The Good: Simple trouble free rotor. Stays straight as well. I have had it on a dirt jump bike with Hope M4 brakes. have no trouble with this rotor at all. Rotor was used with Avid mechanical brakes before the Hope's. Thought I might need to get a new rotor for M4's but this one has worked great.
The Bad: No issues to speak of.Overall Review: Nice simple rotor. Can also be a good low cost back-up rotor for travel.
The Good: Have had this on my dirt jump bike for 2 years. It's been great. Stiff and solid. Never have to mess with it. I have the white version and it has a durable finish. Black is probably even better. Nice looking stem too. Never worry about, it just works.
The Bad: Maybe a few more length options. nit-picking here, Can't think of a bad thing.Overall Review: Great stem and would not hesitate to recommend it.
The Good: Have had them for several years in 2 different wheel sets and have had no problems at all and they have seen a lot of use and some jumps and drops and rough terrain. mine have always been built with brass nipples. I had a third wheel set with straight gauge spokes and I had a bad case and broke several spokes. These seem much tougher.
The Bad: Nothing i can think.Overall Review: Nice strong spokes i will continue to use and when I get new wheels I will use these spokes again.
The Good: Easy to set up. Once dialed in they work nicely. Lever feels pretty good. Rotor seems fairly strong.
The Bad: Mine would be all set up and work good but it only last a month or so and then they felt terrible. lever pulled to bar and no stopping power. After I would re-set them up they would be good again but only for a short while. Tired new pads but no difference. Might have been cable constantly stretching and maybe should have tried a new cable but ended up just getting something else.Overall Review: OK basic brake for light use.
The Good: This bike climbs like a billy goat! It is incredibly responsive.
The Bad: The Rocket Ron tires are very light, but tend to wash out easily in off-camber turns. They are fine for the back, but replace the front asap or your face will hurt. The handlebars could also be lighter.Overall Review: I LOVE this bike. After dealing with the annoying maintenance issues of Specialized's Brain shock, I was ready for a hard tail. I love how simple it is - you just go outside and ride...that's it...as it should be. Back to the joys of riding like you are a 10-year-old. Basically, if you aren't riding down mountains all day and can shell out the cash, pick one of these up - it will be worth it. And if you have trouble climbing hills like me, be prepared to be shocked how easy climbs become.
The Good: 1. All mountain weight weenie shoe- they feel light! 2. Fit and finish are all Shimano- super nice 3. They are a great value at Vital's retail partners.<br /> 4. Sizing is spot on, since they use the Euro chart and it offers fractions of sizes.<br /> 5. The ratchet release is the best I've used.<br /> 6. Toe box is roomy, but not sloppy.<br /> 7. Heel retention is perfect!<br />
The Bad: 1. The accents could have been black - fashion slave<br /> 2. White shoes make my feet look big and they aren't - that's what she said<img src='/assets/emoticons/wink.png' /><br />Overall Review: To preface this review I am coming off of the Mavic Alpine XL so #enduro. I went to this shoe...
