Scott Gartman's Bio

I've spent the majority of my life in the frigid rust-belt. Made the move to Utah and am not looking back! If you're looking for some great riding - come visit Utah! I've ridden as well as raced Road, Cross, and MTB. I've done long rides and short rides. Group rides, solo rides. I enjoy helping those that are just getting into the sport just as much as seasoned veterans. If you have any questions about cycling, bikes, bike parts, dating advice(jk) please hit me up!

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

Light, comfortable, looks great. Best of all, very well ventilated. I just picked this helmet up after using KASKs the past few years, and haven't ridden in it just yet, so my rating may change, but trying it on a few times I am really looking forward to using this helmet.

I have had really good luck with Giro gloves. These get a few nothches down in my voting. This particular glove is a little tricky to get on and off- has a pretty snug wrist opening compared to other Giro gloves.

I was on xc race shoes(shimano xc90) I really liked the stiff sole, but they were terrible for any walking whatsoever. I picked these Giros up and am very satisfied, they are much more walkable and very stiff. Pretty narrow and not a ton of room in the toe box which works okay for me. size 11 shoe gets me a 45 in these.

Great jersey for when its uncomfortably mild. Windstopper is great with some armwarmers (GORE windstopper ones work great). The jersey is a little long as are the sleeves. 5'11 170lbs size Large. Nice pieces of reflective bits.

Great early winter choice

A great early winter glove. I would find these perfect for 45-55 degrees. Great dexterity and no bulk whatsoever. This is a great fleece glove, and I can post my Instagram photos with the touchscreen compatible fingers. No silly Velcro closure, just a reliable stretchable cuff, and no padding( my preference). Would not recommend for much colder than 45 degrees, but excellent above that.

My first test has taken this on a brisk 48 degree day. I climbed up Big Cottonwood Canyon gaining about 2000ft elevation gain before plummeting back down. The Windstopper did what it is supposed to do. Stop the wind. I think this jersey will have a range of appropriate temperatures depending on baselayer used. I could see that being in the 40-55 range most comfortably. I really liked the cuffs on the sleeves- perfect for tucking in or putting over gloves- depending on which gloves you have.

My favorite feature was the built in ‘vest/inner liner’- This was perfect as the climb up I was heating up quick and opened the outer layer up. Zipped it back up at the turnaround and let the Windstopper do its thing on the descent. 5’11 175lbs the large fits great.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Everybody could use this.- an essential piece. It packs so small. I use it for hiking, camping, and biking. Super lightweight, and a nice light or just-in-case shell to own. I would recommend. Slimmer fit than some other patagonia stuff- I still went with a medium and it works great!

Fantastic choice of wheels

zzzzzzzzzzzzzz
That's the sound you'll make as you whiz by with your Industry Nine hubs. Terrific engagement. The wheels are stiff, reliable, the hubs are fantastic. I enjoy the buzz because I'm a 5 year old on the inside. I have these mated to my Pivot Mach 429 trail and have been thoroughly impressed. Had ENVE m60 HV and Ibis Carbon wheels previously.

Give me a ring or shoot me an electronic mail if you want to chat wheels for your off-road bicycle.
