Rich F's Bio

I was just a kid from the Midwest when I moved to Utah to attend the University of Utah in 2006. I started with Backcountry that same fall, and am still here loving it just as much as day one. My main hobby is skiing, whether it's spinning laps at PC, or a long tour in LCC, I can't ski enough. During the other seasons I hike, bike, run and play with my pupper, Carlos.

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.

I've been a Spy fan for a long time, so I'm stoked to see that they're making a couple models of sport shades. They are perfect for cycling, or any time I need a pair of shades that will stay put on my face a little better. The arm and nose pads are incredibly grippy which is definitely necessary if I get the least bit sweaty.

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.
