It has been my experience that when buying anything for your bike, except maybe tubes, it is always better to get the brand you don't have reason to question, even with the higher price point. This...

I've been guilty of chastising a fellow cyclist for riding the wrong way in the bike lane. Other than that, however, I try to keep my opinions to myself.
