Familiarity: I've used it several times

Picked this jacket up when it was about $55 because spring has been abnormally wet. Wasn't stoked on the yellow and reflectors because it is for mountain biking, but I am not into paying triple the price for style when the function isn't guaranteed. Sizing is always a problem for me typically need a large body with arms and shoulders of XL. This thing at XL fits like a glove. It's trim through the body and the arms are almost a little too long, but that's ok with me. I've had it in the rain a few times now and it's 100% water proof and breaths really well. Was caught in heavy rain, hail, lightning at about 9500' yesterday and top half of me was dry when we got out. Thought I'd miss the hood, but really don't think I'd use it anyway in this application. If you're built a like an ape mutant and spend time in wet weather this jacket is a score. Let your riding speak to your style while this little burst of sunshine keeps your a$$ dry. The stow away mud flap is clutch!

Really dig these shorts. I bought them for trail riding in wet weather and they are great for that. But, the waterproof rear insert (mudflap I call it) isn't quite water proof. The test on this was caught in thunder snow rain shit mix and descending a couple miles in a single track turned piss flume. The shorts are like a soft shell ski jacket material / weight and hang just below the knee. Super bitchen for what I bought them for. Would not want to ride them trail / xc in warm weather. I would say they are definitely true to size but are a bit long, they are free ride shorts. The waist adjusters are really good and don't get blown out after a couple Sonic burritos in the a.m. And, the outer mudflap covers my tattoo of your mom and looks like an old Venom album cover. I am buying another pair. Check 'em out.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

for durability:weight:cost these pedals take it. Have used them, multiple pairs, for several seasons. I make sure to clean and lube them once in a while and they keep rolling. Only issue was a couple years ago had a pedal body come off the spindle and it wasn't an easy repair. Ended up getting them warrantied and no probs with the replacement pair. They withstand rockstrikes from time to time as well that have crushed other pedals. At $69 bucks it's a no-brainer. I've paid $89 as well and still a hot deal. Wouldn't pay full retail on these. I think there's better for that kind of money. Overall a solid and clean looking pedal.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Haven't bought this yet, but plan on it. It looks awesome and I've been looking for something with just one wheel that's not a touring trailer for a while. I have to comment though on the statement about 42x16 being easily pedaled by a child. Hilarious, I hope my kid can push a 42x16 single on dirt, Olympics here we come!

I do love HNR but gotta say my experience with this shoe is exactly the opposite of pretty much everybodies post. My buddy as well has the same experience with this shoe. Shoe seems to be quite high volume. So much so that although it is really adjustable I can't adjust it to my low volume foot. It's maxed and the velcro is stretched in a half season. Got these at the end of last season and already have to replace them. The buckles bent and tread is ripping off the outside. I ride close to 100 miles a week in the season, but it's been winter so theses jammies have been on vacation. The reviews I read pre-order said made in Italy and the product description says custom insole or something to that effect. Of course I didn't really expect that, but it's not even a bad attempt. It's a straight up 1/8" piece of crappy foam that says "custom" on it. SWEET! Anyway, I put a moldable foot bed in and it worked for a while. Definitely made in China. Sadly it shows. Didn't send them back sooner because I thought I'd get a season out of these bad boys but they are so clapped out after half a season they gotta go. My buddy Adam with club feet will likely inherit these as spares. You need a 13 EEE to wear the 12. Or maybe I just got a shot of the R.O.C.s finest QA/QC. Sounds like that probably. Crazy how much people like these shoes. Not being pricky, but are those reviews from guys that ride 10 miles on Saturday afternoon? I doubt it. I'm just saying I'm totally amazed how bad I think these shoes are. Spend another 40 bucks. Worst shoes owned. Bbbrrrppp bbrrrppp.
