I've been really happy with these shoe covers, Castelli makes some really great winter riding gear and these are no exception. They are plenty warm around freezing temps and will keep your feet dry. They do run slightly small so size up if you're in between sizes.

Top notch tri suit, with an excellent fit. The rear pockets are just the right size in case you need to carry a couple of gels with you on the run. Tested on a half 70.3 tri and the chamois provides the right amount of comfort during the bike and becomes unnoticeable on the run. Overall, the suit fits like a glove with out any chafing issues. Will update review once I test the suit on a full 140.6 tri.

Shimano cleats that get the job done and last quite a long time. If you're not sure which color to pick up, most people go with the yellow cleats (6 degree float), unless you know you're looking for the Red (fixed float).

I've been very pleased with this saddle, it ticks most of the boxes for me. Similar to what a TT or a Tri saddle accomplishes, the Selle smp saddle strives to relieve pressure from the pudendal nerve. The way the saddle curves from the rear towards the front provides a nice lever of hip support, something I really liked. All of the selle smp saddles offer a similar design, make sure you get the right width and level of padding and you will be very satisfied. Would recommend.

I've been using this scale consistently for a couple of months now, here are my honest thoughts. Out of the box, the scale is well built, looks clean and comes with four AA batteries which are supposed to last 9 months.

Setup - Next you have to connect the scale to your WiFi network, this step can be a bit tricky. You must have the Garmin connect app downloaded on your phone/table/computer. Garmin connect then recognizes the scale via Bluetooth and connects it to your wireless network. Once you have this set up, everything else is a breeze.

Interface – If you are the only user of the scale, you just step on barefoot and the onboard screen spits out your weight, BMI, body fat %, muscle mass in lbs, bone mass in lbs, and your body water %.

Multiple Users – Every user must have their own Garmin connect account so that the scale can differentiate between each users (the scale can recognize up to 16). In order to add a user, you must be friends on Garmin connect, which then allows you to grant that person access to the scale. As long as you both aren’t within 10-20 lbs. of each other’s weight, the scale does a good job at automatically recognizing each user.

Pros – Keeps track of your weigh ins through Garmin connect, this makes it very easy to see how your body changes over time. For serious athletes, I find this most useful in helping keep a target weight. When training starts to get intense, one may start to lose weight, or vice versa on active recovery weeks. This is also a great weight loss tool, as it shows how your muscle mass varies as you lose weight and gain muscle. (Keep in mind all of these metrics aren’t going to be exact, but will help give you a general idea).

Cons – Tricky to set up and add users. Body fat % and body water % metrics aren’t too accurate, but you really can’t expect too much from an at home scale. Must be diligent in switching users if you are of similar weight, or your data will be skewed.

If you’re looking to more closely track and keep and easy log of your weight metrics, this will be another solid tool to help you reach your goals. This will work especially well if you’re already in the Garmin ecosystem with bike computers/ watches.
