Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was just thinking, how can I take my wide mouth Hydroflask to the next level. I really like the bottle but sometimes I just want to sip through a straw without ruining the world. POW! In comes the Straw Lid to save the day. Now my Hydroflask can double as a sippy cup, and all is well in the world.

I love a spotless drivetrain! Love it!
Sometimes you need a little extra ingredient to get the chain truly clean and that is where Pedro's Citrus Degreaser comes in. I will run a little through my Pedro's Chain Pig (thank goodness they fixed the design because it works so very well) and I get my drivetrains spotless. This is my single favorite cleaner when things are especially nasty.

I am not gonna lie, Dawn has typically been my go-to for cleaning frames, but it didn't quite get the job done when it came to drivetrains. It does pretty good, but not good enough. I decided I would give this a try and was pleasantly surprised by how effective it is. I feel like if you have a crazy gunked up drivetrain because you are a negligent monster then you would be wise to pick up a bottle of Pedro's citrus degreaser as well, but once you have forsaken your terrible ways and start adhering to proper bike maintenance, this degreaser does a solid job.

Look, all I am saying is that this GOLD cassette is pretty much the hottest thing you are going to put on your bike. The Titanium nitride finish is legit and has been around for quite some time. I know it from the professional motocross scene where all of the top factory racers had Ti Nitride coated forks for reduced stiction and better performance. Pretty sure those forks they were running cost more than my car. Basically it is like a crazy nice low friction treatment so not only will it look super cool but it will help your drivetrain run quieter and longer than the non treated cassette.

Building up a new whip? Perhaps refreshing your trusty old steed with a fresh new drivetrain? Going Eagle because it is amazing? Go with the XO1 Eagle Crankset. It only makes sense and the new SRAM chainrings will outlast everything else on the market and hold onto the chain like velcro!

Want to run a GXP crank in your PF30 frame without it creaking like a banshee and causing your friends to abandon you on rides? This is the solution. Threads into itself so it won't walk out of your frame and does a great job of staying silent. Pro tip, at least I think it is a good tip, instead of using Grease where the Frame touches the BB, use the Park Tools Green Press Fit retaining compound: Item # PAR005M

I purchased the Forefront when it first came out and really love the fit of the helmet. But did not love the way the Koroyd construction somewhat restricted airflow. Don't get me wrong, it didn't trap heat against my head, but it didn't allow for breezes to pass through the helmet without restriction like other helmets I had owned. In comes the Session. The ventilation is better in my opinion and the coverage and protection is still there. I am a big fan!

Since these are the tire of choice for the fastest guy in XC racing, it only stands to reason that if I run these tires, I will also be the fastest guy, at very least the fastest guy at my local races. Right? These roll mega fast, they are super light and offer more grip than you would think. With all of that said, this is really a racing tire and I wouldn't recommend it for general trail use. I feel like the traction was better than I had anticipated, but not as good as my trusty Ikon/Ardent race combo, at least during dusty mid-summer rides here in Utah. When the dirt is more packed and less loose, these things really shine.

The Ikon tire hits the sweet spot for fast rolling without giving up too much traction. Faster than the Ardent Race without giving up a ton of grip. I love these tires for early and late season riding, but when the mid-season moondust is everywhere to be found I like to go with something a little more aggressive like the Ardent, at least for a front tire. No issues with durability on my end. I feel like I have abused them beyond my expectations and they have not let me down.

I needed a fork to finish the build on my non-boost Specialized Camber. Since the frame wasn't boost I was able to save a bunch of cash and also got a killer deal on wheels. I didn't want to mess around when it came to the fork so I went all in on this one. Does not disappoint. It is longer travel than what would have been stock on the bike and I have actually preferred it that way.

I'll be blunt, I have not historically been a big Fox fan, but the Transfer post, with its reliability and excellent functionality in all temperatures, has won my heart. it just works and works and works. Get the Kashima version if your bike has a Kashima fork and shock because you are worth it.
