These gloves are pretty cool. Size-wise, they seem to run a little big, especially in the ring and pinky fingers. I usually wear a medium (Fox mediums fit me perfectly), but the medium in this glove is pretty roomy on me. Other than size, they feel good, and the D3O protection is sweet. Its not really bulky at all, but I tested it by punching some walls, and it felt fantastic, where I'm pretty it would have hurt with just the standard direct-inject knuckle armor most gloves have.

pretty nice

Only one ride so far, but so far these seem nice! Not a ton of protection, but way more breathable than most other gloves of this type. Note on sizing though: they definitely fit smaller than fox gloves. Fox mediums fit me well, but these in medium are a little on the small side.

Got the banana flavor, and it's actually pretty good. Still mostly tastes like honey, but with a hint of banana. A lot like banana runts actually. I was hoping these would give me a huge turbo boost of energy after eating one, but so far I haven't really been able to tell much of a difference. Then again, I'm not racing or anything. I'm sure it must do something, right?

When I got these, they were not quite what I was expecting. I'm not sure why this color is listed on this page, but the Sky Blue/Smoke Fototec color is actually NOT polarized. Also, based on the picture above, I was expecting the lenses to be clear or almost clear at their lightest. They're not. At their lightest, they are still definitely "sunglasses". When I first got them, I kept moving them between direct sunlight and total darkness to try and see how much they change, and for a while I couldnt tell whether they were changing at all. I was a little annoyed at first, but I have to say, these glasses have grown on me. They're not Oakleys, for sure. Oakley Transitions go all the way from clear to quite dark. But these don't have an Oakley price tag, either. The lenses do change, just not a ton. Still, they change pretty quick and it does help.

I really like this pump. It's tiny - probably about as big as most CO2 inflators. It takes a lot longer to pump up than a CO2 pump, but you never need to worry about buying more cartridges for it, or how much air is left in your cartridge. If you don't get flats very often, this is a great little pump to toss in your pack and forget about - until you do get a flat. I've had mine for about 3 years now, and it still works just fine. Gunk doesn't seem to build up in it at all, like it does with some other mini pumps. If you just want something small that won't weigh you down, but will keep you from having to carry your bike home, this is it.
