"I've tried many different chamois creams over the years with mixed results. I didn't realise that Muc Off made one so decided to give it a go and I'm very impressed. Good consistency means it lasts for even longer rides and as I've had no reaction to it I guess it's good for sensitive skin types. As you don't need to use a lot the tub will last many months!"
"Apart from a brief experiment with Kask, I have worn Giro helmets the entirety of my adult cycling life. Feeling my rather expensive Synthe was a bit over the top for commute and shopping rides I bought the white Savant at a good price from Wiggle. It features the same Roc Loc 5 fitting system as the Synthe and is equally as comfortable. To my mind it looks the part and is a welcome addition to my cycling wardrobe. If you wanted to nit pick by comparing it to a helmet costing £150 more you could possibly say the straps weren't as soft...but only if you really wanted to find something 'wrong'."
Pros: Adjustable, Attractive, Comfortable, Good Fit, Great Value, High Quality
"The original dhb skull cap I purchased last year was consigned to the waste bin after one ride. It was a good fit, perfectly warm enough but had one massive flaw. The perforations in the material that covered the ears generated so much wind noise I couldn't hear my ride partner beside me, let alone the traffic. The irony was the perforations were supposed to enhance hearing. Delighted to see the 2017 offering has done away with that feature so now I can keep my bald head snug and not be deafened by wind noise at anything over walking pace."
"Personally I feel the cold and will be wrapped in winter gear while my contemporary's are still sweating buckets in summer kit. Needing a pair of 'intermediate' gloves (something between mitts and full winter jobs) I opted for dhb as I've found the quality and price to be unbeatable. These gloves are no exception being comfortable, well made and offering my lizard like body temperature regulating system a fighting chance as the mercury drops to single figures."
Pros: Comfortable, Good Fit, Great Value, High Quality
"The ability to adjust the length of this LifeLine out front Garmin mount is its stand out feature so if you have a 20 or 1000 it will extend or retract to accommodate it. The head unit 'snaps' into place with a far more definitive click than the Garmin originals giving peace of mind on bumpy roads or trails. Not the lightest mount you can buy but the solid construction and excellent price tag more than negate the few extra grams."
Pros: Adjustable, Good Fit, Great Value
Cons: too heavy for weight worriers

"The single time I experienced breaking a chain on a ride was when it had been joined using the pin provided by Shimano and I'm not alone in that respect. So I always use a quick link and KMC's product works very well indeed. I use versions to cover all chain widths from 7 to 11 speed and they've never let me down. Reusing is advised against but I've done so several times with no issues although I do swap them after two joinings on 11 speed."
Pros: Durable, Good Fit, Great Value, High Quality
"The on thing my Number One bike lacked was really good pedals, not that Shimano R550's are a bad pedal, they just seemed out of place on a carbon everything bike. These Ultegra's are really an extravagant purchase, bike bling at its best but if you're looking for more legitimate reasons to buy them, they're light and have beautifully smooth bearings. In all honesty I don't notice any difference clipping in or out compared to R550's but they look great and are definitely the finishing touch to my bike."
"Purchased for an adventure bike I was gifted with cable disc brakes. Unwilling to spend a lot on cables in case I didn't like the bike these ticked the box and have improved the performance of the brakes over what it was originally supplied with. Just ordered a second set for a winter road bike!"
