  1. Anyone ever bought gear through DigitalRev in the US?

    So, I've decided to pop for another X-T1 body as well as the 50-140 lens. I'm now on the fence as to whether or not I want to also spring for the 10-24 or the 56mm/1.4.

    Decisions, decisions.

    This was a heavier load than I usually tote. My lightest for a three day ride with food minus water is typically around 12-16 pounds. Not counting the camer kit I tend to bring along.

    I'm of the opinion there is not a nanometer of compliance in the Salsa Firestarter carbon fork. But, I also don't think that is a bad thing. There is however, more than enough plushness in the wheel...

    I truly try to evaluate any product as objectively as possible, and when my few funky personal biases enter the equation, I try to disclose those influencers as well.

    Dalko, read the Bear Aware article I wrote for the home page. It specifically explains why bear spray is relatively ineffective on humans, but utterly debilitating to a bear.

    What makes the Exped Mega Mat so comfy is in my opinion, two fold. Firstly, it has those lovely lateral corrugations that give the mat a little texture like a home mattress. But, it is the vertical...
