seal the rim. Aside from that the wheels have performed better than any expectations I had of them.
If you are looking to make a change, look at installing a set of ENVE wheels and changing the ride for the better!
Please reach out with any questions you have about any ENVE products.
