Andrew Dickinson's Bio

Southern California born and raised. Have lived in Utah since August of 2015. Started with mountain biking when I was in high school which grew to other cycling disciplines. Have raced on the road doing your Sunday Crits in Socal industrial parks which fit me perfectly as a sprinter. My preference is to be on the dirt where I have raced everything from downhill to XC to single speed 12 hour races and enduro events. Spend the off season racing cross and trying to figure out this snow thing out. If you have any questions I am always happy to help and you can reach me at (801) 736-6396 or adickinson@backcountry.com

Are you looking to run a GXP crankset on your PF30 frameset? This definitely has to be one of the best ways to go. There are cheaper ways to do is but you run the risk of creaking. Put one of these in my Niner RLT Steel frame for my GXP crankset and went on without a hitch. If you have any questions about bottom bracket solutions for your frame and crankset please feel free to reach out to me and I will be more than happy to help you out.

Definitely a must have if you ride in any condition. The Shakedry keeps you dry when it is wet outside. With the new stretch fabric this version has a better fit than than previous ones. Definitely more of a race fit and less material flapping in the wind. I find that it fits true to size based on the sizing chart. If you want it to fit looser size up. Great added feature is that it folds up into the rear pocket for easy storing on a ride.

Got this helmet as I have always been a big fan of POC helmets. First off the helmet if going to fit slightly small and not as low on the brow as the Octal helmet. That being said the helmet still fits great and the SPIN pads, in my opinion, are more comfortable than MIPS liners. If you have questions about the fit please feel free to reach out to me.

Got this crank for my gravel bike and it does a great job. The chainrings are a little harder to change due to the hidden bolt behind the crank and you may have to remove the spider. The 1x NW chainring does a great job of keeping the chain on. If you have fitment questions please feel free to reach out.

Got this as a replacement for my Praxis bottom bracket that came on my Ibis Hakka MX as I was changing out the cranks. At first when I put my Hakka together with the Praxis I thought the threads were not chased but after putting on the Wheels MFG it went on smooth so it seems like the Praxis had some thread issues. Have put on a few miles since getting it and the bottom bracket is still spinning smoothly.

Got these for my Hakka gravel bike as I was having fitment issues with the cages. Got these as they allow a lot of placement options and they did the trick. They also do a great job of keeping your bottles secure without making it hard to get the bottle in and out.

I got these as I was looking for something more casual looking while riding the bike but still wanted some performance benefits and these glasses seem to do the trick. The rubber nose piece keeps the glasses in place and the Prizim Road Lens does a great job of helping you see. Great part is you can use these sunglasses for a casual day out off the bike. They seem to fit well on medium to large size faces.

Great Bike But A Few Misses
3 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got the 27.5" version of this bike, which is definitely the way to go. It is a lot easier to find 700c wheels with a 12mm through axle than it is for a 27.5". Out of the box the bike is very clean looking and most of the parts are well though out.

On the dirt the 27.5" tires did a great job soaking up the bumps compared to a 700c tires due to the increase in volume. They really shine on brake bumps to reduce the jarring feeling you usually get. Being able to switch between the two wheel sizes adds a great amount of versatility. Can handle dirt roads to single track.

The few misses are minor but should not be overlooked. First one is the water bottle cage mount placement. This is for the 61cm frame so I can't attest to it being like this on the other sizes. The seat tube cage sits low, which I can understand to make room for a frame bag but it sits so low that the bottle actually hits the down tube when placed in the cage. The down tube cage sits low enough on the down tube that the bottle rests on the down tube water bottle. Probably could be fixed with different water bottles that offer an adjustment but a few millimeters can make a world of difference.

The other small issue is that the Enve fork, which is great, comes only in post mount but the frame is the newer flat mount. Not a big issue with a complete bike but if you were ever to upgrade it can make things a little difficult.

If you have any questions about the bike or the fit please feel free to reach out to me and I will be more than happy to help you out.

Got this helmet after riding the the race version for a year. Has great ventilation and fit larger heads quite well. You will notice that it does sit lower on the brow than some other brands but that is not necisarily a bad thing. The only thing you will be missing out on from the race version is the google strap in the back and the full Aramid fiber grid.
