"This lube does exactly what it says on the label. It's clear and forms a great protective barrier on the chain."

These grips feature a clever locking mechanism, the aluminum clamps don’t directly clamp onto the carbon bars and elastomeric polyurethane is used in place of Kraton for increased comfort and durability.

"Brought these grips to replace the ones that came with my Commencal. The original grips has sustained some damage after a crash. These were the easiest grips I have ever fitted with an Allen Key fit, and then it's done. I went for the slightly larger grip which are great and comfy. So far these are a hit. The bright green sets the bike off great."
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, Adjustable, Good Fit

Often overlooked, the value of a good set of grips should not be underestimated. It is one of the three points of contact between you and your bike. A good set of grips will offer you more control while riding and lessen hand fatigue.

Does the viper mens hydration pack include a bladder?

In the product information it says 2L bladder included but later on in the product details it says that there is no bladder included
Mine came with a bladder.

Analysis, inspiration and innovation are the key words behind the development of the Tao, the Tacx superlight streamlined bottle cage. The shape of the bike and its technical components inspired the designers.
 

What about mounting screws?

Are they included in the package too, or do I need to buy it separately?
yep screws in the package.
