The TieRod fits snugly on my '08 Outback crossbars. It was quick and easy to instal thanks to the great instructions and simple design. This is the first roof rack I've owned, and I wasn't sure how secure the bike would be. All doubts were erased after driving across the country and up the East coast with my ride safely attached the entire trip. The low profile is great, and there is little to no noise, even at interstate speeds. Last, but not least, the colors are pretty swell.
I've ridden these for about 200 miles and have had no problems with them. The material and construction are solid, and the fit is good (size M 5'11" 160#). I've had no problem with the silicone leg grippers and the chamois has been comfortable for me thus far.
This is a great jacket for cool to cold weather cycling. I've felt comfortable with only a jersey beneath it in the upper 30s to 40s, and in the high 20s to 30s with a thermal base layer. The shell fabric sheds snow and light rain, and the full length zipper helps drop heat on hard climbs. At 5'11" 160# the medium has an athletic cut, but leaves enough room for layering. It works great long rides as well as short commutes.
I have no idea why I haven't been wearing socks like these my whole life. The mesh is in all the right places to help cool your hot feet. There's also a good feeling with the shoe for better shoe/pedal interface.
I loved a few things about these bibs. The cuffs were very comfortable and kept the legs nicely in place. The fabric was super breathable and very comfortable. I had no problem with the seams itching anywhere. On paper and in my hand they looked great
However, the fit was horrible. For whatever reason, anytime I came out of the saddle (sprint, climb, stop sign, etc...) the chamois found a way to give me a terrible wedgie. Sitting back down afterwards only compounded the issue. Originally, I had ordered a size L but moved up to an XL (I'm 5'11 160# 32" waist). Both sizes had the same issue.
