Familiarity: I've used it several times

Bought this for a MTB all mountain / DH bike trip. Put it on and immediately said fk it is way too narrow! I always get a M helmet! Came back later and took a closer look. So I easily remove the inside web bit, four rubber fastners. I discovered two very hard pieces of plastic with some padding on each side. These were causing the problem. I simply peeled them off, put the webbing back on and it fitted like a glove. Saying that I probably voided the warranty. My wife was just about ok with hers but after about an hour of riding she also removed these two pads. Other than that it is a great helmet, the chin bar bit is easily removable and you can run a strap through it on your back pack when climbing etc.

It is a chainring, it does what it is supposed to do well. I consider myself an ok home mechanic, I went to change the chainring, such a pain compared to the previous SRAM 4 bolt system where you remove 4 bolts, slip ring over crank, put on new ring (adjust chain if necessary) and tighten four bolts. With this you must remove the crank, can be daunting to a newbie, easy to loose washers or put them on incorrectly. Now the worst bit, trying to remove tightly treaded bolts when the spindle is very close to them. It came with my Canyon Spectral, would not buy it, back to 4 bolt design for me.

I got the L, I usually take a M bib and shorts. They fit well over a chamois, wore them all day and hardly noticed them. Climbed over 2,000 ft one day, no problems. My wife also has a pair, took a spill one day, few bruises but none on her hips or tail bone so yes I reckon this is a good product, probably go a size up.

Easy to assemble and break down for storage.
The Danny M colours look great
Travelled return with an AL full suss size L MTB. No problems packing it. I did use some extra bubble wrap, foam and cardboad just to be safe. Also plenty of room for a FF helmet, 5 10 shoes, riding kit, tools, shock pump and floor pump. Easy to haul through the airport, easily fitted two of these + two suit cases in the back of a Ford Edge SUV.
Just remove wheels and bars, plenty of straps to secure it. There is a video. Note I believe that you need some sort of adaptor for a road bike.

Rode the fully loaded SOLO Carbon XX1, etc and the a similar loaded Bronson, SOLO or 5010 in the US is one sweet bike. It retailed at �8kish which is nuts for a bike, looking at a Ducatti for that money. If you got the cash then go for the 5010 / SOLO,will it make you ride any better, no, watched a kid on a clapped out Nukeproof do some crazy stuff... Get this, learn to ride it, upgrade as bits fall off...
