Chase Skidmore's Bio

I'm a Utah native. Mountain biking, climbing, and traveling are three of my passions that consume most of my time. Split boarding is becoming my winter obsession.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Been running this bar for the past 2 seasons and have loved it. Great width for my tail bike. The quality and performance is right on par with what you'd expect from something with the name Enve on it.

I got this as a replacement to a garmin strap that I broke when I bear hugged a tree. The HRM connected immediately to my garmin bike computer and has worked flawlessly. As others have complained, the snaps aren't completely secure. If you have the band too tight, they'll pop, if you have the band too loose, it'll start to slip as you sweat. So yes, a little harder to dial in the fit, but great HRM performance.

This remote is heads and tails above the original Thomson remote that came with my Elite Dropper. Obviously you need to be rocking 1x in order to have this setup but it’s seamless with my Shimano brakes and it’s made my cockpit super clean. I’ll never go back to the old remote!

I also gave this bell as a gift - here's the feedback I got from my buddy:
I had the Oi bell from Knog on my bike and while it’s super discrete it’s not loud enough for the trails. This Bell, however, is amazing. Rings for days! Super loud, good looking and easy to install. I’m not sure what else you’d want out of a bell? It looks like it’s well built and could take some hits and keep on ringing.

I was surprised by how much I immediately liked these shorts. I usually steer towards Pearl Izumi or Mavic shorts but decided to broaden my view and have loved the results. These shorts are very lightweight and breathable, and the fit is incredible. No chamois included, but they've fit over every one I've tried without any comfort issues. I have spent some long hours in the saddle with these and not had to think twice about the shorts I was wearing, which is the idea. I'd quickly get another pair once I wear these out.

This was my first pair of Zoic shorts, and I'm very happy with them. They fit well and are very comfortable/breathable. Chamois is decent enough. The mix of fabrics is perfect for making this shorts stretch and ride great, and all the pockets and other features are great. So far I've had no durability issues, even with a few spills in the dirt. I'd definitely get another pair once mine are worn out.

This bell is amazing, the hype is real. And yes this bell is so amazing that it is worth reviewing, and worth the price tag. Very high quality construction, with a nice bar attachment. But what really makes this bell worth it is the sound and resonance of the "ding". The whole point is to be heard and this bell accomplishes that better than any others. Buy this and let people know you are coming.

I upgraded to XX1 eagle recently. It was a little more than I wanted to budget on an upgrade so I compromised on the crank. At this point it doesn't feel like a compromise. This crank looks really good installed with the rest of the eagle set, and is sub-100 grams heavier than the XX1 version. Very happy with this crank and the 12 speed setup.

This cassette is just what you'd expect from the XX1 designation from Sram, smooth and nearly flawless. Plus it's GOLD! The 500% gear range is perfect for running 1 or 2 chainring sizes bigger than regular 1x11 drivetrains. It took maybe 5-10 minutes of tweaking to dial in the limiter screw and derailleur adjustments, but now I'm shifting 12 gears like a dream! The whole system works very well and I'm very happy with my upgrade. I've used XX1, X01, and XT 11 speed drivetrains. This blows all of them out of the water.

Bought this on a whim, and sure am glad I did. I didn't really need another pump, but now I don't really use any other pump. This pump is well constructed, has an amazing and accurate gauge, and I love the release button on back of the valve, to really dial in your pressure needs. I'm not sure how I ever pumped up mountain bike tires before hand, my pressure must have been all over the place.

I gotta be honest, not in love with cleaning, so I couldn't give a cleaning supply item a 5 star. But these have been great brushes, I've had a set well over a year now and not had any issues. Bike is always shiny and clean, and brushes/bristles are still in great shape. Buy this and take care of your two-wheeled friend.

These are my go to shoe for connecting my shoes to my pedals. The shoes fit true to size, have adequate ventilation, and are quite comfortable. Two velcro straps and the ratcheting ankle buckle provide the right amount of adjustability for whatever your ride plan for the day is.
The sole is stiff enough to be efficient and with the rubber lugs on the outsole you have plenty of traction for those hike-a-bike situations. So far I've taken these shoes through every type of terrain and dirt substance imaginable from sand, snow, and mud and have had zero durability issues.
Mavic's customer service has been phenomenal too. I broke a buckle (in travel of all things, not riding) and they were super fast at sending a replacement. I use these with spd pedals on both my mountain bikes, and a cross bike and I don't plan on switching shoes anytime soon.

I love these chews, especially the cherry cola. These are perfect to add some variety to the bars and gels and long rides and runs. Good flavor, good energy, and some caffeine enhanced flavor options. They don't handle heat that well though, so they may get a little melty/sticky if you have them in a jersey pocket on a hot day.
