Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this to go on a bike I'd bought that came with a steel rail heavier saddle and thought at this price it's worth a gamble. I was really happy after a couple weeks of riding now. It was easy to get used to and is pretty darn light. I know saddles are totally personal and what one person likes another may hate. I have usually ridden selle italia slr saddles and this had a similar feel.

I am on my 3rd pair now, that should tell you my opinion of the Hitogami. They wear slightly faster than some other shoes I've worn for running but the feel and performance I get are worth getting a new shoe a month sooner. they are very light, more of a minimal shoe. I know that's not for everyone but if you like that type of shoe I highly recommend them.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

The 5010 was the first bike I'd ridden from Santa Cruz 3 years ago, 3 years later it's still a favorite, it kind of spoiled me. I was not really a FS guy and after riding the 5010 I have to own two bikes. I own two SC's right now and can't say enough good about them. But back to the 5010. 27.5 wheels were great for a little more enduro riding particularly for a shorter guy like myself (5'7"). I always worry about the rear shock getting in the way of the inclines but the VPP pedals very efficiently and make the bike fun to ride no matter what. I rode a S and M and would prefer a M. It was very easy to handle and work underneath me in the tight stuff. Fell free to contact me with questions on sizing or any specifics on the bike.

The Highball became my favorite hard tail this last year. I've owned a couple SC bikes and never been disappointed. The frame is LIGHT, but more importantly it rides excellent. flies up, stable and secure coming down. I know ht bikes aren't for everyone but if you are more of an XC rider like myself you will not be disappointed. The Fox factory shock is solid, I've had it on 3 bikes now and no regrets. Shimano components are as reliable as you can get, they are rock solid and the XTR set up make the highball totally race ready. If you have questions on sizing (SC runs small) or anything feel free to email or call me here directly. 801-204-4699

please notice the pictures for the turquoise and raw show a different frame shape near the seat tube. the shape you see in the turquoise pictures are the 27.5 which comes on the XS and S. The style you see on the raw color is what will come on M and up which is the 29" frame. Feel free to contact me with any questions or clarification. I'm also happy to help on any build options.

The fenix replaced one of my favorite all around'er bikes of all time, the excaliber which I was sad to see go. I have to say that I am very very happy with the Fenix SL. The weight is not bad at all with the ultegra set up and feels very lively. The bottom bracket is nice and stiff giving you plenty when you stand on it. It's a bike you won't soon out grown, The ride is good but I would say down the road you might do a carbon post and bars to really make it sweet. I've owned every Ridley model out there now and never been disappointed and the new Fenix SL has been no exception. They size pretty big, at 5'7" I ride an XS which came with a 90 stem and offset seatpost. Feel free to contact me directly with any questions on sizing, the frame, or components.

I picked up a pair of these for my son and then had bar Enve so had to get a second one for myself. I cut one pair down to 750 for my XC bike and they have been solid. Total confidence in the enve products I've owned but these were the first bars. They have made a really nice ride, particularly if you are coming off of alloy bars. A good carbon handlebar, on any bike, is worth every penny and these are worth it.

riding XC may not require the most durable stem out there but I have no trouble trusting the Easton stem. It's well made, not super heavy, pretty inexpensive. I'd but it again.

I wouldn't buy a helmet just buy price alone but the price on these was excellent. I bought is because Giro make a great helmet and wanted a nice helmet as a gift for a family member and have always loved the Giro products. Fit was good and true to size. Retention system is not quite as good as there top helmets but not many people would really appreciate what is on a really expensive helmet. This will be great for most people.
