I'm trying to pick my crank and cassette for a new build. Will these work with 10 or 9 speed cassettes? Also, will they work with shimano or SRAM cassettes/cranks?
Great little commuting light. Not bright enough to ride trails with, but definitely bright enough to ride on a road without street lamps. The flashing mode is great for city riding where you don't need the light, but you need to be visible. 2 Brightnesses allow for better visibility (although I almost always use the brightest one... the battery is pretty good so far, so why not?). The USB charging device is a cool addition too. This thing is VERY small. It doesn't look like it in the pictures, but it's only about the size of a US Quarter around and maybe 1.5 CM thick.
I got these because they were cheap and now I'm hooked on capo. The chamois on these is so much more comfortable than the one in my comparable $140 Louis Garneau's it's not even funny. The Louis's chamois is comfy and all, but these... these are unreal. The fit is great (order a size up from your American usual bib size) and the non-standard leg grippers (no rubber!) are fantastic. I ride these shorts whenever I can!
UPDATE: I wrecked in these over the weekend... they stood up pretty well minus one little rip. Any part of my leg not covered by the shorts was torn up pretty bad, but the shorts seem to have kept the rest of my leg from getting bad road rash. They're still wearable, and just as comfy as ever!
