These shoe covers are extremely tough and will keep your foot insulated and your shoes protected from adverse weather. The industrial strength full length zipper won't let you down and the reflective detailing will help you stay visible at night.

"Since using Nuun, and H2Pro I have definitely seen the benefits of keeping carbs (food) and salt (water) separate in the fuelling conundrum.
Less cramps, greater endurance, less after exercise aches. Simples.

"Although a great price, I was disappointed with the feel of the flat side, sometimes actually slipping off the pedal.
I am using these on the front of a tandem, with the thought that occasionally we may do a short local ride to a pub without wearing cleats. Beginning to think that wasn't the best decision - especially as we tend to do long rides on the tandem, though of course that may change on those summer evenings.

Cassette combinations of 12-23, 12-25, 13-26 and 13-29. The sprockets must be shaped appropriately for the drivetrain to work perfectly. The end result is perfect shifting and high precision operation everytime.

ZERO is the new electrolyte drink from High5; it's virtually calorie free (1.4 cal per 100ml) and has a light refreshing taste.
 

Does it contain any artificial sweetners?

 WhiteEye Front Light
WhiteEye Front Light
The White Eye plugs into your Joystick and will double your light output to 480 Lumens on MaXx setting.
 

Where is this designed to clip to? With the orientation of the clip as it is it would sure point out to the side of the bike when attached to the bars

It clips on top of the joystick, piggy backing.

Presumably it halves the battery life of the light it runs off?

As this plugs into the back of another Exposure light with a Smart Port, it must reduce that light's running time? If used with a 240 lumens light, it would halve its life I assume?

Does this light come with a long cable for a bike mounted front light, or a short cable for a helmet mounted joystick? Or both?
