Hose works great for my bladder. I run this in my ABS setup for those long days in the skin track. The added insulation does make the hose a little less flexible, but it certainly does the job keeping it from freezing. Valve cover for the mouthpiece isn't the best and can fall off easily, but overall I would recommend this to anyone who has a Hydrapak bladder.

Agree with the other reviews. Sizing is a bit off and it definitely would be too large for some smaller frame sizes and probably too small if you are on the opposite end of the spectrum. My frame is a 53 and it works great for my setup. I sweat a decent amount outside so you can only imagine how bad it could be on the trainer. Great addition to keep the cockpit clean and salt free.

Ran this for 5 months over the winter with approx. 5-6 hours a week and it held up great. No complaints, quiet, worked perfectly. Would recommend to anyone who is running a Kinetic trainer.

These are my first carbon wheels and I run them on a Ridley Fenix SL, more endurance based over aero bike frame. I wanted to bring in a slightly lighter wheel and give it a bit more responsiveness and it certainly has done that! I run the tubeless version and have had a couple issues with the sealant, but after a couple go rounds they are fully dialed and ready to ride. Overall really happy with this setup and it is a great wheelset.

So I wasn't overly impressed with this jersey. It is a bit thicker than some of the others that I have and doesn't necessarily breath as well. Usually I find myself pretty sweat through by the end of the ride whereas with most of my Castelli jerseys they seem to dry out throughout the ride. Another complaint I have with this jersey is the 1 waterproof pocket with invisible zip is cool in theory, but the zipper ALWAYS gets caught on the inside fabric. They added this sticky type material to the inside of the pocket to help with the waterproofing I assume, but it makes it impossible to get things in and out with sticking to the material and the zipper is horrible. Overall I really like the look and cut of this jersey, just not super hyped on some of the functions. I give it a meh rating overall.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Earlier this summer I decided to join the ranks of the roadies and cross-over from a strictly dirt/trail background. Had an opportunity to test out a few different bikes and the Dogma was the first bike I road. Maybe not the best of ideas going straight to the Ferrari of road bikes, but it gave me a very good understanding of what I didn't want in a bike.

First, yes, this bike is amazing. Great design, very snappy and responsive, fast, fun and very light. But, when you are just getting into road biking, I wanted something that was more soft and smooth. The Dogma is very rigid and after a long ride and my body not being used to it, I could definitely feel it. For the more advanced rider out there, this bike is amazing, it just wasn't for me in my stage of riding.

Second, like Robert mentioned, the price was hard for me. Granted I was buying the bike, but every time I took it out for a ride all I could think about was the fact I was on $10,000 of carbon goodness and the slightest problem could equal major disaster.

Really, there aren't many real negatives to this bike except it just wasn't the bike for me at this time in my riding experience. Maybe a couple years down the road if I start racing and need this type of bike I could justify the few cons to balance out the many pros the bike as to offer.

Agree with some others, haven't used it a ton just yet, but it is nice to know I can adjust my Pike based upon the needs of the trail. I dialed it in for our typical trails in Park City, but don't use the adjustments enough when traveling. Overall it is a great value, very easy to install and adjust. Worth adding to your bike.

Enjoy the quick draw laces vs. that of the BOA on some other models. Also, the lace guard or whatever you want to call it is nice to make sure nothing gets caught where it shouldn't and make for an unpleasant end to the day. Only piece of advise on this shoe is to definitely size down. They run about a half to full size big in my opinion compared to other shoes I have ordered.
