Here's what others have to say...

Definitely an upgrade from the rubber that came with the bike. Even though they're a heavier thick tire, the tread gives it very low rolling resistance, and when it's dry out they're sticky as can be. Can't see myself getting a tire other than this from here on out.

Just got done with my first ride on the Road Machine and I'm glad I picked it up. Putting it together was simple, although I switched around the order of one of the instructions to make it easier. (throw me a comment if you need help) Once I got the bike on there it was very stable. I was using it in my attic, which likes to amplify noise to the rest of the house, but from downstairs it's just a very slight droning noise, not annoying or excessive at all. From on the bike, just the slight swooshing noise, but again, nothing bad at all.
This is my first trainer, so I have nothing to base it on, but I'm glad I went with this over the Cycleops as I saved about $80 at REI when it was on sale. (right now it's even cheaper on here)

This review is only for the lemon Builders bar, but judging by that I'd say the other flavors are good as well. The lemon isn't as thick and strong of a taste as other protein bars I've had, and is a good switch from the regular forms. It has a different feel when you're eating it, not a bad feel, just different, but I like keeping a box of the lemon around to mix up the typical protein bar experience.

As everyone else has said, these are a fantastic gel alternative, and I've taken this with me along with gel just to switch things up. Its a fun little game, reach in my jersey pocket and see what I grab first. I've only had strawberry, but the taste of those are great. My girlfriend has had the black cherry and said its fantastic as well. Consistency is a good chewiness, but you do need a bit of water to get it down without a few coughs. No more than required by gel though.

Sorry about the corny title, but the taste of these waffles (Stroopwafels) are amazing. A slight cinnamon taste, and it's very soft and easy to eat while on the bike, or at work, or at home, or anywhere. I'm already addicted to them. Gives you a good burst of energy as well.

Sure, the energy part gives you a kick, but when you first try the Honey Stinger gel (gold flavor) for the first time, if you've been raised on the typical gels, this stuff is surprising. Its a little thicker than others I've used such as Gu an PowerGel, but its flavor is a welcome relief. The Gold flavor tastes just like pure honey.

White lightning makes a 3 different types of lube, Clean ride, Epic ride, and I think Wet ride, all with difference characteristics. Sadly RealCyclist only carries Clean ride, but at places like REI you can get all 3. On the back of the bottles they state what lube is best for what.
Edit: I picked up the Clean ride wax based lube a few weeks ago, and I really like it. The wax aspect to it do a good job of preventing too much crap from getting on your drivetrain, and then when its time to clean it off, most gunk is stuck to the waxy part and comes right off with a brush.

Fantastic gloves. The padding is spectacular and fit/comfort is second just as good. I'd choose these over the standard Select Glove by Pearl, as the Gel feels a little nicer.

I'm a huge fan of bibs, but these normal tights are great. It has the Pearl Izumi Elite chamois in it which is spectacularly comfortable. Very warm as well, the fleecy type inside of the tights are sure to keep the cold out, and the zipper bottoms really help get them off, or just for a slight bit of venting post-ride.

I can't really explain how particularly well the helmet works, as I've kept myself upright on the bike, but the fit is just fine, and the vents keep my head cool. Only issue is the tightening mech on the back seemed to get stuck, I never adjust it, so it's not really a problem, but I feel like it could get much more annoying if I had to.

Fantastic upgrade piece

My first bike came with Tiagra derailleurs, and so after a while I decided to bump up to the Ultegra. Great decision, I would miss shifts every now and then when pedaling under a great load, especially climbing. With this new RD I haven't had that problem yet.

These were my second pair of clipless (still getting used to the naming scheme of pedals) and these were a fantastic upgrade. I moved up from Crank Bros. candy, and the larger platform makes things just seem more substantial, from when I decide to stand up and hammer it, or just clipping in. I would definitely suggest these.

First thing I noticed when putting this bib on was the different fit of the straps. They're very wide set, and the top of the short is quite low which I was worried about for when I actually go on the bike. I had no issues with it digging into me, or the top attachment feeling weird, and I absolutely loved the Chamois. It was quite stiff feeling compared to my Pearl Izumi, but is awesome during rides.

Size wise i'm 5'10 175lbs wear a 32/32, I ordered a large

These were my first pair of bibs, and these have made me never want to go back to just shorts. The chamois is wonderful, even on the longest of rides, and I've had no issues with chafing with the suspenders. Size wise, I purchased a M and I'm 5'10 175lbs and I wear a 32/32. Fits perfectly even with what my girlfriend calls "Linebacker legs".

Edit: After a good 6 months or so of use, the chamois still smells new after washing and has retained no stink whatsoever. Sadly my Castelli bibs can't say the same.

Grabbed mine for a good price as I needed another cap to grab the sweat from my head. Nice and simple cap, seems to fit a little larger than the 2 Nike caps I have, but it has less elastic at the back, and is still a secure fit. I'll be wearing a helmet over it regardless. No complaints here.
