Here's what others have to say...

This is in my opinion some of the simplest and best bar tape out there. You get a soft texture with ample stretch and length to easily wrap any set of bars. Having a ton of colors is always a nice plus as well.

The texture and feel of this tape is super durable, looks good, and offers great grip even with sweaty palms. Having a variety of colors is also a nice perk. So from that perspective it works wonderfully. I will say that the microtex does not have a lot of stretch to it so I would advise against using it on dirt drops or very wide bars.

This liner does it's job wonderfully. The fit is great, have a good length, do not ride up, and the minimal liner is perfect for all but the longest of rides. The only complaint I have is the seam in the very back. When paired with certain overshorts I own, the seam can chaff in out of the saddle efforts. I have only noticed this with certain short combinations but it is still something worth noting.

The first thing you will notice about these shorts is that they are incredibly thin and light weight. A very nice plus if you do a lot of hot weather riding. Having had a week of 100 plus degree days I have been using these shorts almost exclusively. The shorts have a board short style with many pockets and a drawstring so you do not have to use a belt or worry about velcro straps wearing out over time. The light weight quick dry material is also nice if you decide to hop in some water to cool off quickly.

I think these handlebars are the perfect addition to any XC set up. I think the 710mm width fits the bill nicely and the sweep seems to be just perfect. These bars are great for any situation where you want to get the front end low and keep your center of gravity balanced. One thing I will say is that for more aggressive bikes or riding styles I would definitely steer towards something a bit wider.

These jeans look really nice, and have a couple of nice added features. The gusseted crotch and articulated knees make for a nice durable package that is comfortable to move it. I did find that the cut in the thighs was far too tight to be really comfortable when on a bike though. There were also not any good provisions for preventing the hem from getting caught in the chain. I would wear them as a pair of casual jeans, however, the price is a bit steep considering they did not work great for the intended use.

I had a chance to take one of these out on a demo run and I was really excited to ride what all of the magazines claim to be the ultimate quiver killer. After all the hype that it has been given in the media I could not help but be let down a little bit. The bike rode very well, however, I think I kept expecting more. It did not feel nearly as composed and stable as other bikes I have ridden that are similar, the Santa Cruz Tallboy LT comes to mind. The RIP is a very playful bike and takes a special riding style to get the most out of it. If you like skip across roots rocks and other trail features and ride a lot of jump strewn flow trails this bike is an absolute ripper. Despite various shock adjustments and set ups, the bike just did not offer the amazing all around performance I have heard so many people claim about it. Maybe i just let all of the positive reviews and media attention go to my head and I had built it up too much in my mind.
