This light packs a lot into a pretty small package. The versatility of being a headlamp, bike light, handheld, or standing light set this light apart from many others. It's a perfect adventure light, or keep one in your car for use anytime. The beam is more of a spot light than a dispersed beam. Very defined edges of light, but casts pretty wide, plenty for the trail or sidewalk.

This is a solid build for a bike at this price. I bought this for my dad who wanted a bike to cruise around the neighborhood. The hydraulic disk brakes inspire confidence when stopping, and the fenders are a nice addition during wet conditions. The blue color is very close to how it looks in the photo. Overall this bike seems to have very quality construction and parts that will hold up well over time. A great commuter/townie!

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

There are really only 2 products that I have used with success in tubeless setups. Stans and Orange Seal. I personally think they both are 5 stars as they both execute a good seal with tubeless setups. In my experience Stans seals up nicely and is reliable, however, needs to be replaced more frequently than Orange Seal. Orange Seal is more expensive but lasts longer in the tire. If you get a flat and the stuff gets anywhere on your frame it's super tough to clean off, which is a good testament to how this stuff seals up in a tire. One other difference between Stans and Orange Seal is Stans will produce sealant goblins and tires are a pain to clean out, Orange seal settles over time and will peel out with much less effort. Good things on both products but make sure you choose one or the other as you don't want to blend them.

This a robust multi tool. It doesn't flex when you have to use the 8mm to wrench off pedals, and seats in the screw heads with precision. This is a high quality multi tool and one i'm not scared to use as a primary in the shop if need be. A little heavy, but i'll take the weight for a high quality multi.

I've owned many racks including the Thule t2, Kuat Sherpa, and Saris Freedom 2, and have come to like the Yakima hold up as my go to for my Mini Paceman. Each rack has its own peculiarities and I have learned over time what I look for in a rack. First off, how the rack is put together and the finish of the materials are super important. Being extended beyond the rear axel, bike racks take a lot of abuse from both movements and vibrations of the vehicle, and the elements of the road. Yakima paid attention to this with oversized stainless bolts all with locking washers, high quality finish- no chipping of paint occurred when assembling the rack and is still holding up- and a simple design. It is very robust, which has been tested thanks to a few pot holes and water bars that Mini's don't handle very well, but the Yakima held up just fine.

All of the tray style racks I have used have performed great for their intended use, but didn't meet my expectations for longevity. So far the Yakima has proved to be much more resilient in the endurance department. Some areas that I could see improvements would be with the integrated locks, which could be a bit longer and have a more thoughtful way to be secured when not in use. Also, the pin to fold the rack up and down is the one nuance that you will get used to but is still awkward every time you have to get the rack in the up position. There's a pinch point that will grab some skin and the pin is a bit of a grunt to pull out. I like this for added strength, but a larger pull knob would really help to grip it with less effort.

This is a great rack, and looks real stealthy behind my Paceman. I like how low profile it sits when its all folded up. I tucks up between the tailights and sits just below my rear view window so I have full visibility. The gloss black color is a clean finish that won't detract from a luxury car. I think the matte silver option is a more rugged look imo. A great rack that is definitely worth the investment.
