Upgraded my cockpit and I couldn’t be happier with these bars. Lightweight, with comfortable hand positioning. Bonus points for the little end caps on the end that go over the bar tape.

I mounted these on the underside of the crossbar on my handlebars so I can downshift while climbing and they work as advertised. Mounted them partially under the bar tape so they’re pretty stealth and you really have to look to see that they’re even there. Minus one star due to them not coming with the bar clamps.

Wanted to get some tougher tire levers as the ones I’ve been using snapped during a tire change. These are some pretty burly levers and I don’t think I’ll be able to break them. The tips are exposed metal though so if you have carbon rims you gotta be careful not to damage them while using the levers. They’re also a little larger and heavier than plastic levers so I’m not sure if I’m going to lug them around in my saddle bag.

Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

My husband was pretty excited to get this as his first Silca tool, but "after using it for a few weeks, I’m somewhat disappointed with it. After using it to torque stem, handlebars and seatpost during a bike build, I noticed that the torque meter no longer goes back to zero, which now makes torquing bolts a bit of a guessing game. Also, the ring holding together the ratcheting mechanism has popped off a couple times when I’ve been using the tool. Seems for the price that Silca charges for tools, the quality would be a little better."

Gave these as a gift for a friend, who says, "Oakley sets the trend in cycling eyewear and these glasses push the limits on several fronts. Most noticeably, I would classify the style as "looks great on the bike, but I wouldn't wear them without a helmet" category. But if you use them for riding, who cares! On the technology side of things, the Prizm lens is fantastic. Also, I love the ability to adjust the ear piece length. This is great for fit and for working with a variety of helmet retention systems. The only drawback is that visibility is slightly (very slightly) worse than my old Oakley Radars. The circular logo on the side catches your peripheral vision when looking over your shoulder. But after a few rides I've grown accustomed to this and it isn't a big deal. Overall, highly recommended."

I was unprepared for just how much I would love this bottle. I got the sport lid to go with it, all specifically for hot yoga, and this thing does not disappoint. I can fill it with ice and water, take it into a 92-degree room for 75 minutes, and at the end of it all there is still ice water in that bottle, and no puddle on the studio floor. I also love the bright yellow color, it's like it is happily reminding me to hydrate. Highly recommend!

Got this for a friend, who writes, "I was a little worried at trying it on because I've never bought a jersey before so didn't know the proper sizing, but it ended up fitting and got to use it on my first bike ride this season! Definitely would recommend, very breathable, but not see through."

Got these for a friend, who exclaims, "First bib ever, was very comfortable and the extra cushioning was greatly appreciated. I'm new to the road bike scene, but I think if recommending I would definitely recommend a bib over regular bike shorts. No muffin top!"

I got this in the "multicolor red", and it's really more orange than anything else, and I am OK with that! I wish it was a big longer in front, but other than that is a perfectly good jersey. I dig the full zipper, and the rear pockets have plenty of room. It is slightly see-through, I've found, just FTR.

These are my first set of bibs, so I can't really compare, but I will say that I definitely like these and will probably not go back to regular shorts. I definitely do not miss the elastic waistband! The chamois in these bibs is fantastic, as I expected with Giordana. I found them pretty tight around the thighs at first, but they quickly become perfectly comfortable once riding. I'll probably get similar bibs but in the 3/4 length next!

Got this for a friend, who says: "Great multi-sport child trailer! We have used this skiing, running, and biking with our son and are very satisfied. The construction is high quality and it changes easily between sports. It folds up nicely and travels well. Be sure that the accessories that you order integrate with the model chariot you order, old harness does not fit new chaise. Order the infant insert for little ones, it works great!

Skiing: The chariot pulls easily skate-skiing and x-country skiing w/o interfering with your form. It does not make sharp turns well, unless you keep the hip belt very loose. Good control on gentle downhills.

Biking: This is a light trailer! It pulls easily and turns well. It is, however, possible to turn the cart over if you hit a bump in the road, so caution is needed on rough surfaces. I was able to pull this up a long hill in our neighborhood, though it did increase my effort substantially.

Running: The Chariot glides on the road. There is a wheel truing knob that keeps the cart from pulling to one side. It is very good at going straight, but turning, especially at sharp angles is difficult. You must lift the front wheel off the ground.

Stroller: Have never used this mode, but appears to be quality.

Bottomline: This is the child trailer you want."

"This is my first pair of Sidi shoes and I’m wondering why I didn’t switch sooner. For years I rode with a pair of Rapha Grand Tour shoes and while they were comfortable, I still got hotspots during long rides. The Boa system all but eliminates hot spots and numb feet and I feel like I’m directly connected to the bike. Also, the neon yellow color is awesome."

Now you can be both lazy and hydrated

Why walk all the way to the office water cooler every time your puny water bottle runs dry, when you can just fill this bad boy up once in the morning and stay hydrated all day long! It's a little annoying to carry around, so definitely meant for more sedentary activities. Probably works great with beer, too, but I haven't tested that, yet.

Got these for my husband, who says: I got these tires after the set of Mavics I had on my bike were shredded by the roads around Park City. The 4 Seasons are perfect for the variable conditions I ride in (unsealed roads, gravel trails, general rocks/gravel/whatever leftover from winter) and I’ve had zero cuts, tears or punctures over the course of about 1000 miles. They’re not as supple or comfy as something like a Vittoria Corsa but you know that going in with these tires and while you give up a little bit of comfort, you get durability and grip in pretty much all conditions you can throw at a road bike. Definitely a great tire.

He says: I love this saddle! My previous Selle Italia was really beating up my undercarriage so I decided that it was probably time for something new. I have always loved Brooks saddles (I have a B17 on my commuter bike) and once I discovered they had released a lightweight carbon saddle for road bikes, I knew immediately that this was the one for my backside. I’ve done a series of rides with this saddle, usually in the 20 - 40 mile range and I’m extremely happy with the comfort and performance. It also looks bad ass on my bike.
