Perry Hall's Bio

I come from a long line of non-cyclists, and found peace in getting out of the house on two wheels as early as I can remember. I didn't begin to really ride mountain bikes until high school and from there, it was a downhill(ha!) spiral. Racing in college for the UVM mountain team, living with all mountain bikers, and riding all around New England got me fully hooked. I moved to Utah in 2009 to work at Alta and ski, then made the permanent move back specifically for the snow. Needless to say, I was beyond overwhelmed by the amount of amazing riding the Wasatch and Utah have, and absolutely love having such stellar trails a short drive away.


My Top 5 trails I have ridden:
1. Whole Enchilada, Moab, UT
2. Horsetheif Bench/Marys, Fruita, CO
3. Perry Hill, Waterbury, VT (RASTA MAN)
4. Mobb Hill/Saxon Hill, Jericho/Essex, VT (Tie)
5. Sugarbush/Highland MT, Warren, VT/Tilton, NH (Tie)

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Alright, so I've been a dedicated Shimano pedal rider since 2001, minus a brief (6 month) stint in Speedplay on the road bike, and one terrible decision to try crank brothers, which lasted ~2 months. I'm a die hard, a loyalist, and had a hard time committing to these.
That being said, this is a review after a total of three rides, so there are still things that I am working through which I believe are just my old habits of using a single pedal design for 17 years.

These things are fantastic. Solid connection to the shoe, solid platform, enough float, and light! I'm still having some difficulties finding the mechanism upon trying to clip in, however that should go away with more use. The mud clearing tech is insane, after a sloppy ride in some nasty clay this weekend, my cleats always locked in.

I would highly suggest these pedals for those looking towards a new upgrade or their first pedal.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Which is a good thing. Finally, a wider profile tire that doesnt feel like you're riding down the road in your grandpas 1930s model A. These tires feel like a REAL mtb tire. Stiff sidewalls, good rolling resistance, and just the best grip out there. Definitely a worthy front tire if your bike will clear it.

This thing is a rocketship. Compliant frame, with stiffness where you needs it allows for awesome power transfer and get up and go, but provides all day comfort for long days in the saddle exploring off the beaten path. eTap keeps the shifting light, crisp, and reduces a ton of weight. Standard cockpit components include Zipp post/stem/bar and are adequate for the job, but you can always reach out to our CS team to get an upgrade done if needed!

I rode this as a demo, and am really tempted to get one to be my road bike. It will do road and gravel adventures extremely well, and could probably handle a cross race or two without any issues.
