Every 30 days, we award the Top User Reviewer with a little prize. This month Jenson USA pitched in a whopping $250 gift card! Vital MTB member anotherbikerguy put in over a dozen solid reviews during the past 30 days, and we'd like to highlight some of the reviews that earned him the Top Reviewer spot.

  • Giro Phase Helmet - "I've used this helmet for cross-country riding and racing and trail riding, and I've even taken the visor off and used it for road racing. It has an unremarkable style which fits in anywhere. If you want your helmet to stand out in a crowd, look elsewhere, but otherwise this is a great choice for the trail/XC segment..."
  • E*Thirteen XCX Chainguide - "After a little bit of adjustment, there is very little chain rub. There's some slight noise when I use the lowest or highest cogs, but nothing that I can feel through the pedals..."
  • Troy Lee Designs Air Gloves - "They're thin enough to give me a good grip on the bar, but tough enough to keep my hands from getting torn up when I hit the ground..."
  • Panaracer Fire Pro Tire - "If you're on a budget and you need to keep your bike rolling, the Panaracer Fire tire is a surprisingly decent option as a rear tire..."
  • WTB Wolverine Tire - "The lower rolling resistance allows you to get up to speed, and it drifts predictably, so you can slide through corners without feeling out of control..."
  • Topeak Pocket Shock DXG Pump - "This is a solid shock pump for occasional home or trail-side use. I wouldn't recommend it for a shop mechanic or somebody who tinkers with their suspension all the time, because it's tricky to get a comfortable grip on this pump due to its small size..."
  • Park Tool Glueless Patch Kit - "Everybody should have a package of these in their saddlebag or backpack. They're far faster than a traditional vulcanizing patch, and they last just as long..."

Big congrats to anotherbikeguy! Thanks for helping out the riding scene with your thoughts on these products.
