I saw this flavor when grabbing my morning coffee, stashed it in my pocket and headed for first chair. After riding fresh all morning I was starting to get hungry and pulled this peanut butter, chocolate, trail mix bar out. It gave me enough boost to just keep spinning laps and getting as much fresh as I can. I loved the original Tram Bar and this is just as good if not better. All natural fuel that tastes great, you cant go wrong with these.

Maybe I got a bad batch, or maybe its the way they are, but I found these more difficult to stomach than other options. The one I had was incredibly cardboardy, think waffles left out all day, put in a refrigerator, then microwaved (that sort of texture).

I've tried the Lemon and the Strawberry. Preferred the Lemon, but I'd rather have one of the many other Honey Stinger products I actually like. It did give me a boost of energy, so it got the job done.

I got the PhD Cycle Ultra Light sock and decided to get something a bit higher for hiking and trail running. These are super thin and wick away the moisture extremely well. I have yet to get any blisters using these socks as they tend not to bunch or rub. Best socks I've ever owned. Treat your feet right and pick up a pair.

The past few seasons I started converting over most of my active wear to merino. The PhD Cycle Ultra Light's are fantastic for cycling or trail running (thought they seem to have more of a tendency to ride down if running) They kept my feet cool and dry in the summertime wicking away moisture quite well which helped keep me blister free. Highly recommended.

I've used this mount for mountain biking and skiing the past few seasons. Works really well with a ski pole (you just have to build up the shaft with some duct tape to get the right diameter). These mounts tend to crack after many uses (partially due to needing a tight clamp to prevent movement)

Yet another great mounting option from GoPro. This mount is sturdy and can take a beating. My only knock is more about the curved/flat mounts that couple with this for Smith Helmet integration. None of the mounts fit the curves of the medium helmets very well and as a result some modification is necessary. This is relevant to the front mount because this is where the curve is the most severely different. People will say you look pretty narcissistic...until they see your footage.

I've used this for biking, skiing, and trail running, though the best use so far has been downhill biking. I've had the Chesty since my first GoPro and its still holding up. I do find that its somewhat difficult to get it to tighten enough when skiing harder snow, which results in a lot of vibration (even with the shock mount). Add some different perspective to your POV footage!

If you film with a GoPro you already know by now that you will need spare batteries, lots of them if you film in the cold. Luckily GoPro sells spare rechargeable. I make sure to store all the batteries in my chest pocket to keep them as warm as possible. If you are religious about doing this you can rest assured that you will have plenty of battery left. Low rating is due to the fact the batteries have such poor life compared to the competition.
