Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I change saddles a lot for comfort reasons but always seem to be comfortable on the Swallow Ti. Don't like the Swift at all, or the wider ones, but the Swallow is excellent. You just need to use pants that are not too slippery or you constantly push yourself back. I use mine for randos 200-1200km and this really works well for that. Else I use the San Marco Concors, Fizik Snakes, Shimano/Pro etc etc, but this is my favorite one. Takes some maintenance and care in case you get wet, else great comfortable perch for your classic rando rig.

I like the way this mount looks and functilally works, but its a multi piece construction and the screws holding pieces together come loose and when I try tightening the tiny 2mm bolts they strip so then impossible to tighten at all so constantly rattling in the mount on rough roads. Gets surprisingly irritating when the garmin is constantly shaking, and it makes it harder to see the data, maps or use the garmin. I might have to go back to the boring standard garmin mount since it actually works better for me. Use the Kedge since I can mount a light or go pro below.

My set may be a bad example, but they are very flexy and noodly. They rub on the break pads and creak loudly under acceleration or climbing. Not happy with these wheels at all. My old Reynolds or Rolf Ares 4s were stiff and quiet and I expected these expensive ENVEs to be even better, but not at all the case. I am not even riding these anymore as I cannot stand the flexing or noise they make. Very irritating.

I love my Shimano RC321s which are the most comfortable shoes I have used and then I got the Sphyres and makes my feed feel numb on longer rides. I think they are just too stiff so for racing perhaps that is good, but for long distance comfort does not work as well for me as the older 321s. Super expensive as well, and I got the yellow ones and they really are neon bright and pretty darn ugly. I guess only use on short rides they are OK, but longer than 100 miles, I use the 321s

This is my favorite helmet now, after using Kasks, Lazer Z1s and Genesis, Giros etc. I like the Z20 the best. Super light and vents well, and does not look as dorky as some of the new lids. I like having the MIPS as well and did not seem to add much weight or bulk at all. Genious stuff. Thanks Bell for this great helmet. Well worth the $$$.

Made the mistake to get this for a rando bike since it looks great and looks comfy. For me however, this is the most uncomfortable saddle I have tried since my old San Marco Aspide (aka the 2 by 4). This one is a gonner, along with the 2X4 and several Ariones that also stunk. Sticking to San Marco Concors for now and Italia Flites seem to work ok for me.

This bike is amazing. Light, quick, stiff, awesome handling, extremely stable at high speed. Just did my first longer ride (a 130 mile hill ride in Wisconsin) on this bike and was not nearly as beat up and fatigued as I used to be. This bike sure makes a big difference in both speed and comfort. The Countervail really works wonders. Super bike that is also super comfortable. And, looks like a bike should, no goofiness, weird looking tubes or odd designs. Using Super Record/Record and Enve 3.4 hoops. About 14.5 lbs for a 59cm bike! Belissima!

These are the most comfortable bibs I have used for long time in the saddle. Better than Rapha, Assos and the other expensive ones for me. Only ding is that the straps twist and bunch up and get uncomfortable. Else, bibs are perfect. Too bad about that one irritating item, as it does get uncomfortable after a while. The chamois and fit else makes up for it however so I use them all the time anyhow.

Tight fit, and comes down far so hard to fit cap under and to fit glasses comfortably. I have had several Giros and like this one the least. It feels a bit heavy and does not vent as good as my favorite Lazers. I cracked my Lazer so got this Giro as a quick replacement, but back to Lazer or Kask for me now. Much better venting and greater comfort all around in both Lazer and Kask helmets in my experience.

I love these gloves for wet and cold rides (down to freezing or so). Below freezing you need other gear but above these are fantastic and I take them over any other glove, except for Assos, but those I don't like in the wet, so Sealskins are better if any wetness happens. Excellent product overall. I have two pairs just in case I forget where i put one;-)

I like this bag a bit better than my old Ortlieb as the magnetic clasp closure is so easy to operate while riding, whereas the old Ortliebs were impossible to open or close with riding. The drawback is that the hardware keeps falling off. The magnetic claps fall off, and the studs holding the map case (separate part) fall off making the lid and lap case flop around when you ride. They must not know about Locktite or forget to use it in the Brooks plant. Overall a nice bag tho, just hoped that it would hold up a bit better. Ortliebs are tough to beat for quality, so bar is high for the Brooks as well.

Great looking cages but don't like big bottles and do not hold any bottle securely. I have launched a few bottles from these cages. Back to the Cambers which don't look nearly as nice on my steel frame, but at least the can hold bottles securely. Looks aren't everything I guess.

I ordered 4 of these to have as emergency lights on commuter bikes, and 50% of the lights did not work at all. There is a reason these are cheap, they are cheaply made junk. My other, also cheapo, Blackburn versions actually work. Plasticky and ugly as they are, they work as emergency lights, which the Lezynes obviously do not.

Used this for a wet and cold gravel race last weekend, and as my buddies were standing at controls shivering from cold, I was perfectly comfortable with 2 thin wool base layers and this jacket. Worked perfectly, nice ventilation, nice fit, a great product! Very happy with this one! Probably have 6 other rain jackets from assos, mavic, look, etc etc, but this one is not my favorite for more heavy duty use, not just a skimpy emergency protection layer.....
