"Decent looking jacket, sizing OK - a little generous if anything. Fine for keeping out the wind on a really cold day but an absolute sweat machine at any other time. Wore on cold morning (about 5c) but had to take off due to overheating. Packs small and good value but proceed with caution."
Pros: Great Value, Lightweight
Cons: not breathable

"Not feeling quite wealthy enough for a pair of Castellis and having a high regard for dhb clothing I gave these a try. Sizing seems reliable, they look good and the roubaix lining is much more snug than plain Lycra. Recommended."

The number 1 bottle cage in the pro peloton, a true design classic which is also self-adjusting. These cages were used by over half the starting riders in the Tour De France, including Mark Cavendish, Thor Hushovd, Bradley Wiggins and Cadel Evans.

"Typical DHB, far better than the price tag suggests it should be. Came up a bit larger than the guide suggested (I'm size 9, went 44 but could probably have gone 43) but overall excellent. Look solid, not too heavy - a great buy."

The VDO M1 is the entry-level model in the VDO M-series and has a compact, linear design and flat structure. The brilliant, portrait-format display uses large letters and a specially developed font to show only one function, making it easy to read.

Is it breathable?

Top 1000 Contributor

No, not even close! Good for the money but likely to make you sweat if zipped up.

A mid-level, baggy, performance short for trail and cross country riding or for the commuter who is looking for an alternative to Lycra cycling shorts. The dhb Morro Short is fitted with a removable padded liner short for added comfort in the saddle.
 

I am 5'10" 11 stone with 32 inch waist which size would you recommend

Top 1000 Contributor

Would say medium. I have a 30" waist and went small - they are reasonably generous.

Yes all pedals come in pairs.
As they thread in opposite directions it would be very confusing to sell or buy singularly.
