Familiarity: I've used it several times

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.

My wife is liking her Pearl Izumi Elite Softshell Gloves so far, though it hasn't really been cold enough to take advantage of them yet. They fit true to size, are comfortable, and the color is just as it's represented in the photos. The palms have pretty serious amounts of pads, and they are soft and fleecy on the inside, which should fair for some awesome winter rides.
