Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Riding on Colorado's Front Range trails, this is the right lube for me, I've been using it for years. Lately though, I've experienced a lot of non functioning aerosol sprays, where the nozzle gets gunked up and stops dispensing. Same with the bottle where nothing comes out even though the bottle is upside down, so you shake it and then it spurts half the bottle on the floor. Super annoying. I wonder if the formula's changed to make the lube thicker and as a results it emulsifies a little too much.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Not a review of the light itself, never got a chance to use it.
I was looking for a light to put on my helmet for night mtb riding, found this one with a suggestion for a helmet mount from Lezyne ("Frequently purchased together"...). Turns out this light is incompatible with the mount, so I'm returning both. Not happy at BC's algorithm right now.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Coming from Mavic's Fury shoes, I had to get one half size up as is mentioned in another review, the shoes fit small. Once I got the right size (thanks Competitive Cyclist for such prompt deliveries and easy returns), I tested the shoe on terrain that's not too technical and was pleased with the stiffness of the shoe and the grip of the sole on rock. I use Crank Brothers' Candy pedals and the cleats fit well and I clip in and out without issues.
The only thing that I've noticed for me is that while walking, there's a bit of pressure on the outside of my ankle from the cuff. I figure either I'll get used to it or the shoe will eventually soften to where I don't feel it anymore. Besides this doesn't affect me at all while riding, only when walking. The heel is pretty secure too, which used to be a bit of an issue for me with the Fury model.
Oh, and the boa closure is awesome.
