She was in need of a new tank to wear hiking. Also, she wanted something to wear in Moab biking. This is what I call a twofer.
Two-for-one uses. the Media pocket is nice because now I won't have to carry her phone. She is stoked on the material and the wicking properties in this tank.

This shirt is rad. The fit is awesome. the material is super comfy and this can be worn in any occasion. We bought this for the intention of biking only, but nay, this will be used for about everything possible that has to do with being active. It is a little longer too, so while she is biking it stays down to the waist.
Fits true to size.

Finally got some bike shorts for the lady. These fit great, a little lose around the hips to allow for a chamois and some flex while pedaling. The length is right at the knee. the material is super light and breathable. the pockets are deep, to carry a select item or two.
with the adjustable waist, these will be awesome to wear around when not on the trail.

6' 200lbs I bought the XL. The length is great, as it does not ride up past my waist while riding. The sleeves are a little shorter, similar to a XC style rather than freeride. The material is what is killer here, great movement and breathability. It also looks fine as a t-shirt if I wanted to wear it around on the hot summer days.

These are heavy duty gloves. Perfect for DH or some flowy trail. I don't use them if I am XC or climbing because they don't vent well, and don't have the greatest flexibility if I am in and out of bags/pockets/phone/etc. They protect if you lay down the bike and use your hand to catch you, or if you get to close to a branch.

I usually wear a 36 waist, and if I can I try to get a looser fit. So I went with the XL rather than the L. The length is fine, the material is awesome, the vents and pockets are all a plus, but the waist is super tight. buy larger than you normally wear.

Longer sleeves to help with elbow pads, or to keep you protected.
Material is top notch. Super comfy and breathable. I've worn this lapping the chair lifts, and also on some XC/DH and it never got soaked or uncomfortable to wear. The baseball cut is a huge plus for me, especially if you are up and down a lot, it keeps you covered. It also helps you ride better because you look awesome in it. Everyone knows you ride better when you look good.

This is a good basic floor pump. Easy to use. Looks good in the dining room next to my bikes and dining room table.
I appreciate the screw on nozzle valve and the pressure bleeder
If you are looking for a basic at home pump this is a great choice. I can take it with me on trips, but it isn't ideally small or easy to break down if I were taking it on a comp/race.

bought an 11 thinking large, but they are xl. So they must run big or are mislabeled. these are bulkier than I thought they would be. Good grip though. I like the high wrist to go under or over your jacket sleeve.

I usually use a U lock ( http://www.hucknroll.com/planet-bike-super-guard-u-lock-standard ) for my bike. But when I'm rollin with a crew out and about I need a bigger lock. I went with this. It's burly, a lot heavier and thicker than I expected. Not something I can roll around my cross bar, now I always throw it in my pack. tubular lock is a pro/con at the same time, if someone knows what they are doing then they'll get it, but that is the case with any lock. Hopefully this deters someone or delays them long enough for us to catch them.
I use this for my mountain bike too, when I need to lock it in the back of my truck. ( I still haven't upgraded to a lockable rack ) I'm using the Yakima Bettyjo rack.
