"It's not going to light your way home on unlit country roads, but it will make sure you're seen anywhere you might go. In summary, a really outstanding commuter light."
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, High Quality, Lightweight

"The latest incarnation of Cateye's most popular rear light. This five LED light is updated every few years and the new version is good enough to make it worth considering an upgrade: the latest ultra-bright LEDs, new display patterns and longer battery life all make this a very attractive item. A favourite of commuters, this version might also tempt occasional and more "serious" riders."
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, High Quality, Adjustable, Lightweight

"This is undoubtedly the best commuting jacket there is. Good (slightly large to go over work clothes) fit, high visibility and plenty of reflective strips; medium thickness (not lightweight). Only criticism: huge collar, although this can be tighetened up with an internal cord."
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, High Quality, Good Fit

"I am a tall person and ordered the 'large' size. It's a high quality product, and I liked it a lot. The problem: it's just too long! Untucked, it stuck out about 3 inches underneath my jersey. Tucked it it just looked silly. If Castrelli made this item 3 inches shorted, I wouldn't hesitate to buy it!"
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, Lightweight
Cons: Poor Fit

Elite performance and quality for endurance road riding in summer conditions. The SS.Mile Jersey has a more relaxed cut than standard Assos Jerseys, perfect for larger builds and those who prefer a more generous fit.

"With room for a multi-tool, wallet, phone and keys, this is probably the smallest saddle bag in Ortlieb's range that I'd recommend. It rolls up just like their panniers to keep contents dry."
Pros: High Quality, Lightweight, Good Fit
Cons: Expensive, Unadjustable

The EL-500 was the brightest normal battery front LED by a mile, but harnessing the very latest LED technology, Cateye's new EL-530 surpasses this by 50% with no price increase!!!

"Although this item has a limited life of about 2-3 years when used regularly (the parts just wear out), this is still the best commercially-available chain cleaner. Very easy to use and does a great job."

Current have 700x26c tyres should I swap to 700x25 or 700x28?

Thinking of buying these tyres but not sure which size to purchase because the ones I current run are in between. Current tyres are 700x26c so i'm not sure whether i should buy the 700x25 or 700x28 ones!
Personally, I can't tell the difference between 700x28 and 700x25. 700x25 seems to be the more "standard" size and will give you a marginally speedier ride.

How Often?

Ok so i'm buying this product to clean my road bike chain how often should i clean the chain i commute around 40miles per week.
You should clean the chain when it gets dirty. It sounds like you'd probably get away with every other week.

what accessories do you get

Hello,

Could you please tell me if the bib shorts come in the proper 'Assos' box, together with the pouch to wash them in?

Thanks!
Yes, they do.
