Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have both Pedros and a Park Tool Torque Wrench. Love the weight and construction of the Park over Pedros. Pedros was super light and I felt like I was going to break it, which of course I did as a dumba$$ using it to take off some pedals because I had nothing else around at the time. Any way, another story all together. Overall...dig the Park Tool torque wrench much better and have both sizes now so I never have the issue I had before.

Luckily I don't have the issues my friend Trent does with the sound, but if you watch any of his YouTube videos you will hear what he means. The thing I was a bit upset about was the rotors came a tiny bit bent out of the packaging and so I needed to do a bit of love to them to keep them from rubbing. Still haven't got them fully dialed, but as Trent said. They stop great!!!

Upgraded from the Guide R brakes to give a bit more control and feel with the levers. Absolutely love the feel and responsiveness I get with these brakes. Chrome looks solid on my Bronson as well and adds a little flare, but can't go wrong with the overall performance!

I am not a fan of the first line of tech specs saying budget friendly rear derailleur. Sure, it is, but the quality is there as well. Why pay so much extra for XX1 when you can get such great quality for a lower price. Sure, you add a little weight with this set, but if you aren't an XC maestro, a little extra weight never really hurts, does it?

Okay, yes I stole the title of my review from someone else, but the truth is there. Upgraded to an Eagle GX Group set this summer and super happy. Installation was very easy and SRAM has a ton of videos on how to install the entire group set. With the purchase of a couple of tools I had the old set off and the new one on with an hour. Super happy with the performance so far, but will update as the summer progresses. If you are looking to upgrade your drivetrain to Eagle and don't want to go crazy, this is the way to go! Great Eagle quality, little bit more weight but lots of savings.

Ordered a full Eagle drivetrain this summer and upgraded to the XX1 chain, but this came with the complete set so it is a backup. Hopefully won't have to use it, but good to know it is there.

Upgraded my drivetrain to Eagle this summer and wanted a little weight savings and bling to the bike. Went with the gold XX1 Chain and love it so far. Wondering how the durability will be based upon other reviews, but only time will tell.

Read the reviews below. These pedals are super grippy, make you feel like you are clipped in and a great transition for me from clips. Super happy. Since I can't ride clips due to ACL issues this summer I ended up putting these on my Niner RTL 9 RDO gravel bike and my SC Bronson C and love them. Only issue I have seen with both pairs is there is a rubber seal on the pedal that is meant to protect the spindle in the peddle that has ripped or come off of each set. Not a major issue, but will see what it does to the pedals after a couple months of riding. Overall great pedal!

So initial thoughts here as I haven't actually had a chance to ride with the helmet yet. However, I have the Super 3R Mips and wore that all last season. When I saw this one coming out I wanted something a little beefier and a stronger chin-bar. This one definitely as lived up to that. Obviously a little bit heavier than my 3R, but that is to be expected. Newer and stronger construction on the latches that connect and detach the chin-bar so I feel like I am not going to break them. Overall great construction and pumped to update this review later in the summer after I have had a chance to wear it a few times.

Just undergoing ACL reconstruction 8 weeks ago I needed to ditch the clips and learn how to ride flats. Was a bit hesitent at first, but after picking up these shoes... I am absolutely in love! Typical FiveTen design and style so not the lightest shoe out there and has a wide toe box, which I love! But the Stealth Mi6 rubber though, so grippy. Very well surprised. Feel like I am clipped in and super comfortable on the minimal downhills I can ride for right now. Really can't go wrong with this shoe.
