The tolerances on the machining of a King hub are unparalleled...period.
I bought this hub at a decent price and decided I wanted to build a wheel for the first time. "They" say you're not supossed to build an expensive first wheel. Well, I did, and I found out two things. I'm only building my own wheels from now on, and I'll only do it with King hubs! The build turned out great, and the hub is outstanding.
I like parts that last from one frame to another. This hub will go of many years of smooth riding.
Oh, the other awesome perk is the killer bee sound.
I purchased these so I wouldn't slam my colossal platforms into my shins. These are the first leg/shin pads I have ever purchased and so far, I would not buy a different pair. The cross strap system hold the pads in place while pedaling, jumping, etc. Venting is not too bad, minimal sweating. As far as protection, they seem pretty bomber...I haven't wrecked bad enough to really try the safety aspect yet. However, just having the pads has given me more confidence to go bigger and faster without fearing pedal smack or wicked road rash on my knees. I would recommend these pads to others!
I was surprised when I received this helmet. Backcountry's sizing chart was right on the money and this thing doesn't weight very much. Granted, it's not DOT approved and wouldn't hold up to moto use, but I think it's more than adequate for DH or urban biking. It's not even that hot! I have not tried this dome piece with goggles, but so far, with sunglasses vision is great. I would definitely recommend this helmet!
