First Ride: Trek's New Supercaliber XC Race Bike
I'm thinking this could be a really great bike for Leadville. There is always a lot of debate for Leadville whether to ride a hardtail or a full suspension with even the pros split (this year the top two finishers used the new Specialized HT but many of the other pros were on full suspension including the Team EF guys). I road an Air 9 RDO at Leadville this year that weighed in at about 20.5 lbs. This Supercaliber would be close but likely still a couple of pounds heavier. The question would be how much performance would be gained over the course of with reduced fatigue on a FS and likely a little more speed on the descents vs the added weight on the climbs....

Oakley EVZero Range Prizm Trail - Review
I ridden and skied with a wide variety of glasses and lenses. Generally I've been really impressed with the Prizm technology but the Prizm Trails are not my favorite. Riding under a tree canopy I find them too dark. I much prefer Oakley's photochromic lens, which is also available in an EVZero frame (http://www.oakley.com/en/product/W0OO9327PHT?cm_mmc=google-semsearch-_-G-DSA-_-DSA-_-DSA&gclid=CMCR-63vxNECFeNsMgodqQIMAw&gclsrc=ds) The Prizm Road is a great lens for road biking or when out in the open on a mountain bike without tree cover. If I'm mountain biking where there isn't dense tree cover, then the Prizm Trail is still quite good. For everyday sunglasses, I bought the Carbon Shift with the Prizm Daily lens, which is great at the beach, driving, and pretty much everything else. As far as the EVZero frame, I love it for biking. Superlight and essentially unnoticeable on your face but stil has very good coverage. Doesn't fog. Main downside is that you can't change lenses like some other Oakley cycling frames. The recently came out with a Prizm Snow lens for the EVZero. I suspect this would be a great spring skiing sunglass when you want to ditch the goggles for glasses.
