Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have used this powerful light for the last three months. Today, July 24 2020, I took a different route and used the highest beam possible for two hours. Upon finishing my ride I grasped the light to press the top button to turn off the light. On each the side of the light there are two steel fin like wedges to aerate the light. Well, those fins heat up so much that upon my index finger touching one, I was burned so bad that my index finger blistered. I would caution anyone that uses this light to not touch the sides of it at anytime after having any of the beams on. Thanks.

As one ages, one's feet flatten out, thanks to gravity, and in effect, widening the foot. These shoes offer a wide toe box that is much wider than any other bicycling shoes that I have owned. Very comfortable and professionally engineered. These are the shoes that I was looking for!

In theory, this headband is an ideal item to protect you from the wind and to keep your head warm. In practice, the headband is too small to be practical . It squeezes my huge head that houses my huge brain, which I use to solve complicated math problems. I don't think I will be able to use it.

Since Speedplay cleats are unique to the industry, and somewhat delicate, it's ever so important to keep them running optimally. If not lubricated properly, the cleats will not disengage and you could find yourself in a whole lot of hurt. This lubricant works wonders on these cleats, allowing them engage and disengage with ease. Lubricate your cleats after several rides.

I guess my head must be big because of the gigantic brain I have which I exhibit with my superior intellect. Regardless of those facts, I found this head covering to be too tight and highly restrictive, almost crushing my head and wanting me to pass out! I already cut off the tags so I can't return the item. I will give it a whirl in the winter and if it's a no go I will donate it to a smaller headed rider and then look for another appropriate head cover.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

After trying on three different shoe styles in a month, I haven't found a pair of shoes that fits my needs exactly. Alas, the Lake CX301 shoes offer me just about enough room for my elongated feet so as to minimize but not eliminate the pains I have been experiencing with my toes with bicycling shoes. The Lake CX301 shoes are by far the widest and roomiest road shoes I have worn thus far. I love the simple BOA design of adjusting the shoes' around my feet. I did remove the inner foot sole to offer my left foot some more room. That was a huge mistake as I road across some broken roads and my toes were bounced around the non cushioned bottom of the shoe and I had the sensation of the tips my toes being hit with a hammer. Leave the sole inserts inside the shoes! These are great shoes; simple and complex at the same time.

I bought these great looking shoes in hopes that they would be a wider fit than the Sidi Mega shoes. Unfortunately, they weren't the panacea that I was looking for. The shoes are wonderfully designed and professionally manufactured but are still narrow. The reason why my feet don't fit well into the shoes is because I have lost the arch in my feet, due to age. I use a heel cup in these shoes to give my feet a lift and decrease the length the toes have into the toebox. If you have a high arch in your feet than these shoes will be wonderful for you. Look for the widest shoes available if the arch in your feet have flattened.

After working with gearhead Matt Conn he suggested to try these Bravo Gel gloves. I am really impressed with them! Prior glove purchases resulted in thin and ill fitting pairs but not these. These are full fitting gloves, almost like a bra for your hands! Easy to remove with cool engineered finger loops.

Nice looking gloves with cool finger loops that help you pull the gloves off, after you snuggly pull them onto your hands! The left hand glove is tighter then the right hand glove and is a little painful in the thumb grip area. I didn't feel like sending back a second pair of gloves so I'm hoping that these gloves will stretch a little so as to fit better.

I had high expectations that my feet would fit more comfortably in these almost $400 shoes. But, alas, that was not the case. As one ages, one looses the arch in their feet, consequently lengthening the foot. I purchased a 1/2 size bigger than what my foot measured, hoping that my toes on my left foot would not rub into the toe box. The shoes just aren't that wide, even though they are advertised as an EE/EEE when one buys the Mega style. The shoes are incredibly well engineered and manufactured to offer the most comfort and performance possible. It's just my feet are now different then they were just two years. ago. I love the adjusting system on the shoes; really pro looking! Sidi doesn't recommend replacing their sole inserts but my toes were getting numb while riding with theirs so I purchased a pair of gel inserts and installed them into the shoes, preventing my toes from becoming LESS numb. Have your feet measured on a Brannock Device before purchasing these shoes so that you will know exactly your size and then convert that size in a European fit.

I bought these shoes as I have been a Sidi fan for over a decade and I really like their shoes' performances. I had purchased a pair of Sidi Ergo 4 46.5 Mega shoe in hopes that that width would alleviate the rubbing of the tip of my second to the last toe to the top of the toe box. The Mega width, EE/EEE is plenty wide for flattened feet. Now, as I use this newer size, I have some pain in the second to the pinky toe but it's not from rubbing the toe box; it's from the toe gripping the bottom of the stiff sole. I am going to resolve my unique problem and I still highly recommend Sidi Mega width shoes.
