Here's what others have to say...

Real talk, it’s not a matter of if you’ll get a flat but when. In fact, the difference between a 10-minute fix and walking your bike home hinges on whether you’re prepared for the inevitable. That’s why I made a step-by-step tutorial for fixing a flat that’ll save your ride someday. Step 1: Removing the Wheel Before you start looking for the culprit, you’ll need to remove the wheel from either the frame or fork. Depending on your bike, you’ll either have to loosen the quick-release and drop the wheel or remove the thru-axle and drop the wheel. We suggest [...]

While Diamondback may not be the first brand that comes to your mind when thinking about road bikes, they did an excellent job on this frame.

Fit - with slightly less aggressive geo than a full fledged race bike, this frame has all day comfort while still maintaining quick handling and incredible stability on descents.

Ride - the Podium frame does a great job with balancing performance and comfort. While the frame didn't have superbike acceleration, it was quick to respond when getting on the pedals and turning the bike. Generally, I'd expect a bike with this type of response to be less compliant than the bike actually was, which ultimate made this frame a great balance of performance and all-day comfort.

While i may not have the biggest legs in the world or the smallest these fit a little tight in the legs compared to other 511s and it may be due to the "commuter" fit.

Waist size is perfect and I really enjoy the slightly higher rise (designed to not look like a plumber on the bike), but like everyone is saying these are a little snugger in the legs than other levis.

That being said, I'm probably going to pick up another pair. I'm alright with the tighter legs and really dig the rest of the fit and stretch. I'll have to have a riding/work pair and a clean pair.

There’s epic, and then there’s Epic. In my ten years of racing downhill, I’ve seen the term overused to the point of meaninglessness; however, I can comfortably say that the 2014 Whiskey 50 mountain bike race presented by Epic Rides in Prescott, AZ was, as promised, Epic in every way. And I feel no shame admitting that, for me, it was in the not-so-good sense of the word (aka Type II Fun). For me the ordeal, uh, experience started two weeks before the start with a casual, “Hey, want to go race 50 miles?” Our “civilian” entry in the amateur [...]

These are a great simple running short. With two side pockets that are perfect for an ID, spare cash, or an iPod, and a rear zippered pocket the essentials for a couple hour run are there. When loaded up, the waist band does a great job keeping the shorts in place and you out of a 90s rap video.

The best part is probably the feel of these shorts. With a soft and light touch you barely notice they're on. The short isn't only comfortable, heat and moisture are handled 100% while out on the road or trail.

If i had to nit pick, I'd like to see the fabric be a bit tougher to push these in the durability department went out on the trail or hiking but these are running shorts and perform great as them.

This tool has everything I've needed on my current trail and road bikes. The essentials are there and a few tools have been conveniently shaped to make on trail fixes easier. That along with a simple band for a case you can't go wrong for an on trail tool.

I opted for the Reverb due to its fully hydraulic actuation and to this day am still happy with my decision. The ease of use with the light actuation button (mounted on the underside of my bar on the left) is incomparable to competitors. After 3-5 rides I found myself instinctively using the post with little thought of preparation by either slowing down or glancing at the lever.

The post has been on my bike for 3-4 months now with no issues that weren't solved with general maintenance (aka refill the air chamber to the required PSI). When the air pressure dropped enough below the required height, the saddle would sag through the stroke, but thankfully this was solved within seconds. One thing I would like to point out is seat clamp torque. If this is over tightened there is a good chance the post will not drop or will hang up on release.

That being said, I haven't encountered any of the previous generation issues and am finally convinced a dropper post is a must have for any trail rider out there due to the immense increased to on trail fun.
