"These levers are a very high quality lever, not like the bendy cheap plastic levers that snap when you get a tricky tyre. Unless you get a truly horrible tyre you will only need 1 or two. I always keep a set in my jersey pocket.
The patches work well and save mucking around with glue, why spend more time at the side of the road than you need to?"
Pros: Durable, Great Value, High Quality, Rugged

This handy bike handlebar mount allows you to place either your Garmin Edge 200, 500, 510, 800 or 810 infront of your bars. This puts the Edge in a position optimised for easier viewing and increased safety.

"The garmin out front is lighter and cheaper than the k edge mount and won't mess up the bottom of your Garmin.
Does the job nicely and is safer than having to take your eyes off the road to look at it when in a bunch.
Despite what others may say who favour the K edge, this is very secure and has never budget a millimetre since fitting it earlier this year."
Pros: Durable, Great Value, Attractive, High Quality, Lightweight, Good Fit
Cons: Limited Color Choices

"These Bars are nice and light and a great price, perhaps not as wide as some would like as the current trend seems to be about having massively wide bars but for those who like this width they're great."

Paul8v's Questions
 
Ideal for spring/summer training and sportives, the Force short sleeve jersey features the traditional 3 rear pockets for energy gels and a shell jacket or vest, all with that distinctive Northwave look.
 

Does the yellow/lime colour match the colour of the Northwave fighter shoes?

How long might a tub last?

I'm planning a 1400mile ride around the coast of Scotland doing 60/70 miles a day for 4-5 weeks, (at least one day "off" per week.) Might 1 tub last?

cheers, LG.
I would have thought so, unless you put lods and loads on
