Familiarity: I've used it several times

I think the Fenix is an under rated bike. it's everything a bike should be, light, fast, complaint, and even priced like a cheap bike. The Fenix actually won a stage of the TDF in 2015. The geometry is not overly aggressive so pretty well suited for most riders. This doesn't take away from the performance of the bike at all. It climbs well but just as importantly it will descend with confidence. if you have questions on the Fenix frame, build options, or sizing feel free to contact me kylebrown@backcountry.com.

I hate to say that there are two reasons I buy a frame, but I think most of us are the same. We want a frame to look as good as it performs and the Idol is all of both. De Rosa has always made excellent frames that are works of art. The bike rides extremely well, I did have to slam the stem to have it as aggressive a race fit as I like but thats just my personal preference. Also at 5'7" i rode the 49.5 quite comfortably. if you have any questions on size or builds feel free to contact me kylebrown@backcountry.com

I am more of a XC rider when it comes to the mountains and usually ride a hard tail, I'm a very happy owner of an Air 9 RDO. I was able to really get out and rid the Jet 9 over the last couple weeks and I am tempted to change. I rode with an X01 setup and emulated my air 9 setup all around. It was confident in everything I rode and I didn't feel I really suffered in climbing, which is a big issue for me, I like to climb. If you have any questions on different build options feel free to contact me directly kylebrown@backcountry.com

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have worn Sidi road shoes about as long as I can remember. I recently decided to spread my wings a little and have not regretted it. They are a little roomier in the toe box than Sidi and I quickly grew to like that. They are extremely stiff and light, everything a good road shoe should be. It took me a few rides to be completely converted but I definitely am now. if you have any questions on the Lake shoes feel free to contact me here directly kylebrown@backcountry.com

The 6.7 is probably the most versatile wheel I own. this month I used it in an ironman 70.3 and a road race with a 5 mile finishing climb. They are my go to when I just don't know what to ride. They have held up through horrible weather and have never let me down, the 240 hubs are bombproof. The 6.7's are light enough to climb with and just plain quick on the flats. If you have any questions at all on them feel free to email me kylebrown@backcountry.com

I had picked up a Noah frame as a crit bike but really found it to be a great bike in general. I has ridden a helium for a couple years as a light climber is more my style but was pleasantly surprised and how well an all around bike the Noah is. feel free to contact me for more detailed questions on the Noah kylebrown@backcountry.com

I have been on Storcks for the past 2 1/2 seasons now and I can't see myself riding anything else. The Aernario is everything a high end frame should be. It's fast, athletic, nimble, light, comfortable. There are few frames that can be described as all those things, but that's why I ride an Aerenario. I'm happy to answer any questions about the frames - kylebrown@backcountry.com

I have to say that not a lot of bikes that are comfortable for the masses are race worthy but the C60 performance is more than impressive. I think the look of the lugged tubing got in my head and I expected less but it delivered and then some. it's smooth all day long but if you have to stand up to crank up for a sprint or hit a hill hard it's reactive and nimble. feel free to contact me with any questions on the C60 kylebrown@backcountry.com

I had the chance to get on these and then ride them in a 1/2 ironman recently. I have always gone back and forth and tried to read everything I could about aero wheels for my TT's and tri's. I have to say that for me these are the go to depth. They climbed like a goat, I flew by everyone. on the flats I'd take them over a disc wheel any day, hands down. I raced on a day with a little more wind than I would have liked and at 129lbs I was smooth and stable. feel free to contact me with any questions at all on them - kylebrown@backcountry.com

Enve makes the best wheels out there, I've ridden them all and road our mountain they are phenomenal. the 3.4 tubular were the perfect racing combination for me here locally in a hilly area. they are light but extremely stable for going down the other side. the DT swiss hub is bombproof. I have a set of old enve I65's that one of the first sets made my enve and they are still excellent. If you have any questions on these feel free to contact me directly kylebrown@backcountry.com

I built up a nice new XC race bike and skimped on wheels to save some money. Looking back I'm glad I did because then when I put the M50 on this week I could see that they were worth every penny. I can't say that there is a huge difference sometimes between products, but the difference between these and my "starter" wheels was night and day. They were fast, confidence inspiring, not to mention light. I can't ride anything else now. if you have questions on the M50 feel free to contact me directly kylebrown@backcountry.com

my first helium was 10 years ago and it cost me twice this. It did start a love for Ridley I still have and have owned several of their bikes. The Helium was my favorite being a smaller rider and a bit of a weight weenie. Although light is was still very solid in fast descents and I felt totally confident on it all the time. Sizing is just a little tricky because they do run a tad small compared to other brands in a similar size. I am 5'7" (barely) and rode an XS. feel free to contact me with questions on the Helium or sizing. kylebrown@backcountry.com

Storck makes some of the best bike out there, the Scenero disc is right in line with that. We don't have the build kit option on this frame but get in touch with me and I can give you pricing and options for building a complete bike with the Scenero disc frameset. kylebrown@backcountry.com

If you know the De Rosa heritage it's easy to understand why this is such a race worthy bike. Sometimes larger size frames can be a little noodley but the Protos is not at all. If you are smaller, like myself at 5'7" the ride is very stiff almost to a fault so not perfect if you have back or shoulder issues, it's a race machine, not a gran fondo toy. I was fine with it even on the small size but I just think it may not be for everyone. I have frames that I can build up with any components as well so just get in touch with me for any customization kylebrown@backcountry.com

It kind of gives you the best of all aspect of what you want in a road frame. First off it's fast, maybe most importantly it is very fast. Next it feels good to ride, it's not harsh, it just feel good on the road. if you have owned or ridden the dogma 2 or 65.1 think this will blow them out of the water, it's improved in every way. If you have questions on sizing, builds, compatibility etc. contact me kylebrown@backcountry.com

i bought some slx that i absolutely loved and these as a second pair but didn't want to spend as much money. they are really comfortable, and a very nice stiff sole. I would definitely recommend to a friend.
