Deity Enoki Grip

“Best Grips Ever”

C138_97354370_1278699377

The Good: Mushroom style supper grippy, comfortable, lock-rings hold strong, included bar end caps

The Bad: flanges can get in way of shifters

Overall Review: Like many have always run with ODI, but I thought I would give the Deitys a shot. Was totally worth it! Mushroom grip is great. Never feel like I am going to lose grip and are just as comfortable on a short and long ride. Lock-rings are strong and use a larger bolt compared to ODI, so don't worry about stripping them. Love that Deity includes the bar end caps, like that the just fill in bar hole instead of cover over the entire bar end; lock-ring and all. And you can't beat the price! $20 is inexpensive and replacements grips are even cheaper! Love these and will be staying with Deity for the long haul.

2014 Trek Fuel EX 9 29 Bike

“The perfect bicycle!”

C138_2014_trek_fuel_ex_9_29_bike

The Good: Everything

The Bad: Nothing really

Overall Review: I used to ride downhill and bmx and moved over to xc and road cycling a few years ago. For me this really is the perfect bike, although I did change the cockpit, seat and post to make it suit my endurance riding style. I have used it for everything from road racing(yes I did a 200k race in just over six hours on this thing) to long distance xc and bike park riding. Putting a 50mm stem when playing around at bike parks and it jumps and shreds down technical downhill sections like it was nothing, even keeping up with proper dh bikes. Only problem I've had is round really tight berms where the 29er wheels aren't quite as nimble as 26ers.

Crank Brothers Iodine 2 Wheelset

“Getting Better”

C138_69003

The Good: Light Weight,<br /> Strong Rim,<br /> Easy Tubeless setup,<br /> One off design

The Bad: Takes a proprietary spoke and nipple combo that will need to be sourced from a direct CB dealer or from CB themselves. On the plus side, they are all the same length so keeping extras is simple. Will true and tighten with universal spoke wrench (PT Black)

Overall Review: There is well known idea within the mountain biking community that Crank Brothers makes parts...
