Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been a huge fan of Oakley for quite some time. That said, I picked up a pair of these on sale and have been amazed at the quality. They are very light, very comfortable, and the rimless optics are perfect. I've swapped out for the Photochromic lens as late fall early winter sun angles are very low and I can simply put one lens in and it works in all conditions. Given that Northern Cal and Tahoe Sierra riding has a lot of sun / shade scenarios this has been perfect. They are the first pair of sunglasses I've ever worn where I've simply forgotten that I'm wearing them. They even saved my left eye from a branch in downieville and flying mud this past Sunday. They've been a great purchase.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm a hold out for sure. I still ride a 26er, and until this week was on a 3x9. If it aint broke don't fix it has been my motto. Given a really good deal on the X01 group, I modified my XTR cranks with a narrow wide chainring and went for it. I dropped over a pound, cleaned up the cockpit, and simplified my shifting. There has been zero chainslap since, zero missed shifts, zero "oh s@#$ I can't get the gear I want moments". I'm loving it. That said, I cut out my two top end gears and three bottom end gears by making the change. I've spun out a couple of times, but really, who needs to go faster than 34mph on a mountain bike. I've also done a couple longer climbs of 3000' where a gear or two lower would have been OK. That said - I'm sold. I've been a life long shimano lover, but sram's got a winner with these groups.
