I got a set of theese about a week ago from a friend who won them in photo competition. The first thing that i noticed was the size and that they have igus bushings (teflon baearings). As with my straitline defacto pedals that share the same type of bearings and having them from 2007 and i only did one rebuild and replaced 0 pins. So i'm confident that the bearings will last a while. And some amount of play in the axle is normal for theese type of bearings and isn't even noticable when you have your feet on the pedals. I only did a few rides with the harriers on a hardtail allmountain bike but the grip is up there with the defactos, but being even wider, the harriers take the favourite spot for now. One thing worth mentioning is the locking nut on the axle with which you can tighten the pedal when the bearings seals develop play. We'll se about durability but except that, they might just be the best pedals you can buy.

I always "stuck" to 5.10 but it's sad to hear that a shoe program that was so successful is being canceled. The only real competition to the 5.10 lineup and I might just buy a pair of links if I can still get my hands on them

Added a product review for Chromag Ranger Stem 10/26/2013 11:41 AM

The ultimate stem

Rating:

The Good: Lightweight, great design, canadian made ofcourse :) and stiff

The Bad: There is no 35mm option, price

Overall:

It does cost alot but I've just bought the third one. I have one on my freeride bike (black 40mm) and I've had one on my fr/am hardtail (gold 50mm). I've currently sold my fr/am hardtail bike to my friend and am in process of building myself a new one, so I ordered a red 50mm chromag ranger stem. The thing is, I've been so impressed with the performance of this stem, that when I was looking at every other manufacturer's high end stem I still could not get over the fact that I wasn't buying chromag. So in the end, when nothing could even remotely compare to the ranger stem I just ordered a new one :)

You can run any width handlebar with this stem without feeling any flex despite the small screws and thin walls. Seems that the thing being cnc'd out of a solid block of high quality aluminium and by a company with that much experience in that field (north shore billet makes the stems and some other parts for chromag) the result should be nothing short of impressive. Although there is a stem from chromag for more extreme riding (chromag hifi) I never felt like the ranger wouldn't be able to withstand anything I threw at it. I would recommend that for extreme use you run the shortest version, just because of the shorter leverage resulting in less stress on the stem.

I've been riding this year with the accuri and i was stoked as f*** Design is killer and you get a good field of view. Fit is great for the giro remedy and 661 evolution,... To cut the long story short, this is a great product and doesn't have much competition

I don't really understand what difference that would make since i usually use only the 3 fastest gears for downhill...
