Good looking shifting

This was put on my sisters Surly Krampus. Here is what she says:
"If you're wanting to convert your drivetrain to a 1x11, this is your cassette. An 11 speed which fits onto your standard freehub body. It's a great cassette for the price, and it's black! It looks great and shifts smoothly."

These were put on my sisters Surly Krampus. This is what she has to say.
"These rotors are as stylish as they are functional. The black centerpiece looks great, but more importantly, they work flawlessly. Great stopping power, plus they are the quietest rotors I've used. No more goose honking down the trail. I'll definitely buy them again.

I was hoping that this would be long enough to cover my neck and still pull over my ears. This wasn't the case as its not actually 1/2 the size of my regular buffs. I don't normally need the full length of the normal Buffs and thought this would be perfect but its not. It works great just around the neck or as a headband. It would be a lot more versatile if it was a few inches longer.

So far I like these a lot. I'm recovering from a knee injury from last year and wanted something to give a little extra stability when I'm not wearing a brace. These are very comfortable and offer the support that I was looking for. They also help with fatigue which I really like. I have been using them for skiing and running and they work great for both. When running on really cold days or in snow I wear a calf sleeve so my whole leg is covered. I really like the CEP Progressive calf sleeve. I am 175lbs and 6'1" and went with a medium. The CW-X size chart had me in a large but the large was a little loose and didn't offer as much compression as I wanted.

4 stars and not 5 only because of sweat displacement. They claim that the forehead pad keeps sweat off of the eyes, and while this does a better job than any other helmet I've owned, I still get an occasional bead running straight down my face. Other than that this is an incredible helmet with great features. The GoPro buckle on top is nice when used and almost unnoticeable when unused. The flip up and removable visor is great. The chin strap is extremely comfortable and the included bag is a nice touch to keep your helmet nice.

This works well and the way its all help together is really nice. My only complaint is that the levers are a little cheap. They have worked so far but I don't think they will last.

I bought these for my sister. This is what she had to say.

"Love them so far. Perfect cross country tires, good for hard pack smooth trails. 2.4 gives extra stability and makes the ride feel smooth. I am able to climb with more confidence and success than befoe over more challenging terrain. I was riding on Spcialized Ground Control 2.1 front and 2.3 rear previously."

I have lots of Smartwool, Icebreaker, Bridgedale, Teko, Darn Tough and a few other brands of socks. They are all great but there is something about these socks that makes me pick them over any of my others. They are the perfect weight, perfect fit and are super durable. The sizing chart is spot on. They are my go to running and hiking sock. I am looking forward to buying some Point6 ski socks this season.

I love these shorts. These are currently my go to running short. They are light weight and fit really well. The built in boxer brief keeps everything in place, wicks really well, and prevents chafing. The short is the perfect length. It is short without showing off too much white man thigh. I also like the pockets really well. They are small, zippered and on the side seams. They go towards the back and are deep enough for a couple of gels and a package of chews. It comes about 6 inches above my knee. I am 6'1" 170lbs and have the medium.
