At first glance this is your basic tee, but don't be fooled it's got a lot more to offer than that. It's soft, comfortable, and has a great fit; even better-- it is moisture wicking so not only is it an essential piece for hanging around in off the trail, it's great for riding too. And thankfully unlike a lot of your regular tee's, it does have a longer length so it covers you up even when you are in riding position.

I feel a little bit like a broken record saying size up in Yeti gear, but here I am saying it again... size up.

I bought these pedals after a bad crash with my clipless pedals last year hoping to 1. regain my confidence going over features so I didn't have to worry about being locked in, and 2. I had a desire to pursue endure/downhill more aggressively.

I'm guessing if you are here looking at reviews of downhill pedals, you already know what you are getting into, but in case you don't, I think its worth mentioning that while the pedals "grip" well with my downhill flat shoes, you still aren't going to get the lift in your cadence that you would from a clipless setup. And you are going to want a flat pair of downhill shoes (not your running shoes) to make them worthwhile.

That being said, I have no complaints with the pedals themselves. The traction pins are adjustable which is really nice. I've banged them on rocks and haven't had any integrity issues. They are definitely really nice to have for downhill (surprise!), but they are also decent for lower grade climbs. I also don't have any complaints with them feeling any heavier than my Shimano clips system.

A go-to jersey

When it comes to Yeti Cycles gear you can count on two things, 1. that the gear will be well made and 2. that you will need to size up.

I would normally wear a small, but needed to size up to a medium in this jersey (and it still feels a little tight in the bust as I am bustier). What I do really like about the jersey is the material, which is comfortable, breathable, and dries quickly when you get your sweat on. Another thing that I really appreciate is the length; it's a little bit longer in the back than it is in the front so not only does it actually cover you when you are in riding position, but it doesn't ride up on you when you've got a pack and or when you are riding.

The Juliana J has everything you would expect out of a basic fleece hoodie, it's cute, and super soft with the added bonus of a women's fit. As a head's up, even thought it's super cozy, the fleece itself is a lighter-weight.

I ordered the "teal" (I love, love, this bright this color by the way) in my usual small, and it fit perfectly, I don't think I would have wanted to size down.

I've riden the factory WTB saddle that came on my men's Yeti cycle for the last two seasons. And now I can't help but ask myself, whyyyyyy? (Nothing against the WTB saddle, but after riding a women's specific seat I realized it was not the right fit for me.)

We all know that seat fit is a personal preference, but this one made all the difference for me. I thought being miserable after a ride was part of the package, and was reluctant to buy a women's specific seat because it didn't look like it would fit that differently; but that little difference went a long way for me.

I agree with the comments Lexi made below that the break-in period is much shorter with this seat. I also felt, well, "damaged" after longer rides with my old seat, and despite the fact that it doesn't have a "pressure relief channel" I have found that I didn't really need it as I am much much more comfortable.
