The number 1 bottle cage in the pro peloton, a true design classic which is also self-adjusting. These cages were used by over half the starting riders in the Tour De France, including Mark Cavendish, Thor Hushovd, Bradley Wiggins and Cadel Evans.
"Been using this for a couple of months now. It's a nice simple design that firmly holds your water bottle in place over rough roads. When you need a drink it's also easy to remove the bottle, so not too secure. I'd buy it again if I needed another."
"I've used this product for a month now. Compared to a Tacx Satori and an old Ergo Basic it's quiet. My other flat mates don't notice me using it now, where as before the screeching from the tyres would drive them crazy. When in use the Turbo Muin makes a whooshing fan-like sound, it's not silent but the only other noise will be your chain and your heavy breathing.
I'm currently using it with a 12-23 cassette and 50-34 chain set with power meter. I prefer riding at around 90/95rpm so have not really had the need to use the large chainring. It is a bit like riding a Tacx Satori on resistance 7, only much smoother.
If you want to cut down on the noise then this turbo is for you. It I believe is the quietest available. However if noise is not a problem for you then I'd recommend saving your money and going for a Satori, Super Magnito, or a KK Rock and Roll."
Pros: Durable, Attractive, High Quality
Cons: Expensive, Bulky

BBB BTL-18S Tools and Tube Storage Bottle (Small)
This storage water bottle, with screw on lid, is ideal to organise your inner tube, tools, Co2 inflator etc and fits neatly into your water bottle cage.
"Having broken my micro saddlebag I decided to give this a go. I'm pleased with it. I can fit two road inner tubes, a chain tool, a tyre boot, a chain link and two tyre levers. It will be a bit of a squeeze to get anything else in there. It's also robust. Mine came flying out at speed and remained intact. I'll probably switch back to the saddle bag in summer but only because I will need the bottle holder!"
"I managed over 10,000Km on the last one (700x25c). These give a slightly nicer ride than the previous version (Kevlar Guard). They have great grip in all conditions, even in the wet. No punctures so far, I had 4 or 5 with the last set, so I'm interested to see how they compare. The reflective sidewalls are a great feature too. If you want something lighter go for the Duranos, but for training, club runs, commuting, and audaxes I'm happy with using Marathons!"
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Rugged
dhb’s Navo baggy short is the perfect alternative to lycra for those daily commutes. Offering a combination of comfort, low key styling and durability. Reflective detailing helps make sure you are seen.
"I have owned 10 Speed Ultegra and Dura Ace shifters. These don't look as nice but they perform just as well. If you are not bothered by the slightly heavier weight, then buy these."
Pros: Great Value

Open Pave Evo CG Clincher Tyre
Especially for those who cycle all year round, in every kind of road and weather conditions, including pavé and heavy rain, Vittoria decided to improve one of its most traditional models, the "CG", and raise it to the EVO level.
"I would imagine these being great for Flanders and Roubaix thanks to the grip, comfort and confidence they give on tricky road surfaces. But if you are going to use them for more than a couple of times a week then you will need to replace them within a few months as they are not that durable. So great for special occasions, not for everyday use."

Ladies Transit Short Sleeve Jersey - 2011
The Transit jersey is a discrete, casual fitting jersey with classic lines and the kind of technical fabrics you’ll find throughout the new Spring Summer dhb collection.
"I'm regretting the decision to buy these. Wished I'd gone for Torq. If you're doing a TT or a hard sportive the last thing you want to consume is something that tastes like medicine. They taste awful ("blackcurrent" flavour).
On a positive note the BBE on this batch is not for another two years... should be enough time to get use to them!"
Cons: Expensive, horrible taste

Roubaix Knee Warmers
Fashionable, soft, comfortable, warm. Combine kneeRubi knee warmers with ASSOS bibshorts to transform them into a 3/4 length bibknicker equivalent. kneeRubi are perfect to wear during cool spring and early autumn, or at the beginning of a ride.
Assos Chamois Creme
ASSOS Chamois Crème makes long rides more enjoyable and comfortable, by reducing friction and preventing bacterial and fungal infections on your skin. Apply a thin layer of Chamois Crème to your skin and padded insert before you ride.
"These shorts are probably the most comfortable that I have owned. They are expensive but you're paying for quality, r&d and after sales services (if required). I haven't tried the cream yet but the knee warmers are long enough to keep the thighs warm, which is a good thing as there is less chance of them falling down."
