Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got one of the complete versions of this and so far I love it. I've been riding it for a few months and so far so good. It climbs really well, is surprisingly nimble for a wagon-wheeler, and descends better than expected.
I've been riding bigger bikes the past few seasons, generally 150-160mm travel. So this one is a lot different. The more efficient suspension design and steeper angles make it climb so much better than I've been used to. But I was worried about the descending coming from the big bikes. It holds its own a lot better than I expected it to. I've had it on a few trails in Moab and all over the Salt Lake area. In Moab, it definitely got overwhelmed at times, but it was manageable if you paid attention to your line. In SLC, the trails are a lot smoother with some rock gardens thrown in, and it handles that terrain amazingly well.
Overall, I am really enjoying this bike and would recommend it to anyone looking for an all-around trail bike.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I picked this up recently to up my style game on the bike, and it worked! I look so good now in my Hawaiian shirt and the ladies are flocking!
But seriously, it is a great bike shirt while also looking like a casual button down. It's comfy, lightweight, breathes well, and fits well too. I'd say it runs a bit large. I've been having to get more XLs lately, but this fits me great (maybe even a little big) in a L, so it may be worth sizing down

These bib liners are awesome! I've been using the Pearl Izume bib liners for the past few season, which are also great, but these Giro ones have a nicer chamois and a fly! They are exactly what I have been looking for! The chamois is great, the rest of the material is nice and light and stretchy, the pockets along the back hold everything you need (spare bottle, tool, snacks, key, whatever). The only negative compared to the PI bibs is that the straps are a little more noticeable on these. They aren't uncomfortable, you can just feel they are there more. Probably just a matter of getting used to them though.
