Shawn Craig's Bio

Love skiing, mountain biking, hiking, backpacking and pretty much any outdoor activity. Recently I have really gotten into running rivers and have also just started to get back into running following some knee surgeries.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This has been a great tire and I've ridden everything from pavement to loose gravel. It definitely excels on well graded packed gravel roads and pavement. The 35c width offers pretty good cushion when things get a little rough. Although the 120 TPI version would probably be a bit more supple. These tires appear to be durable as hell and are showing very little wear.

These bibs are pretty good. They're definitely not the most comfortable but not terrible. The POC logo on the rear of the left leg pealed off on the first ride. This doesn't really bother me but it may others. For the price, I'd probably buy something different knowing what I know now.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've ridden the High Roller IIs on 26" and 27.5" wheels and liked them. I recently put these on my 29er and they feel a bit twitchy on the front. I've been running the Ardent in a 2.4 but decided to go with a more aggressive grip for a trip to Downieville. I've been having a hard time getting used to them and may just go back to the Ardent I was running.

That being said, these would probably work really well in dusty loose dry conditions.

I have had nerve issues and these grips have fixed that. They are great for long rides and rides of any distance if other grips give you discomfort. If you suffer from hand discomfort or nerve issues with standard grips, I highly recommend giving these a try. It can take a little bit to get the correct angle but don't be afraid to adjust them initially.

I really like these. They're cut well for pedaling. I wouldn't necessarily put them down as a relaxed fit. I found them to be more regular fit to fitted in the areas around your saddle. This is great for pedaling and keeps you from getting hung up on your seat. Great pockets and I like the zip vents in the front. They run true to size.

These shorts are great. The venting is a nice touch. They have two standard hand pockets in the front with a zipped front hand pocket as well. They run true to size and are definitely on the relaxed fit side of things. They have plenty of length to ensure there is no gap with pads.

I just got these. I prefer bibs under my baggies for moutain biking and these are great. The chamois is very comfortable, and I've done up to 50 mile days on it without issue.

I really like the light and airy feel of the mesh body of the bibs. Keeps things cooler than wearing a traditional bib under your shorts.

I was inbetween sizes (M and L). My waist measurement seemed to fit the M but height seemed more towards the L. I went with the L and I'm glad I did. They fit great.

This was my first foray into the Gluten Free Waffles from Honey Stinger. I purchased the Cinamon and they taste great. They seem to have a little softer texture than the regular Honey Stinger Waffles.
These are easy to eat while on the bike and are easy on the GI system. Highly recommend them when you need a quick sugary burst of energy.

These are on par with Ergon Grips at a better price point. I got these for my girl friend as she was having nerve issues. She loves them. I currently run Ergon's and will probably be giving these a try once I need to make the switch.
