Here's what others have to say...

I bought this to replace my first gen Ambit. The Fused-Alti feature and more memory and battery life are what made that decision. The Fused-Alti feature incorporates both barometric and gps data to give a more precise altitude reference, though I've found that measurements can vary a bit depending on the terrain you are on. For example, on a small summit pinnacle like Lone Peak here in UT, which has a 10X10 summit area surrounded by cliffs, the altitude reference is off by a couple hundred feet if the gps fix in the watch wanders off at all. However on a broad, rounded peak, the altitude is usually within 10 feet of accurate. Pretty cool feature really, and I've found that I get the best results if I fire up the fused-alti about 20 minutes before getting to the trail head.

Another feature that is pretty cool on the watch is the auto-pause feature, which a lot of the Garmins have. I've found it works well for faster moving activities like biking and running, though while scrambling slowly up some exposed ridge it can be a nuisance.

The heart rate strap that comes with this... sucks. I found that communication between the strap and the watch would continuously loose sync. I ended up purchasing the Garmin ANT+ strap sold here on Backcountry which fixed that problem. I suggest getting the $600.00 version of this watch and then getting a different strap altogether.

Overall the build quality of this watch is pretty damn tough. That stainless bezel and the mineral lens haven't shown any signs of wear at all over the past couple months I've had it. The casing is the fiber-resin, which looks to be the same housing material of the original Ambit. Overall the watch is pretty decent, sans the issue with the heartrate strap provided by Suunto. This watch is tough enough to take a good beating out doors, but classy enough to be worn formally as well.

After trying to find something to stabilize the GoPro and get some more footage in exposed, rugged terrain, I purchased this. I was able to find a bolt with the same thread pitch for the adapter, and an insert which was installed on the top of one of my trekking poles. Works great at stabilizing footage, and not having to buy or carry another monopod up the mountain.

Used this for a custom mod.

I bought this to replace an aging unit on the bike. Initially it was a little confusing to figure out which one to get, bottom or top pull, high or low clamp until I got my hands on one. The install was pretty basic getting it dialed in. Performance wise it's held up good, shifting is decent. Seems to be on par with most of Sram's X9 lineup.

So far I've used these for XC, downhill and all mountain, both on the front and rear. After two hard season's worth of abuse they have held up and worn extremely well. The tread pattern is an excellent all around design for most of the terrain here along the Wasatch Front in Utah. Cornering grip was improved greatly after switching to these tires, as well as better rolling resistance. Once these eventually wear out I'll replace them with the same setup new.

I bought this one after checking it out down at the Back Country store location in West Valley. The machining on these posts seems to rival that of Thomson. The adjustment works great for the seat. The anodized gray version looks killer. I run three of these posts on all three of my bikes. Great post of the price.
