    Bottom Line:   
    I absolutely love Salt Stick products. The salt capsules themselves work wonders and the mini dispenser is KEY for my mountain bike bars. The dispenser is not only super easy and convenient to use, but it is also stays put in times when my bike doesn't always stay rubber side down.

    Strengths:    I utilized this product at Ultraman Hawaii and Ironman Western Australia 6 days later in 2008 and they were awesome. It was imperative that I kept my electrolytes in check through these grueling events so I could maintain my racing performance. I must say I would not have completed these 2 races without this product.

    Weaknesses:    none

    Bottom Line:   
    Great product and I will be using it again this year as I compete in Ironman Germany July 5 Ironman Switzerland Jully 12 and Ultraman Canada August 1,2 and 3.

    Strengths:    no effect to the stomach, while delivering all you need. only need one cap at a time.

    Weaknesses:    bit on the large side, but offset by not having to take a hand full.

    Bottom Line:   
    the caps are great. they really keep the problems away. one cap per hour (plus two extra on longer rides) make carrying and planning very easy.

    I have a dispenser on the list to get with the next order. I have not tried the dispenser, although a friend has. he encountered moisture problems with the caps sticking. but knowing him it could be a maintenance issue.

    Strengths:    Easy to carry on the bike using the dispenser that Saltstick designed.
    The stuff actually works, eliminated my cramping issues .


    Weaknesses:    ???

    Bottom Line:   
    Over the years, I've tryed all kinds of things to prevent leg cramps during extremely hard racing efforts. A good friend recomended Saltstick caps. They definetly work for me. When I forget to use them ,it's only a matter of time before the cramping starts. A "must have" for summer time racing, or hard training days..

    Time capsule Attitude

    I picked up this '91 Attitude over the weekend. The original owner was a nice gentleman who bought the bike new (I guess he was in his 40s at the time) and barely rode it. 21 years later and the finish is virtually flawless and the paint as smooth as glass. No chain suck either. There is some minor ... Read More »
