My bike came with a 32t that I don't feel I'm quite in shape for when climbing so I decided to buy a 28t to swap it out with. They're pretty easy to change (if you have the tools) and I'm very pleased in the difference so far!
I have a Reverb Stealth on my other bike and love it so much that I decided to get one for both. Price had held me back in the past but the convenience really is worth it. The upside down mounting suggested by others is a great idea. Make sure you buy the right seat post diameter.
I considered both the cheaper Gateway and Archway models but settled on this for the strength and security it will provide despite the higher price tag. It fits my car well and I have great confidence in it. I particularly like that its locks to my car and includes a lockable cable. I also like how compactly it can be folded up when not in use.
I primarily ride lifts in season and the gel in these is a great addition to help lessen the blow from the amount of braking I find myself doing. They fit great, seem well constructed, and breathe better than I expected.
Bought this in green to match my Dark Green/Lime Green Bronson after hearing about them from a friend. They're reasonably priced and I'm very happy with their ability to absorb vibrations for a smoother ride. As noted on the packaging, using Windex when putting them on helps a ton. The only thing holding this review back from five stars is my concern about its durability.
I bought a Thrillium Jersey last summer and it's been great for mountain biking. I liked the Black/Blaze design of the Descent Jersey and decided to give it a try. It's fits great and has been working out well so far.
I kept accidentally unscrewing my cores while opening the valves to pump up my tires. This is a great tool to help make sure they're tightly fastened to begin with. It's also come in handy when removing and replacing them to top off my Stan's.
I've been on tubeless tires for about half a season now and love them. I particularly like being able to run at a lower tire pressure. I just picked up an extra bottle of Stan's to refill them as we move into mountain bike season.
Brakes are easy to change yourself. I mostly ride downhill and usually keep and extra set in my pack so I'm ready whenever one of mine's on the fritz. I prefer sintered pads for their longer life and don't mind the occasional screeching.
I've been wanting to get into more night biking and this is the perfect addition to help me do so in conjunction with the 275 lumen head lamp I also bought. This model was a great balance of brightness and price for my budget. I particularly like the variety of settings and the ability to recharge it with a micro USB.
I've already got this water bottle in the 1 liter size and liked it enough that I decided to get this one as well. I'm not much of a flip-down valve fan but a classic cap can be found here for a pretty reasonable price:
