The mesh vent line down the front of both legs is killer. Nice and drafty for the goods. Material is tough as nails. Took a good digger down a rock face and not even a scuff. The chamois is really comfy as well, probably better than the one I was previously using. Nice size and length. They dont move around on your waist or hike up either. I think thats a huge plus. They have some sticky lining on the interior of the waistband that gets the job done. Only compaints? Would like a back pocket and even two normal pockets, thought it would of had them, it's only got the two cargo pockets. Additionally the zippers on the cargo pockets are finicky and catchy.
Easy to set up, nice and strong, nice and heavy. I thought I would be getting something of a lesser quality as it referred to it as a "home mechanic" stand. It's perfect. I can hang the 38 pound sled on there and wrench away. Paint has come off from tightening where the clamp attaches to the bike. Does not look like any stress on the metal, just the beautiful Park Blue. Im confident that if there were a problem, Backcountry or Park Tool would take care of the situation. I saw the PCS-9 and it looked a lot flimsier especially with the clamp for the bike. Would give er' 5 starts but Im going to wait and see if anything more comes of the paint stress areas.
First bike tool kit after a year of riding and telling myself it's time to work on my own bike. This has everything, comes with some instructions, but I'd recommend pairing them with a good book if your a newbie at wrenching. I think it would be nice to throw some lock tight in there and a torque wrench. Everything else is of the standard Park Tool fine quality. Box is limited in space, and won't really fit the chain cleaner in it conveniently, especially if your adding other tools and brining it around with you. I usually have it in the truck when riding. I say get rid of the cheap tire levers and get a shop lever in there. Also you get a brilliant chain cleaner that does the job just right, but you don't get any Park Tool Citrus cleaner (what they recc'd) but soapy warm water has worked thus far.
Bottom line is although it may be bad to have to use all of the tools in here, I am certainly looking forward to it.
Well bought these to install myself for the first time. Easy, obviously, but some of the "sealent" peices such as the "rubber hose thingy" can get in the way of certain derailleur setups. You've got to be careful with the actual Gore lining on the cable itself it can fray very easily.
Shift super smooth and the white's blinging. I ended up leaving out the "rubber hose thingys" as they didn't not line up or work with my X0 RD. Perhaps next time around I'll get it all dialed, but they still feel awesome.
I've had em for just under a year. I love the idea and think D30 will change a lot of padding setups, and hopefully drop in price. As with most of the 661 stuff I own the stitching and fabric are very poorly done. One seam just never cuts it, especially when its going through a soft neoprene material. They fit nicely, bunch up occasionally. I think the knee pads are great, but the grand canyon of a scar on my right elbow tells me that perhaps they are not the best suited for anything more than a soft dirt or sand crash. . . jagged rock lovers need not apply.
I rocked em for a while. Cactus tore off the right gloves knuckles, thumb and forefinger eventually wore out, all within a year of riding desert and sierra trails. Again similar to another FOX glove, the "protection" is all flair and design, how is neoprene going to fend off a branch?
They gripped nicely, and I definitely liked em more than the Pawtectors which I tore through immediately.
Perhaps it's just my gloves. I went to pull em on and the cuff just wripped off. Rips on the knuckles, grips bunch up when holding the bars. . . One minor fall and they are ripped to shreds. Sure you can send it back in but I want a glove that holds up a bit longer. Seems like it's just a leather glove with some "flare" that is supposed to double as protection.
I'll give em back a star or two because I think that they would be alright for non aggressive riding. . .
But if the glove fits. . .
Why is the Khaki cheaper than Black?
