Familiarity: I've used it several times

I original used Look cleats but moved to Speedplay cleats about 3 yrs. ago. Of course, getting used to the cleat took some time, but I am so glad I did. The cleats themselves our an easy install once I realized I couldn't over-tighten the cleat screws. Over tightening the screws makes it impossible for the cleat mechanism to work with the pedal. In addition, I have specifically bought Speedplay ready shoes to take advantage of the very low stack height compared to the Looks I used to use. I really enjoy the fact that because the pedal itself is two sided, it's a very easy on and off. The cleat is low maintenance. They require a special lube every couple thousand miles. And because the cleat is covered with an aero cover at all times, they are easy to walk on and don't damage the cleat. The Zero cleat simply means that the cleat can be adjusted from 0 to 15 degrees of movement. The cleats I bought are actually my 3rd pair, as I bought an additional two pair of Speedplay ready shoes. Wearing Speedplay ready shoes require a protective shim. It protects the carbon of the shoe as the pedal is inserted into the cleat. They are a separate buy. When attaching the cleats to a non-Speedplay ready shoe, you must install a baseplate and additional shims, depending on the shoe. Those items are included in the cleat purchase. As a tip...when I went with the idea of switching to Speedplay cleats, I got on YouTube and found a lot of great information that helped me with the learning curve.

RIde mtb 3 to 4 days a week and needed a cool, comfortable and tough jersey. Read as many reviews as I could find and settled on the Fox. Jersey has met all expectations. It's the kind of apparel I like to wear...I don't think about it at all during my rides allowing me to focus on what ever the trail I'm on. Jesey is true to size, quality construction and looks good on the trail!

Have been throwing my bikes in back of my truck while hoping they didn't get scratched or damaged. Most mounting systems included drilling and my truck bed liner didn't help. Saw the Thule truck system, read the reviews and ordered one. Best thing I could have done. Used it right out of the box. Fast and easy to install. My bike was secure and easily road the bumps and curves as I drove. When I was done with my bicycling, I just uninstalled the system in a matter of a couple of minutes and put it in the back seat of my truck for my next trip. Will be buying a second one, now that I've tested the system and it's easy of installation, compatibility w/my bikes and secure way of cradling them. Finally...RealCyclist is not kidding when they advertise "wicked fast" delivery. And the free delivery met a savings after shopping around and realizing the system was priced about the same everywhere else!

Glove fit and performance in 50 degree weather has been awesome. Glove kept me warm and dry on several wet rides of over a couple of hours. Very happy RealCyclist customer. Every transaction with RC has been easy, as advertised items and great shipping speed and packaging! By the way, the discount certificate received from prior purchase helped with last purchase and is greatly appreciated!!!!

I can't imagine how I got so lucky! Bought the jacket at a great price and hoped that it would meet my needs. Well, my needs on the trail were surpassed on my most recent ride. I started an early evening ride in the low 50's and into the ride it started pouring. I wondered how warm and dry I would be as the ride and rain continued. I know that the jacket was not advertised as water proof, but after a 2 hour ride I was both warm and dry. I instantly came home and bought a pair of gore gloves as well. Congratulations on a great performing jacket.

I've ridden with these bibs for the last 8 months and can truthfully say that in my opinion, they have been great performers. I ride a hard tail mountain bike and these are the bibs I always prefer to ride. They are comfortable...leg band keeps them in comfortable position, chamois has maintained its integrity well, material stays cool on hot mountain rides, straps are comfortable and material keeps me cool. Have had several spills, but bibs have handle them without any problems. That's great, as I can be tough on my bibs. Additionally, I haven't had an issue as yet with the logo. I must be luckier than some of the other reviewers.
