Here's what others have to say...

I've been running this as my rear tire (2.4) for a month or two now and really enjoy the grip, and the slide. This tire is fairly slow rolling, but corners great, and can slide when you want it to. I would recommend this rear tire to anyone. The high volume makes you feel like you are riding a monster truck when paired with a 2.4 trail king front.

Is what this tire has. Its big, big enough to scare some people, but it has great grip in all conditions. It is a bit slow rolling, and a bit heavy, and doesn't like going under 15mph to get the grip it has, but once the tire opens up, its full on. This is a great front tire option for someone looking for a killer all mountain tire.

I have worn my fair share of mountain shoes, and currently own three pairs, but these are my go to shoes. These things are an ultimate trail shoe, good support, stiff sole, and a light weight, breathable upper. They are extremely comfortable, and will take the place of my 5.10 Hellcats as my daily driver. I will hold on to those for full on lift serviced days, but the Mavics are going to be my most ridden shoe.
the 9.5's fit as they should, I generally measure between a 9 and 9.5 on the Brannock and prefer a snug fit in my shoes.
Buy em, they are yellow.

I purchased the Cyclone jacket to be a mid-level piece between my long sleeve jersey and my Gore soft shell jacket. This thing does not disappoint. I have ridden it in a variety of conditions from chilly sunny days (50 deg) with a sleeveless summer weight base layer (mountain biking) to low 40 degree temperatures with a 150 weight merino top one day and a craft winter weight base layer another, and it is a totally versatile piece. It breathes extremely well and was only chilly on the descents.

I have not tried it in any foul weather or any precipitation, but assume it would preform admirably during a light drizzle.
I initially ordered a Large, but at 6 ft, 200 lbs, the XL just fit better and allowed for a bit looser

I distinctly remember wasting time in elementary school reading BMX PLUS! and lusting over the Diamondback Reactors. (http://bmxmuseum.com/bikes/diamondback/24675)
Now, with Kelly McGarry's 72 ft backflip, 2nd place, and viewers choice award at the RedBull Rampage, they have rebuilt the brand into a formidable player.

I have been riding this bike for a month or so now, and have been greatly impressed. I knew Diamondback still had it, and that they would come back and produce great bikes again. This is one of those bikes. Stiff aluminum frame and a great (105 level for around a grand? YES). This bike is a great entry level cross racer, a one bike quiver, or a gravel adventure bike. I have since upgraded the seatpost and saddle to some personal preference parts, but the stock build will get you and keep you rolling for years.

I have put about 200 miles on it so far, both on and off road, and have found myself wanting to ride back on the road more and more. The frame is confidence inspiring and solid, and wide tires and disc brakes make descending both more fun and more "spicy" because of brakes that feel like brakes. Discs on road bikes are here to stay and I will only ride them from here on out.

Fit and finish of this bike is on par with bigger names, and the price can't be beat. I'm looking forward to getting a nicer set of wheels, as with bikes in this price range, thats usually the one component selection to suffer. It is a bit heavy to keep up with the fit roadies I work with, but I'm probably having more fun. I can't wait to do some bikepacking, gravel adventures, and longer rides next summer, and this race (http://www.vermontoverland.com/vogp) but with single digit temps, its trainer time.

Keep it simple. Simple, functional, and durable. This chain is a great option for 10 speed drive trains. While it may not have the nicest coating or lightest weight, it will get you home and be a solid, reliable component.

this is a great bar. Short drop, shallow bend, comfy grip in lots of positions, and the price is right! Suprisingly light for the price, and stiff enough for the casual rider.

Comfy, classic, and easy to install, this tape makes me wax poetic of days of downtube shifters and mustaches. Its a good thing only the former has gone the way of the dinosaur. This stuff works as it should and is timeless.

You are keeping the stand in one location. I generally take my stand with me to races and camping and this becomes just a bit of a nuisance in those situations, but it is definitely attached when my stand is at home. A great add on.
