"I bought this for a friend because I have the same one, purchased a few years ago. This new improved one makes me jealous! Much easier attaching to valves, pressure gauge at top instead of bottom, easier to read. Same great value & quality. I felt like palming him off with my old one & having this for myself!"
Pros: Great Value, Attractive, High Quality, Rugged

"simple but brilliant idea, helps to minimize windchill on the toes, less of a faff than a full booty. keeps out a respectable amount of rain, but if it looks like it's going to be wet I wear my sealskin socks anyway. great value & fit over the chunky tread on my shimano spd touring shoes."
Pros: Great Value, Comfortable, High Quality, Rugged, Lightweight, Good 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.

"you don't feel like you're wearing it, but it helps you feel very comfortable. Slightly tricky to take off, best to try to grab the hem & drag it over your head."

Fast recovery is vital to reaching and maintaining a high level of fitness. The body recovers at the greatest rate during a two hour window immediately after exercise but only if you provide it with the vital nutrients it needs.

"Used it after gym sessions & 30-40 mile rides, can really feel the difference next day, a lot less stiffness & aches in the muscles. Fruit flavour mixed with water tastes nice, 2 scoops in a full bottle seems to dissolve better than the recommended 3. I make it up pre-workout so it's had time to fully dissolve, saves standing around shaking the bottle in the changing rooms!"

"loads of adjustability to get the fit just right, plenty of ventilation to keep you cool, light weight & feels very unobtrusive. Absolute bargain in the sale, loads of helmet for the price! Even get a nice carry bag to keep it from getting bashed about. Been using a MTB specific helmet on the road & didn't realize the difference a proper road helmet would make!"
Pros: Great Value, Comfortable, High Quality, Adjustable, Lightweight, Good Fit, carry bag included

"lovely bit of kit for the price, you can feel the quality in it. Wraps up really small & fits in the provided sack very nicely. Thumb loops on the end of the sleeves a nice touch. Kept me dry in some foggy Cornwall drizzle & warm when the wind came along. Does get a bit moist inside, but I have yet to find a waterproof that doesn't. I'm 6' tall 85kgs & the XL fits my longish arms well & will fit over some pretty bulky jumpers as well."

large or extra large?

I am 6 foot tall with a 33 inch inside leg, would the large be ok for me or should I go for the extra large?
The sizing chart tells you the dimensions of the bike but not the size of person it would fit.
