These are great for those of us who are constantly breaking tire levers. They're super strong. On the other hand, they're a little bulky to sneak in the pocket while riding but work great for around the shop/home/garage or where ever you overhaul your ride. Also, I don't think I'll ever lose these suckers cause they're a nice bright color. I think Pedros has done a great job addressing the two main reason we need new levers - we've either lost them or broken them. These are a great little buy.
Pedros is AWESOME. This Ice Wax is great for Utah riding where it's always nice and dry. I've used White Lightning for years and find this very comparable. However, the Ice Wax scores some points by being a little thicker when applying. White Lightning can squirt all over while the ice wax sticks to it for better application. I HIGHLY recommend this stuff to ANYONE for mountain or road.
Glove is simply a pull-on type glove which is super-easy to get on and then has some stirrups on the center and pinky fingers which you can grab for easy pull off. Only problem with the gloves is that the stirrups get in the way creating a little lump while holding onto the bar and also irritate in between the fingers. This can become quite sore after an hour or so. Other than that, the padding is placed exactly where you need it while in the hoods, the gloves breathe well, and are well constructed.
Great tire...hooks up on everything. It's great in sand, mud, and holds it's own on hardpack. A couple downsides are that they're a little heavier than some and they lose all tacky-ness when it's cold outside...definitely a warm-weather tire.
These work just like they're supposed to...nothing unexpected. However, a few words of caution: Don't leave the bike on the rack for an extended period of time in the sun, I've seen them leave black "o" shaped marks in the paint of a few bikes. Also, when you remove your bike from the rack, take the chain straps off and stow them in the car...people like to take off with 'em.
I've ridden Bontrager 26 x 1.75-2.125 tubes for years at least until now. I've usually spent $5-$8 bucks a pop depending on the day on other tubes and I can get these for $4 and free shipping if I grab 'em with some other goodies. They're not the most compact but I'm usually not worried about that mtn biking. At 165 grams they're not the lightest, but they're not that bad when you're average tube is usually around 200 grams (for this size). They're great quality, super durable and sell for an excellent price. I'd recommend them to everyone and besides, at this price...why use a patch, just throw in a new tube!
