Chase Skidmore's Bio

I'm a Utah native. Mountain biking, climbing, and traveling are three of my passions that consume most of my time. Split boarding is becoming my winter obsession.

Bought this on a whim, and sure am glad I did. I didn't really need another pump, but now I don't really use any other pump. This pump is well constructed, has an amazing and accurate gauge, and I love the release button on back of the valve, to really dial in your pressure needs. I'm not sure how I ever pumped up mountain bike tires before hand, my pressure must have been all over the place.

I gotta be honest, not in love with cleaning, so I couldn't give a cleaning supply item a 5 star. But these have been great brushes, I've had a set well over a year now and not had any issues. Bike is always shiny and clean, and brushes/bristles are still in great shape. Buy this and take care of your two-wheeled friend.

These are my go to shoe for connecting my shoes to my pedals. The shoes fit true to size, have adequate ventilation, and are quite comfortable. Two velcro straps and the ratcheting ankle buckle provide the right amount of adjustability for whatever your ride plan for the day is.
The sole is stiff enough to be efficient and with the rubber lugs on the outsole you have plenty of traction for those hike-a-bike situations. So far I've taken these shoes through every type of terrain and dirt substance imaginable from sand, snow, and mud and have had zero durability issues.
Mavic's customer service has been phenomenal too. I broke a buckle (in travel of all things, not riding) and they were super fast at sending a replacement. I use these with spd pedals on both my mountain bikes, and a cross bike and I don't plan on switching shoes anytime soon.

I love these chews, especially the cherry cola. These are perfect to add some variety to the bars and gels and long rides and runs. Good flavor, good energy, and some caffeine enhanced flavor options. They don't handle heat that well though, so they may get a little melty/sticky if you have them in a jersey pocket on a hot day.

This is a great product. Well thought out, easy to setup and adjust, and very durable. My 2 year old is still figuring the thing out, but it's easy to adjust it to his height, and he's getting better at it each day. This will teach him balance and give him confidence to transition over to a pedal bike when he's ready. I don't know if he or I am more excited about it.

So I'm giving this 5 stars because it is so good, but it does have one minor flaw. I don't understand why they built the chest pocket the way they did, it is in a funky spot, and gets bunched up. Ok complaint out of the way. This jersey is great, it wicks well, is very lightweight and comfortable. It fits slim, but not skin tight. The standard 3 pockets and full zip makes it perfect for all day epics. Perfect for mountain biking.

I love the oval. I was skeptical at first, but now I'm running oval on the hardtail and full squish. The direct mount is so clean and easy. 0 dropped chains, 0 shifting issues, just pedaling efficiency and mountains of PRs. I find myself able to keep my speed up better while climbing without burning myself out, and I feel just as fast, or faster on the way down. 1x drive chains just got even better.

I'll be honest, these are not my daily go to gloves, just because I usually opt for a little padding. But they are light, well-designed, and they fit well for the days when I want the most minimalist glove I can find. Also, I love the finger details for brake lever grip, and the poppy bright colors.

I always go with a size L in gloves and these are spot on. The graphics are unique and so far they've been pretty solid. I've got a couple hundred miles on these and they are still going strong. Definitely the top pick out of the last 4-5 pairs of gloves I've had.

I upgraded my Seca 800 recently with this bad boy. It is insanely bright! Everything is dialed in with the light as I've come to expect from light and motion. The cord reaches a jersey with ease. It mounts to a handlebar or helmet easily, and the battery is shaped to hug a seatpost if you don't want to carry a pack or throw it in your jersey pocket. Depending on where you mount it. No issues for me so far, I never had any in the 3 years I've had my seca 800 either, so I think it should be smooth sailing. Battery life is great. If you want to ride fast at night, and maybe blind some unsuspecting night hikers at the same time, than this light is for you.

Solid Saddle

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Built up a new bike over the winter and went out on a limb and bought this saddle. I wanted to try something new and customize my sizing a little bit. I went with the medium based on my measurements as other reviews have mentioned. Once I got all the new bike tweaks out of the way and the saddle positioned where I needed it I realized I'd made a great decision on a comfortable, durable, and stylish saddle. Happy with my purchase and looking forward to many more miles of riding.
