"Got this to replace my Tiagra derailleur which after many years of faithful service had given up the ghost. Not much more for the 105 from Wiggle so took the opportunity to upgrade. Excellent shifter, quality Shimano product that is easy to install and no problems so far. Hopefully it will last as long as my last one!"
Pros: Great Value, High Quality

"Bought this for the daily commute on my CX bike. They are quite heavy but in this case that means robust, no punctures so far although that might be the kiss of death. Once up to speed they roll fine, you wouldn't expect a zippy race tyre, that is not their job. As a bonus they have a reflective line around the rim, handy for making you more visible from the side. These are an absolute bargain for commuting or canal paths. I'd not hesitate to buy a set again."
Pros: Great Value, Rugged, Good Fit

High5 Zero Electrolyte Drink - 20 Tabs
ZERO is the new electrolyte drink from High5; it's virtually calorie free (1.4 cal per 100ml) and has a light refreshing taste.
 

Can I add these to a CamelBak water bladder without any issues?

So long as you clean out bladder properly there should be no problems. I'd highly recommend zeros.
