If you're considering buying a smart trainer to beat the heat, the Elite Suito might be the one to get. It comes in at a great price point (relatively speaking for a bike trainer) has all the usual features and even comes with a cassette and riser. At $799.00 this trainer is a particularly good buy if you're looking to save space as it folds up very compactly. 

DesFit gives his first impressions below.

If you see a guy bombing around on an orange RKT talking to himself, that's probably DesFit working on his next gear review, think nothing of it. His latest review of the 2018 Niner RKT 9 is phenomenal. His ability to narrate white riding is impressive.  He also does a great job of showcasing/discussing many of our favorite trails; Max, Shoreline, Res Ridge, Timber, Kimmons, the Valley trails. It's fun to watch his line selection. I bet you a shinny nickel that you'll want to go for an mtb ride after watching it.

Alright, I'm excited about this one, DesFit reviews the Feedback Sports Team Edition tool kit. For a couple hundred bucks you'll have just about everything you need to build and maintain your bikes and its all in one convenient carrying case, with high quality tools. As you're watching the review, take note of Desfit's evolution in product review.  It's pretty amazing how far Desmond has come in about two years. Stoked to see he's accrued 12k subscribers. 

This particular toolkit will live the rest of it's life in the back of the YGR Car. If you need anything at any races or as you're out riding feel free to swing by or flag me down. We'll get you fixed up.
