Marzocchi 888 RC3 EVO Titantium Fork

“Back to their fine form”

C138_92830710_1266894008

The Good: Low maintenance
simple axle
plush
feel

The Bad: direct mount compatibility (i think they have changed for 2012 to boxxer style)

Overall Review: had the original 04 888s and loved them, then went to and been on Boxxer till i got the 2010 888rc3 evo Ti. Im 100% never ever EVER going back to a Boxxer fork. I live in Whistler riding and racing as much as possible. I ride a lot and can happily say my 888s out preform my Boxxers and require little to no maintenance. 1-2 rebuilds each season compared to a rebuild every 2nd week on the Boxxer. People need to loose the old stigma of the Marzocchi problems of previous years. My 'new and improved' 2010 Boxxer team came with no oil, warranty return, rebound cartridge seized, warranty return, seized again, return, arched snapped on a crank it up berm, warranty return, then got rid of them thank god. Now after 2 full Whistler seasons on the 888 they still feel like new

Giro Remedy Full Face Helmet

“Don't like how it fits”

C138_99411370_1265259776

The Good: Good looking helmet, very strong, removable pads.

The Bad: The fits, the large its to big and the medium doesn't even fit.

Fly Racing Chaos Full Face Helmet

“Chaos the best helmet for the price”

C138_l27399

Overall Review: great helmet for the price, if you are thinking about getting this helmet do it !!!!! You will not be disappointed.

Azonic Carbon Skad Full Face Helmet Full Face Helmet

“O'Neal Carbon Skad helmet”

C138_he265g00

The Good: Light, carbon fiber looks good... that's about it.

The Bad: Very cheap feeling, bad design, loose fit, not the most protective helmet out there by any means.

Overall Review: I got this helmet hoping that it would be pretty sweet, but as soon as I took it out of the box I was disappointed. The padding on the inside is very cheap, and not at all comfortable. The cheek pads are really loose on your face and the helmet slides around a lot (yes, it was the correct size too). I had a bad crash and totally destroyed the helmet, knocking myself out in the process. It took me about two weeks to fully recover. I wised up and bought an MX helmet (Shoei VFX-W) because a mountain bike specific full face helmet comes no where near a MX helmet in terms of protection, and I really Read More »

Fox Racing V3 Full Face Helmet

“Moto for the Mountain”

C138_99501050_1267156326

The Good: If every one of your riding buddies has a TLD, this is a pretty sweet alternative. Great looking, good paint (doesn't' scratch easily), comfortable out of the box, very light weight, moto looks.

The Bad: It's not a TLD.

Overall Review: I haven't slammed my head into a tree yet, so I just have to assume it works properly, but it is light, fits well out of the box, great ventilation, and good looks. Highly recommended.

Troy Lee Designs D3 Composite Helmet

“me like alot”

C138_13tld_d3_mirage_blue_04

The Good: you just feel incredibly safe, my previous helmet was a sixsixone evolution and you really feel a difference, the tld is lots tighter around any spot of you head

The Bad: closing the helmet ain't really easy whit a complicated system

Overall Review: just get it it is worth the money, or wait for a promotion on crc like i did ;)

Spank Spike Pedal

Featured Review

“Spank Spike Pedals”

C138_spike_pedal_side

The Good: Huge platform, but close to the cranks so they don't stick out too far. They are the most comfortable flat pedals I have ridden. Grip is amazing! Low profile and the the shape of the edges and the platform deflect hits on rocks and roots.

The Bad: Tiny bit of a squeak on the first 10 minutes of the first ride. Apparently some of the very first batch had this problem. I have not had a problem since that first ride. Spank has built a reputation of excellent customer service, so if it turns into a problem I'm sure they will take care of it.

Overall Review: Well worth the money! I have been using zuzu's, used wellgo, old school tioga, funn, and tried some 5050's, and these pedals are the best thing I have ever put under my feet. I ride only in flats and my feet have never been so happy. The grip is amazing, and the size and low profile make mashing on the pedals standing, or ginding in the saddle way safer feeling since they don't flip. They look super cool too and I have been getting compliments every time I ride. Very confidence -inspiring pedals! ************************************************************************************************** 10/31/2012 After riding these Read More »

MRP G2 Chainguide

“Old but not the worst”

C138_l38799

The Good: Light
Good looking
Easy to find used

The Bad: Had some chain drops

Overall Review: I had some chain drop, but I guess the chain was too old and long . According to me a SRS+ or a LG1+ are a slightly better.
