Here's what others have to say...

I had a NiteRider SlickRock 900 and it was hard to believe there was anything better than that, but when bulb-replacement time arrived, I decided it was more economical to buy a new system, and chose the Pro 1800. On it's lowest setting, this Pro 1800 nearly matches the low-setting output of the SlickRock and is more than adequate for commuting, but on high, the Pro 1800 is just out of this world. Upgrades include a battery life indicator (very much appreciated), instant-on (the SlickRock had to warm up to full intensity), and a wider U-shaped beam that covers the entire road surface from shoulder to shoulder, but somehow manages to focus the highest intensity right in front of me. It can literally light up my yard, it's so bright. High-speed road descents are well within the scope of the Pro 1800. I've yet to take it off road. The whole system is incredibly lightweight. The wire connections are a little confusing at first, but they are solid & won't unintentionally separate. Handlebar mounts are very good, as is the helmet mount. I haven't found anything I don't like about this light yet. If you're a dedicated dark-rider who's willing to drop some coinage for the best, this is your ticket...lightweight, superb performance & features all converge to make this one hell of a light

Expensive, yes, but there has to be a reason, right?... The answer is warmth. Uncompromising warmth. You can use these with or without the secondary liner...so far, I haven't used the liner and I've been comfortable down to 25°F. I didn't think 5-finger gloves could hold warmth like lobster gloves, but these do even better. They cover about 3" beyond your wrist to eliminate any gap in coverage between glove & jersey. They have not allowed any water in, despite riding in a few moderate rains. Not overly bulky, and they've loosened up a little since I started wearing them, conforming nicely to my hand anatomy. Construction is excellent, as are the aesthetics. I'll really put them through the paces this winter & see how it goes, but they certainly fit the bill anywhere from 25°F to 45°F, rain or shine. Until now, I've preferred cold-weather riding with BarMitts and a thinner full-finger glove (at the expense of dexterity and maneuverability) but these just might be the all-glove answer I've been hoping for

These sit just above the cuff of the shoe, don't move at all (ie, they don't slip down), and do not cause any hot spots to develop. I know the trend is high-cuff socks, but that is a mistake. Your children, and your children's children, will scold you for participating in that gory faux pas. Do yourself a favor, and get these high quality, low-cuff socks that call no attention to themselves. Wool is real, and you should be too. Thanks

Garmin made huge improvements over earlier models (I used to run the 305). The Edge 500 has a much nicer design, especially the twist mount. Aesthetically, it looks great on the bike. Functionality is enhanced by placing the buttons opposite of each other. This allows easier on-the-bike menu selections by balancing your hand movements against themselves. I haven't had any trouble with the software, so perhaps I got an updated version from the one-star review on this page. The Edge 500 locks onto satellites much quicker...under 15 seconds is normal for me, and the backlight is white instead of sickly green. Customizable screens are another nice touch, and you can have the unit scroll automatically between screens if you can't jam all the desired data onto one screen. And there are many choices for what data to show. Cost is a little breath-taking, but I feel better now with about 15 months of daily use. It's still going strong, holds a charge, etc. I love that this thing just works, every time, no drama or fiddling around. It interfaces seamlessly with Strava (probably more a compliment to Strava than Garmin, but still....). I have no problem recommending the Edge 500

I've used these gloves for a little over a year, and am very satisfied. One reviewer said the gel padding became slick when wet...my experience is the opposite. Those gel pads become very grippy, and as such, these gloves are my go-to pair especially when it's raining. Over time, the white has become sullied and the black has bled into the white, but that's just life. I have had no issues with popped seams or any structural defects. The hook & loop wrist closures are wearing out, but again, we're talking about gloves that have been used a lot, and they function fine in spite of that. Comfort is very good, durability is excellent, styling is great as usual for Castelli. Most of my other gloves wear through the palms in a season. These are still going strong, so I'll just wear them out & hope I can find another set when it comes time to replace

The Lazer Helium is a stout helmet...not stupid light (as the name would imply) nor porky, but well constructed & solid. You feel like you're strapping on something that will in fact protect you. The RollSys adjustment tightens or loosens a band that goes around the crown of your head, which holds its position without any flopping around. Set it once & you're done. The chin straps are very thin & light, and fasten with a magnetic buckle that basically closes itself...very cool. Two beefs: the vents are not big enough to put a finger into to scratch an itch, and something about the brow pads seems to direct sweat down the bridge of your nose, but these are very minor complaints overall. From a style standpoint, it's hard to beat...so glad to break from the Giro chokehold & snag a bit of Euro flair without going over the top à la that Catlike monstrosity. Graphics are very nicely done & show great attention to detail. Pads are comfortable, and there are no hotspots that develop over the long haul (I had a problem with the Giro Ionos in this regard, right around the top of my forehead...something about it seemed to dig in there). For larger heads like mine, this helmet doesn't make you look like Marvin the Martian; on the contrary, it seems to strike a lower profile than other Size Large helmets. And for the extra-endowed, Lazer has an XL size which was too big even for my melon. I'm satisfied with this purchase

Now this is one well-thought-out design. The 26L model has an abundance of useable space without feeling like too much...I can't imagine why anyone would need a 34L model. But anyway, I use this pack every day to haul a full business-casual outfit to/from work, plus a bag lunch, the occasional file folder, iPad and/or laptop (15"), and all my sundries. There is still room for more if you need it, but if you don't this pack holds whatever you throw at it without slop or shifting around on your back. I love all the details...the retractable key-chain holder inside the right shoulder strap, the cell-phone holder on the left (which fits a large-screen smartphone), the small mesh opening at the bottom in case of a spill or unanticipated rain shower, a bomb-proof built-in rain-fly which keeps everything perfectly dry (including riveted drain opening at the bottom in case water should find its way in...which mine hasn't), dog whistle designed into the sternum strap...and on and on. The straps are comfortable but the slight bulk of the strap-pockets takes some getting used to. It feels a little like wearing a life preserver. This pack lays flat on your back, and will pick up sweat. You will not arrive at your destination sweat-free, so just be aware. The color is a bright but not garish mustard-yellow with reflective accents front & rear, including the rain-fly. Internal pockets store everything, including an integrated U-lock sleeve. The outermost compartment is soft-lined for scratch-susceptible items. Mesh pockets on the side lay flat, but can easily hold a water bottle each if needed. The helmet clip has adjustable tension to hold that onto the pack securely, and all the straps (shoulder + belt) fold into the pack for toting around the airport, made easy with the integrated side luggage handle. Zipper pulls are another great detail that makes everything so easy to operate. I mean wow...what a pack. Overkill for the casual commuter, but if you ride day in & day out in all weather (because you don't have a 2nd car and don't want one), this is the answer

High quality shirt, nice graphics...but the horizontal stripe is screen printed and feels a little tight across the chest. I'm guessing after a few washings (or deep breaths), this stripe is going to crack apart. We shall see. That aside, the shirt has a nice slim fit and good length. No danger of this shortening in the wash, which is an all-too-common annoyance with lesser threads. Especially good for wearing around the shop, or post-ride bonfire shenanigans

Got the Grey/Black with Orange graphics...quality of fit and construction is superb. It looks really good. Fit is race-snug but not restricting. Zipper is a little dainty but it stays comfortably out of the way and functions fine. Three rear open pockets plus one small zipper pocket on the right side...really nice detail for stashing cash or ID...stuff you want to keep on you, but not necessarily jammed in with gel packs and flat repair kits. Love all the little details like a rubber Italian flag just below the rear neckline, the 4th pocket, the mesh pits. Very satisfied with this purchase

Features warm, soft, thin fleece on the interior, and a wind/water resistant outer-layer. Perfect for the cold, drizzly ride this morning. Keeps me toasty & very effective against the wind & rain. I saw water beading up on the arms and rolling off. Can be worn by itself or with a baselayer. Cuffs are nice...they stretch to accommodate gloves...I prefer to overlay the gloves as opposed to overlaying a jersey with the glove cuff. Anyway, the graphics are subtle and crisp. Quality of construction is top-notch, and the full zipper is smooth. Collar is not fleece lined, but it is still soft & not at all irritating. I'm 175lbs / 6' tall, slim, and the Large fits well...not race-tight, which is OK for the type of rides this Jersey/Jacket is likely to see. It is broader in the pits than other Castelli clothing I own

This is a very nice jacket for basic wind-blocking on chilly morning rides, like those transition days when you start out in the 40s, but know it'll warm up into the 60s/70s by mid-day. It fills the gap where leg & arm warmers are over-kill, and you want a simple, minimalist, easy-to-stow solution to get you over the hump. Also good for warmer rides that wander into higher elevations with their 20º temp changes. What really shines about the jacket is the construction. Fit is slim & right-on as far as the size chart...no flapping around at speed. The sleeves are cut long for very comfortable positioning on the bike. White is translucent, so you can see your kit underneath. The zipper is at an angle which feels awkward at first, but then you realize you're not getting stabbed in the neck by the zipper when you have it all closed up. Good stuff

Well constructed, with balanced padding...not too much, not too little. Fit is perfect according to the chart. Just be aware that the black Pittards leather palm will bleed onto your white bar tape & discolor it. I switched to a model with the light grey palm, and no problems. Durability is my primary concern when it comes to gloves, and I used Monacos all last season. No popped stitches and no tears. They remain comfortable. The palm started to give out late in the season...worn through between the gel pads at the wrist, yet rideable enough to finish out the season

You can now find these pretty cheap as shops move their Pro 3s out the door to make room for Pro 4s. I ran Pro 3s all last season, including races & century+ rides, racking up 2800 miles on one set before they needed replacing. They saw all road conditions, from gravel to new blacktop, from hot summer sun to pouring rain, and I always felt safe & in control. If you switch to Pro 3s from low- or mid-level tires, you can really cut through the marketing hype & realize they elevate you above the road or weather conditions, so you can just focus on the ride. In my experience, Michelin tires are consistently the best bang for the buck, and Pro 3s today represent a limited-time, low-cost gateway into the realm of upper end bike rubber. The only step up from here is the black art of tubular

Like other reviewers say, these are some good quality socks. They fit low & tight, and are cool in the summer. Just the right amount of padding in the heel & ball to cushion long rides, and they positively do not slip down the Achilles, which happily prevents that annoying hotspot from developing. In the wash, these socks pick up hair & lint like nobody's business, but that's a minor nit...even my beloved merino wool does that. They are "wear 'em & forget 'em"...just as a sock should be

Never heard of Icebreaker? Neither have I, until now. Glad I went for it. Superb quality jersey. If you know & like wool, this is the jersey for you. Fabric is light-weight and very soft. Positively no stink & no itch. Medium fits my 6' / 170lbs slim frame perfectly, which is to say I like a close cut when it comes to jerseys. Stitching is top-notch and the attention to detail is what you'd expect at this price point - no hanging threads, smooth zipper, silicone gripper around the base. Everything about this jersey says "shaken, not stirred"

Tried many different shoe covers, from neoprene to Amfib to rubber-coated and so on. Then went with Northwave hi-top winter shoes, and still no satisfaction. Finally took a chance on these Gore Race Power (Thermo) overshoes, and couldn't be happier. These are to the feet what BarMitts are to the hands for winter riding, though quite a bit more svelte. These do not run large...on the contrary, I could not fit a Large on my size 44 shoe, so had to size up to XL. Those fit great. I've ridden many, many winter miles this year through rain, slush, bitter cold, wind and precious little sun...the Gore Race Power (Thermo) kept my mind completely off my feet because they were simply warm. Warm! What else do you need? They even protect you at that little point on the top of your foot where the ankle flexes upward, and water always seems to find a way in...not the case with these. I pull them off and the only moisture is from foot sweat, because again, the feet are warm. These covers + my regular road shoes + DeFeet WoolEator socks are all I need to get me through winter. Good stuff
