Train more effectively with the Garmin premium heart rate monitor strap. When worn around your chest during an activity, it wirelessly transmits your heart rate to your compatible device for instant feedback on how hard you’re working.

"the most comfortable shoes i have ever ridden in bar none.
The foot is so good you don't need to tighten them that much
which aids comfort. The foot bed is good with just enough
support. extra fore/at on the cleat mountings is a brilliant
touch.
The only down side i can see are that the heel pads are not
replaceable.

"I don't like big saddle bags and have been hunting for a bag to suit
me for ages. then I found this. neat enough to suit my "eye" yet big
enough for .. A tube, 2 tyre levers, a co2 cartricartridge, multi tool,
power link, patches, tyre patch and 2 latex gloves. This may sound like it's a big bag but it's not .
All in all very pleased."

my 43 s-works are "snug" in the toe box. went for 44 in these as
shimano are historically small and found them perfect. go up

as long as your saddle had 7mm round rails you'll be fine.
You can get additional clamp kits to suit other rail sizes.

 Exposure Toro Mk6
Exposure Toro Mk6
Enduro power and minimal size make the Toro a winning combination for tearing down the trails. Triple XML output of 1800 lumens controlled by Reflex Technology means it’s capable of putting out the power of last year’s MaXx-D.
 

Will the mounting bracket for the "Exposure Toro Mk6" fit onto my 3T Ergonova handlebars . Thanks .

Actually it will fit .... The first 2" of bar next to the stem mount are
round so you can fit the bracket quite happily .... works fine on my

Product Size (Capacity)

I was wondering if this bag is capable of holding the following items

1 Spare 700cc road tube
3 Tyre Levers
Topeak Alien III multi tool
Couple of spare chain links
Money
Top 100 Contributor
Top 100 Contributor
Not likely to fit given the size of the alien iii. The lezyne micro caddy in small is probably a better bet.
