Caffery's Bio

Hi All,

I grew up in Connecticut, spending most of my youth seeking out new trails to ride on my orange Pacific 6-speed, often ending up in random backyards with barking dogs. After college in Pennsylvania, I moved to the Asheville, NC area where I was a mountain biking instructor, with the privilege of riding and racing in Pisgah, Dupont, Bent Creek, and all the rest of the best out in those Blue Ridge Mountains for several seasons. In 2011, I moved to NYC, wherein I had ample time to familiarize myself with the modern road cycling culture, racing, technology, and of course, bikes.

After three years in NYC, however, I needed some more elevation in my life. I'm excited to now be living in Utah and working for Competitive Cyclist / Backcountry. I look forward to helping you figure out what bikes, gear, and accessories will work best for you. Please don't hesistate to contact me at cgarff@backcountry.com, or 888-276-7130, x4648.

- C

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Purchased this bag for my brother, since he's a tour manager for a band and travels constantly. His opinion is that it's one of the best and smartest bags he's ever had. The dual compartment split feature is genius (camera gear or other delicate/expensive stuff can go in the smaller one, clothes and shoes in the bigger one, for example). There are many smaller pockets and sleeves for gear, paperwork, etc., to be found all over, so it's very easy to stay organized. The bag gets four stars and not five, because while it does feel like a piece that can and will take a beating, some hardware details like the telescoping handle and the construction/plastics around the wheels and base feel like they could be more sturdy, especially at this price point. The fabric, zippers, straps, and everything else, however, feel like they will last forever. This is an awesome bag, and I will likely be purchasing one for myself.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

To Utah riders, this review could come down to one experience I had on the DB Mission 2: I cleared the entire Jacob's Ladder climb in Corner Canyon on this bike (yes, all the way up to that rock face on top), and then on the way down, I was mere seconds off of taking the JL descent KOM on Strava. That, my friends, is insane... For non-Utahns, that means this: this bike can climb astonishingly well, and then absolutely crush going downhill. Spec is great, too, but the Mission 2 gets four stars instead of five because they should definitely outfit this rig with a true 1x11 group (SRAM's X1 would be perfect here), rather than a 1x10 with that 11x36 cassette - it has barely enough low-end for seriously steep climbs. That's it for gripes, though. This thing is solid, and fun as hell. For shuttle runs or enduro days, DB's new Mission is on a mission - and for this price? Awesome.
