I have fairly large hands and until now, it has been difficult to find a glove that fits just right. however, these gloves are a perfect fit. i normally wear an XXL in other manufacturers products and am left with slightly loose fitting gloves. I wear an XL in these gloves. I would highly recommend.
As others have stated these pedals are very easy to get in and out of. Being able to adjust the release is quite helpful. These are my first set of clip-in pedals and so far i am very happy with them. I do not like using them without cycling shoes, they do not inspire confidence on the trail without being clipped-in.
super gnarly tires. the higher rolling resistance is not noticeable. they grip like no other and handle very well on wet/snow packed trails. this will be my second season using these tires. i would definitely recommend.
These brakes are amazing...definitely agree with Tony about the grabbing for life. The adjustable grip allows for great control. If you can afford the Carbon, go for the Ultimate Series...But i think you will be more than happy with what the 7's provide.
