Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was blessed to get the only eTap groupset my LBS received in March. The shifting has been precise, responsive, and confident. I quickly became aware of a couple of unexpected benefits. When you need to slow or stop quickly (such as at a red light) it is very easy to shift up to an easy gear while remaining fully in control of braking, making re-acceleration much easier. I noticed a massive improvement in overall shifting precision during a crit race on a technical course that included a 180 degree hairpin turn - I could brake late while still having very precise control of my gear selection, allowing my to stay fast going into the turn and accelerate efficiently coming out of the turn. Since installation I have had to adjust the indexing one time - it was quick & easy to do and worked perfectly. I now also get my gear data from eTap sync'd to my Garmin Edge, which is interesting. Overall I am very happy.

I was looking for something reliable. I found it in these Vred TriComps. Paired with Zipp 404s at 120 psi, these have been confident and durable. I rotated the tires a while ago (can't recall the mileage) but they are still going strong at 3,060 miles. I ride on flat Florida roads so not a lot of heavy braking for me.

I was initially shocked at how tight these gloves seemed to fit, and wondered if I was sent the wrong size (I ordered Large). They feel small when putting them on and taking them off -BUT - once they are on the fit is, at least for me, absolutely perfect. The padding is not excessive, but is a great balance between grip/feel and protection. These gloves 'disappear' on long rides. These are my go-to gloves, a great all-rounder that I'd highly recommend.
