Familiarity: I've used it several times

I use this primarily on my pedal threads. The spindle is titanium and I do not trust using just grease to prevent the titanium/aluminum from fusing. Of course you can use just about any anti-seize, but I have a fondness for Motorex products that's carried over from the motorcycle part of my life. The Swiss make good stuff.

I have this paired with dumonde grease (grease not necessary unless you want to reduce hub noise) per i9's service recommendations. It's a straightforward product and you get enough to perform many services. Good stuff, will buy again when the time comes.

Purchased this due to the recommendation on industry nines service video for the hydra hubs. It does what they said it would, quiets the hub a bit more than just the oil. This is all subjective but I prefer less noise from my hubs while others love the buzz. I suggest you checkout some of the fairly comprehensive youtube comparison videos to see the difference if you are considering this for industry nine hydra hubs.

So far so good
4 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I only have a couple rides one these so far, but they have a good feel to them being mounted on a 30.5id rim (2.4" front and rear). I wanted to try something other than the oh so familiar Maxxis line so I ventured into Continentals territory. So far so good. A very tight fitting tire, but they have held the air well. This is the newest version of the tire (slightly different tread and apex protection) which if doing research online you need to be aware of since a lot of info out there is regarding the older variant. In the newer version they improved on the negatives you will encounter noted in online posts. Made in Germany at a competitive price with good rubber, not much else to say.

Good Stuff
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have the premixed bottled version (the bottle has markings for measuring out the proper ratio) and purchased this concentrate to refill the bottle. After only one use I was sold and placed an order for the concentrate. It removes crud effectively and doesn't leave any residue behind, plus it smells pretty good. Safe on every part of your precious bike. Definitely recommend this stuff.

Great alternative to MIPS
5 5

Familiarity: I've used it several times

This replaces my non MIPS Troy lee design A1 in M/L. So I went with M/L with this guy and the fit is perfect. I tried on a couple mips helmets in the past but really didn't like the feel of the liner. This is the perfect remedy to that. Has a standard liner with the same protection of MIPS. Marketing or not, I'll spend a few extra bucks to potentially prevent damage to my brain. I also like the Kevlar layer to protect from penetration. Fit and finish is good, and to be honest POC wasn't even on my radar I was looking to get a Smith forefront 2 until I stumbled upon this one. I ride with non cycling specific sunglasses and have zero issues with clearance (Oakley holbrooks, and Smith Outlier Xl's). Can't comment on goggle usage, it has a back strap to hold them, but I doubt the visor when fully raised has enough clearance to store them. Overall love the helmet.

Quality bar
4 5

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

I'm docking 1 star due to it being made in China (like most other carbon bars) from a company who boasts about product being made in the US. Besides that small detail this bar is a huge improvement to the aluminum Raceface bar that came with my v2 Bronson. This is my first carbon bar so I can't really compare it to others, I can only comment that I like it and that it oozes quality. Still deciding whether or not I should cut it down to the 780mm that the previous bar was or keep it at 800mm. I'll ride it a good bit at 800 before I make that decision.

Motorex makes good products and this is quality general purpose grease. The 850g is a big tub that should last a long time for the average rider. I suggest getting a Dualco (USA made) grease gun for it which is the company that makes the Motorex labeled grease gun.
