This is my preferred shifter for an Eagle groupset. I am currently using it with a GX group and it makes the whole experience better. The adjustable paddle and light action are significantly better than GX or NX shifters, and this does not have the exorbitant price tag of the XX1.

I got these as an alternative to using a full hardshell glove. They do a great job of blocking the wind as they are supposed too. I like the fact that they are not as hot and clunky as a full hardshell and do not have any extra insulation. While they are not as warm as other gloves out there they work well in cooler/windy conditions. Only drawback is that the touch screen panel does not seem to work very well.

These shorts work very well and keep you surprisingly warm. The insulation combined with the windblocking material is a real winner.

My only complaint is that the do run a bit small. I have a 32" waist and got a medium, and while they fit just fine at the waist it would be difficult to add extra layers underneath if the weather called for it. This does limit their potential slightly.

When I received a couple of old Thule roof racks from a buddy I was stoked, but a few missing parts had them a few steps away from perfection. Fortunately with the help of Thule's array of replacement parts, like these wheel tray end caps, I was able to get my racks back into tip-top shape — however they don't stay on super well, and after a couple of road trips I'm already missing one again. I wish Thule had a fix that stays put a little bit better.

My previous wheel straps had broken and gone missing after years of use (and abuse), so I was stoked to find that I could easily replace my wheel straps to keep my bikes secure. The ratcheting system works well, and the folding mechanism means my wheels stay really secure on the way to the trail, but it would be nicer if the straps were a little longer to accommodate beefier tires used these days.

When I got my new truck it came along with a nice rooftop rail system right from the get-go, but the only problem was that it was locked in place, and not in the right spot for my bike racks. I snagged these lock cylinders to replace the locks and get things going. The one frustrating bit is that the universal key for changing the locks doesn't actually work on a locked-lock (which makes sense when it comes to keeping your racks secure from other folks with universal keys), but this posed as a challenge for removing my original cylinders. After a trip to a locksmith I was able to get them swapped though, and now it's smooth sailing with these new cylinders.
