nice bars and at the price from h&r/cl, they are unbeatable.
i've always like easton bars, but went from those (711, dh carbon) to the 711 sunline. small penalty in weight, but the carbons were getting old.
then moved to the 745 length. didn't seem like much difference visually, but i was more conscious of it through tight spots. handling was very good.
downside is the weight of the 38/745. big jump from the 38/711 or the 19/745's, but the weight penalty of these bars are worth it. would have to go carbon to make a significant difference.
so, cl, how about a 750mm carbon dh bar?
very nice, tough, utilitarian looking stem.
there have been a number of reviews with bolt issues, or the bar not on tight enough (mtbr). it is true that the bolts are small, at least relative to the bolts on my easton havoc stem.
to resolve the bolt issue put some (teflon) grease on bolt threads to prevent binding. it's easy enough to then tighten sufficiently.
it's a very good stem- light and strong. bomb-proof thus far.
although i've not had any issues with this stem, minus 1 star for those who've had bolts break or afraid to tighten sufficiently and had their bars move.
looks very cool too.
nice skate shoes with 5.10 grip. holds pedals well, but not a stiff sole so the 5.10 impacts are better for mtn biking. these shoes are best for skatepark, urban and trial riding, dj, or skateboarding.
These are DH or rock garden shorts, not enduro XC/trail shorts (those are their Raptor shorts). Made with ripstock in front areas (tan colored areas), and a much tougher set of materials for the sides and back (most of the black color- except for the front). A bit too burly for a long ride, but very tough if you ride hard or just tend to hit things. Also good in the cooler seasons. Great attention to detail, excellent liner, and even smooth cloth under the knee area so pads to get hung up, vents front and rear, two zippered front pockets, over the knee length, but not too long. You won't rip these.Jett Gear supplies the Yeti Team. High price, but pro gear- not posers with just a fancy logo to buy into.
These tend to run big, so if you're not sure, size down.
..well, these aren't short shorts! Unlike some of the youth shorts these are nice and long with good pockets and padded liner. Much better than tidy whities under shorts.
First real bike shorts my son has owned and he loves 'em. Most of the guys I take him riding with are 20+ years older than him, so now he feels more like one of the boys with his cool Fox shorts. Seems pretty true to size, except that my son is pretty thin and surprisingly the liner fits prefect. If your son is more along the average weight category or higher for his age, you may want to try a size up.
Got myself this for Xmas (from my kids), so haven't tried it yet on a ride.
I'm 5'9", 165lbs, 39-40" chest and the Med fit perfect. It's a nice loose cut, which I like, and tons of venting- great for SoCal. The short-sleeves are longer than others and the shirt looks well made.
I got the white and the green is not as subdued as in the pics. My son saw it when I tried it on and loved the 'toothpaste-green' color. The collar is wide and good for getting air, with the whole thing kinda giving a poncho sort of look. My wife laughed, but that's not a bad thing. :)
Just got this jersey, so haven't tried it in the field yet. Also got the Dakine Chop Shop jersey as well. The Chop Shop is roomier than this one by a bit, probably allowing for armor. This one is more like a T-shirt, but poly material for wicking. Vents under the pits a good plus.
I'm 5'9", 165lbs, chest 39-40" (40" in suit jacket) and the medium fits well, but I prefer the slightly roomier Chop Shop, or this in a large. If you're thin (I'm not) and like a T-shirt look, go with the sizing. If you like roomier, or wear armor, go up a size.
I'm impressed with these 2 jerseys. Very well made, like my Nomad hydropak, and a steal at H&R pricing.
Just got this jersey, but haven't ridden with it yet. Like my Dakine Nomad hydro-pack this looks very well made with good attention to detail. I'm 5'9" and 165lbs chest 39-40" (40"suit jacket) and the med fits well. Could have also gone with the large no-problem, especially if with armor.
I particularly like the mesh vents down the side, which are hard to see in the pics, but great for riding here in SoCal.
Great Value!! Trying it out right after I get it for Xmas. :)
