The Good: Very comfortable for riding and walking. Paired with XT trail SPD's. Light weight with good protection..
The Bad: Nothing at allOverall Review: These are fantastic shoes. Very comfortable on and off the bike. Was a little unsure on the looks at 1st but don't notice them now.
The Good: Spiffy looking
Easy spoke replacement
The Bad: Poor warranty claim process for defective productOverall Review: Didn't get to test these out on more than one ride because they were defective, so I can't say a lot about how the non-defective ones perform. For the pair I received, the rear hub made a loud popping sound any time a new set of pawls was engaged. The three pawls did not engage the hubs teeth at the same time as they were supposed to. This will happen occasionally for any good company. That's why they have warranty policies, to maintain their reputation and happy customers. Unfortunately, their warranty policy requires you to send the product back at your own cost (~$30 for a wheel). In my case, they Read More »
The Good: Local company, good people, great bicycles.
The Bad: A few minor SNAFUs in delivering my bike just so, but such is the nature of custom work. In the end, everything was made right.Overall Review: I've been riding, building, and racing mountain bikes most of my 33 years. Without reservation, this one is my favorite. I love the geometry: the longish TT (size medium) mates perfectly with a 35mm stem, 800mm bars,and my 5'10" frame. It does not climb like a bike of its heft or trail/gravity orientation, especially with Climb Switch engaged. Pointed down is whereshe really shines of course, and I'veyet to engage Beast Mode! I mean, Gravity Mode.The lower BB and slackish HTA make for a stable, confidence-inspiring, super playful ride. The Pike Solo and CCDBI outshine any FOX suspension product I've ridden.

The Good: Versatile Rack (use on various cars and bikes easily). Can be mounted on roof, trunk, or hatchback without permanent attachment. Lightweight - Includes spare vacuum pad and pump and pump maintenance.
The Bad: $400 price tag. Does not include Cable Anchor.Overall Review: As with the other SeaSucker rack I own, I was initially very skeptical of securing my $5k+ bike to the car via vacuum cups. After some initial tugging and pulling HARD on a single cup that was attached to my roof, I instantly realized the power of the vacuum cups. Rated at 210 lbsof pull-strength per cup, the Mini Bomber has a total rating of 840 lb pull-strength which is mighty impressive in my mind. Initial setup is quite easy and just requires a quick spray of the roof top to clean it of dust/dirt, and a quick spray on the vacuum cups before installation. Each cup only takes about 10-15 pumps to reach full suction Read More »
