DO NOT purchase these tires. I have had them mounted tubeless on Zipp hoops and both front and back have developed several strange bubbles in the casing. This puts me at risk of a catastrophic blow out. This is clearly a design/engineering flaw and Hutchinson needs to pull these from the market ASAP.

The Giro Code has a well deserved excellent reputation. I have owned northwave, shimano, and sidi shoes, and the Giro has been the best in every regard. I am coming from Sidi Spider mesh shoes, and the Code kills them. It does so in the following ways: it is lighter, it is stiffer, the Velcro straps are more robust, the heal is deeper, the provided insoles are far superior, it is cheaper, and the cleats are better. The sidis have the edge in ventilation and replaceability of the cleats though. The sidis are also made in Italy, and the Giros are made in China if you care. Also, I will hazard a guess that the sidi toe protector is tougher than the Code's. I wear 40.5 in sidi and 41 in giro, so yes, the giros do run a little small.

I would guess that if there is one company that has eaten into Sidi's market share, it is Giro!

I am usually a big fan of Giordana. When I saw this jersey on sale, I bought one in size small. I am 5'6", 130 pounds. While the jersey does look great, I cannot agree with the other reviews here. This jersey is too long in the back, and the pockets are too loose, causing even light weight items to sag and jiggle around the like crazy. The front material and the sleeves are excellent, but the back material is frankly scratchy. Because high end jerseys like this one use so many different materials and panels, seams can become very annoying if they are not completely flat locked or bonded. I can't believe I have to return a Giordana product, but alas! Unfortunately, I think there are better jerseys at this price point or even for less. Bummer.

I set up a right sided XTR shifter for 1 by 10 hardtail. I have to agree with the other reviewer regarding the flimsy feel of the paddles. I do like the light, quick action of the thumb downshift, but the upshift paddle does feel very flimsy and is stiff to operate. I think I expect more from the XTR level, but overall, the shifter works fine.

Previous review is spot on. Good quality, well conceived, but poorly executed. For a company as experienced as SP, this jacket is disappointing. Fit is weird with tight chest and arms but billowy lower chest and abdomen. Too short in back and yes, what a strange collar! Way to loose. Overall, fit alone drops this jacket 2 stars.

Lock down zippers on the cuffs but NOT on the main zipper?!?! What are they thinking other than saving cost. Charge a few more dollars and put good quality zippers on the main body.

The membrane is moderately breathable, but not as good as windstopper. I would say it is more breathable than the Rapha softshell I had that cost much more.

The good. Well, the red looks great. I do like the two large pocket design on the back. The mesh liner is also well done. Chest pocket is great. The sleeves overall fit me well and are just the right length.

Too bad. Spend a bit more and stay away from this jacket until SP redesigns it.
