" Slim fitting but a Medium fitted my 38" chest perfectly. Ideal for cooler summer days and as a base layer under a windproof.
Could do with a bit more reflective surfaces 'just in case'.

Pros: Great Value, Comfortable, Lightweight, Versatile, Good Fit

" I don't use for long rides but for my 1hr training sessions these are just the job.
Not used for that long so can't say if they wear well or not. OK so far after a month.
Close fitting (Medium is (for me with a 33in waist), a tad on small side and tight on the thighs) but are still comfortable.
Seat pad, as has been said in other reviews, does feel as though it doesn't enough coverage on the bones but seems to fit about right in practice.
Good value for money and I'd certainly consider another pair.

The Topeak Aero Wedge provides convenient under the saddle storage in a durable, sleek and aero-constructed design. Carry your riding essentials like spare tools, tubes, snacks, cash, keys, a mini pump, and anything else with confidence.
 

will this fit a road bike or a time trial bike with an aero dynamic seat post like on the GIANT TCR COMPOSITE 3?

Don't know the dimensions of those but I have a standard seat tube and there's quite a bit of slack ion the strap that fits round that so should be OK. Straps that sling from the saddle frame are pretty long as well.

Mudguard mounting

hi can this be bolted to the mudguard?
thanks
Top 250 Contributor

Don't think it has a suitable mount for that and it's quite heavy so would probably bounce if you did try it. Seems more suited to being mounted on something solid such as seat tube or seat stay.

What British size is the medium

Top 250 Contributor
Top 250 Contributor
They'd fit a size 8. I ordered a Small based on another review and they're a little too tight for me and the label for those says 5-7. So I'd say a Mediuk is 8 - 9 UK size.

waterproof socks

Are these waterproof cycling socks ok for the summer months? or are they too thick!

Might be a bit warm for summer months, even though they're breathable. Really depends if you suffer from cold feet even on warm days.
