I recently purchased two of these cages for my new Cannondale Synapse carbon 3 road bike. The cages are lightweight, strong and look sharp. The water bottles slide in and out of the cage easily and are held in tight by a small rubber foot at the bottom of the cage. I have also noticed that vibration is not a problem for these cages. The only complaint is that when tightening the cage bolts during installation, the carbon cage twists and must be realigned after the bolts are secured.

I Recently replaced the stock Maxxis Columbire tires on my Cannondale Synapse Carbon 3 bike with a pair of the Hutchinson Intensive Kevlar Hardskins. These tires weigh about 15g more then the Maxxis. However, the Hutchinson's have a much smoother and quieter ride. Traction and high speed stability on dry roads is very good. I don't have enough mileage on the Hutchinson's to rate the mileage claim (6000km) or puncture resistence. However, so far I like them very much.

8/10/10 Update - I have been riding the tires for 8500+ miles and have not had a single flat! I have been getting about 5000 miles on the front tires and 2500 on the rear. Had one rear tire that got a snake bike (likely a sharp rock) in the sidewall that had to be replaced early. The tire didn't blow but must have damaged some cords in the sidewall enough to create a bulge. Great training tires though! Maybe a little heavy for racing.

I shopped around quite a bit before selecting this helmet. This one seemed to fit my mellon the best and was lite and confortable. The helmet keeps your head cool on hot days and has good air flow. Some of the veins are reenforced with carbon, which adds strength and looks sharp. Great value for the money compared to other high end offerings. I have a medium, which weighs 310g dispite the Bell site claims of 280g.

I have both full fingered and fingerless Elite Gel Vent Gloves. Both are lite weight. The full fingured gloves keep your hands worm whem it's cool and the fingerless gloves stay cool when it's warm. Nice snug fit. However, I found that the sizing chart seems to be off by one full size. I measured a Large but the XL fits perfectly.
