Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've only been able to get out on this new powermeter a couple times as it is Feb but the initial set up and apparent accuracy of the system is great. I paired this system with a Garmin Edge 500 and the system picket the cranks right up and have not given me any troubles. I love how I do not need to mount a magnet on my frame to capture cadence! I have a PF30 Ti frame and I do not have an easy mount for a magnet without pulling the PF shell. I also use an SRM on my road bike and based on my percieved exertion the systems mirror eachother very closely.

I've only been able to get out on these for a couple rides as it is still winter where I live but my initial impressions are that this shifter has a solid, positive throw that makes for a confidence inspiring shifter. After riding on XX1 for the last 2-3 years I appreciate the lever feel these provide and the ergonomics of the push/pull levers is incredible.

It's winter here but I've been able to put a couple good rides on these brakes in combination with the RT-99 Freeza rotors. First impressions are that these are very powerful, with a consistent power that does not fade under heavy braking- 20-30minutes with rock drops and decreasing radius switchbacks. My last pair of XTR 985 race brakes worked flawlessly for over 3 years with the only maintenance being changing the brake pads a couple times per season!

Great frame for every day hammering!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've tested this frame off and on for over 2 years and I keep coming back to it for its smooth ride quality, efficient power transfer and stable geometry. I finished Leadville 100 last year in under 9 hours and I have to say this bike was a dream to ride on all day due to its comfort and power transfer. But dont just trust me, take a look at this review as well- http://www.outsideonline.com/outdoor-gear/gear-shed/cycle-life/The-Six-Month-Test-Merlin-XLM-29.html
