Here's what others have to say...

I previously used a Salsa QR clamp but switched on my new SCZ 5010 Carbon for these reasons:

1) The Salsa has a really long QR arm. It helps with leverage but might actually allow too much, cracking your post.

2) The long, pointy QR arm is literally a pain in your ass while sitting on your top tune, hanging out at the top of the climb waiting for ride buddies.

3) It's Santa Cruz and will match your bike.

I have awful circulation and I live at 7,000 feet. I need the best globe I can get and I hate bulk. All of that is a tough combination to assemble. This does it though. I only have about five rides in them so far but was anxious to post this soon for everyone to know. The gloves are tough. They are extremely warm without bulk. The black/black is slick and will double as my Nordic ski glove without being too loud.

The surprise feature- they are touch compatible with my iPhone. I can pause Strava, take a photo or reply to a text without removing the gloves.

They are Euro too. What else need be said?

A sleeper glove that is among the best

I was overwhelmed with when I saw WTB release such a fat tire for cyclocross bikes. From my MTB background I know volume is king. I own a 2014 Ibis Hakkalugi Disc with an ENVE disc fork.

When I installed the tires on my Crossmax SLR wheels I could tell the tire/frame clearance would be a bit snug on the back, and have ample room on the front with the ENVE fork. On my first ride, within about 15 minutes I heard the first bit of tire rub on the rear. I don't know if the tire expanded a little or the wheel shifted, but it was rubbing the frame ever so slightly near the bottom bracket junction. I centered the wheel in the dropouts, cranked down the quick-release but it didn't fix it. I found the quickest route home as to not wear my frame anymore, and removed the tire.

This tire in 40C does not fit into a Hakkalugi. It does however fit in the ENVE fork, so if you have that on another frame give it a shot or only run it on the front.

You need only one mountain bike. You need this bike. I've raced competitively for 12 years. I've ridden for sponsors and have been unsponsored. XC, Short Track, Enduro and Marathon. These days, I own a single bike, and this is it. A recent weekend looked like this:
Friday - Race the Pro fat tire crit, all on city streets, at the Grand Junction Off-Road in Colorado.
Sunday - Race Pro 40 mile XC, on arguably the most technical XC in America at that same race.
Monday - Do lift-access runs for hours at Deer Valley, UT on "Expert only, downhill bike required" trails.

During those three days, I never changed a single thing on the bike aside from dropping the seatpost four inches on Sunday. I ride Enve M60 wheels, Continental X-King 2.4 tires, and XT brakes. The bike weighs in at 24 pounds.

I work at Competitive Cyclist, I race the fast races and I do the fun rides. I could have several bikes and I could have any bike, but this is the one and only.

You need only one bike. Period.

I've had several Rapha bibs in the past. I heard that in the early days (still?) DeMarchi and Rapha were produced in the same factory by the same people. I'd believe it, these are great bibs. Clean, crisp design, quality ditching and materials and the price is amazing. Stock up and go tick off some KOMs.

My Hakkal�gi Disc had a few CX seasons under it. In those I was throwing bar-spin no-footed cancan's over the barriers. I need to replace to continue dominance in the 2014-15 season. This popped right in the lower part of the headset and I was back to my Rainier in no time.

I first thought lace up cycling shoes were a gimmick. And then I tried them, first on the road with the Giro Empire. The fit is far better than anything I've ever had with buckles. Buckles tend to leave a hot spot, even if you don't realize it until after you've tried something else. Full velcro will wear out over time and come loose. Laces are king. No, the laces do not come loose and no they will not get caught in your chain. There is an elastic loop for them on the tongue.

Game changer

Miir does something good for society, that is the most important thing here. You pay a fair price for a high-quality coffee cup and it helps others, simple as that. The cup is well insulated for both hot and cold drinks. This is my go-to for traveling and camping because it looks and works just like a pint glass. Your coffee stays hot and in the cup with a tightly fit lid, and then when beer:30 rolls around you just leave the top of and you don't look like your drinking beer from a coffee mug. As a bonus it stays cold longer.

- My one con of the mug is that the air hole in the lid is very small, so while it doesn't leak it can easily clog with dry coffee residue and become blocked. Once that happens the java doesn't flow out as easily through the mouth piece. To remedy it, just blow through the hole and you're good to go.
