Familiarity: I've used it several times

This doesn't deserve 5 stars.. Sorry. But I'm not going to sugar coat it. Yes I get it, it's not a "top of the line" pump but it's adequate for the job. When I try to pump up the tires on my road bike to like 100 PSI, it gets pretty difficult to push down and add air past that point. It could also use a tri-base for more stability. If you want a pump and don't mind the extra work it takes to get more than 100 PSI, then this is the pump for you.

These are great for spring or fall riding.. or even early summer morning rides when the temps are a little cooler and when it's a bit windy outside. I would not recommend wearing these in the winter. They're not insulated and don't have a fleece lining. I didn't give these full marks because the rubber on the palms has started to peel after 3 rides which is annoying but whatever I'll survive. I do recommend if you want a very simple lightweight, long-fingered glove for the above seasons as mentioned. Or if you don't get too cold or too hot or just want a pair of great gloves. Grab them!

This helmet is light, aero, comfortable and breezy. The only downside, that probably only applies to me is, the little MIPS thing inside the helmet catches on my hair and makes taking this off a pain in the butt. Or head.. Other than that I really like this helmet and would highly recommend it.

All Of Them

I've grabbed every flavor in these.. they are all freaking delicious. But that is obviously a personal preference. I'm not going to describe the taste of each flavor because everyone experiences flavors differently and what might be good to me, might be disgusting to you. I'll just say that the coconut flavor reminds me of an oatmeal cookie with delicious icing on it. But who knows? You might be that person that hates coconut and that's fine. I will say that these bars are kind of nice to have at my desk or in my bag for when I don't have time to grab proper food. It's a vegan, healthy, convenient snack to have when you're in a jam.

I'm usually one of those lycra wearing cross-country mountain bikers if I'm being totally honest here. So when I was told that I needed to wear baggies, I was doubtful I would find something I actually liked. Well, I'm glad I went with this jersey because it changed my view on mountain bike clothing in general. Very stretchy, nice and cool, airy, breathable, true to size. I attached a photo of the material up close so you could see the texture. If you ride a Yeti, this will look great. If you don't ride a Yeti, this will look great.

To start things off, I'm going to be very honest in this review... I'm typically a Continental 4000S II tire kind of girl.. always have, always will be. So when it came time to put these on my wheels, I was a little hesitant because I was afraid of all the potential flats. Here in Utah, I ride in a lot of farmland areas where goat head stickers are everywhere, as well as the busy canyons that have broken glass and other stuff from heavy winter use so I was basically just expecting to flat no matter where I'd ride. NOPE.
The first ride was a good 4 hour day which involved 3k of climbing and lots of farmland as well... NO FLATS. It has to be fluke right? So I rode the next day, then the next and realized okay it's time to pay attention to other things instead of potential flats. Once I started paying attention to the ride quality I really started to like these.. a lot. Well, how else could I put these to the test? Race them. I went and raced a weekly crit in these.. GREAT TRACTION. These tires are sticky, light, durable, and can corner well in fast turns (no it wasn't a lady crit, it was with men and women's cat 1,2's so we were cookin' on those turns!). Verdict? I'd ride these again but wouldn't make them my "go-to" tire. That's probably just a personal preference thing.. but it is PERSONAL.
Their overall purpose? I think these are a great winter tire to be honest.. the textured surface allows for increased grip on wet, uneven, crap all over the place, roads and is pretty firm for a road tire. A little too stiff for my personal riding preference but WONDERFUL overall.

Hello Airflow

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I grabbed this helmet mainly for all the little air vents and I'm glad I did. It's super lightweight, fits true to size, fits pretty comfortable and is my favorite helmet I have ever owned. I wish it wasn't frowned upon to wear road helmets mountain biking.. but I love my mountain bike helmet pretty much equally. Normally, in order to tighten the helmet to get the perfect fit, you have to use a BOA tightening system that sits on the back of your head, or it's at least what I'm used to. This helmet has a little dial on top of the helmet towards the back which can be seen in the photos if you look closely. I only gave this helmet 4 stars because, while I'm super grateful and a big fan of MIPS, it catches on my hair and pulls it a little bit. For a man or woman with much shorter hair, that won't be a problem for you. Basically, it's a personal problem? Or maybe Lazer should have also had a woman or man in mind that has flowy locks? Any way, it does it's job so that's why it gets 4 stars from me.

Stop using road tubes on your cx or gravel grinder setup. Proper fitting tubes will definitely help reduce the chances for flats. These aren't indestructible but have certainly reduced my number of flats.

Bought this helmet as a gift. Here is what they had to say about it - "One of the best helmets I have ever used. The fit is great and the ventilation is really awesome. Very comfortable even after hours in the saddle. I've been using this helmet for road rides, road races, and cx races. Love knowing I have the extra protection of MIPS."

Bought these as a gift for my boyfriend. He says - "Great shoe that I have been using for mountain biking, cyclocross racing, and gravel road riding. They are lightweight (compared to my old shoes), made with quality materials, and vent well enough to ride in southern Utah on hot days. Love the boa, almost a must-have on cycling shoes. I have not had any of the ankle issues mentioned in other reviews."
