A rugged, wheeled hard case for safely transporting your bike on flights and extended tours. The B&W bike box features a tough ABS shell, padded wheel bags and an aluminium frame for robust protection wherever you travel.

"This box is poorly made. I had one and it only withstood two trips before starting to fall apart. The box flexed and bottomed out in the middle wearing the middle hinge which after the two trips was not far off falling off. Its not cheap if you're only going to get two trips out of it.
Also, its difficult to wheel as the weight is distributed in the middle and only just fit my 51cm frame in when I removed the seat post, handlebars, rear mech.
However, Wiggle were good and refunded the money.
"
Cons: Low Quality, Wears Out Easily, Poor Fit

Keep your feet warm without the hassle of a full shoecover. Made from super-durable neoprene, Castelli toecovers slip easily over the front of your shoe and are held in place by the cleats.

"These are spot on and make a noticeable difference especially in the spring. Feet dont get sweaty.
Just a little expensive for a small amount of neoprene but they do do the job and it would be difficult to make them yourself so cant really complain!

"These tabs are fine but for what they really are they are very expensive. I just use the pouches of electrolytes with a bit of squash to make exactly the same thing or add electrolytes to a carb or recovery drink. Google My protein and you'll see what I mean!
Also, compare to a pouch of electrolytes the packaging is excessive.
If you dont use these quickly they go sticky and dont dissolve properly!

"This chain cleaner does the job it was intended for.
Don't expect to be able to clean your chain indoors though. You'll get loads of drip off your chain. But thats no fault of the product.
On my training bike I just use paraffin for the first two rinses and then make up a bucket of washing up liquid water and use that to get rid of the solvent and rest of the grime. I'll probably spend some money for a proper cleaner for race bike in the summer.
Bought another one when I was away for a while and would buy another of this one breaks but Im sure it wont for years anyway."
Pros: Durable, Great Value, High Quality

"These cutters are heavy duty and feel like they will stand the test of time. I really dont like the rubbish quality of tools now-a-days so forking out for these wasn't much of a problem.
More expensive than other cutters but thats the story with all Park Tools. However, loads of pro teams use their products and thats good enough recommendation for me!
Crimps the cable end caps as well."

"I use this loads after cleaning and as a preventative measure as it leaves a protective film. Its also good for cleaning up components as it leaves things shiney once wiped off. Also, good as it will lubricate all those moving parts in Derailleurs etc.
Generally a better replacement for WD40 in my opinion."

"Having owned the short sleeved version for a while and having been impressed with the performance I wanted a base layer with long sleeves.
This base layer is just as good as the short sleeved version.
Stops the wind (you can really tell the difference), comfortable, looks good. - Only problem is that its a bit expensive but I think its worth it."

"These are probably the best value for money overshoe. Look good do keep your feet warm up to a certain extent. At the same time, can let your feet over heat and get itchy. Still recommended though."

"Had this for 6months and about 4500miles now. Its been pretty good. When it is absoluty torretial it can cut out but is fine after. It even went through the washing machine and is still OK. Had to take a wire brush to the magnet recently to sort out some funny / non readings. Cant see cadence and time of session at the same time though. All in all - good product though."
Pros: Attractive, Durable, Good Fit, Rugged

Whats the nutritional breakdown per 100mls when made up as directed?

Per 100ml as made up 1 tab per 500ml
carb - 0.4g
fat - 0g
fiber - 0g
sodium - 0.05g
magnesium - 12mg

You would be better off buying electrolyte powder!
