There may be more expensive and "better" wheelsets out there, but I have yet to find anything available that compares to the quality and value of these Stans Arch MK3. The 26mm internal width gives a great tire profile to most tires that aren't of the "plus" variety. The new Neo Hubs are a great improvement over there previous hub design. I would definitely recomend this wheelset for anyone looking to upgrade from there stock wheels while not breaking the bank.

This is my third Lezyne floor pump and by far the best that I have gotten. Large volume, I can seat tubeless tires with ease, accurate gauge, it is consistent and doesn't jump around at all, and the ABS 2 chuck is super simple and quick to use. My only complaint is that while the 3" gauge is large and easy to read, it can be tough to dial in air pressures in the mid twenty range. The gauge would be awesome for roadies, not so much for the MTN folk.

This bike is the real deal. When riding it, I often think of my favorite ski, the Moment Bibby. Stay with me here for a second and I'll come back to the bike. The Bibby has developed a somewhat of a cult like following for its ability to charge all over the mountain, while still maintaining a playful feel for every little stash you can find. When riding the 5.5 all that I can think about is that this is "The Bibby of Bikes!" She likes to be ridden hard, but when you do you are rewarded with amazing speed while still being playful off of every trail feature.

I was a bit concerned going with the carbon version vs the Turq build, specifically the Fox performance suspension vs the factory suspension. Thus far I have had no complaints with the performance suspension. I may end up adding a few volume spacers in the rear shock, but that would be the case regardless of the performance/factory.

I also had some concerns with the wheelset that the Carbon comes with. So far the wheelset has held up well: solid, durable and stiff with the boost rear hubs. My only complaint is the lack of engagement in the rear hub, but that is to be expected with a wheelset in this price range.

Overall I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I can't think of any bike that would suit my style of riding. From all day epics, to techy downhills. This thing is a do it all bike.

Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I owned my last pair of Giro bike shoes for a good two seasons of biking (over 150 days), and the shoes proved themselves time and again. They provide a tight fit, and the sole makes them perfect when its time to hike a bike. From previous experience I knew to size up . Although I haven't used these shoes often, my other Giro's proved to last through more serious mnt. bike adventures.
