Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Got this to replace my stock bars on a CAAD12 and they made a huge difference. The carbon dampens the road vibration more than the old bars, but still communicates road feel really well. Bar diameter, shape, weight...they got all those details right. It fits my hands and posture just right. Love it.

The good: for the price, this is great bar tape. Cork tape is simply a superior material, in my opinion. Just the right amount of squish and vibration damping, and good color selection. The bad: the bar plugs don't stay in very well compared to other brands, and they lack reflective bits. You get what you pay for, I guess. I've been reusing some old SRAM bar plugs, which are way better.

I likey. Usable from 55F all the way to sub-freezing when paired with a base layer underneath and a windproof item on top (I go with the Castelli Perfetto), this thing is versatile. This and the Perfetto have made riding in the fall, winter, and (probably) spring in New England a lot more comfy.

I got this for road rides into late fall and winter in the Berkshires and western New England. It is windproof and somehow breathes well, but it's not warm. On my ride today (it was 29degF), I wore a base layer and the Castelli Puro 2 under the Perfetto and my temp was perfect. After going 31 miles, only my toes were cold. I'm 6' and 185 lbs with skinny legs, and I got the XL--it was big enough to fit 2 layers underneath, albeit snuggly. Pockets are deep and stretchy, and there are reflective bits to make you stand out. I got the Sky Blue version. Nice color.

These are weird. The material around the legs is not the typical lycra; it almost feels like thin rubber. The pad is extra thick and large--it extends up the front and down the legs more than any other bibs I've used. But the worst part is the straps. The material is uncomfortable, unforgiving, and irritating. They dig into your shoulders, and over a long ride the straps don't really disappear like they do on bibs that fit well. Add to all of this that the bibs run at least one size small...I'm a large usually and the XLs seemed small for the first month until I either lost weight or the bibs stretched. I wouldn't buy these again.

A perfect pad, unnoticeable straps, and perfect fit have made these my go-to shorts. In the summer heat, I like the grey color--it keeps cooler than black, and the color stripes on the legs help keep me more visible to motorists. My riding buddies initially razzed me about my wife "bleaching" the shorts, but they since have come around. I like everything about these, and I have bibs by Pearl, Sportful, and Castelli.

I got these for winter trail running and summer day hiking, climbing Mt. Monadnock and a few of the easier Whites. The Gore-Tex is great--my feet are always dry. As for size, these shoes were narrow for me, and I have average width feet. Sizing is weird..the shoe is longer than it should be; they took a while to break in. I also used blue superfeet in place of the thin and unsupportive Salomon insole. On a dirt and root trail, these do very well. You can get away with hiking in them (it's not their stated purpose)--but they don't grip well on granite, wet or dry (I have bruises to prove it), and the small tread lugs wear away pretty fast if used on harder surfaces like pavement or rock. After a year of use, my Salomons have little tread left and are good mostly for mowing the lawn in. Because of fit, high price, and tread issues, I would not buy them again.
