Familiarity: I've used it several times

I purchased this after a lot of debate over the Silca lineup. I'm happy I made the choice. The pump is solid and works flawlessly at a much friendlier price point. It has the design, fit & finish of a high end pump. Pump head has a very substantial & positive locking feel. I've had the pump about a month and have used it daily so I'm not sure of the long term durability.

If you have a bike with thru axles and no quick releases you may find this item essential. The "T" handle slides easily into multiple spots to allow for the greatest leverage. My old multi-tool is just too small to generate the leverage needed to release a stubborn thru axle. This tool fits the bill and it is light & compact.
Be aware that the tool may not come with the stated bits; mine did not come with the 6mm bit, which was the one I needed. Luckily I had a spare in my toolbox.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was riding with straight up water on my longer rides until I began having dehydration symptoms. After 1-1/2 to 2 hours on a hot and vertically challenging ride I started to notice; a sudden lack of energy, dry mouth, lack of thirst and an elevated heart rate. I assumed this was purely a hydration issue as my food intake on the bike was pretty dialed in. After a little research I realized this was more of an electrolyte depletion issue. Enter Skratch Hydration mix and problem solved!

Oh, and I should mention; the stuff tastes good! Not overpowering and sweet. Personal favorites are Lemon & Lime and Passion Fruit.

First off: I have only completed 13 rides thus far = 15hrs.

I initially had reservations about purchasing this trainer due to some percentage of reviews that address vibration and accuracy issues. So far I have had none of the known issues with my unit. The build quality of the unit seems to be exceptional.

One quirk with the Wahoo Fitness app: Initially I could not figure out how to do an "Advanced Spindown". I only had the "Spindown" option in my app on my iphone. A bike forum informed me [not Wahoo!] to tap on the spindown screen 6 times in the app to get the "Advanced" feature to show up. Weird work around, however, it did the trick. The advanced spindown is absolutely necessary as the trainer was way off target out of the box.

Once set up properly the trainer has worked great. I have been using Trainer Road and love the seamless integration with the snap. After my initial FTP test I can now perform "sweetspot" workouts that do an amazing job of getting me within inches of what feels like my max. I am very impressed by how manageable the difficult workouts are, sometimes I feel like another 3 minutes is going to be impossible but I always manage to finish. I attribute this to the accuracy with which the snap is able to apply the resistance.

I would highly recommend Trainer Road if you are the type that likes a structured plan like me.

Before every workout I do a 10 minute warmup ride followed by a spindown calibration. I check my tire pressure before each training session.

Overall I am very happy with this purchase, so far so good.

I was on the fence with this purchase. I had to replace some old delta style look pedals on my ancient steel racer and decided to swap the look classics off my carbon bike. These puppies are expensive! However, they are worth every penny. Every time I click in I am so impressed with the silky and solid clamping! Plus the clip in is so much easier than my keo classic pedals. I am glad I went with the 12nm, they are just right for me [5'-11, 150lbs]. The wide platform is appreciated and you can really feel the difference on long out of the saddle climbs. No creaking or clicking as mentioned in some other reviews. Did I mention how light these are? I loved comparing the look keo classic to these. Boat anchor vs feather.

I just hit 2000 miles with my new Lezyne Mini GPS. This is a very reliable and easy to use device. It syncs with Strava automatically and will make your life simple. I like simple. Period. This tiny, lightweight device will do everything you really need at about $100 less than the next best option. If you are on the fence, go for it.

These are a good value and definitely do the trick. Temps dropped today and the arm warmers worked great. These are well made and have a good weight fabric. Inside the sleeves is a nice soft low fleece type backing; comfy. More insulating than your typical lightweight SPF type warmers. I bought a size Medium and they fit well.
