Here's what others have to say...

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!

I have had this bike for a few weeks and have loved every second of it. I use this bike on tight single track trails as well as more open fire roads. The bike climbs very well with the CTD suspension. For me, unless I am on a fire road, the suspension works best with the rear locked while climbing and I prefer the front left on the trail setting while climbing. This allows the front end to go up and over large rocks or obstacles with ease. I can't believe how well this bike climbs considering the amount of suspension and the geometry it has. Also on a side note the bike I have did come with a float 32 in the front.

I have not yet weighed the bike but I suspect with pedals it will weigh in between 32-33 lbs which is awesome for a full aluminum frame, 27.5 wheels, and long suspension travel. It is awesome that this bike comes with platform pedals included as most bikes do not. However I am sure most people will change to their preferred pedal as soon as the bike arrives.

Now to handling. This bike turns in similar to a 26 inch wheeled bike but with the larger wheels you can roll over larger obstacles with ease. The suspension soaks up larger drops and jumps while still providing an especially damp feel over rough rooted or chopped trails. I find I can ride the same trails as before much quicker with confidence. The brakes work exceptionally well and in my opinion Shimano really does offer the best brakes on the market. Considering that the M447 brakes are middle of the road the stopping power they provide is better than expected. All parts of the drive train, from the wide narrow ring up front to the SLX Shadow derailleur out back, compliment each other. Shifts are smooth and direct without delay.

Really for the money I think you would be hard pressed to find a better build in this price range. Bikes to compare this to would be the Kona Process 134 and Santa Cruz Heckler. In my opinion this bike has comparable components and is priced better. Now hit the trail!

Not quite sure what influenced the decision to only make this in two sizes. If you are at the bottom end of the sizing scale for the medium but are within the sizes listed the helmet will adjust to your head and will fit. If you are right below the sizing that is listed then the helmet likely will be too large. Feel free to contact our gearheads via live chat or by calling 1-800-409-4502 for further help sizing this helmet.

I threw these on my commuter. So far they have worked very well. I have had less flats using these than the last pair of tires I had on the bike. The tires seems to have a fairly stiff sidewall which helps them resist pinch flats from pot holes. These roll well and don't seem to have much roll resistance.
If you are looking for a performance road tire I suggest you look elsewhere. If you just need a solid tire that will get you from point a to b this one works great for that. So far I have noticed very little wear and they seem to be holding up well.

I recently gave these shoes as a gift and I have feedback to share. The shoes have incredible grip due to the awesome rubber that is used on the soles. The mid sole is stiff enough to provide adequate support on longer rides but is not overly stiff which means the shoes are still comfortable when you are hitting the town. These shoes do run true to size and offer a little wider toe box. If you have a really skinny foot this shoe may not be for you. The support is great and the shoes are very comfortable. Great shoe for around town or on the bike.
