Review #2... since got a pair for my fiance.. ESI grips are the standard! They are the best lightweight grip on the market. While the durability from a cut/tear standpoint can be a challenge as they are so light, they are super durable from a normal wear and tear perspective. I have and will continue to use them for years!

I bought these as a temporary solution for my new 29+ setup while I decided what Fancy carbon wheel to build. After ~50 miles on them I'm pretty sure I don't need to keep looking. I easily mounted the 29x3.0 bomboloni's with a floor pump and the wheels feel plenty light and stiff. For the price point they are amazing.

This shock is money! Having come from a 32ctd, it's amazing how much more stiff/plush the fork is. Although the fork is a 27+, I purchased it for 29+. The 29x3.0 bomobloni's fit with ton's of room to spare, not sure how big you could go but I would guess 29x3.5 would fit fine.

Meh. I was hoping to peel off the Standard '17 fox Orange an replace them with black... the stickers are not close to the factory quality in several ways. They are not cut very close to the factory shape so are quite a bit larger. The quality of the material also seems sub par compared to the Factory version.

I do not have many miles on this mech yet but can say that it is by far the quietest drive train I have ever ridden. The gear range is amazing and having ridden 11spd for the last several years - a welcome relief to get a super low bailout gear while running a bigger chain ring. There are so many advantages to the new Eagle drivetrain - Nice work SRAM!

Agree 100% with what the other reviewers said but they missed what I feel is the most important feature; Eagle give you more low end compared to the 11spd cassettes which keeps you in the middle of the range. This simple change keeps the chain line much straighter and reduces the stress on the cassette during shifts - ultimately I feel it will last much longer that the 11spd xx1 drivetrain.

I decided to go full Thomson cockpit (post/stem/bars) on my new build. These bars are the first non-aluminum Thomson product I have tried. The quality seems on par with every Thomson product, although I am not 100% psyched about the finish. The carbon is super glossy while most other Thomson products have a semi-gloss finish so the match is a little off. Performance wise they great - I'll get over the glossy finish.

Thomson is the state of the art in extruded aluminum - the quality and craftsmanship is top notch. This post is crazy stiff (not a negative) it provides great feedback in steering the bike. I went with the 330mm and it is the perfect length for me. Be careful in sizing the length if you are not vertically challenged like me. It's Thomson, what else it there to say?

Thomson is the state of the art in extruded aluminum - the quality and craftsmanship is top notch. Compared to the Enve stem on my other whip the Thomson stem feels stiffer and more precise while remaining comparable in weight. Not sure what I can add other than Thomson products are truly amazing!

This is a perfect box for skis. It will fit skis up to about 195 or so. It is big enough to fit 6 pairs of adult skis and poles. Very simple to install. One person can do it. I was able to install it on my 99 outback so that the back liftgate opens all the way, but it doesn't stick out too much over the front window. The locking system works great. perfect ski box!
