Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
You can find me most everyday riding one of bikes! MTB, Road, even a little TT and Fatbiking in the winter. I have my own personal fleet to keep me busy. We have three dogs and Ridley (named after the bicycle) gets to spend time out on the trail with me in either snow or dirt. I also spend some time in the winter snowboarding w/ a little cross country skiing tossed in for good measure. My MTB of choice is currently my Ibis HD4. Point it down the trail or in some cases lack there of and hit fast and loose, the rougher the better.
I started running Rotor oval rings on my road bikes almost almost 10 years ago and when I was able to get an oval for my Cinch crank I jumped right on it.
I have found that with the oval rings I do prefer to run my chain a little longer than I normally would on my Eagle setup.
Oval's don't feel oval they feel round and when you hit that super steep climb you'll appreciate what will be the new normal.
I would have given this a 5 star review but the set up instructions could really be improved.
A little tinkering and I was able to get it adjusted properly, I am also pairing it with the LEATT body armor jersey.
comes with several adapters for the tilt of the back piece and you can also adjust the front and back piece for and aft for the right fit.
In case it matters I have two separated shoulders and it did not bother me at all.
I'm 5'9 42" chest 175 lbs. L/XL purchased
What a great way to keep yourself safe. I looked at a lot of the chest and back body armor setups and part of the reason this went to the top of my list is the fact that the zipper goes to the side of the chest and not up the center. What if you happen to take the steer tube straight center to the chest. An added feature that I didn't realize till picking it up is that it has a pad in the back protector that can be removed to accommodate the LEATT neck brace and it also has a couple of loops to hold the neck brace as well.
With the Idea of stepping up my protection game I love this piece so far. I could feel how well ventilated it is on the lifts and it never felt like I was bogged down or padded up like a football player but I did feel protected.
The size chart is awful in my opinion and does not list a chest size only height. My chest is 42" i'm 5'9 32" inseam and 175lbs. The L/XL fit just fine, perhaps a bit loose but not so much I would want to go down in size.
I really like this glove. No velcro nice fit and finish and feel relativity cool.
The size chart listed for these gloves in my opinion is awful according to the chart I would be a 3xl which is not the case. My hand circumference is 8.6" and the XL is the way to go. If you like your gloves super tight then you could swing the L.
I try and do most of my rides without wearing any sort of pack and these bib liners help me get that done.
3 pockets on the back plus the water bladder / back protector pocket along with a small pocket on the lower leg.
Chamois feels fine, and according to the size chart I should be in a Medium but I feel that might be a bit misleading. at 5'9" 175 lbs I have a 34 inch waist but felt the legs are a bit tight and the should straps could be a bit longer or more stretchy.
Once I'm out on the trail I don't notice it. My real only complaint is that I would like maybe the side back pockets to be a tick lower for easier access, I'm simply not really flexible in the arms / shoulders.
That all being said I did order the next size up.
I like wearing long sleeve jersey, always makes me feel a bit more protected when riding on the trail, plus with the Utah hot sun it adds some UV protection.
Jersey is super lightweight very breathable and the material is nice and stretchy, this is my new favorite jersey to grab off of the hanger.
I checked out the size chart, measured my chest (42") and ordered the large. The fit is spot on.
Very nice helmet, I picked it up in a Large (normally I wear medium) and according to the size chart I should be in Medium with this helmet also.
For such a great price I thought I would see if it would fit at such a great deal. No luck returned before really using.
Picked these up for the Woman of the house. Her last pair lasted 3 years and with 510 quality I'm sure these will last just as long.
She love's these shoes and rides in them all the time.
So you need a full face for hitting the lifts or just out riding something that needs a little extra protection well look no further.
The POC Coron Air Spin has a great fit, ample padding and with the ultra cool *Breakaway visor you won’t be left searching for new screws to reattach it. I will say however that with the visor being able to breakaway without breaking mounting a GoPro to it does not work very well. The visor tends to bounce a little bit from the extra weight.
I pulled up the size chart, looped the tape measure around my old noggin and it was spot on for fit. I measure out to be 57.5cm or 22.6” and the M/L fit perfect. Just tight enough in the checks to make you feel like you have a little puffer fish action going on.
Fortunately I have not crashed in it yet but I do feel with the Spin (POC’s own version of MIPS) I will have more than adequate protection. On a side note I also wear a LEATT Neck brace and had no issues with it getting in the way while riding.
decent tool to pound on the crown races. It's heavy and solid and will most likely outlast any bike I build
Smack Crack and Bam the star nut is installed. The tip that threads into the star nut is replaceable should you break it off. The only thing that could make the tool better would be a guide for starting out straight.
I ordered a couple pairs and returned these before using. nice goggles I just preferred the Chromopops.
Keeps your forks looking pristine when pulling apart to add spacers.
Pretty simple it's a tool that get's the job done.
I really like the shorts and the adjuster buckle on the side.is really sweet, but for me I need the belt loops. I hook my chin bar for my convertible helmet so no loops it's got to go back.
They do feel like the fit a little big in my opinion. This is going of the size chart.
