I got the POC Index Air Adjustable Gloves about a month ago and have had them out for 15 rides so far. I am quite pleased so far, as they fit nice and snug, breathe well through the top of the hand, and the silicone print allows me to use my iPhone without taking off my gloves - making finding just the right song nice and easy. So far, so good.

I got the Smith Forefront Helmet roughly a month ago and am very pleased with my purchase so far. The Forefront is a very comfortable helmet right out of the box, with only minimal tweaks needed to dial-in the fit. You can move the VaporFit retention system in the back by snapping it out and moving it up or down. Personally, I moved it down a notch, so when I tightened the click wheel, it was properly secured at the lower-back part of my head.
The honeycomb Aerocore makes this a very protective, yet light and breathable lid, and the adjustable visor is a nice touch - I have been pushing it up and out of my line of sight on especially steep climbs. All in all, I would highly recommend the Smith Forefront to anyone looking for a new cross country or enduro mountain bike helmet.

I've been running the Ergon ge1 grips for a few years now and really like their ergonomic shape and slightly larger feel compared to other, more basic lock-on grips. Durability has been superb and the single Allen bolt lock on has never given me trouble on my carbon bars. If you're looking for a nice, ergonomic grip that works well for everything from XC to freeride mountain biking, I highly recommend the Ergon GE1 Grips.

I've had my Bronson CC for a couple months now, and am extremely pleased with my choice. Living here in UT, it's important to have a versitile mountain bike to handle the varrying terrain - so far, the Santa Cruz Bronson CC is up to the task and taking it all in stride. Yesterday, I decided to extend my cross-country loop and headed over to the terrain park - I rode up to the top of the park, and back down the freeride trail without having to even put a foot down, just a couple suspension/seat height adjustments mid-pedal, and I was good to go.
The Bronson II is the most capable bike I've had the pleasure of riding thus far. My previous bike was a Tallboy LTc for reference (a great bike, but I am really appreciating the 27.5 wheels on the Bronson). I am 6'2 and got the Large - the size chart says I could go L or XL - personally, I like the added flickability of the Large frame and haven't noticed any stability issues.

The RockShox Reverb Dropper Post is probably the best thing I have bought for myself all year, it's truly a game-changer. While it's relatively easy to justify not buying one, I can assure you that if you do decide to pull the trigger, you will not be disappointed; you'll be wondering why it took you so long to make the decision. Having the ability to customize the seat height mid-ride is what it's all about - you'll be faster on the downhills and just as fast on the ups.

I've been riding the Vittoria Barzo TNT tire on the front of my Santa Cruz Tallboy LTc for the last couple weeks and am quite impressed by it's traction on loose-over-hard conditions (much of what we find in the rockies). The 2.25 has pretty good volume for it's size, and I haven't been left wanting for a wider option as of yet.

The Dynafit Traverse Durastretch shorts are my new favorite mountain bike shorts for all types of riding. They are made out of a fantastic softshell material that has tons of stretch, is soft on the interior and durable on the exterior. The length is perfect for me, just covering the tops of my knees, but not getting in the way behind my knees, thanks to the scalloped cut around the hem - essentially, the shorts are slightly longer in the front than they are in the back. The adjustable Velcro on the waist allows for a great fit and the pockets are well sized and placed appropriately. I would highly recommend these shorts to any mountain biker looking for a well-thought-out mountain bike short to wear over their favorite chamois.

The Whiskey River Hybrid shirt is comfortable and functional - wear it commuting to the office and keep it on when you arrive. The DWR coating is great for commuting in the fog/mist or when you spill your beer - it slides right off. The large fits me well - I'm 6'2" 185.
