All common systems are covered with this upgrade unit - making it ideal for Shimano, Race Face and others. The machined aluminium cups hold either full stainless steel cartridge bearings, or ceramic bearings in stainless races.

"Just had first outing in pretty ugly weather, first of all I bought a medium and its the perfect fit, 5'9" chest 39/40, very comfy jacket, water just rolls off , also very warm.
That's the good bits, worst bit is the length at the back, all the water just drained onto the bottom of my back, why did Wiggle cut this garment so short, almost not fit for purpose, probably most suitable for running.
If I'd realised just how short it was I would of exchanged for something more suitable.
"
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, Lightweight, Good Fit
Cons: Unadjustable, Limited Color Choices, too short

Light materials and light-effort shifting deliver a heavy advantage. The new Force Derailleur achieves the critical balance between positive downshifts and light-action upshifts.

"Bought this item to replace the Red front mech which has been to put it politely useless, used stronger words than that on the road, it's now well documented that the red is too flexible and not fit for purpose, but had to bite the bullet and replace with the Force, the difference was immediately apparent, really works well.
Won't be buying SRAM again, shimano or campagnola for me in the future.
"
Pros: Great Value
Cons: shouldn't have to replace the original mech

Is really a PC required?

In the description it says: PC required: Yes.
Does it mean you need a PC for operating the trainer? Or is it that with a PC you can get more features (i.e. training exercises, simulations, etc.)?

Thanks
No

Sizing Advice

There is mixed feedback about the sizing of this garment.
I'm 5'9, my waist is 31". Im a slim/medium build.

I have looked at the sizing guide which would put me in a Small... but everyone says buy a size up, should I go for Medium?
I'm 5-9" 33"waist 39/40chest, fits snug, not tight, no flapping, medium, I'd go by your chest size
