Salt Lake City/Park City

Rich F's Bio

My story is not uncommon for those living in Salt Lake City. I moved here in 2006 to ski/go to school. I finished up the school thing, so now I just ski, hike, bike (road and mountain and bar), fly fish, backpack, surf when I can get away, and enjoy the mountains.

When I'm not outside, you can find me working in the Competitive Cyclist Retail Store at 2607 S. 3200 W., in Salt Lake City. Come on in and check it out! We have a full-service shop, Santa Cruz demo fleet and the best assortment of bikes around!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'll start off with sizing. I'm 5'5", 150 lbs with broad shoulders. The medium fits me perfectly. The fit of this item was definitely created with cycling in mind. The sleeves are a little longer so they still provide sufficient coverage while pedaling, but it still looks great for casual use. I really love the fleece lined collar. Even when fully zipped it's comfortable and non-restrictive.
The pockets are minimal (one internal chest with audio hole, one external chest and one large back pocket. The pockets (while pretty minimal) are more than sufficient for my use and it keeps everything clean looking. If you're in the SLC area I definitely recommend stopping in the CC retail store and trying it on.

My new favorites, too!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought these for a number of reasons. First, I own the Commuter 511 shorts and loved the material and fit. Second, these were available in a 32x30 which is somewhat rare. I ordered the "wine tasting" color, which I surprisingly like more than I thought.
The fit is great! Slim but not too tight. I have pretty large thighs, and these still fit well. They are made of the rigid denim, which kind of feels weird at first but they broke in nicely.
Overall, I couldn't be happier with these, especially at the sale price!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought these mainly because of the price. I don't consider myself an avid cyclist by any means, but the 15 or 20 times I go a summer makes it worth it to have road specific shoes. After a few uses, no blisters and still having enough money in my pocket to feed myself, I couldn't be happier.
The sole is stiff enough for your normal recreational rider. The tongue configuration is designed to work with the velcro straps, so you don't get any bunching. I like that.

The attachment system on these is nice because it will work with a HUGE range of factory side rails.
I put them on a 2014 Subaru Forester and they went on in a snap. It makes a loud "click" sound when you've reached the appropriate tightness when attaching, so it takes the guesswork out of it.
I'm 100% confident that they're on there and not going anywhere.

Also, if you have a newer car, don't dull it down with the classic round or square bars. Aesthetically (and audibly) the Aero bars are just far superior.

This bike is great for it's intended purpose. I'm 5'5" and went with the 52cm size. It's about perfect for me. I have it set up as a fixie and it's way efficient for around Salt Lake City. I can charge up most hills without much of a problem. The gearing makes it more difficult to skid stop, but the front brake gets the job done super well. I couldn't ask for a better bike for around town that I can pound on for the price.
