Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have used numerous WTB saddles over the years, and have enjoyed all of them until this one. I have put approximatly 300 miles on my Silverado Saddle hoping I would get used to it, however, I never did. I think my biggest issue with the saddle is the relatively flat top that does not have a lot of curve on the sides. On longer rides this flat shape would cause some thigh rub as opposed to the Volt of the Hightail which has a slightly sloping shape. If you are looking for a relatively flat saddle then this one could be perfect for you.

The Guide RS brakes install and setup very easily. While at first it may not feel as if there is much power on tap, there definitely is plenty. The brakes offer great modulation with a slightly softer bight point that allows for you to really control how much brake you are using and prevents you from skidding down the trail. The only issue I have run into is that on long rides in very hot temperatures, the brake seems to lose a lot of the modulation that makes these brakes so good.

I purchased these the swap out the stock sintered pads on a much older set of brakes that pads seem to be a little hard to find. The first thing I noticed was how much quieter the pads were, no more squeaky brakes! The power on hand was also pretty impressive ones the pads bedded in.

After hearing the bold claims made by Smith about Chromapop lenses actually being able to enhance your vision I was skeptical, however, after having ridden with them I am shocked at how well they actually work. Even while using the full sun lenses in the woods I still had great trail definition and could see all of the little roots and rocks. The fit on these glasses can be the one drawback I have experienced; the large lens which allow for great unobstructed vision can interfere with some helmets and does not give you the most comfortable fit.

These are certainly not the lightest shoes that are available, however, they are not really intended to be. The vibram soles add a good bit of heft but this is what makes them so comfortable to ride in all day. The sole has some flex built in as well as good traction; this makes any hike a bike sections much more tolerable than wearing ultra stiff carbon soled ultra light shoes.

This is the perfect food item to take out on a long ride. Salt helps you stay hydrated and prevents cramping and the fat and protein content gives you some pretty serious sustained energy. Also tastes way better than any gel I have ever had.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I was really excited to be able to use this bag as I am a huge fan of on the bike storage. The quality and craftsmanship seems top notch. The downside is that the velcro straps might not be large enough to fit around all top tubes as i had to return the bag due to it not fitting on my frame.
