Yeah, if the strap isn't configured the right way, it can be uncomfortable. The idea is for the weight to rest on your hips, so the band should be tight on the sides, but not on the front (stomach) if that makes sense. We're seeing the belts themselves getting wider and more contoured, which helps…
Interesting. I stopped wearing backpacks 4 or 5 years ago and won't go back. I find them much more comfortable than a backpack, especially when it's hot. With the return of the water bottle cage to FS bikes, and all the stash tools, bikepacking bags, etc. it's easy to get away with a small hip…

Sidewall tears are tough.
Yeah, I'm not sure why FiveTen chose to make this style of shoe. I re-read Chris Daniels' review of the Hellcats from last year, and while he wasn't quite so harsh in his assessment, his review was pretty lukewarm. That being said, I'm sure there are some (not many) riders who are into this style…

C'mon, sometimes you have to eat your vegetables. It can't all be Cake. (Gary Fisher sold a mountain bike called the Cake, get it?)
