Anyone who is looking for the best pads for greater stopping power and a silent grab on the rotors needs these ASAP. Swisstop has some of the best compounds I have ever uses. The only problem is that they do not last nearly as long as the original pads. However, the better braking power and silence compensates for the wear longevity shortcomings.

I recently purchased Shimano SLX hydraulic brakes to replace the existing brakes on my mountain bike. I am extremely satisfied with the product. The braking is very smooth and the modulation is perfect. What I like most is the ease of trimming the hose length to fit the bike as well as the simplicity of the brake bleeding procedure. A great choice for someone who is looking for a brakeset that is Inexpensive and consistent.

I have so many pieces of Castelli gear and always buy medium and they fit me perfectly. These tights are even tighter around the waste than all of my other Castelli gear. Besides the fit though, These are Very warm. I was almost sweating getting ready for my winter rides, but when outside it was like it wasn't even cold outside and I never suffered once while riding in the Utah cold. The windstopper part on the front is perfect for cold damp rides where you might hit a little mist, and are even good for Fat bike riding in the snow as well.

If you have any questions about these tights, email me at: gcelentano@backcountry.com

My Favorite Piece Of Clothing

I have had 2 SanRemo speed suits and every time I wear them, it reaffirms my love for this piece. It fits tight to the body, but it is not restrictive in any area of the body. I sometimes struggle with constrictive issues with bibs and shorts around the stomach, and the SanRemo solve that issue with out a doubt. This skin suit is not an ordinary one, Castelli basically takes a pair of shorts and a Jersey, sews them together so you get the same security of a bib, but without the straps. It has 3 full pockets on the back and zips all the way down like a traditional jersey. The backside of the Jersey portion is all mesh so there is no worry of over heating even on the hottest of days. Whether you are racing, or going for a long ride, this is always my kit of choice.

This works well as it is described but it lacks in other things. The filter is good, just not good enough to clean make stream water drinkable. Also, the sweat free bubble is, I believe, a little too large especially with the filter, because it make the bottle overly larger without holding a good amount of water.

I bought these shoes to wear as an every day shoe and they are great. Light weight, low on bulk, great traction on DRY surfaces. They are a perfect gym shoe because they do not have the bulk of a running shoe so when you are doing running drills where you have to sprint turn and repeat, you don't feel like tripping over your own feet. It took about 2 full days for the shoes to break in and feel comfortable, and they are perfect for people with a lower volume foot like me. This shoe is a no go for someone with high volume feet. I buy all of my shoes in European size and those fit true to size for a 44EU.

If you have a walk from your car to wherever on snow or ice, they give no traction for that, but if you know that, you can be careful with how you walk.
