Here's what others have to say...

I purchased these socks under the assumption they were going to be similar to the Assos Fugusocks (which are fantastic), but in a summer weight. The graphics are nice, but the quality really is subpar for Assos. The elastic isnt as nice as some other socks, and I'm constantly having to hike them back up over a longer ride. After a season of moderate use, the stitching is also fraying on one. For a better summer high sock I'd recommend the Swiftwick Aspire Sevens

If you have inner tubes with removable valve cores, pick these up and stop messing with those terrible regular valve extenders. These screw directly into the valve (with the valve core removed) and creates an actual extension to the stem.

Pair these with a nice tire like Michelin Pro Race, Conti Grand Prix 4000S, or Vittoria Evo Corsa, and you'll get the closest ride quality to a tubular possible. The valve cores are removable, so I'm using Tufo valve extenders to run on deep section wheels. Unlike butyl tubes, these do not stretch so make sure you get the right size for your tires.

Mainly a roadie, but I got this bike to dabble a bit off road. Comes with Shimano's workhorse series SLX drivetrain in a 3x10. SLX is mechanically very similar to Shimano's higher end XT and race level XTR, but a bit heavier at a fraction of the cost. A Rockshox Recon fork is a solid but not flashy part that does the job

The bike has a pretty long top tube compared to others in its range. I'm 5 foot 7 and am definitely on the smaller end of the size Small that i got.

A lot of 29ers I've ridden feel very unwieldy and cumbersome in the size Small (a lot of wheel compared to the frame), but the short chain stays and short stem quickens the handling and make it feel less like a 29er.

My biggest gripe about the bike is the Avid Elixir 3s and their feel/stopping power/noise, but realistically these brakes are way better than anything Tektro you'll usually get in a bike in this price range.

I'd recommend this bike to anyone who's looking to get a solid mountain bike to start with plenty of room to grow into, or someone who wants to try the whole 29er thing but isnt ready to commit a huge amount. I'm planning on getting a new set of wheels this year and maybe switching to some Shimano SLX or XT brakes, but overall its a great bike and I've been really pleased.

Shimano SPD style pedals have been around for years and there are a dozen different copied designs because it works so well. Not particularly light pedals, but 1/2 the price of XT pedals and 1/3 the price of XTR. Best value for your money in terms of mountain pedals, in my opinion. Double sided, with spring tension adjustments
