Evan Grott's Bio

I'm orginally from a small town in upstate New York. I moved out to Utah in September of 10' and am loving every second of it. I had the best ski season of my life this past year and am looking forward to many more. I also love to go backpacking, mountain biking and kayaking.

It is at least a better than a brown box, I used this bike bag to protect my 29er during travel. When assembling the bag, the first thing I noticed was some of the fiberglass rods that give the bag structure were a bit too long for the sleeves provided, but I was able to chop about ¼ inch off the two that were too long. After this, the bike pack was pretty straight forward and the 29er wheels fit fine in the wheel pockets. I put the bike in a stand and attached the frame to the dropouts, made it a little less cumbersome. After I had all the packing in place I simply removed the bike from the stand and slid it into the bag. I did have to use a few extra zip ties and the handlebar strap seemed it was designed for a road bar and placed a wide mountain bar too high in the case. Total pack time was about 20 minutes. The case seemed to do exactly as designed and the bike arrived without damage. Only thing that could make this bag better would be the ability to compact it more for storage as it takes up a ton of space as well as having all the wheels swivel makes it a bit tough to control when rolling it around.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

i've been running these for several rides now and have fallen in love, not only does a new pedal make a world of difference these are pretty darn light for the price and very low profile. they do come with replacement nubs incase you lose one or wear them down to nothing.

These guys are a little narrower than lets say the freerider, also a bit stiffer under foot. I only ran this shoe as a flat before I had some seams blow out, Warranty process was fast but was then extremely disappointed to find that on the replacement shoes they missed a whole row of stitching making the velcro strap useless and my first ride inconvenient to say the least. Warranty round 2 must be the charm right?

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Fit is great on these and they dont slide down on long rides. Naturally they arent the most breathable in the world but they get the job done. sadly about 3 rides in the seams that keep the pad in place began to blow out. Dakine was quick with the warranty, but at 3 rides in it leaves me feeling unsure on the replacements as well.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

i had had enough with my triple chain ring up front so i took it all off and purchased this guy, no quide needed as long as you have a type 2 rear derailleur. once in a blue moon i will loose a chain. 32t is a decent range for the highs and lows, it does make climbing large hills somewhat painful though.

bought this for a friend and she has loved it, lots of protection where needed fits small heads quite well! breathes great and doesnt dump all the sweat down on your face. only minor complaint is that the chin strap will loosen up on its own from time to time, so it does have to be adjusted every once and a while, but is it is well worth owning for the protection you receive
