Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've tried Sidi wires, Shimano R320's, Vittoria Evo Horas, and many others. These are the best shoes I've ever tried. They weren't the best right out of the box but after a few heat moldings they are amazing. I heat molded them, rode about 70 miles, heat molded them again, rode another 50-70 miles, and then heat molded them again. They get better and better. The bath tub shape is crazy stiff too. No wonder guys like Bradley Wiggins and Rui Costa used Bont.

I've had a few of these now. They last a long time, shift smoothly, and look great (although the gold becomes a little dull towards the end of their life). The quick link is great too. Makes cleaning and maintenance a breeze. I've broken Sram and Shimano chains but I haven't had a KMC break yet.

I've had these brakes on my bike , Intense 951, for over a year now. They did great all summer long in the bike park. I'd highly recommend them to anyone. Easy to setup, great modulation, and they last a while before needing to be bled.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I tried a pair of these but they didn't work because the pad was sewn to far forward. This resulted in my sit bones sitting on the chamois stitching, which resulted in chaffing and an padded (uncomfortable feel). I wish manufactures would use a bigger pad in the bigger size shorts. I used a size XL. The rest of the shorts felt good though, although they are little too long for my liking. I prefer my short to not touch my knee caps.

Myself and a friend cannot get our shifter cables to last more than a couple weeks before the shifter cable head pops off. I saw online that Shimano has released 9001 model shifters. Shimano won't recall our defective shifters either. They gave us a couple of free cables. Not acceptable when paying top dollar.

I ordered a pair of these and the construction and look is top notch. Giro did a great a job on these shoes. Unfortunately I had to send them back because of the really narrow width. I normally use Northwave but these Giro shoes are too narrow for my foot (both the toe box and around the ball of my foot). I'd say they fit real close to Mavic's in width.

Giro, you need to make a wide model if you are going to make narrow shoes!!!

This helmet is super comfy and well made. I had a Giro aeon before and this one is much better. The airflow is great the strap in the back is comfy and easy to adjust. The leather chin strap is nice and soft and also has a high end look to it.

Odd bibs. The strap were really long and loose, this made them slide down like short do. The chamois pad covered my front well but it didn't go far enough back to completely cover my sit bones. Also the logos started coming off after a couple of rides. I've tried Castelli, Mavic, Giordana, and Pearl Izumi. These Craft bibs were the worst and my last pair from Craft.
