"A good all-rounder jersey for the price.
Clean styling and a good fit—I have a 42" chest and 34" waist and the XL is a good fit.
Would have given it 5 stars if it featured grip tape and a slightly higher collar."
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Attractive, Comfortable, Good Fit

 Pace Padded 3/4 Bib Tight
Pace Padded 3/4 Bib Tight
These Pace Padded 3/4 Bib Tights bridge the seasonal gaps that cycling crosses. The extra coverage means that the sensitive knee joint is protected from the temperature and any added wind chill that may be present.

"Bought for a night ride, they kept my legs warm and reasonably dry despite the constant rain. The bibbed top kept out the draughts.
The 3/4 fit provides more protection than normal shorts whilst still giving you freedom of movement.
Good fit and recommended."
Pros: Great Value, Comfortable, Lightweight, Good Fit
Cons: Unadjustable

"Bought for commuting, it is easy to fit and remove, a sturdy build and waterproof. It easily takes a laptop, lunch box and change of clothes. It has an internal tool organiser, pump sleeve and space for a mobile phone.
Not cheap, but well worth the money.

"I bought this light as a temporary replacement to a set of old Cateye halogen lights that had broken. Though I don't get the flood-light capability of halogen lights, it is more than adequate for riding at night with no other ambient light sources. This is now my main front light."

"This is an affordable, robust, piece of kit that you should have if you're interested in monitoring your riding performance.
Easy to set-up with clear instructions and robust fittings, this budget compact computer does everything you need.
The LCD display is just large enough to allow for an at-a-glance reading, while the computer's overall size is compact enough to have additional lights / fittings alongside.
Go wireless, and go for this computer."
Pros: Adjustable, Attractive, Durable, Great Value, High Quality, Lightweight

Are these good for running?

Would these glasses be good for when running, does anyone wear them for running and can tell me if they are any good and what sort of distance do you do in them, thanks
I've worn these on 10k runs—they're light and a comfortable fit.
Depending on the conditions, they do sometimes steam up, even though they are vented. I have a pair with amber lenses—it cheers up those grey cloudy days!

Size ?

What size should I get 5.8-5.9 ft tall chest 39-40. Thank you
Based on your measurements, I'd go for a large.
I have a 42" chest, 34" waist and the XL fits me like a glove.

How secure is the fixing system?

I have had some panniers in the past that have had very poor fixing systems and have "jumnped" off the rack going over bumps.

What's it like on this model? Thanks
This pannier has two, top spring-loaded fixing clips that stop vertical movement and a bottom fixing arm to stop horizontal movement. All fixings are adjustable. I've used this pannier this week and have had no problems with movement over rough paths and the occasional unavoidable pot-hole.
