DEITY Decoy LT Flat Pedal

“Greatest platforms ever”

The Good:

Ultra light weight and ultra thin, i clip my pedals noticably less now. The allen key install give them clean lines not to mention pimp factor. I've old several mag pedals and these are the lightest and thinest i've ever had.

The Bad:

just 1 or 2 more pins in the middle would make these perfect. Good luck finding the LT though. It took me a minute at first.

Overall Review:

I switched out my old crank brothers 50s and haven't looked back.

Jett Raptor Short

Featured Member Review

“Pure awesome”

The Good:

Zip vents, lots of pockets (some zipped), soft fabric on the front/top of the quad area and waist without stitching to prevent chafing, secure double snap fly, waist cinch, well contoured cut around waist, awesome construction quality

The Bad:

Chamois fits a bit odd. Short fly. Pockets are a bit shallow. Inseam doesn't quite reach the knee.

Overall Review:

This model is their XC offering. Not perfect, but significantly better than any other short in this general price range that I've tried. The first pair I grab for going on rides with lots of pedaling. Unbelievably comfy and relatively good looking. It has a supple shell, with a soft hand and a high TPI like weave that feels softer than the Jett Hornet (AM model; ) and the Lightning (DH model). The inseam comes down to about 3" above the knee in 28" and leaves that large amount of skin, in the area between my knee/shin pads and the bottom of the short legs, that typically gets covered by other brands like Dakine, Read More »

Royal Rivet Riding Short

Featured Member Review

“Bombproof shorts”

The Good:

Thick, super tough, nylon shell with a water resist PU coating. Double button fly. Roomy cut. Good amount of usable pockets. Waist cinches.

The Bad:

XS/Sm fits a bit large. No zip vents. Gets a bit warm if you're pedaling at all. Relatively short inseam. Short fly.

Overall Review:

These have no chamois/removable liner. They fit a bit loose, but I suspect they were meant to be worn with padded shorts like the Fox Launch or 661 Bomber undershort. The waist cinches sufficient to keep 'em from falling down. I usually dislike brown, but liked the brown color from last year; this black is rather bland looking. These are meant for bombing DH, saving your skin on falls; these will be too warm if you're riding AM and riding up. The inseam isn't long enough to cover all the skin between the short and knee/shin guards and the fly is a bit shorter than I'm used to.

iXS Hack Softy Tschugg WC Elbow and Knee Combo Knee/Shin Pad

“best pads I have had.”

The Good:

These pads are so comfortable and light that you dont even notice there on. Whether you hit dirt, concrete, trees, rocks, and etc these pads take the blow. the are tough hard to rip and the stay on your arms/legs.

The Bad:

nothing and I have had these pads for a whole season no damage to them yet but to my body, yeah.

Overall Review:

buy them while there instock because once they get out there i bet it will be hard to find them

Jett Strike Short

“Revised for 2011”

The Good:

Thanks to you and others who have commented on the chamois being a bit big, we slimed it down for 2011.

The Bad:

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Overall Review:

As for the thunder thighs, we do have some steep hills here in Fort Collins!

Jett Strike Short

“Well made but...”

The Good:

Quality material and build. Cheap for short/chamois combo

The Bad:

Ordered the 32". The short fit well but the chamois was far too large. It fit my brother whose 35".
Kudos to Jett for sending me another chamois FOC but this one didn't fit me as well.

Overall Review:

Suitable for thunder thighs ONLY!

Bell Drop (2011) Full Face Helmet

“great value comfort and protection level”

The Good:

looks, protection for a bike rated helmet, price

The Bad:

color options

Overall Review:

Based on their moto helmet designs, the Drop is aesthetically pleasing to the eye. The ASTM rating adds a higher level of protection than CSPC standards. The plush liner inside wicks sweat well and creates a good fit. The Drop is one the best helmets on the market at $130.

Specialized SX Trail Frame

“sx trail complete”

The Good:

Bike feels amazing! Bought a 2009 SX Trail 1 loved it out of the box , but slightly bigger bars were a nice addition. Will probably swap the chainguide to an e13 and someday the Domain to a Van RC2, but what I have is working awesome.

The Bad:

Little bit narrower bars on mine, but since 2010 thats been fixed

Overall Review:

FSR linkage rocks, loved bringing it to Diablo and Highland and local trails can't go wrong

2011 Cove STD Bike

“if this price is a complete bike than its a steal!”

The Good:

Demoed this bike at Trestle bike park, Rode it super hard and it just wanted more. Fast, felt good off the big jumps and drops.

The Bad:

price, i think this price is just for the frame, Winterpark bike shop was selling a complete for $6k

Overall Review:

good bike, but the price is up there, if you have the money, then buy it!
