Thorns? Glass? Nails? No problem. This patch kit provides quality patches that will get you back on your bike in no time. Unlike some more affordable patch kits I have used in the past, the patches in this kit are top notch quality. They are easy to apply and in just a few minutes you are back up and running. Plus who doesn't love saving money. Patching your tubes works, and saves you from purchasing a new tube every time you get a flat.
I have been using this when I transport my mountain bike on top of my Subi. It is easy to install and works very well. Sure it is not quite as easy to use as a rack that does not require you to remove your wheel, however this works better than any of the other axle mount adapters I have seen or used. Simply flip it open, remove your wheel, install your axle, and slap your ride on the rack and lock it down. Once this is tensioned properly it holds your bike in place very well.
I have been using these cartridges all summer and they work very well. Considering how affordable they are I would have to say they are the best value cartridge on the market.
Compared to the innovations cartridges I have used these 16 gram cartridges seem to hold more CO2. This is nice when you are using them to inflate a tire larger than a 26 inch tire. These will completely fill my 650b tires and in some cases I still have a little left in the cartridge for a top off. Some of this will be determined by how high you run your pressure and what tires you are riding. Must say I am very happy with these cartridges and I will continue to purchase them.
This inflator is is lightweight and compact. It works very well and for the money I don't think you can find anything better. When pulling a trail fix the last thing you want is complications. You won't find anything on this inflator that is complicated. Simply twist it on to the cartridge, attach it to the valve stem, and release the CO2. If the cartridge you are using holds more CO2 than is needed for your tire just throw it back in your pack and save it until you need to top off. Basically buy it and forget it is there until you need it.
These tubes are what I have been running in my all mountain bike. So far I don't have one complaint. The rubber seems comparable if not possibly a little nicer than the rubber used in the Q-Tubes. After hundreds of trail miles I have only pinch flatted once with these tubes. If you are looking for a new tube and want something that holds up check these out.
I recently purchased this helmet and have been using it for the last few weeks. The helmet is very comfortable and is quite light considering it is a hard shell helmet. The hard shell makes the helmet more resistant to damage from light crashes compared to a helmet with out a hard shell. This is ideal for someone who might use the helmet not only for trail riding but also for hitting dirt jumps. I use this helmet for both jumping and trail riding. I occasionally wish there was just slightly more vents on the helmet, however I have only wished for these when pedaling uphill on extremely hot days. If you are looking for a cross country helmet you might want to look elsewhere. My head measures right at 58cm and the large fits well with the thicker pads added. I tried the medium and though it fit it was quite snug. I figured I would rather add padding than wish I had ordered a larger size. Plus the larger helmet size will now allow me to wear a thin beanie on cool weather descents. Overall I think this helmet has to be one of the best bargains available. The colors are also killer and look even better in person.
I have now owned this tire in a few different variations. Currently I have this Dual Compound in a 27.5 as my front and rear tire. Though I would prefer the full Stick E compound for the front tire this Dual Compound works very well. The side lugs are extremely sticky and inspire confidence while laying into a turn. The Dual Compound is the preferred compound for a rear tire as it has a more durable compound in the center which decreases roll resistance and improves longevity. Looking for a killer tire to do it all with, look no futher!
