Here's what others have to say...

Great XC race pedal
5 5

I ran XTRs previously, but switched to Eggbeater 11s this year. Coming from the Shimanos the engagement is vague and the float is a bit much, but now that I'm used to them I have no complaints. I don't baby my gear, so they've taken their fair share of rock strikes and seem to be more durable then my previous Eggbeaters, actually.

Worth it!
5 5

I've had my fair share of wheel sets, and while I think I would have a set of 6.7s in tubular form as a fun wheel set, it is hard to beat the versatility of the 3.4. Living somewhere with strong winds, it wasn't fun to ride on my previous Reynolds DV46ULs when it was blowing out. I loved the feel of those, especially hammering up our power climbs here, but then most 1100g tubular wheels feel awesome. I didn't want to hassle with that for daily use, so I kept debating what to get before deciding to spend the money and get the Enves. Having looked at Zipps, I was really close to getting the 202FC, but read of issues with the 2013 and previous year hubs. The Enves are stiff, relatively light, handle winds like a champion, and feel faster than the previously mentioned Reynolds. The brake performance has been awesome, and I am very happy with my purchase. It's also nice to know that the Enves are made in the USA and that they have their warranty should any issues arise.

Assos makes some incredible cycling gear. While I think some of it is ridiculously priced, and therefore I will never be able to purchase any unless it were marked down 85% (cough cough CC) the Mille is the most comfortable bib I've had the pleasure of using. I wear mine while riding my mountain bike now, with some equally expensive MTB baggies over them, and I forget that I'm even riding my bike. Hard to go wrong with these, especially at the current discount. I can only imagine how awesome the new S7s will be.

Tough enough for MTB
5 5

I run this stem on my HT 29er and it has been great for that application. Previously ran one on my road bike and had no issues either. It's nice that it has the T25 bolts, as almost every other bolt in my MTB is the same. The Beyond Black is a good look too, perfect for any "stealth" bike build.

I hate installing tape that is hard to get on, like Fizik, and this tape doesn't let you down there. I decided to try the carbon variety and have to say that while it looks nice, it isn't as comfortable as the Lizard Skins I usually run. It's really firm and I think if it were wet the bars would be very slippery. Bar tape can be pretty subjective, so that's why I gave this a 3 star, maybe it will be 5 for you!

I've ran numerous 3T stems and I have never had any issues with them. Since the stem is very important, I've never had the desire to try some of the uber light alternatives which you can find online. The Arx is a great match with my all 3T finishing kit, and hasn't faulted me in the 4 years I have used the stems. Great product, highly recommended.

Good choice
5 5

If you're looking for a comfortable, compact bar, it is hard to go wrong with this one. I ran mine for roughly a year and was very satisfied with it. Ultimately I decided to try a narrower and classic shaped bar, (3t Rotundo) but I would still be happily running these if I didn't come across a great deal. The stealth model looks great in person too, which is what really matters, right?

Great shape
5 5

I run this bar on my road bike. Having previously used compact bend bars, I wanted to try a classic bend. I think the reach and shape suits my needs perfectly, and it definitely seems stiff enough to me. It took a few tries to get the levers in the right place, but they feel good now!

I've had jerseys from all the big brands, and the Search and State SA-1 is a quality piece.

It fits pretty well, though I wish it were slightly shorter in the front for me so it would avoid some bunching of fabric that I get. It's not that bad, just nitpicking.

Ultimate XC fork
5 5

The SID has been a great fork for me.
I'm a big fan of the weight, stiffness and performance. The XX Loc is a good feature that I didn't think I would use too often, but I am frequently using it and am glad I have it on the bars for convenient access. Stay on top of service and it should give you plenty of trouble free miles

You've heard the saying, "Cheap, light, strong. Pick two. "
If you're going for cheap and light, then you can't go wrong with this wheel set.
I had read about the Crests being flimsy, but I put it off to people having bad luck. Mine were trashed after 5 months of riding, and I can say I was happy when I got my new wheels. These would be good if you're below 150, but I think the Arch Ex would be a better choice for anyone over 165.

I guess since Easton updated the horrible rear hub, this might be a decent wheel set. However, I feel that for being a trail wheel set, these didn't seem to be as stiff as I thought they would be. (Un)fortunately I sold my wheels before Easton admitted their rear hub design was horrible and moved on. I will say that Easton does have good customer service, but I felt that I had to call them far too many times for a problem that I shouldn't have had in the first place..

Amazing wheel set
5 5

I've used a few different wheel sets on my 29er, but the Enves have been the only wheel set that I am satisfied with. While they cost more than their aluminum competitors, the Enves can take a beating while others will need to be trued. Mine have needed a slight adjustment once in 6 months of relatively hard riding, and that was after an impact that would have surely dented a lightweight (Crest) aluminum rim. I like knowing that Enve stands behind their products with a 5 year warranty, and that they making their rims I. The USA. No complaints from me about the DT hubs and CX Rays, everything has worked perfectly.

Awesome

I really like this bar for the riding I do.
The 700mm width works for me, and the sweep lets the bar be where my hands want it to be. While there may be lighter carbon bars, I feel that I can sacrifice the grams for something that I know will be durable and can take a beating ride after ride. If you want a flat bar with sweep, you can't go wrong.

I bought this helmet as I thought it would fit like my Vertigo, but it doesn't.
The helmet is tighter and doesn't sit on my head like the Vertigo does. The retention system seems bulkier and can interfere with glasses like my Oakley Radars, but works fine with my Salice 007. I don't hate it, as I would rather wear this than my Giro Prolight, but I will replace this helmet soon.

This helmet is awesome, I agree with Shannon, it is the Cadillac of helmets. I put mine on and forget it is even there. I like the retention system, it works well and the gel grippers make it comfortable. My Oakley Radars work fine with this helmet, not sure what the other complaint is about. I usually put my glasses on before tightening up the helmet. While the price is a bit more than other top of the line helmets, it felt better on my head than a Giro Ionos and Specialized Prevail.
