"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."
"I'm told (by the people downstairs) that less vibration gets through to them, and the general noise experience of using the turbo (here, a Tacx Satori) is less. So it works in that respect and it keeps sweat from damaging the carpet. However it is expensive, and difficult to roll up to store after the session is over."
"It's a simple idea that does the job. One side tells you when your chain is near the end of its life and the other tells you when it has reached the end of its life. It takes the guesswork out of when to change the chain."
