Eric Stenglein's Bio

I've been on a MTB since the early 90's. I just started riding on the road and I'm excited to increase my cardio and endurance. I'm not too excited about the lycra and spandex, but it's definitely functional. Alpine skiing is my winter passion. My 8 year old son races BMX and hits the trails with me.

I was expecting something closer to a good quality road chamois by the way the description reads. I ride both road and MTB. My expectations were a little to high. The chamois was sufficient for my typical MTB ride of up to 3 hours, but didn't live up to my thoughts of what a high performance Italian chamois is. I have enough Castelli bib shorts to know what Italian quality is.

The liner short fits well and has enough protection to give me the extra confidence to send bigger lines. D30 hip pads remove easily for washing. The fit and placement of the padding makes the protection unobtrusive. Pedaling uphill was not an issue and I never felt weighed down or uncomfortable with shifting pads sliding around. There is no coccyx protection. These would be perfect if the chamois was of slightly higher quality and coccyx protection. Perhaps Race Face doesn't get many dual road/MTB riders. Overall, I'm satisfied with them, but I'm not fully sold on the "triple density high quality Italian chamois" advertising.

The grips are comfortable and the color matches my Ibis Ripmo perfectly. Most recently I rode the CAMBA trails (Northern WI) in hot humid July weather and could only ride without gloves for a short period of time before my sweaty hands were starting to slip. Once I put my gloves on it was time to get rowdy and send it again. If you ride without gloves consistently you may want to check out the factory version. These are good for me since it doesn't stay hot and humid for long here and I generally wear light gloves most of the riding season.

I'm 5'9 and 195 lbs with a muscular build and this jersey is spot on. XL fits per the measurements on the sizing chart. It hides my imperfect waist line and is relaxed in the chest and shoulders. No wind going up the sleeves . I like this jersey a lot. Euro styling without the racer boy fit. 4 stars for lack of color selection.

It's my second Lazer. I have one I wear on the MTB and it is lighter and cooler than my TLD helmet. This road going helmet is light enough and very reasonably priced. Runs true to size. I'm slightly over 58cm and the Large fit well with an adjustment made to the tabs on the inside of the helmet. Sunglasses and prescription glasses fit well.

Adidas always fits me. These shoes are no exception. These shoes work as advertised. Stiff rubber toe cap saved me once thus far. Soles are nicely stiff for energy transfer. These shoes were cheaper than other brands and feature the same grippy rubber sole technology so no sense in wasting money. I like the minimalist approach with the lace retention strap. Other shoes have the protective flap, but I run hot and the lack of an extra layer is fine with me. I've never had any issues with the laces coming out.

I paired this stem in red with a red 787 Skyline 25mm rise bar and couldn't be happier. I went with the 50mm since I'm in between frame sizes and I wanted a little longer reach without affecting the handling. It's on a new Stumpjumper and the red color on a black bike makes it pop. Bling Bling. It's 5mm longer than factory and I flipped it to replicate the factory 6 degree rise.

Deity pulls no punches with this one. It has a very slight flex to it. At 42 and 200lbs I can appreciate the forgiving nature of this bar. It's only 7mm wider than my factory bar so there was no learning curve. The red looks great and closely matches the stickers on my new Stumpy. Bling.
