"My carbon wheels with cassette fitted were too much of a load for this bag. Happily my winter ones did, just, and were fine with tyres removed. Ideal safe wheel storage through the summer with plenty of pocket room for accessories. Good value cokmpared with price of other double wheel bags. Well made"

Minimalist piece for warm weather usage. Fully open mesh holds the jersey off of skin and the resulting layer of air works to regulate body temperature. Coupled with very little moisture absorbing, this base layer stays cool and light. Sleeveless version

Warm breathable Knee warmers with Castelli's advanced Nano silicone treatment for fantastic water resistance. NanoFlex fabric behaves just like Thermoflex fabric in dry conditions, but provides unbelievable water repellency when it starts to rain.

"Was a little worried when these arrived as they were definitely tighter thasn the Castelli bib tights I have. Just done 57 miles in them, their first outing and all fears have disappeared. Supportive, flexible all over comfortable and the Progetto X2 pad is the best I've used.
For me Castelli is the bike clothing choice, tried other makes but for me this is the one.
Usual Castelli sizing, if normal M get L."

Sizing

Just wondering how the sizing compares to Castelli jerseys? I normally take a L in Castelli jerseys, so I assume I would also need a L with this baselayer?

Thanks.

Yes. I'm the same as L fitted snuggly.

Does the console give a mph speed reading as well as kmph and how easy is it to set mph as the unit default setting?

Being English and consequently used to mph for speed calibration I require a trainer console that has a mph speed reading. If the console default is kmph I want to be able to permanently change the default console speed measurement to mph. Is this possible on the Qubo Wireless Digital trainer.

Do you need special tyres

Hi,
Have seen that similar TACX trainers recommend using their 'blue' tyres. Is there a similar requirement for the Elite?
Or should I just use standard tyres?
Assuming that any 'slick' will reduce noise?
Thanks

I recommend any tyre specifically designed for turbo trainer use. Have used it with road tyres but only to video myself at slow speed for bike fit purposes.
