Sea Otter's Best Bits (and a trip to Santa Cruz Bikes) - April 25, 2019, 8:05 a.m.

I have the F15 tool - it's great.  It's nice that you can put the tool in the sleeve for a bit more torque when required.  Bits are strong and have had no stripping issues

Loading Up the Osprey Gearkit 40L Duffel Bag - Dec. 17, 2018, 9:11 p.m.

Too many pockets!  Best type of duffel is a big duffel where you can put everything in.  I'm a big fan of High Above's stuff, where they use a mesh so all the sand and dirt (once it dries) shakes through.  The guy who owns and makes the stuff is super nice too.

Crankbrothers Synthesis Wheels - A Reboot - Oct. 1, 2018, 2:01 p.m.

Totally agree with you Dan, the wheels are very expensive but it represents top, top shelf quality.  

I've had a chance to ride these wheels - and they rip!  What I like most about the wheelset is how they feel under load when pedaling hard and fast over the rough stuff.  It feels very fast and seems to maintain speed even over roots/rocks/bumps.  

The hub choice crank brothers picked is great - the P321 hubs are fancy, and the quiet 2.5 degree engagement makes it that much easier to get over roots on climbs.
