"I first came across this at a Sportif. I'm glad I did. It tastes great. On long rides, I get fed up with too many sweet things. This tastes like slightly diluted orange juice and is easy to drink and digest. This is my second box and I'd certainly recommend it"
"This is a truly excellent rear light. It is very bright and even more visible, so to speak, in flashing mode. This is the second one I've bought, The first - bought from a shop - had a slightly dodgy swithch. But I think I was just unlucky, which is why I bought a replacement. It's difficult to get excited about rear lights, but I've tried a few and this is the best one I've found"
"This is my first high-powered light (rather than a cheaper city light), so cannot compare with similar products. However, I am delighted with my purchase. It's the usual Lezyne high quality, is very robust, and doesn't look horribly out of place on either my road bike or single speed (a shallow but important consideration!). The brightest setting is very bright and the other two constant ones are also good. The flashing setting is excellent. So - it cost quite a bit (even with the Wiggle discount), but works very well and looks like it will last.
My only quiblle is the mount. It is tool free, but tightening it properly by hand is a bit fiddly. I'd prefer the option of using a tool. But - you only have to do it occasionally, so not a huge problem."
Pros: Durable, Attractive, Rugged, High Quality, Versatile
"This is a high quality roof carrier. The arm and mechanism make it much easier to load on the roof of a car, as the bke is stable as you tighten the clamp at roof level. It's also lockable (both the clamp and to the roof bars) which is great. The only downsides are: 1) it is set up for a left hand drive car, so if you want the bike on the passenger side, you need to move the mechanism - I haven't risked this, so the bike sits over the driver; 2) the nature of the clamp means that where bikes have cables that run under the downtube, they get compressed against the frame. The solution to this is to put the gears on the most slack setting (small ring, highest rear gear) and fit a small piece of pipe lagging between frame and cables while carrying the bike. This preevents any cable rub or cable stretch.
"I bought a tube of these as they'd featured in a recent sportif. What attracted me was their portability - carrying around a tub and scoop can be a real faff. The drink tastes pretty good and I'll certainly take them on long rides when I need to top up my bottles.
I prefer the taste of Torq drinks, but these are a great compromise between taste and ease of use."
The Continental Grand Prix series of racing clinchers is the top choice of serious race bike specialists all over the world, and has been for many years. The latest incarnation is the Grand Prix 4000S.
TORQ bar has been painstakingly formulated to produce a food that is ultra high in carbohydrate, very low in fat and with ingredients wide-ranging in glycaemic index for immediate and sustained glucose release.
"On long rides I often get hungry and after using gels cannot face anything sweet. These bars are excellent - they taste good, are not too sweet and are easy to digest while riding. I went for the Rasberry ones and am delighted"
TORQ energy has been painstakingly formulated so that it delivers a unique blend of carbohydrate and electrolytes to the working muscles through a drink that is lightly flavoured, refreshing and most importantly natural.
"After trying several energy drinks to use while riding, I've found that Torq works best for me. I like the taste of this one (Lemon & Lime), and it seems to have done the trick of helping with the cramp that I used to experience on longer rides.
I would recommend it, though of course, taste is a very personal thing"

"I've tried the bottle method (one drop per link) and that works well, but I wanted to get something that lubed the cassette a bit better. This seems to do the job pretty well. So , for now, I'll use the spray"
