I have 2 pairs of these and it looks like the new spring colors are reason enough to buy a third pair! Great value with the removable chamois (tech specs says they are integrated but look closely at the pic- they are removable). The chamois padding is thick enough- I use these for full-day MTB here in Colorado. I've never had an issue with breathability even in 90 degree heat ("but it's a DRY heat").
The pocket design is perfect for my use. They open up a bit when riding to keep thy nether region nice and cool. A Gu packet fits nicely in the right side "coin" pocket. And the upper left coin pocket has a slot for my ear buds.
The size chart is spot-on. For a baggier look, size up.
I think they are a bit expensive to be billed as a townie short but the value is there with the included removable chamois to be used as a trail short. I'd like to see this design used with a two-way stretch fabric. The cut of these shorts is great and very flattering.
Just say no to spandex!
This is the first time I've bought a helmet sight-unseen with no initial try on or knowledge of the fit of other Fox helmets. Based on the size chart and another poster's review, I was confident that it would fit.
It's not that light in spite of the massive air vents, but that doesn't really bother me. This helmet offers great coverage for my lid and comes with a full extra set of padding. I really like how the straps don't interfere with my prescription sunglasses although they did take a good 10 minutes or so to dial in. Like others on here, I cut off the excess strapping and used a heat knife to prevent fraying.
Adjustment on the back of the helmet feels good and does not get in the way of my ponytail, which is a bonus.
Plus, it makes me look like a better rider than I am. No more mushroom head!
Lemonzest and Iced Oatmeal are the bomb. These bars hold up nicely as they end up at the bottom of my pack. Low mess and easy to digest. Not too sweet.
Compact in size, it takes up no room in my pack. It's not too large for my girly hands. I have no problems getting the torque I need when making adjustments. I haven't had to use the pin pusher yet, but it seems functional. I like the design of the tool and the rubber isolator that comes wrapped around it (not pictured). This will help to reduce vibrations when it's stashed in your seat pack, thus preventing the wrenches from opening and the bolts from getting loose. The only thing that's missing is a bottle opener.
And, they really do stop on a dime. As a disc brake noob, these puppies rock! Very smooth stopping and great control when slowing over obstacles or whenever I wuss out. These are very easy to adjust and the levers feel great even with my long and spindly fingers. I use these brakes F and R and am completely happy with their performance. I've done a pretty good job of scratching the carbon levers from crashing and/or bailing, but they have held up great to my abuse.
It feels secure and looks good to boot. I have the 90mm stem for a med FSR that I'm dialing in for AM. I've got 8 rides on this stem and so far I'm happy with it.
Great first PAIR of flats for me. I'm not too concerned with the bearings at this point but we'll see how things work real soon; it won't stop raining here in CO... They paid for themselves after my first rides around Fruita- I bailed right when I needed to without any worries. Totally worth it if you need flats like me and are on a budget. Ladies, you can also change the plates to add a bit of girly steeze to your bike! I can't wait to get the green to match. Don't forget the shin guards!
