Great CO2 head!

This shiny object works great, it is so easy to regulate the flow and it will hold the leftover CO2 for days. Its small and light. You can't ask for anything more.

The simplest, no fail, CO2 inflater I've used.

I have a Lezyne and Innovations valve inflators, but have replaced both with the PDW inflator. The PDW is the easiest, quickest, and fail-safe nozzle compared to the other 2. I inflate in 2 steps. At step 1, my PDW allows me to have very slow, controlled release (twist the valve knob) to minimally inflate the inner tube, but with enough air control to see the tire is properly seeded inside, around the rim. My Lezyne and Innovations is simple push, but each push comes in full bursts. I found these bursts are more difficult to control in my step 1. Step 2 is my more robust, but still controlled, release to reach my desired PSI. There are certainly experts using Lezyne and Innovations, but I'm not one of them. I don't flat that often. But, when I do, the PDW has ridden me of all my previous fumbling and frustrations I had with the other 2 brands.

Serviceable fender with issues, but I'm a repeat buyer.

I bought the Origami front and back fenders, as a temporary stopgap until I got some full fenders powder-coated blue. I never did the powder-coating, because I'm basically lazy when it comes to errands, and it just never happened. However, these fenders lasted all winter, and while the back fender works really well, the front does have an issue. When I go fast in the rain (and in Portland, it rains a lot), the water coming off the front tire would spray out in front of me, and I'd run into it. It really needs a front-of-the-head-tube piece, to catch that. All that being said, I'm headed to Western Bikeworks today to replace this one, since I lost the one I had. I just really like how light it is, and since summer is coming, I'm only going to need it to look good, which it does.

Quality full protection fender

Installed on Specialized Roubaix matte black color. Installed easy. Fenders are matte black looking at bike hard to tell if bike has fenders. Fenders are very sleek. Front fender is mounted using a Sheldon Brown fender nut and stay. Rear fender is mounted using stay and plastic bracket attached to set tube. Front fender protects bottom bracket area. Rear fender protects bottom bracket, seat tube area. Both fenders protect me.
