"Works great in cool or warm weather. Have two and love them. Durable and survived many washes. Perfect under a thermal top in the winter and under a short sleeve in the summer. Long enough to cover you without bunching in your shorts."
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Fit, High Quality, Lightweight

"Bought for the cold weather and also to make me visible when cycling in the dark. Almost hit a few times on roundabouts and was sure it was related to failure to see me signalling. With these things have improved and also improved my visibility to others from head on. Slightly garish but safer so happy to lose the cool points. Been warm down to just above freezing and shrugged off rain. Cuffs not ideal if your jacket goes inside as would act as a conduit for water to ingress. However when in normal showers not proving an issue and if your cuffs fit snugly over the top not an issue at all. Not a massive fan of torrential downpours so plan to just avoid them!"
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Fit, Great Value

"Obvious oakley quality, weigh nothing but really big. I expect my wife to giggle at various cycling elements, especially bike helmets, but she thought these looked hilarious. Undoubtedly give great coverage and crystal sharp lenses but just too big a lens for me and garishly coloured so pretty obvious."

Cons: wear out eventually

Size for a 40 in waist but 6' chap

Dad has taken up cycling to get fit. Takes 40 in waist for trousers but Lycra a bit forgiving and he's only 6 foot tall. Also recovering from a hip replacement so no chunky legs to deal with. Worried the biggest size for a 40 inch waist would be too loose elsewhere. Any advice please?

Sizing

I am keen on getting a highly visible running top and this looks ideal. I vary between a L and an XL depending on companies. Arm length is often an issue - 6'2" with a 42" chest. Does this item come up big or small and if small any chance of stocking the XL visipro in the future?

 Tacx Tao Ultralight Bottle Cage (Silver)
Tacx Tao Ultralight Bottle Cage (Silver)
Analysis, inspiration and innovation are the key words behind the development of the Tao, the Tacx superlight streamlined bottle cage. The shape of the bike and its technical components inspired the designers.
 

Bottle scratching?

One reviewer mentioned that these cages scratch up your bottles. I would like to know if anyone else has had a similar experience, or have found them okay?
Not experienced that myself. Very happy with mine.

The Zoggs Predator Flex Goggle features 4 Flexpoint Technology™, delivering increased flexibility in the frame for maximum comfort and precision of fit. This goggle also features integrated UV and fogging protection.
 

Which lens colour should I have?

I am looking to buy a pair of these goggles but are not sure which ones would suit which conditions. I.e blue lens for pool e.t.c. Could you please explain?
Blue lens works fine for me in pool and outdoors. Mirrored too bling for me. I'd go on personal aesthetics rather than worrying about optimal tint. Not a massive issue with goggles and on a bright sunny day I've never found a pair of goggles that cut out all the glare anyway.
