Familiarity: I've used it several times

This pump is far better than the floor pump I've been using.
* Its nice to have an easy to view gauge that has accurate 1 PSI increments. I've read reviews saying that the gauge doesn't start at a low enough PSI for fat bike tires, but I don't have a fat bike so this is a non-issue for me.
* Its high volume inflates my 2.4 mtn bike tires quickly & easily.
* I haven't tried seating a new tubeless tire yet, but anticipate the process being much easier than with my previous pump.
* It comes with the Lezyne Speed Chuck which doesn't always mate well with my presta valves to form a tight seal when pumping. If you hold it in place it seems to be fine though. I'll likely purchase the Lezyne ABS2 Chuck HV to replace the Speed Chuck. I've never used the ABS2 Chuck HV, but I'd hope that it would create a nice, hands free seal.
* MSRP is $75. I bought it at $63 and consider it excellent value. As I write this review Backcountry.com has it on sales at $45. If you're in the market for a new MTN Bike specific floor pump pull the trigger!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I used this pack for mountain biking and day hikes. It was the perfect size for its 70oz bladder, a few tools/tube, plus room for a layer or two. But, over time the area along the bladder's zipper pocket seam ripped. Eventually so it was 4" wide. Hopefully this is just a defect for my specific pack as it was great otherwise.

nsirotawrote a question about on January 28, 2013

I have a 2013 Subaru Outback and a 2010...

I have a 2013 Subaru Outback and a 2010 Trek/Gary Fisher HiFi Deluxe. I think that I'll have to use a a Yakima TubeTop bike frame adapter due to the non-standard top tube of my 29er mountain bike. With the big 29" wheels and the additional loss of height from the adapter bar my question is whether my tires will hang too low to the ground? Thoughts?

I got a these shorts a while ago and liked them so much I got a second pair. They perform well on the trails, dry fast, and are stylish enough to wear out to a casual dinner. My only knock on them is minor, but I find that the Velcro waist size adjuster doesn't always stay put... and if you have it set to allow maximum space the Velcro can feel scratchy against your skin. I'd still buy a 3rd pair despite minor inconvenience though.

I've been using these shorts for about 6 weeks now and am still loving them. The plaid color scheme I got is stylish to wear out to dinner and they perform well on the trails. They dry fast, stretch where they need to, and and provide just the right amount of room. They're not skater baggy/long or hipster/old guy skinny/short. They also have a cloth for cleaning sunglasses lenses in the front right leg pocket which I use more then I thought I would. Also, I wasn't sure if I'd like the snapping belt, but I actually prefer it on rides now vs other shorts that have Velcro adjustable waist size straps on the waist line.
