I just got these yesterday and threw them on to my whip. first words out of my mouth were, "F***ing Sweet!" Also I didn't realize that they come with another set of plates and spiked pins....once again...Fing sweet! Unless your looking to drop dimes for Twenty6's or some other Ti flats; the 5050xx will do work without compromising your consumer morales. Cheers and go ride!!!
Thes gloves are perfect for every day commuting. Nose wipes thumbs help on those cold days. Will be getting a second pair when these finally pass to glove heaven. They are warm weather gloves, but I have used them a couple times when I forgot my winter liners.
Great alternative from the staigh values that usually come stock on Camelbaks. I cut the hose right below the stock valuse. Use a lighter or gas stove to heat the end lightly; warm the plastic I should say. Be careful not to allow the hose to touch the flame it will burn the plastic and you will have to start over. I usually just take a lighter and rotate the hose over the flame. Key is to place the valve on when the plastic is still warm. To quickly harden the plastic for a great seal; i submere it in a cup of ice water. Make the plastic harden around the valve.
