These gloves work great with the windstopper tech. The Italian leather palms are amazing. The only thing I would hope for is that they have better sizing and seam sewing. They seem to run small and especially in the thumbs. Size up 1 size.
This is a great bb that's super affordable. If you aren't bound by having the most expensive parts on your bike there really isn't that any weight difference between this and the blackbox xx version. Your biggest difference is your bearings, but I have this on three of my bikes and my spouses and they are bullet proof. Never had any issues or complaints. I like the darker anodized look too.
I've had fork mount racks for years and finally made the switch to this and couldn't be more happy. So convenient and I really like the new updated security features of the lock cables for each bike and the locking hitch. I also really appreciate not needing to take a wheel off or lift it over my head because I am a lazy weakling.
I ordered a medium for my 29er and it was huge. I think the sizing refers to how big of a chainstay it fits and not the length, which i based my size off the length because of a review below. I would order a small for 75% of the bikes out there and if you have a huge chain stay on a downhill bike then maybe go with the med or large. Looks sexier than the lizzard skins for sure!
Bought these as an economical solution to a 29er budget build. Have the equivalent of these in the carbon version and loved them and picked these up too keep the width I prefer. They are light, aluminum and have nice color ways at a great price.
I've been using pretty much since day one. Love how comfy they are, and how they have minimal impact on my carbon bars. They absorb much more jittery shock than any lock-on's or other less dense foam grips out there. Keep it core, keep it simple.
The option you have of the Protection version of this tire is actually an image of the Mountain King II. Don't want any riders to be confused. The folding option is the actual tread pattern for this tire.
I used this on a new bike I got with a PF30 type BB so I could keep using my GXP/BSA Cranks until I could afford some BB30 cranks. There are a few out there but this one is legit, composite material, works perfectly. In my photo you can see how it basically just sits/looks like a bb spacer. If you need to use spacers with your cranks just use them the same way you would on your regular BSA English threaded bbs shell.
