Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These cookies taste great and are very easy to make, just have to add your own ingredients. I opted for chocolate chip cookies and they do taste very good. However, given the ingredients are not organic, nor are they non-GMO, I have a problem supporting companies and farms that use GMO products, pesticides, etc.

?but when I do, I use Assos.

I would say on average my taint is more sensitive than most. So if I'm going out for a century or all day ride, I take extra precautions by putting some of this stuff to reduce the friction. I invest in shorts with a good chamois and find the Assos chamois cream makes the ride a bit more comfortable.

I've never had an allergic reaction, but after reading one of the other reviews I may pass on using chamois cream in the future do reduce the amount of chemicals put on my skin.

Kudos to Honey Stinger for making USDA Organic products such as this energy gel! Have you looked at the crappy ingredients that are in Gu, Hammer, Powerbar, and other products? I've been using Honey Stinger products for my on the bike food and have never had any problems with stomach issues or taste - and this gel is by far the best I've tried.

I have gone to a strict only USDA organic and Non GMO certified diet and the results are astounding - more energy, faster recovery, better overall mood, and pretty much a happier person. I'm amazed how much of a difference the food we put in our bodies makes!

I have gone to a struck USDA organic and Non GMO diet and have noticed huge differences in my life. I have more energy that stays constant through the day, I recover more quickly, and am generally in a better mood. When it comes to what to eat on the bike, I mainly stick with Honey Stinger (USDA Organic) and Skratch Labs products. I'm amazed at all the crap that is out there that elite athletes put in their bodies without paying attention to the ingredients!

I enjoy the Skratch Labs Daily Electrolyte Drink Mix on days when I'm traveling or not exercising and want something other than water. So far I've tried the lemons and limes and enjoy that flavor, but will branch out and try the raspberries soon. I refuse to poison my body with soda, Gatorade, or other crap that is being sold out there.

I have used these brake pads exclusively on my sram red brakes. I pretty much get 1 season, ~ 3,500 miles out of each set of pads. They are easy to swap out.

I tend to be a maintenance freak with my bike and keep things very clean and well lubed. About once a month I clean the brake pads with rubbing alcohol and make sure there are no pieces of metal embedded in the pads. About halfway through the season I will rotate the front pads to the rear, and rear pads to the front to get more life out of them.

Most of my rides involve long climbs (2-3 hours up) and then turn around and come down. I also ride in a dry, high desert climate and only ride in rainy conditions in the event I am stuck out in a passing shower. I feel these brake pads modulate well and do their job - if there is something that does a better job out there, I have not used it yet.

Picked up this tire in 25 mm width for winter training. The County I live is does a terrible job picking up and sweeping the sand and gravel they out down during snap storms. So instead of dodging this material when it ends up on the shoulders, I picked up these durable tires so I can ride through it.

I experimented with the 25 mm width and confess I notice a difference in comfort and traction. I herniated a disc in my lower back 3 years ago and any advantage I can get in comfort without losing marks in looks (ie having to have some high rise stem of obnoxiously padded saddle) is great for me. I am going to use 25 mm tires when I buy my summer tires.

As always timely shipping and great service from Competitive Cyclist.

Debated between the Thermoflex and Nanoflex leg warmers and went with the Thermos. First on size I went with XL which is the same size I wear in Castelli bibshorts, tights, and jerseys. I am 6'4" and 190 lbs. I have a 34" inseam and the warmers are perfect in length. I have used these in 40 - 58 degree rides and they have provided the warmth I've needed. I have 1 pair of tights and 1 pair of knickers. So the leg warmers give me another option on colder days.

The warmers have grippers on the inside of the top and I did not experience any slippage. I would highly recommend these for someone searching for leg warmers. In conclusion they are comfy and I don't notice them when riding.
