This is a great pump for road rides, training, and the like. I just don’t trust my skills with one CO2 cartridge when in a pinch. Riders who complain about the pump taking 100s of strokes to achieve pressure are being unrealistic about the abilities of a small, light, pump the stashes easily in your jersey or tucks behind a bottle cage. It is great for what it is meant for…saving my ass flat after flat…

This faring does help reduce some of the noise caused by after market roof racks but certainly not all of it. The biggest reason it gets 3 stars is the way it attaches to Thule’s Aero rack system. Over all it is a pretty poor design resulting in the inability to use the faring at the same time as a ski rack. It isn’t a big deal during the summer when carting around bikes, but up here in New England it would be nice to use it for Ski season as well.

Thule makes great products you can trust and will last through many seasons of use and their customer service is great. I found these footings a little difficult to get on the car. A few of the plastic pieces had manufacturing inconsistencies in them that made it very difficult to correctly install without causing damage. I called Thule and explained the problem; they sent me replacement parts the next day. Once on the car this rack system is a dream, it works great and the aero aesthetics make it appear closer to a factory installation. It would have gotten more stars if it were easier to install, but is still a great product.

Great Peddals, Not Exactly Ultegra...
4 5

These are good pedals. Shimano lists them as part of the Ultegra line of products. However, unlike the picture here shows they do not say Ultegra anywhere on them. They provide a nice stable platform and have rock solid bomb proof construction. When you step into these there is no question whether or not you are “in”, even with the tension turned all the way down this is a stable strong set of pedals. Only reason for 4 stars is Realcyclist.com’s slightly inaccurate photo.
