"Have been using this for a few months, has been pretty fun to get into using. Some of the software is a bit rubbish -'basecamp' for planning routes -i found anyway-...but the garmin connect package is really good. You can upload activity and routes onto your online profile and then share it via e-mail/facebook or whatever....useful for sharing good routes. I found using an on-line route-planning bit of software much better than the 'basecamp' software which was really frustrating. The navigation side of things took some getting used to, and it's easy for it not to work if there are not certain bits turned on/boxes ticked. I don't think you can get the full functionality out of the product straight out of the box, and I should probably sit down and read the instructions... Overall though, I rate it highly!"

"I bought 2 of these for a touring trip to france on the eurostar, The bags worked well, and we carried them with us for the return leg. Got a few tears in them but they were fine for the return, and am keeping them for the next trip. They are light compared to most 'bike bags', but weighed about 750g each, incase you're into sawing the end off your toothbrushes to save a few more g..."

"was a bit apprehensive about going for a single sided road pedal after using time mtb pedals...but other than taking a bit longer to flip the pedal over to clip in at the traffic lights...all OK. seemingly solid build and pretty light!"

sore seams
Posted24 April 2010

"Bought these after reading all the positive reviews, but mine have been pretty uncomfortable with the padding seams causing chafe, and the bib straps being uncomfortable...not sure if that's due to a duff pair. The padding is really comfortable though, however the material is very shiny and makes them look a bit cheap."

Are these SPD pedals?

not really. think spd stands for shimano pedal design, and these are made by look. but these are along the same lines (and i think better). They'll lock to your shoes with the cleat supplied.
