Here's what others have to say...

I've been a PI gel glove guy for a long time! The newest version is a great glove. The gel is excellent for vibration reduction and general cushion. The breathability of this glove is top-notch and the materials are excellent. The new velcro strap is so much better than the old one! But I have a few caveats...

The gel pads on this version are external - and smaller. I was worried the minute I took them out of the box. Turns out they are fine on MTB bars and I don't think twice about it. On road bars however, it seems like there is too big a gap between the pads in certain hand positions. Specifically between the palm and thumb right where that seam is. I find that the curve of the bars from the tops to the hoods (where I frequently rest my hands) fits right in between those pads. The older version with the big white pads handled this a lot better (and they are still going strong after more miles than I can count).

I have a fat thumb, just one - the other one is not. The thumb holes on these gloves are pretty snug. I'm waiting to break them in some more but I might have to cut it to get my fatty through.

Just back from a 9 mile, mixed surface run - and I'm impressed. Overall the materials are great and the fit is perfect (for my foot).

The outsole is well lugged for great offroad traction, but they are well placed for road running too. Not wobbly or rough under foot. Forefoot protection is perfect for techincal terrain - but no so stiff that you lose feel for the trail.

Drop is a personal thing, but I'm a big fan of the 4mm drop for trail running, keeps you low and your foot in a nice natural, neutral position.

The number 1 thing you have to do when you get these shorts is cut apart the inner and outer shorts. There is NO REASON they should be connected the way they are. Cut the mesh connector then get rid of the extra material as close to the seem on both sides. No more bunching of extra fabric. Better fit from the floating outer short. And at the end a ride, pull off the liners and wear the shorts to the post-ride BBQ.

I'm a long time Shimano user and switching to SRAM was noisy! But not in a bad way! My older 105 shifters are very quiet through their motion, with a very subtle engagement. These Force 22s are VERY positive and very firm in their action. Very different but not worse - just something to be aware of.

DoubleTap is great except for the feedback at the very top of the cassette - when you are out of gears the shift action requires that you press and hold until it releases. If you don't wait long enough or press hard enough you get an unintended upshift which can be bad! This differs from the Shimano that just "locks" the lever and doesn't allow it to move.

This is a very personal preference but I don't love the shape of the hoods and I feel like the cables aren't as buried as they could be - you can still feel them through the material. You may not notice it...

Overall performance is excellent. Great mechanicals and a very solid feel. Also the best levers I've used yet with good range of adjustability on the shift lever.

I run this cassette on a cyclocross setup for long mixed surface rides with lots of climbing. The cassette gives me a wide range of gears to choose from and the 32 is a lifesaver on some of the bigger climbs here in the Wasatch. Shifting is smooth up and down and it runs quiet paired with a SRAM chain. The jump between 28 and 32 can take a little getting used to, but it is not a detractor at all and people riding other wide range cassettes or 1x drivetrains won't even notice.

WiFLi 11-32 cassette option:
11-32: 11,12,13,14,15,17,19,22,25,28,32
Weight: 300g

I've got about 800 miles on a medium cage version running 11-32 cassette. Shift performance is very good and both setup and adjusting is easy. Shifts well under heavy load (when required) and hasn't required much attention at all.

Does a fine job managing chain slack across all gear combos in rough terrain (setup on a cyclocroos bike for trail use).

One of the stiffest frames I've ridden. Fork is also stiff, but makes for very direct steering and braking even on very rough roads/trails. Flies on singletrack, climbs like crazy, handles anything you throw at it.
I'm pretty sure the 4-star doesn't include the RDO post, but the rest of the build is right on. Note that the wheels have a max pressure of 45psi, and the tires a marked minimum of 50. I'm running them tubed at 4o with no problem.
50cm frame with heavy SPD pedals and 2 cages comes in right at 19 lbs.
